Cc’ing firstname.lastname@example.org I suspect something like the attached patch would help (and expand the closure of network-manager to always include openconnect). To test, follow section “Building from Git” from the manual or Laura’s video 04-packaging-part-one.webm from <https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/guix-devel/2019-07/msg00249.html>, but after the initial clone command, do git apply the-attached.patch Then after make, do sudo -E ./pre-inst-env guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm (or whatever your configuration file is called). I cannot test right now and have never used openconnect. It is quite possible I made a mistake. Regards, Florian
