1 Guix pill 3: enter the environment

1.1 3.1. enter the environment

Assuming that the installation instructions were correctly executed You should now be able to run the `guix` command.

Nix-related note (you can ignore this if you are not already familar with Nix): a Nix installation under foreign distro includes 13 command line utilities starting with 'nix', which are under the path ~/.nix-profile/bin. A Guix install under a foreign distro only includes one binay that is invoked from the command line, at /usr/local/bin/guix.

1.2 install something

guix install hello

you can now invoke hello from ~/.guix-profile/bin/hello

Things to notice:

  • we installed software as a regular user, no `sudo` required
  • TODO: was a new Guix profile generation created?? I think so but it would be good to put some supporting information
  • we are using the `guix` command line tool (if you like Emacs there is also an Emacs interface to Guix)
