<youlysses>jxself: Nope, just got home from eating -- there's some family weekend thing at the college down here and they were visiting my sister and asked if I wanted to eat. Now we're taking a short break, and probably meeting backup in said 2 or-so hours. I'm doubtful that there is a link already to download... :^U
<mark_weaver>indeed, we will have to take up that challenge. I guess Novena will be a good start, if the GPU can be reverse engineered (I don't remember those details though), and longer-term MilkyMist is quite promising.
<davi>It is said creating a guix package is very easy
<youlysses>roelj: To what I'm aware, Dejavu isn't packaged for Guix yet (I have interest in doing this), though vera (at least iirc) is what dejavu is based off -- so it should be aesthetically fairly similar.
<davi>ttf-dejavu - Metapackage to pull in ttf-dejavu-core and ttf-dejavu-extra
<davi>ttf-dejavu-core - Vera font family derivate with additional characters
<davi>ttf-dejavu-extra - Vera font family derivate with additional characters
<roelj>Just out of curiosity, why can't it find the fonts installed in /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ ?
<davi>Maybe because Guix uses a different file-system organisation than Debian?
<youlysses>roelj: I'm by no-means an expert, but I'd assume because Guix distro is more-or-less self-contained. You could probably set load-paths to get everything working but I don't have the brain power, before I pass out -- to figure that out right now, sorry... :^P
<youlysses>davi: roelj: Assuming I have the free-time later and I can figure out what the problem I'm having building/installing cmake is -- I'll hopefully have the SLiM login-manager up and going, so at the very least -- it'll be easy to test xorg via the bootable qemu-image, in the relatively short-term. :^)
<youlysses>Okay -- well I'm going to try taking that nap again, I'll be back some-point later today, but I need to check over and submit a paper first, beforehand. :^)
<mark_weaver>I'm sitting here with davexunit, working on enhancing the Guile REPL to support a read hook, that would among other things allow the reading to be done in another thread (so that the REPL can essentially be run as a coroutine in the main thread of a event-driven program)
<youlysses>civodul: Sorry, I've been a lot more busy this weekend than I expected -- I do want to at least get gl.scm up (git patch-format doesn't seem to export anything (do I need a flag of any-sort)) and probably still slim.scm, though I'm still having the same issue on 0.4 on my native box -- though maybe I just need to try via the vm. :^)
<civodul>i don't know what problem you have with 0.4, but we can sort it out when you have time
<youlysses>That being said, I need, to get kbd working -- which seems to be problematic for some reason. :^/ It's not even getting to the inputs stage -- it's stalling at the patch-phase, saying "find-files: ./docs/doc/utf/??????: No such file or directory". :^U
<Steap>youlysses: in order to export your latest commit, you need to use git format-patch -1
<civodul>FYI our Git package now has two outputs in addition to the default one: "gui" (for gitk & co.), and "svn" (for git-svn)
<jxself>civodul: Of course it's on the front page ;)
<youlysses>Okay -- sorry my mom visited and said goodbye (visited for "parents weekend"), patch generated and finally I'm about to officially submit it to the mailing list. :^)
<habstinat>New to guix, but I managed to compile and install it on my gNewSense system. In my foolishness though, when installing emacs I did "sudo guix package -i emacs", thus installing it only for the root user. I have two questions: 1) is it possible to install packages in the "normal" paths like /usr/bin/ instead of in a sandboxed way? and 2) can I just "move over" my /root/.guix-profile to my
<habstinat>$USER_HOME/.guix-profile to get the package working as my regular user without reinstallation?
*Steap is finally done with gobject-introspection :)
<mark_weaver>habstinat: no, you can't just move it over. just re-run "guix package -i emacs" as your normal user.
