2 Installation

GNU Guix is available for download from its website at This section describes the software requirements of Guix, as well as how to install it and get ready to use it.

Note that this section is concerned with the installation of the package manager, which can be done on top of a running GNU/Linux system. If, instead, you want to install the complete GNU operating system, see System Installation.

The build procedure for Guix is the same as for other GNU software, and is not covered here. Please see the files README and INSTALL in the Guix source tree for additional details.
