Hello,

I am new to Guix but it seems to be the perfect tools for running a small cluster of servers that I need to administer. The one thing that so far is holding me back from doing so is the absence of a package for Caddy (https://caddyserver.com) which this cluster relies on heavily. I hope in the future to package it properly, but it has a number of golang dependencies that are not themselves even packaged, and I am far from an expert on building Go software -- it seems doable but it would be a relatively big undertaking.

Instead, I thought I could create a private package with copy-build-system and simply install the pre-built binaries that the Caddy project provides. This is the caddy-package.scm that I have come up with:

When I build this file with `guix build -f caddy-package.scm -K', it fails with this rather mysterious (to me) error during the unpack phase:

Would anyone be able to give me any advice here? This seems to comport with the Reference Manual blurb (https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/guix.html#index-copy_002dbuild_002dsystem) about copy-build-system and also appears similar to several official packages using copy-build-system (e.g. gcide, vim-neocomplete, neverball) that I looked to as examples. Clearly though, there is some nuance that I am missing.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Thank you Julien, This was indeed the problem!

Many apologies to everyone for the double-post as well.

I don't think this is related to the copy-build-system, because it doesn't change the unpack phase. Whathappens here is that guix expects the content of the tarball to be in a subdirectory, which is not the case here. In the source definition, you should use url-fetch/tarbomb instead of url-fetch.

Hello,

I am new to Guix but it seems to be the perfect tools for running a small cluster of servers that I need to administer. The one thing that so far is holding me back from doing so is the absence of a package for Caddy (https://caddyserver.com) which this cluster relies on heavily. I hope in the future to package it properly, but it has a number of golang dependencies that are not themselves even packaged, and I am far from an expert on building Go software -- it seems doable but it would be a relatively big undertaking.

Instead, I thought I could create a private package with copy-build-system and simply install the pre-built binaries that the Caddy project provides. This is the caddy-package.scm that I have come up with:
