Hello Yasuaki,

on a friend’s ARM Macbook, Guix runs fine after installing a QEMU VM
(for which we used a user interface named UTM) with the iso file from
Ubuntu desktop for ARM generic, and then running the usual Guix install
script for installation on a foreign desktop.

(Although QEMU did get stuck once and the Mac needed a reboot.)

However, it is also possible to install Guix System in QEMU, see the
discussion on “Building arm64 guix system image” at
This should be particularly useful when you want to test complete images
for uploading to a web hoster root server.

Generally I suppose the easy way to run Guix on nonfree non-Linux
systems is a VM.  No need to emulate x86_64.
