How do you ensure that you obtained a genuine copy of the repository? To do
guix git authenticate, passing it the commit and OpenPGP
fingerprint of the channel introduction (see Invoking guix git authenticate):
git fetch origin keyring:keyring guix git authenticate 9edb3f66fd807b096b48283debdcddccfea34bad \ "BBB0 2DDF 2CEA F6A8 0D1D E643 A2A0 6DF2 A33A 54FA"
This command completes with exit code zero on success; it prints an error message and exits with a non-zero code otherwise.
As you can see, there is a chicken-and-egg problem: you first need to have Guix installed. Typically you would install Guix System (see 系统安装) or Guix on top of another distro (see 二进制文件安装); in either case, you would verify the OpenPGP signature on the installation medium. This “bootstraps” the trust chain.
guix environment guix --pure
See 调用guix environment, for more information on that command.
If you are unable to use Guix when building Guix from a checkout, the following are the required packages in addition to those mentioned in the installation instructions (see 需求).
On Guix, extra dependencies can be added by instead running
environment with --ad-hoc:
guix environment guix --pure --ad-hoc help2man git strace

./configure as usual. Make sure to pass
--localstatedir=directory where directory is the
localstatedir value used by your current installation (see 仓库, for information about this), usually /var. Note that you
will probably not run
make install at the end (you don’t have to)
but it’s still important to pass the right
Finally, you have to invoke
make && make check to build Guix and run
the tests (see 运行测试套件). If anything fails, take a look
at installation instructions (see 安装) or send a message to the
From there on, you can authenticate all the commits included in your checkout by running:
The first run takes a couple of minutes, but subsequent runs are faster.
Or, when your configuration for your local Git repository doesn’t match the
default one, you can provide the reference for the
through the variable
GUIX_GIT_KEYRING. The following example assumes
that you have a Git remote called ‘myremote’ pointing to the official
make authenticate GUIX_GIT_KEYRING=myremote/keyring
注: You are advised to run
make authenticateafter every
git pullinvocation. This ensures you keep receiving valid changes to the repository.
