Re: converting a distro to guixsd

Hello Kevin!

Why yes there is!

Note: We recommend the use of this shell installer script. The script automates 
the download, installation, and initial configuration steps described below. It 
should be run as the root user. As root, you can thus run this: 

cd /tmp
chmod +x

It is possible to convert say Debian into Guix System.  After you install guix 
the package manager onto debian, then you create for config.scm file, then run 
as root

guix system reconfigure config.scm

Please note that this is perhaps not the ideal way to use install guix system, 
because a majority of debian specific files will still
be present.  So you will have a mix match of stale unused debian files along 
side guix specific files.

Have you tried the guix system installation?
