Unfortunately, building the ISO image has broken since I was
successfully using it .
One other issue I was thinking of recently was the size of the image. I
checked an ISO of the installation system I generated a while ago, and
it's 1.1GB in size. A actual CD can only hold 0.7GB of data. This might
be something that just needs documenting, saying that this is for a
DVD, and not a CD, or, it the size could be reduced so that it fits on
When I build the installation system, and run guix size, it says 1031.0
MiB, so I guess looking at the breakdown there and trying to reduce it
would be a way to start, if this is a worthwhile objective.
I don't have any use for a physical CD installation image, so if anyone
is interested in having this, now is the time to say so?
