Greetings!

I am attempting to unpack and use a program in .tar.gz format for programming lisp.
When I unpack and try to use .tar.gz, it says the file doesn't exist.

What should be my path forward to try and get this to run on Guix?

Thank you,
Kozo

If you can see the tar.gz file, using, say, ls, then perhaps the error
message is badly phrased.  The missing file is not the tar.gz file,
but rather another file, a "system" file, which is needed to perform
the operation.

I suggest: If you can, create a tar.gz file, from any file you have,
then attempt the same operation on the newly created tar.gz file.

oo--JS.

The first step would be to figure out which file doesn't exist. If your
program was compiled for a different operating system than Guix, it's
probably missing the linker / loader.

I recommend installing strace and then doing:

`strace -f $your_program 2>&1 | tee ~/tmp/strace.log`

The strace.log should help you learn what is missing.

Ah, thanks, Leo!  In my hasty response I missed that the unpacking of
the .tar.gz file had succeeded.

oo--JS.
