Dear guix,

Your work on a functional package manager has perked my interest and
compelled me to try it out for myself.  Unfortunately GNU Guix doesn't
run on Fedora due to the dependence on nscd, I thus had to resort to
downloading your qcow2 image available at
https://ftpmirror.gnu.org/gnu/guix/guix-system-vm-image-1.4.0.x86_64-linux.qcow2
I checked the signature and ran the image with the following command
(which I copied from the reference manual page on running GNU Guix on a
virtual machine, with the difference that I increased the amount of
memory because the system couldn't do a «guix pull» without freezing
and invoking the OOM killer):

> qemu-system-x86_64 \
>    -nic user,model=virtio-net-pci \
>    -enable-kvm -m 4096 \
>    -device virtio-blk,drive=myhd \
>    -drive 
> if=none,file=guix-system-vm-image-1.4.0.x86_64-linux.qcow2,id=myhd

However I noticed that every time I run «guix system reconfigure», I
get a file system check failure and am dumped into a bournish shell
when I reboot.  I therefore tried to see what happens if I simply do
«guix pull», followed by «sudo guix system reconfigure
/run/current-system/configuration.scm» without doing anything else,
which from what I understand should always work.  However, this also
leads to a file system check failure on reboot.

At the beginning of the system reconfigure command output, there's this
warning:

> guix system: warning: cannot determine provenance for current system

And at the end of the output there is:

> (map (# ?) ?)).

I have sent you the last few lines in an attachment.  (it only contains
the last lines, because the xfce-terminal doesn't remember that much
output and because I couldn't figure out how to get tee to save all
output)

On reboot I get the following (transcribed, since I don't know how I
can copy-paste the vm output to the host machine):

> loading kernel modules...

If in the boot menu I choose to run an old configuration, the error
does not occur.

I hope this report will be of help.
