Installed on foreign system (Pengwin on WSL-2).

Tried the installation of "hello" as a sanity check. It fails with:

guix install: error: cannot kill processes for uid `999' : failed with
exit code 1


I've been stuck here about a week. The usual diagnosis seems to be that
guix-daemon isn't running, but it is:

╭─falis@garuda-windows /home/falis  ‹system›
╰─$ ps -ef|grep guix
root      7013     1  0 13:31 ?        00:00:00
falis     8966  8898  0 14:27 tty3     00:00:00 grep --color=auto guix
╭─falis@garuda-windows /home/falis  ‹system›


All of the usual package commands appear to fail the same way, and have
no observable effect otherwise.

Any recommended lines of inquiry?



I have the same issue on wsl-1. You could perhaps try using docker instead. Personally I was using guix pack -RR manifest.scm or only 1 R don't remember and unpacked that on WSL1 which was bothersome but might be another solution for you as well.

If you find a good solution for any of the WSL versions please let me know!
