Hi Guix Development,

I rely on the -C option below to compile ./pre-inst-env  .

guix environment -C guix


(I learned the technique through 
https://gitlab.com/pjotrp/guix-notes/blob/master/INSTALL.org - 
./pre-inst-env just won't compile correctly unless I follow the
instructions on the page)

However, this feature has become unavailable after the
commit  8bc5ca5160db...

~/co/guix (master)$ guix environment -C guix
guix environment: error: cannot create container: unprivileged user
cannot create user namespaces
guix environment: error: please set
/proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone to "1"



The commit details are below:

Is “guix environment --pure” not enough?

Hi Ricardo,

No, it wasn't enough.  (I could be wrong - I am still learning Guix. 😅)  

But I spent a lot of time picking my hair out, trying to figure out why guix edit hello would not find the scm file under my locally checked out guix repository.

When I followed the instructions on the link, the "bulletproof" way, my problem immediately went away.   And I thought it was probably fixed by the  -C option (creating a container) 😄

Hi,

Thanks for the report.  Are you using Guix System or Guix on foreign?

Aside that nothing, --pure, or -C should work.  The nothing could not,
depending on your setup.  Anyway.

Have you tried to do the recommandation?

     please set /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone to "1"

(as root if you can).  For example, on Debian, I have been doing that
since ever.  And even I have documented it to not forget when I
reinstall. :-)

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
    Be careful !
    #+begin_src shell
      # as root
      echo "kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone = 1" > /etc/sysctl.d/local.conf
      sysctl --system
    #+end_src
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---


All the best,
simon

As root:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone

Yes, it is common on Debian and such.

Hi everyone!

I use both:
* Guix System with Linux(non-Libre) Kernel, straight on my desktop PC
* Guix System on Linux subsystem on Windows 10 (https://github.com/giuliano108/guix-packages/blob/master/notes/Guix-on-WSL2.md) on Microsoft Surface Book

and both started to exhibit the same problem with the commitid I reported.

When switch to the commit id immediately before that, the problem goes away.

I tried to set the number as mentioned but I could not figure out how to do it...  Do you know how to do this on Guix System?

Cheers,
Yasu

Hi Pj,

Thank you for you reply (and your wonderful Hacking Guide 
https://gitlab.com/pjotrp/guix-notes/blob/master/HACKING.org)!

I tried the command and it didn't work...
I use Guix System (not  a foreign distribution) as described at the
bottom :-)

Hi,

I really don't know much about Linux but it looks like the problem I
reported has something to do with Debian?

https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/303213/how-to-enable-user-namespaces-in-the-kernel-for-unprivileged-unshare

Now, I don't use Debian at all (I use Guix System) and do you think
this is a Bug in Guix (in that this Debian specific word should never
even be mentioned in Guix?)

To summarize this bug again:

The Bug:
The container command no longer works,  after the commit
8bc5ca5160db3d82bd5b6b2b7ed80c96f42bd33e.
guix environment -C


Additional Information:
	Instead of working as it did until the commit, the command now
dies with the following error mesage:
		guix environment: error: cannot create container:
unprivileged user cannot create user namespaces
		guix environment: error: please set
/proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone to "1"

	The message "please set
/proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone to "1",
	seems irrelevant to Guix System users as it may only relate to
Debian users.
	I don't know why this Debian specific message is here in the
first place...	

Disclaimer :-):
	I am assuming this is indeed Debian specific (I tried to
install LinuxLinux (the Guix default) but failed - my AMD graphics card
won't allow me to even boot, unless I use regular Linux.	)

	I scanned for the phrase in LinuxLibre source code but there
was no mention of it:
~/Downloads$ tar -xf linux-libre-5.9.12-gnu.tar.xz
~/Downloads$ cd linux-5.9.12/
~/Downloads/linux-5.9.12$ rg -i unprivileged_userns_clone


