Have you been able to confirm this?

I just wanted to do this on darnassus, but guix-daemon is not running
there, and I cannot seem to get it to build software as a user, because
obviously I cannot write to /gnu/store.

Could you give me a hint how to run guix on Darnassus?

This to me suggests a bug in how grafts are applied in a
cross-compilation context: we shouldn=E2=80=99t be trying to cross-compile
=E2=80=98make-boot0=E2=80=99 in the first place.  I=E2=80=99m pretty sure p=
assing --no-grafts
avoids the problem (but remember it disables some of the security
updates!).  Can you confirm?

(This was reported before, but apparently not on bug-guix.)

That can be useful too.

Thanks for the report,

Hello everyone,

In current master (72e2815d18ad688b0a16ce3b3efba1172423cec4)
cross-compilation doesn't work.
Running `guix build --target=i586-pc-gnu -c8 bootstrap-tarballs' or
running `guix build --target=i686-linux-gnu -c8 bootstrap-tarballs'
fail with

phase `set-paths' succeeded after 0.0 seconds
starting phase `install-locale'
warning: failed to install 'en_US.utf8' locale: Invalid argument
phase `install-locale' succeeded after 0.0 seconds
starting phase `unpack'
In execvp of tar: No such file or directory
phase `unpack' failed after 0.0 seconds

http://paste.lisp.org/display/354383

The problem appeared both in master and core-updates before today's
merge. I think the last time I checked if cross-compilation works, must
have been in early July. I am looking for the last working commit.

Manolis
