Hi znavko

Most of the packages used have prebuilt substitutes. Make sure that you have authorized getting substitutes from the server,

Subject:Binary substitutes on Guix. When?

Hello, developers!

As mentioned in 'Substitutes' section of Guix Manual "The server is a front-end to an official build farm that builds packages from Guix continuously for some architectures, and makes them available as substitutes."

And the roadmap contains this:
"* Features scheduled for 1.0
- larger & more robust build farm + we need a powerful, dedicated front-end"

Now when the users come to try, they are just seeing endless compilation process. And Guix looks not friendly with such an option. This is a bottle-neck.

Pre-built packages are needed. When will it be realized?
