Hi,

I do not understand why I get this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ ssh chouib -t guix build hello
/gnu/store/a462kby1q51ndvxdv3b6p0rsixxrgx1h-hello-2.10
Connection to x.x.x.x closed.

$ guix copy --from=chouib /gnu/store/a462kby1q51ndvxdv3b6p0rsixxrgx1h-hello-2.10
retrieving 1 store item from 'x.x.x.x'...
guix copy: error: implementation cannot deal with > 32-bit integers
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

What do I miss?  This message comes from 'serialise.cc' therefore is
it a daemon issue?

Thanks in advance for any explanations.

All the best,
simon

This is ‘guix copy’’s very own way of saying that the remote machine is
lacking /etc/guix/signing-key.{pub,sec}, or something along these lines.

Could you check that everything is in order?

Then we’ll take a look to see how we can, ahem, improve diagnostics.

Thanks,
Ludo’.

Hehe!  Now I remember.  I asked the same thing about another machine.

Now, it works.

Well, it could nice to run "sudo guix archive --generate-key" with the
bash installer script; with a question
The manual needs improvement I guess.  Well, let me see if I can send
something. :-)
And yes, the daemon should report something friendlier. :-)  Maybe
simply another message suggesting that.  WDYT?

Cheers,
simon
