I am afraid that the installation steps described in the doc is still far from complete.
There are many per-system configuration that might affect the installation of Guix.
Default sudo file on Fedora preserves the USERNAME env which will lead Guix to
link login user's profile even if Guix running as root (via sudo).
Guix is not welcomed by SeLinux, on enabled system, you need to configure or
disable SeLinux in order to run the guix-daemon properly. Configuring SeLinux
takes patient while disabling it takes guts.
I have written a script for basic installation but didn't share it with anyone due to
the fact that things can vary in a quite dramatic way and I simply don't have enough