	Just FYI: the problem phrase is indeed found in the Debian
Kernel Patch:
~/co/debian$ rg -i unprivileged_userns_clone

	linux/debian/patches/debian/add-sysctl-to-disallow-
unprivileged-CLONE_NEWUSER-by-default.patch
	25:+extern int unprivileged_userns_clone;
	27:+#define unprivileged_userns_clone 0
	36:+    if ((clone_flags & CLONE_NEWUSER) &&
!unprivileged_userns_clone)
	47:+    if ((unshare_flags & CLONE_NEWUSER) &&
!unprivileged_userns_clone) {
	65:+extern int unprivileged_userns_clone;
	77:+            .procname       = "unprivileged_userns_clone",
	78:+            .data           = &unprivileged_userns_clone,
	96:+int unprivileged_userns_clone;





Cheers,
Yasu

It's not Debian-specific.  It is a bug in Guix.

It should try to create a namespace and properly report an error 
iff that fails, not prematurely abort after farting about in 
/proc.

A separate unprivileged-user-namespace-supported? is broken by 
design.  Reverting commit 8bc5ca5 works around this but it wasn't 
to blame.

Kind regards,

Hi,

Please try the recommendation. Have you tried it?

  please set /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone to "1"

As root, you just do:

  echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone

then “guix environment -C” should work as expected.  To do the trick
automatically with Sheperd, I do not know, but I am sure that the
systemd equivalent 

  echo "kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone = 1" > /etc/sysctl.d/local.conf
  sysctl --system

seems doable with Guix System.


On my system, and I need explanations if it does not work similarly on
yours, I simply do:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ guix environment -C --ad-hoc hello -- hello 
guix environment: error: cannot create container: unprivileged user cannot create user namespaces
guix environment: error: please set /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone to "1"

$ su -
Password:
# echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone 
# logout

$ guix environment -C --ad-hoc hello -- hello 
Hello, world!
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Hope that helps,
simon

Hi Zimoun,

I tried as you suggested but it didn't work...


   root@guix ~# echo "kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone = 1" >
   /etc/sysctl.d/local.conf
   -bash: /etc/sysctl.d/local.conf: No such file or directory
   root@guix ~# sysctl --system
   root@guix ~# logout
   ~$ guix environment -C
   guix environment: error: cannot create container: unprivileged user
   cannot create user namespaces
   guix environment: error: please set
   /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone to "1"


Now, if this posting were to be belived, I think this term
   kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone

   is specific to Debian Linux, and does not exist outside of that circle.
       
   It disables a bit of "hardening" that Debian patches into their 
   distribution kernel. If you're not running such a kernel, it will
   fail 
   and not do anything, as such a setting doesn't even exist in the
   mainline Linux kernel.

    
   I wonder how this term came in to Guix in the first place?

Hi All,

I believe the recommended suggestion is Debian specific is it not?

My kernel supports user namespaces and doesn't expose that file at that
location.

The only way I can work around the issue is to downgrade guix to the commit
on the master branch right before 8bc5ca5160db3d82bd5b6b2b7ed80c96f42bd33e

guix pull --commit=0d5d1bdf911659f60601058e8e1678187b7ba664
--allow-downgrades

Best,
Jesse

Hi!

I can reproduce the issue since I 'recondigure'd my Guix System.
I'm on cebfb29abb151ede95696181d2446c63504593d7.

Guix' bug?

Hi Pierre,

Can you try, as root on Guix System:

$ echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone

If you could report success or failure that would be helpful; the
unprivileged-user-namespace-supported? test in gnu/build/linux-
container.scm should be the same irrespective of the underlying
distribution (Debian, CentOS, Guix System ...).

Best regards,

Paul.

Hi Pierre,

You get something as:

  $ guix environment -C guix
  guix environment: error: cannot create container: unprivileged user cannot create user namespaces
  guix environment: error: please set /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone to "1"

right?   Have you tried to do the recommendation?

      please set /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone to "1"

in other words, as root:

  # echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone
  $ guix environment -C --ad-hoc hello -- hello

and report.


