I am having trouble installing guix on nixos. I have specified the build users and the guix daemon isystemd service in my configuration.nix file and all works.
I am then following the binary installation instructions. As root I then try to test by running
guix package -i hello
However rather than install the small hello package, guix is installing a large number of dependencies such as gcc etc. It is taking a long time. IS this normal ?
I am also having trouble setting up the environme for running guix as non-root user.
