Hi Vincent,

Vincent Legoll <address@hidden> skribis:

BTW, how would I test that (modified guix-install + nix/ ?

I've modified guix-install to handle runit-based distros (for void
linux) and nix/, like in the sysv-init enablement Danny
submitted lately.

I've seen the rebuild instructions at the end of binary installation
page in the manual, but I couldn't make that take my local
modifications in account. I think there's some required steps
that are only made by the release make target.
The ‘guix-binary.x86_64-linux.tar.xz’ makefile target runs:

   guix pack guix …

So you would first need to update the ‘guix’ package, using:

   make update-guix-package

and committing the result.

Thanks, I'll try that today.

I want to test, at least once before submitting my patch series
for review. Even if I think it would be nice-to-have for the 1.1.0...
What changes are you referring to?  (Sorry, I’m getting lost!)

The support for runit-based distros in & its

accompanying added file in the binary tarball. But I will

not ask to delay the release for that though, just if it can

be merged before the final build ok.