Thanks,
simon

In gnu/build/linux-container.scm, it reads:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(define (unprivileged-user-namespace-supported?)
  "Return #t if user namespaces can be created by unprivileged users."
  (let ((userns-file "/proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone"))
    (if (file-exists? userns-file)
        (eqv? #\1 (call-with-input-file userns-file read-char))
        #t)))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Does it mean that the Linux kernel on Guix System does not support
namespaces by unprivileged users?

Turning #t to #f should work on Guix System and it appears to me a
severe bug if not.  What do I miss?  Please could someone fill my gap? :-)


All the best,
simon

The /proc/sys/kernel_unprivileged_userns_clone file is specific to
Debian and Ubuntu packaged linux kernel; it is a patchset not applied
upstream, as far as I am aware. I'm not sure if other distros support
disabling and enabling this feature using this mechanism.

  https://salsa.debian.org/kernel-team/linux/-/blob/master/debian/patches/debian/add-sysctl-to-disallow-unprivileged-CLONE_NEWUSER-by-default.patch

live well,

Thanks, that gives us a clue.  So all or part of the path
'/proc/sys/kernel' is missing?

Hi Vagrant,

Sorry if I am naive, I am trying to understand and it appears that
pieces are missing in my bag. :-)

Thanks.  I still do not understand the message from Guix System:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
~/co/guix (master)$ guix environment -C guix
guix environment: error: cannot create container: unprivileged user cannot create user namespaces
guix environment: error: please set /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone to "1"
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

(see
<https://yhetil.org/guix/e5c86d238ca5174b745b8ea6cb0cb6ad6b20aa5e.camel@yasuaki.com>)

Why does this appear if «set /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone to "1"» 
does not make sense on Guix System?


Then Tobias answered: (see <https://yhetil.org/guix/87k0tux63a.fsf@nckx>)

        yasu 写道:

        It's not Debian-specific.  It is a bug in Guix.

        It should try to create a namespace and properly report an error 
        iff that fails, not prematurely abort after farting about in 
        /proc.

        A separate unprivileged-user-namespace-supported? is broken by 
        design.  Reverting commit 8bc5ca5 works around this but it wasn't 
        to blame.

so I miss why does a similar patch as,

>   https://salsa.debian.org/kernel-team/linux/-/blob/master/debian/patches/debian/add-sysctl-to-disallow-unprivileged-CLONE_NEWUSER-by-default.patch

is not applied to Guix System?  Is it because a technical or else reason
behind?  Or is it simply because no one takes the time to fix the
problem?



All the best,
simon

Nope, my /proc/sys/kernel has 121 direct files and directories :/

Hi,

Well, it is expected.  And now all is clear.  Explanations starting
there:

   <http://logs.guix.gnu.org/guix/2020-12-07.log#211011>

Quickly said, the initial code was assuming Debian-like kernel patches
as Vagrant reported and this is not in the linux-libre source code with
a wrong Guix error message.

One bug is still there. :-)


All the best,
simon

Another data point FYI:

On my pureos system, which is based on debian upstream:
    uname -a
    =-> Linux LionPure 4.19.0-12-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.152-1 (2020-10-18) x86_64 GNU/Linux
and
    ls -l /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone
        -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 Dec  8 03:03 /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone

and (noticing that the items appear to be short and ascii lines, hence thereupon  head :)

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
od -a -t x1 /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone 
0000000   0  nl
         30  0a
0000002
head /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone 
0
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Not sure this tells you anything useful, but there is also:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
head /proc/sys/user/*
==> /proc/sys/user/max_cgroup_namespaces <==
128163

HTH some way :)

This issue seems to be gone for me with kernel 5.10.x.
I guess it was a kernel bug then.

This could mean you have to create the sysctl.d directory.
Try running this:
```
# mkdir -p /etc/sysctl.d/
# echo "kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone = 1" > /etc/sysctl.d/local.conf
```
