Hi Roman,

Roman Scherer 写道:

links to itself.

FYI, it should link to its parent:


(So, yes, you could …/posix/posix/posix/posix/… all night long.)

Since I read I should not mess with the store, any
ideas how to get rid of that file system loop in a safe way?

You could try

 # guix gc --verify=contents,repair

and Guix should detect the mismatch and refresh tzdata from a substitute server.

The unsupported alternative would be to bind-mount /gnu/store somewhere and manually relink the file.

I already tried re-installing it, but that had no effect.

It wouldn't.

Kind regards,
