Hello Paul,

This is a hard run. Getting that system back is not easy. There are two ways I did that. The easier is to try to guix copy a working new guix from another machine. Then you can guix pull using that.

Hi Konrad,

Thank you for your help.

I have hit a snag.  At the compile stage I do:

$ ./configure --localstatedir=/var

I get:

configure: error: Guile-Git is missing; please install it.

I would install guile-git if I could but it takes me back to the same
problem; neither the source nor a substitute for libgit2 are available.

Another option: you couls try to find the source and guix download it from somewhere.

Most probably this would require several iterations, as requirements were added to the build that were not previously packaged. Also we do not have so old substitues, so most probably this would involve rebuilding the world several times.

I have looked for the files on but I cannot find the
0.12-era versions.  Maybe they have been deleted.  Could they (or
should they) be restored ? 

Best regards,

Best regards,
