Hey all - I tried on IRC, but was told that this might be a better place. I'm
wondering if someone here has experience with a non-root install. Optimally,
is there by this point a guix-install.sh for non-root? I know it's doable, eg:
I was able to get my sysadmin to create a writable /gnu, which I gather will
allow me to install binaries, rather than recomplie everything, since I'll have
the right path. Now that I've read the install script, I see that it also uses
/var/guix. Do I need to ask for that, or is there a way around it, by putting
it in /gnu/var, maybe? I assume I can put /root/.config/guix in my home
directory, but I also see we need a guixbuild group. How can I get away
without this and still run the server manually?
All input appreciated!
