genecup is currently running as root on penguin2.

Currently when run using shepherd it fails like this:

guix system: warning: Consider running 'guix pull' followed by 'guix system reconfigure' to get up-to-date packages and security updates.

guile: warning: failed to install locale Backtrace: 6 (primitive-load "/gnu/store/gkksaranscqwyzixgm4fk83by1n?")

A number of changes to different types of shepherd services (exec-command, make-system-constructor) still failed to actually run the container when started with `herd start genecup`. Ratspub is run from a `guix environment` rather than `guix system container` so we'll switch to that so we can go back to running all the services using shepherd.


  • assigned: Efraim
  • type: failure
  • keywords: genecup, penguin2
  • status: unclear
  • priority: high


  • It is unclear if the environmental-variables in the shepherd service are carried over to the shell script, but it seems not
  • Had to run 'guix pull' to update the guix tree for genecup, since the guix-bioinformatics repository had made breaking changes since the last time.
