Thanks!  I look forward to my increased use of `guix` 😊

Hi Josh,

The log you posted reads this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Creating 4.0 filesystem on /gnu/store/mhhlqyazyvwz72y6dwh56fs1zlrvrl0h-squashfs-pack.gz.squashfs, block size 131072.


Number of uids 2
        unknown (0)
        nixbld (987)
Number of gids 2
        unknown (0)
        nixbld (980)
Failed to read existing filesystem - will not overwrite - ABORTING!
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I was able to reproduce it on a CentOS 7 system and to strace the
‘mksquashfs’ process, and found that this had to do with access to
SELinux extended attributes.

Fixed in commit 53c594cb3f1f783fea18be6da23a863b00c14f5f.
