Hi Guix,

After a recent pull and system reconfigure, gdm does not start at boot. Instead, I am left with a text console login. sirgazil also described the problem on irc, "I just did guix pull and sudo system reconfigure, and GDM never started after waiting for about 10 minutes. This may be the same problem gnutec was having yesterday..."

The last known good guix for me is 7842ddcbc118cbc2799e22651732b7cdc06b93ee and the first known bad commit is df6ce9fcb455ac59372f1025e450005ea3190614.

My operating system config is included below:
