Sorry for the delay.

Without the -p option, ‘guix package’ just look at the user’s profile,
which is ~/.guix-profile.  Initially it’s empty.

On the complete system, there are, however, packages installed
system-wide under /run/current-system/profile.  Eventually one should be
able to run:

  guix package -p /run/current-system/profile -I

That doesn’t work in 0.7.

For a list of pre-defined services, please see:

The lshd service is listed under “Network Services”.  An example of how
to use it is shown at

In general, you would find something in the store by using ‘guix build’
or ‘guix package’ rather than browsing /gnu/store manually.
