Hi guix !

I continue to dig into guix home, and thanks of ~dominicm src hut dotfile repo (Yubikey config works !) and your help on previous message on this mailling list, everything goes pretty well …

But … actually, i’m stuck with a mutable configuration with my password management.

Using password-manager (pass) with tomb (<>) and pass-tomb extension seems not possible due to read write problem. Guix home create  symbolic link with file in read mode, so how so you manage dotfile in this case ?

(simple-service `pass-secret-service
               `((“.password.tomb” ,(local-file “../secrets/password.tomb”))

Output of tomb command :

bash-5.1$ tomb open .password.tomb
.tomb-real  .  Commanded to open tomb .password.tomb
.tomb-real [W] Tomb file is not writable: .password.tomb
.tomb-real [E] Tomb command failed: open

It’s possible to open passing option “-o ro” for mounting in read only, but it’s not very interesting if you want to create/store new password :)

Best regads,
