May I ask why you are trying to manually run xinit?  Is your favorite wm
or desktop environment not packaged as a service in Guix?  Ahh, I see you
are just trying to start Emacs.  Very awesome!

If all you are wanting is to use Emacs, you could always just launch Emace
from the virtual console, and not have mouse support.

Maybe you're running into linux-libre GPU isses.  I think the AMD graphics
cards prefer to use some binary blobs to operate properly...

Though I thought xf86-video-vesa was supposed to run on almost anything.
