Great, my mail client probably fooled me again... Sorry again for
sending a private message, this is my first real discussion on a mailing
list. Is there a way to keep messages on the list, I'm using "respond
to a mailing list" option, but it somehow doesn't do what I want.

I wasn't familiar with this remove procedure from srfi-1, I've been
learning Guile only for 3 month, thank you for explaining. The system
initialized correctly, but the same thing happens while trying to boot
into the recently installed system (removing gdm didn't help). I copied
the whole /var/log folder so I'm attaching zip-compressed folder below.
And also a strange thing happened - don't know if it's related, but
after switching my system to "UEFI mode" screen resolution using
linux-libre, which was really low, now changed normal (as on systems
with blobs loaded).
