Wait... there is no memtest86 in Grub by default. How do you install this Grub module
on Guix?

Memtest86+ isn't a GRUB module, it's a bootable (as one would a kernel) stand-alone executable.

You can build it manually for now¹ or download a precompiled binary² and boot it from your existing GRUB's command line.

Or boot anything like System Rescue CD or similar, which almost always include it out of the box.

Kind regards,


1. It's been on my packaging to-do list for a while. I'll give it a stab this weekend. 2. Since it runs without an OS, the binary doesn't need te be patched or otherwise Guixified.
