Guix at the 2014 GNU Hackers Meeting

Item posted by Ludovic Courtès <civodul> on Sat 11 Oct 2014 09:56:51 AM UTC.

The Guix talk of this summer's GNU Hackers Meeting is now available on-line.

It gives an introduction to Guix from a user's viewpoint, and covers topics such as features for GNU maintainers, programming interfaces, declarative operating system configuration, status of the GNU/Hurd port, and the new Emacs and Web interfaces---with a bunch of demos.

Do not miss other fine talks from the GHM. Many thanks to everyone who took care of the video recordings.

About GNU Guix

GNU Guix is the functional package manager for the GNU system, and a distribution thereof.

In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, per-user profiles, and garbage collection. It also offers a declarative approach to operating system configuration management. Guix uses low-level mechanisms from the Nix package manager, with Guile Scheme programming interfaces.

At this stage the distribution can be used on an i686 or x86_64 machine. It is also possible to use Guix on top of an already installed GNU/Linux system, including on mips64el.
