Re: creating a manifest

thank you very much for your help.

I am learning day by day how to use Guix.

I understood till now that creating manifests mean several packages in one manifest, like in my music profile: ardour, audacity, audacious, musescore.

When I was opening that profile I used musescore, I had to close it and then open audacity and so on.
It seems to me I can’t open several packages at once.
Or I don’t know how to do it, if possible.

Now I realised that to create a manifest means one package, only musescore, or only emacs with all its emacs packages.

Then upgrading the manifest/one profile
would not be a problem.

What would be the difference to have several profiles in my main profile
without haveing guix home,

or to have several profiles in Guix home?

Kind regards

please send the command you used to update the profile and the manifest file inside the profile, i.e. home/gfp/Projekte/Musik/guix-profil/manifest.scm


This was the command I used to upgrade the profile
(because I deleted one package: ardour
in my main profile, so I wanted to install it in this profile)

~$ guix package --upgrade --profile=/home/gfp/Projekte/Musik/guix-profil

Like you, I would expect that to work, but I read the info page again. It says about --upgrade:

   Note that this upgrades package to the latest version of packages
      found in the distribution currently installed.

And the latest version of musescore is 4.0.2, so it tries to install that.

So I guess the right command would be:

guix package -m /home/gfp/Projekte/Musik/musik.scm --profile /home/gfp/Projekte/Musik/guix-profil


here the musik.scm:

I actually meant /home/gfp/Projekte/Musik/guix-profil/manifest and not /home/gfp/Projekte/Musik/musik.scm, but now I don't need it anymore.
