Hi!

We have just published a blog post on building your own Guix System with
GNU/Hurd and running it in a virtual machine; the road we traveled since
beginning of April and what is possible right now.  Read it here:

Enjoy!

Thank you guys for all the time and energy you've put into the Hurd!
Can't wait to run my own childhurd!

Cheers!

Amazing!


On foreign distro, I have missed how to setup the “childhurd“.  The
“guix system” is still a bit mysterious to me…


Using this command line (from gnu/system/examples/bare-hurd.tmpl):

    guix environment --ad-hoc qemu \
         -- qemu-system-i386 -enable-kvm -m 512  \
          -device rtl8139,netdev=net0 -netdev user,id=net0,hostfwd=tcp:127.0.0.1:10022-:2222 \
         -snapshot -hda \
         $(guix system disk-image -t hurd-raw bare-hurd.tmpl)

it is telling me that the ’ssh’ service is not started.  Therefore,

    ssh -p 10022 root@localhost
    ssh: connect to host localhost port 10022: Connection refused

What do I miss?


Then,

    login> login root RET RET
    root@guixygnu ~# $(guix build hello)/bin/hello

downloads, builds, and displays as expected “Hello, world!”. \o/


Last, I am confused:

   debian$ guix build hello --target=586-pc-gnu hello
   /gnu/store/09sz4qsqp3zgnbaxhzppspaxihwmfzll-hello-2.10

   root@guixygnu ~# guix build hello
   /gnu/store/<other-hash>-hello-2.10

What do I miss?


(Sorry for these naive questions.)


Thank you!  All is really neat!

All the best,
simon

Yeah, guix system in essence "just" builds a disk-image (aka vm-image).
Then, qemu can start that image.

I have no idea.  This exact command works for me.  Maybe you had bad
luck/try again?  Does `herd start ssh' work after you login as root?

It could be that your "bad luck" comes from qemu networking -- maybe you
could try running your foreign distro's qemu instead of guix's?

It's tricky; --target is != --system: --target is a cross-build.  IOW,
--system => (%current-system), --target => (%current-target-system).

So,

    guix build hello --system=i586-gnu hello

should give the identical hash.

You're welcome.  Thanks for looking at this!

> Thank you!  All is really neat!

Hehe, that's what we are doing it for;

Have fun!

Dear Janneke,

Thank you for the help!  I have fun. :-)

I do not know if it was bad luck or if "herd start ssh" does the trick
but here we go! \o/

What is the target?  i586-pc-gnu or i586-gnu?  The blog post mentions
'i586-pc-gnu' at the beginning and then 'i586-gnu'.  I suppose it is
'i586-gnu' since using this target produces the expected hash.
What do I miss?


All the best,
simon

Yeah, this can be confusing.  The target is a triplet
(https://www.gnu.org/savannah-checkouts/gnu/autoconf/manual/autoconf-2.69/html_node/Specifying-Target-Triplets.html),
e.g.  i586-pc-gnu, x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu; system is specified by the
platform, or interpreter name; see e.g. gnu/packages/bootstrap.scm:
glibc-dynamic-linker for a list of platforms.

Greetings,
Janneke

Ah ok!  Sorry, you already told me: --target != --system.  Just previously.

Well, the Zen of Python (python -c 'import this') seems appropriate
here: "Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're
Dutch".  :-) Even if it is only inherited from autoconf. :-)

Cheers,
simon
