Hi,

I was wondering if I can do `guix system init` with guix installed on top off a foreign distro?

Katarina.

It is possible, but it will replace your current distro with Guix System. You might have troubles booting, I tgink you also need to make sure /etc is empty (but exists) before rebooting. "mv /etc{,.bak} && mkdir /etc" should do it, without destroying existing data in case you want to go back to the previous distso.

Use at your own risks :)

Hey Katarina!  You've got a great first name!

Actually I think you can do 'guix system reconfigure config.scm' on top
of a foreign distro.  That's how some people initially guix system-ized
digital ocean droplets.  :)

You might want to double check on #guix in irc if that's correct
though...I sometimes make mistakes.  :)

Also, any help questions are best sent to help-guix@gnu.org.

Welcome to the guix family!

Joshua
