guix installation on nixos

I am having trouble installing guix on nixos. I have specified the build users and the guix daemon isystemd service in my configuration.nix file and all works.

I am then following the binary installation instructions. As root I then try to test by running

guix package -i hello

However rather than install the small hello package, guix is installing a large number of dependencies such as gcc etc. It is taking a long time. IS this normal ?

I am also having trouble setting up the environment for running guix as non-root user.

This is on a laptop.

Is this the right mailing list to ask for help ?
