<gzg>Also, fyi to anyone around to hear and pass around to answer if someone is questioning (or checking the backlog), starting tomorrow -- I'll likely be MIA for a solid week. Have to go back t my parents and get some stuff I've been worried about, done. After that though, I should actually be proactive and productive with patches... ! :^)
<gzg>Infiltrator: That'd be really nice to have such a low-barrier entry field, which in-turn carries all the land Debian entails, where one could more-or-less "naturally" segway into using the Upstream GNU disro.
<mark_weaver>On my home-grown YeeLoong system, 'git' isn't able to run Guix's ./bootstrap script. I get an SSL error, apparently because the CA that signed the certificate is not in my trusted CA certificate store.
<mark_weaver>now I have a 'git' that was built by Guix itself, and I tried using that one. it still doesn't work.
<mark_weaver>can someone let me know how this is supposed to work on Guix (or Nix)?
<a_e>mark_weaver: I have no answers to your questions, I just discovered these openssl details when trying to make smtp work over ssl.
<mark_weaver>okay, thanks anyway for telling me what you found. it's a start.
<a_e>mark_weaver: Did you see my question on guix-devel concerning simd instructions for qt? The same question poses itself for ffmpeg.
<mark_weaver>yes, I did. what I know is this: both sse and sse2 are both definitely included in all x86_64 processors. I'm not sure about the other two, but I think they are unimportant anyway if you have sse and sse2.
