Any problems with the installation should be reported to [email protected].
If you find a bug in Guile, please report it to the Guile developers, so they can fix it. They may also be able to suggest workarounds when it is not possible for you to apply the bug-fix or install a new version of Guile yourself.
Before sending in bug reports, please check with the following list that you really have found a bug.
Before reporting the bug, check whether any programs you have loaded
into Guile, including your .guile file, set any variables that
may affect the functioning of Guile. Also, see whether the problem
happens in a freshly started Guile without loading your .guile
file (start Guile with the
-q switch to prevent loading the init
file). If the problem does not occur then, you must report the
precise contents of any programs that you must load into Guile in order
to cause the problem to occur.
When you write a bug report, please make sure to include as much of the information described below in the report. If you can’t figure out some of the items, it is not a problem, but the more information we get, the more likely we can diagnose and fix the bug.
(version)from within Guile.
config.guessshell script. If you have a Guile checkout, this file is located in
build-aux; otherwise you can fetch the latest version from http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD.

dpkg -l | grep guile.
$ ./config.status --config '--enable-error-on-warning' '--disable-deprecated'...
If you have a Scheme program that produces the bug, please include it in the bug report. If your program is too big to include, please try to reduce your code to a minimal test case.
If you can reproduce your problem at the REPL, that is best. Give a transcript of the expressions you typed at the REPL.
If the manifestation of the bug is a Guile error message, it is
important to report the precise text of the error message, and a
backtrace showing how the Scheme program arrived at the error. This can
be done using the
,backtrace command in Guile’s debugger.
If your bug causes Guile to crash, additional information from a
low-level debugger such as GDB might be helpful. If you have built Guile
yourself, you can run Guile under GDB via the
meta/gdb-uninstalled-guile script. Instead of invoking Guile as
usual, invoke the wrapper script, type
run to start the process,
backtrace when the crash comes. Include that backtrace in
