Yeah, though each person has their own idea of what “server” or
“desktop” means (to me “desktop” means ratpoison, but I’ve heard about
that GNOME thing that many like to use ;-)).  I guess we could add more
examples, probably not for this time, though.

OK, I’ve added a note to emphasize that.

Yes, though again it’s difficult because any change in the config may
lead to additional downloads.

So you did a ‘guix system init’ that failed with the error above, and
then you rebooted and got a broken GRUB?

Unless I’m mistaken, a “build failed” error prevents the rest of the
installation, including GRUB install, from happening.  Not sure what

Thanks for your feedback!
