Thanks for trying!

If you followed steps 1 through 4, you will have created a symlink to root's
guix-profile in root's home directory.

Accordingly, you can start the daemon like this, as described in step 5:

# ~root/.guix-profile/bin/guix-daemon --build-users-group=guixbuild

Does that work?

If not, can you double-check that '~root/.guix-profile' exists and
points to the correct place? You should be able to do something like

# whoami
# ls -l ~/.guix-profile
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 45 Aug 14  2015 /root/.guix-profile -> 
# ls -l ~/.guix-profile/bin/guix-daemon 
lrwxrwxrwx 4 root guixbuild 78 Dec 31  1969 /root/.guix-profile/bin/guix-daemon 

By the way, since guix-daemon is a daemon, it will block and appear to
do nothing when you start it. Just mentioning this since some users have
been confused the daemon's behavior.
