Hi Adam

Thanks for the response. I am using Guix System and tried to configure a configuration file for offlineimap with guix home

(simple-service 'offlineimaprc
                          (list `(".offlineimaprc"
                                  ,(mixed-text-file "offlineimaprc" "

accounts = Gmail
maxsyncaccounts = 3
pythonfile = ~/.config/

[Account Gmail]
localrepository = Local
remoterepository = Remote

[Repository Local]
type = Maildir
localfolders = ~/Maildir

[Repository Remote]
type = IMAP
remotehost =
remoteuser =
remotepasseval = mailpassword('gmail')
ssl = yes
sslcacertfile = " nss-certs "/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
maxconnections = 1

yes it is a really odd behavior, because when I run guix shell nss-certs, I can find $GUIX_ENVIRONMENT/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt...

Hello Guix

For an application I need a ca-certificates.crt file and according to [1] I can get it from the package nss-certs, but

ls $(guix build nss-certs) | grep ca-certificates.crt
does not list any certificates, what am I doing wrong?


Hi Reza,

I think it might depend on a couple of things, are you using guix system or guix
as a package manager in a foreign distro?

Does it maybe have something to do with the _profile_ that you are using to
install the packages? I've been confused by this behaviour recently myself.
Do you know what profile you are using to install the nss-certs and the package
that requires them? And is this profile active?

If you provide a bit more info, maybe I can offer a few examples that help to
