<gazoombo>hi, I'm going to have to duck out shortly, but I thought I'd pose this question first: can guix be successfully bootstrapted from Debian Wheezy (stable) without additional experimental packages?
<gazoombo>right now I'm getting this when running ./bootstrap from git HEAD: ...
<gazoombo>configure.ac:9: require Automake 1.12, but have 1.11.6
<gazoombo>autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1
<mark_weaver>if you build from the 0.3 tarball, you don't need automake
<mark_weaver>yes, you should be able to build the tarball on wheezy without any experimental packages.
<mark_weaver>alternatively, you can install automake from experimental.
<mark_weaver>(which I did on my wheezy system, and it's very unobtrusive)
<mark_weaver>civodul: I watched your presentation on Guix. Am I right in assuming that your queries about 'syntax-session-id' are about trying to ensure that builds are always bit-for-bit identical, as opposed to "almost" identical?
<mark_weaver>I've been thinking it over some more, and when compiling normal guile modules, it should be sufficient to use a 'syntax-session-id' that's derived from the module name.
<mark_weaver>where it gets trickier is when something's being compiled that not a normal module.
<civodul>mark_weaver: yes, that's the "fixed point project"
