No. It was not indended to be passed a relative path. I cannot see what meaning that would have - it raises the question "relative to what?". However if somehow we can define what it means to pass the procedure a relative path, then I suppose it could be modified to work. It seems to me like we could just use 'string-prefix?' here instead. Am I missing something? Is it really necessary to define an 'all-subpaths' procedure and use 'member' if 'string-prefix?' is good enough? Well, (string-prefix? "/dev/net" "/dev/networking") would return #t, but the former is not an ancestor of the other. The title of this patch is "Mark /gnu/store as needed for boot." I can see how this change makes that happen. But what is the purpose? I imagine that in some cases, if you don't do this, the initrd might not mount the file system containing the store, which of course would not be good. Do you have a specific problem case in mind? Yes. I tried installing GuixSD with /gnu/store on a different partition to / The installation seemed to go ok, but it failed to boot, presumably because lots of essential things (such as the kernel!) are in /gnu/store J' -- Avoid eavesdropping.
