Hello Guix!

I need help with the following:

[1]

When I manually start shepherd as user, the get the error,

*** START ***
rg@secondary ~$ shepherd
Backtrace:
           3 (primitive-load "/run/current-system/profile/bin/shephe…")
In shepherd.scm:
    174:9  2 (main . _)
In shepherd/support.scm:
   388:20  1 (verify-dir _ #:secure? _)
In unknown file:
           0 (stat "/run/user/1000/shepherd" #<undefined>)

ERROR: In procedure stat:
In procedure stat: No such file or directory: "/run/user/1000/shepherd"
*** END ***

What is the correct way to rectify this?

P.S. efraim and lfam, starting a thread to discuss. :-)

[2]

Is there a way to automatically start shepherd as user, when I log-in?
Script or Cron?

Thank you!

Regards,
RG.

It looks like '/run/user/1000/shepherd' doesn't exist. I suppose the
error message could be better, shepherd can't create its socket in that
directory if it can't write to it.

One option is to start shepherd with 'shepherd
--socket=~/.config/shepherd/shepherd.sock' which will use a directory
which should exist already.

I start mine by hand. Unfortunately mcron doesn't have support for the
'@' notation, so '@reboot' doesn't work.

It needs XDG_RUNTIME_DIR to be set, as mentioned in the manual:

https://www.gnu.org/software/shepherd/manual/shepherd.html#Invoking-shepherd

It would be great if this could happen automagically on Guix System.
