It looks like it is an issue related to tmpfs, again ...

lantw44, I ran the build on my host machine without manual chroot/container - no virtualization was involved except the one used by makepkg itself (fakeroot?). I'm not sure how can I test unprivileged user namespace functionality directly but I believe that it's working fine - I have unprivileged lxcs running on this machine and "unshare" command has spawned new bash session without any errors.

Did you run the test inside a chroot or a container? Can you use 'unshare' to successfully create an unprivileged user namespace in the environment you ran the test?

Hi, It seems that I can't build guix due to failing tests/guix-environment-container. AFAIK this is related to userns but "cat /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone" returns 1 and in fact I have unprivileged lxcs running on the very same host. test-suite.log content is here:

Hello, you can find the information on Arch wiki:

Hi. Installed this recently.

I missed an explanation post-install that explains to me that I have to enable and start the daemon and add the buildusers to be able to run/use guix at all. Alternatively that the package sets it all up and remains quiet.

Ah, you're right. Thanks for the response and for maintaining this package. Everything went smoothly for me once I followed the below example and changed DNS servers to pass some of the check() tests.

/gnu and /var/guix will be created by guix-daemon when you start the service the first time.

Installing with this package build produced no /gnu directory and no /var/guix directory for me. Is this supposed to be the case or did I do something wrong?

This AUR package will build with pacaur only if the user edits the PKGBUILD file and removes/comments the check() function.

Otherwise the check() function gives this error:

==> ERROR: The working directory cannot be longer than 46 bytes

I was able to build the guix package and test it in a clean VM, it doesn't build on my archlinux host and it can't be built easily with the devtools since the guix AUR package requires other 2 AUR packages as build dependencies.

You still have to follow the guix manual to run the additional steps after install manually for now.
