The following message has been forwarded to this bug again. There are some details removed which will not be useful to anyone but me - I don't think many people are running Gentoo here so I was told to remove the output of "emerge --info" as this is only useful to recreate a somewhat similar system.
To reply to your bug (as I wrote before), just reply to the initial info message or.. If this doesn't get sorted out use $bu...@debbugs.gnu.org. More on this can be found here: https://debbugs.gnu.org/Developer.html which took me long enough myself. The debbugs team of gnu should really document this more visible. dian_ce...@zoho.com writes: > I'm just sending this to you since I think I might have figured out what is > happening, and I don't know how to respond to bugs via the mailing list. > Instruction on replying to bugs via the mailing list would be quite a help. > > Basically, /var/lib/guix/profiles/per-user/$USER/guix-profile doesn't exist. > For > example, on the root account on my machine (I've run guix pull multiple times > as > root, and even tried to install icecat as a normal user, plus running guix > pull > several times as a normal user) $HOME/.guix-profile points to a nonexistent > file/directory, and where it points to > (/var/lib/guix/profiles/per-user/root/guix-profile) simply doesn't exist.
