Hi Jason,

Thanks for the patch!

I believe there are two issues here:

This is not a valid nix-base32 string.  It should be shorter, like

The ‘guix-download’ tool should give you the right thing.

Since it depends on Parted, there should be an ‘inputs’ field like:

  (inputs `((parted ,parted)))

However, Parted is not packaged yet, so that’d be the place to start.  I
think Nikita was looking into it, maybe?

BTW, the manual briefly mentions ‘guix-import’; it’s really very helpful
as a starting point for simple packages.
