Hi Cyril,

Thanks for your quick reply. :-)

In past years I usually do have LightningTalk to introduce GNU related projects in COSCUP <http://coscup.org>, the biggest open source conference in my country, which will have more than 1000 attendees.

I think Guix is a cool project with it's Version Control (?) function so people can revert their package status if they did something wrong and broke something, so I would like to have a short presentation about Guix onGNU/Hurd to COSCUP.

Thanks for your amazing works, and hope the problem could be solved recently. :-)

Best wishes,

First of all, thanks for trying Guix on GNU/Hurd! There is no bug tracking system, just this mailing list.

In /usr/include/errno.h:

/* The Hurd <bits/errno.h> defines `error_t' as an enumerated type so
   that printing `error_t' values in the debugger shows the names.  We
   might need this definition sometimes even if this file was included
   before.  */

Which explains your issue. I think this is more of a Nix or GNU bug. According to the GNU documentation (http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/html_node/Argp-Parser-Functions.html#Argp-Parser-Functions), the parse_opt function is fine. Should we ask the Hurd people how they handle this ?
