Guix Installation ISO

This is a basic installation image, but substitute server is changed to mirror.

Built using this simple operating-system record definition and my local guix checkout.

To build a similiar image yourself, add rde channel and do:

guix system image -t iso9660 \
-e '(@ (rde system install) guix-with-substitute-mirror)'

If you use graphical installer and network check fails, ctrl-alt-f3:

touch /tmp/installer-assume-online

Guix Mirror

If * is blocked for your network by any reason1, you can use a reverse proxy, which mirrors various guix services. Please don't use it if the upstream services is available for you.

All services are available in clearnet and yggdrasil. All services are exposed by HTTP only, if you want to have the traffic to be end to end encrypted use yggdrasil. The instruction about yggdrasil setup should appear here in some future.

site,, clearnet ip, yggdrasil ip.
substitutes,, the protocol is http!

It's also possible to obtain substitutes via Tor, directly from host and there is another mirror2.
