|GUIX and Other crap||Anonymous|
GUIX started to screw with their kernel about 2 years ago. One of the tests I perform to see if the software is acceptable is to create independent installs. The first one creates a package that can be used by all linux kernel systems and the second is for Debian installs.
guix pack -S --relocatable /opt/gnu/bin=bin tor (this is tor server)
guix pack -f deb -C xz -S tor
In the first case: The package will extract corupted and in the second case will not install or create.
Some other affected software:
Onion Share (shout out to Mik/Meek former i2p developer)
Ungoogled Chromium (useful for i2p ./chromium --incognito --no-sandbox --proxy-server="http://127.0.0.1:4444" yeah you have some fingerprint to worry about but it is not the end of the world if you use other browsers too)
Some of these ungoogle-chromium work but most don't!
When I thought about reporting this crap I was very hot and ready to call savoir-linux (the main developer) names like: PD enqule, enbroileur, etc. My French is rusty so I gave up.
