Hi Ludo,

> If you run this on an =E2=80=9Cold=E2=80=9D GuixSD, =E2=80=98find-long-op=
tions=E2=80=99 is undefined.

How can it be that (gnu services base) with find-long-options call is prese=
nt
but the (gnu build linux-boot)'s find-long options isn't present?

Aren't they either both added by "guix system reconfigure" (or both removed=
)?

Also when selecting an old generation in the Grub boot menu, isn't both
(gnu build linux-boot) and (gnu services base) at the same generation when
starting up the service (as opposed to stopping the old service)?

Yes please.

The idea was that if you specify a serial console at boot that you can
actually log in at that console.

So it's trying to find out whether, at the time of service start,
there is a serial console specified (in the Linux command line), and if
so, start an agetty.  Otherwise do not start that agetty.

We could also do that without a guix service - but I thought it would be
nice to have a guix service for it as well.

/gnu/st?") ?).
> guix system: error: exception caught while executing 'eval' on service 'r=

The problem we have here is that the agetty service expects
=E2=80=98find-long-options=E2=80=99 from linux-boot.scm, and it expects it =
at the top
level.

So what happens above is that we evaluate in PID=C2=A01 code like:

  (make <service>
    ;; =E2=80=A6
    #:start (let ((tty =E2=80=A6 (find-long-options =E2=80=A6) =E2=80=A6))
               =E2=80=A6))

If you run this on an =E2=80=9Cold=E2=80=9D GuixSD, =E2=80=98find-long-opti=
ons=E2=80=99 is undefined.

Thus the whole (register-services =E2=80=A6) expression fails to evaluate, =
and
we end up with some of the services missing.

Conclusions:

  1. =E2=80=98guix system reconfigure=E2=80=99 should probably register ser=
vices one by
     one so that if one of the service expressions is erroneous, we
     don=E2=80=99t bork everything.  See =E2=80=98upgrade-shepherd-services=
=E2=80=99.

  2. IWBN to delay execution of this whole default-tty thing to the
     #:start method.  Ideas, Danny?

In general we should do as little as possible at the top level in the
Shepherd config file.

Ludo=E2=80=99.

Ah, thanks for the information! A reboot made things worse in my case -
I rebooted the virtual machine, and now I cannot ssh into it any more.
So it looks like I will have to set it up from scratch again...

In my case, the problem occurred between February 28 and March 4.

I had the same error when updating my i686 netbook after a long while.
After a reboot everything seemed to be fine, though.

Well, I am turning this into a bug report, since it still occurs with
the latest git commit ac1a9ce8b07f3b80900ee08436ff6e683e8dc195 .

This is the result of "./pre-inst-env guix system reconfigure ...",
where "..." is my configuration file:

...
creating nginx log directory '/var/log/nginx'
creating nginx run directory '/var/run/nginx'
creating nginx temp directories '/var/run/nginx/{client_body,proxy,fastcgi,uwsgi,scgi}_temp'
nginx: [alert] could not open error log file: open() "/gnu/store/pp71iff1qxwhh82vm34g18h9kmn0xrg5-nginx-1.13.9/logs/error.log" failed (2: No such file or directory)

guix system: error: failed to install bootloader /gnu/store/9iv63jm07klxvrr4fpwv6q5vpnca13ja-bootloader-installer

The final error is "normal", since I am installing in a Xen virtual machine,
where /dev/sda does not exist; it did not matter before.
The real error occurs above, the "uncaught exception".

But:
# herd status nginx
herd: service 'nginx' could not be found

Then I do a
# ./pre-inst-env guix system roll-back
# herd status nginx
herd: service 'nginx' could not be found

Otherwise said, I can go back, but my previously running web server has
definitely gone! How do I get it back?

Andreas
