     Maybe it???s not necessary: we can set ???LANGUAGE??? to a language that 
     not necessarily have a corresponding locale, like ???eo???.

     That was in QEMU without networking:
       qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm guixsd-graphical-installer-x86-64-linux 
-m 512
     ???ip -o link??? shows lo and ens3, both down.

That should have worked.  It'd be great if you could get a stack trace.
     BTW (guix build syscalls) has procedures to deal with network interfaces
     that might be useful here.

Thanks for the tip.  I'll see if I can do the necesary things in terms of those.
