The "autoreconf -vi" command can be used to generate the build system
infrastructure; it reports an error if an inappropriate version of the
above packages is being used.
Run the "bootstrap" script to download the Nix daemon and to generate the
build system infrastructure using autoconf. It reports an error if an
inappropriate version of the above packages is being used.
* Installing Guix from Guix
You can re-build and re-install Guix using a system that already runs Guix.
To do so:
- install the dependencies (see 'Requirements' above) using Guix
- Install the dependencies (see 'Requirements' above) and build tools using
Guix. You should have the following packages installed in your user
profile:
- autoconf
- automake
- bzip2
- gcc
- gettext
- glibc
- guile
- ld-wrapper
- libgcrypt
- pkg-config
- sqlite
- set the environment variables that Guix recommends you to set during the
package installation process:
ACLOCAL, CPATH, LIBRARY_PATH, PATH, PKG_CONFIG_PATH
In addition, set
GUIX_LD_WRAPPER_ALLOW_IMPURITIES=yes
- re-run the configure script passing it the option
`--with-libgcrypt-prefix=$HOME/.guix-profile/'
- run "make" and "make install"
