<jmd>mark_weaver: I don't see any build instructions on either page.
<jmd>Oh wait. Two lines: "he build procedure for Guix is the same as for other GNU software, and is not covered here. Please see the files README and INSTALL in the Guix source tree for additional details. "
<jmd>Hmm. make check took over 10 minutes, but make installcheck tool less than 3 seconds.
<mark_weaver>yes, I guess that should be fixed. would you like to file a bug report? <firstname.lastname@example.org>
<mark_weaver>"(automake) Basic Installation" says: Presently most packages do not have any 'installcheck' tests because the existence of 'installcheck' is little known, and its usefulness is neglected. Our little toy package is no better: 'make installcheck' does nothing.
<gzg`>I just recently moved from rsync to unison, which keeps my files in-sync on both machines, but every to weeks, I plan on rsyning to a 3rd-party drive.
<jmd>mark_weaver: That's one option I have been experimenting with.
<mark_weaver>well, like I said before, /nix can always be a bind mount.
<mark_weaver>it's also possible to build a guix where things will be put somewhere other than /nix/store, but if you do that you won't be able to download any binary substitutes from hydra.gnu.org. instead, you'd have to bootstrap the system from source code only.
<mark_weaver>well, to be more clear: bootstrapping from source code only is fine, and in fact I do it myself exclusively. however, I don't recommending changing the prefix from /nix/store to something else, especially if you're just starting out.
