Guix - functional package manager, environments and hosts


Something will go here

Public Channels

  • Nonguix channel
    The most well-known alternative channel. It has packages that cannot go into Guix as they are not fully Free Software compliant. Good examples are packages like Chromium. There is also a substitutes server - highly recommended.
  • Guix gaming channel
    Associated with nonguix, this is for gaming.
  • Where is everyone

Guix Resources

  • Guix: transactional package manager and Linux distribution
    Main Web site, the instructional videos are quick and worth watching.
  • Guix manual
    The Guix manual provides detailed instructions on all aspects of Guix. Reading this is practically a test for whether someone will enjoy Guix: if the detail and formal structure speaks to you then you'll enjoy Guix - if it feels like too much then it's probably better to look at something else in my opinion.
  • Bootstrappable Builds
    Many of the developers who focus on Linux distributions, and those that work on Guix in particular are interested in reproducibility and consequently the Bootstrap problem. This is a small site talking about the problem and the current state of play.
