Hello,

If I download the latest installer and use it to install a new system,
the "guix system init" command will install the guix package defined in
the (gnu packages package-management) module.

That means that if the installer is built with a guix package at the
version N in that module, the guix installed by the installer will be at
version N-1.

Besides the fact it is quite disturbing there are at least two major
issues:

* If the guix package is broken, it needs to build updated twice. I
  recently added a comment about that:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;; If you are updating this package because it fails to build, you need to
;; actually update it *twice*, as the installer is pointing to the N-1 guix
;; package revision.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

* When the guix package is updated twice in two separate but near
  commits, Cuirass that is checkouting Guix every 5 minutes might miss
  the intermediate version of the guix package. Hence, the installation
  is taking a while because the guix package is expensive to build.

Any idea on how to improve this inception problem?

Thanks,

Mathieu

Hi!

Mathieu Othacehe <othacehe@HIDDEN> skribis:

> Any idea on how to improve this inception problem?

We can arrange for =E2=80=98installation-os=E2=80=99 to use Guix from the c=
urrent
commit, as built by (guix self), instead of using the =E2=80=98guix=E2=80=
=99 package.
(For the record, (gnu ci) already does that in =E2=80=98system-test-jobs=E2=
=80=99 to
make installation tests faster.)

I=E2=80=99ll take a look hopefully in the coming days and send a patch here.

Thanks,
Ludo=E2=80=99.
