<safinaskar>i. e. it is responsible, but i forced to wait for it too much
<safinaskar>this is probably due to something like slashdot effect about guix
<davexunit>safinaskar: hydra is a bit starved for resources right now.
<safinaskar>and this affects installation process, because install program downloads from hydra.gnu.org
<davexunit>we're working on improving the build farm to handle the influx of new users and packages.
<davexunit>right now all we can say is: be patient and keep trying. in the worst case, you can disabled substitutes and build the entire distro yourself.
<safinaskar>install program gives me this error: http://paste.org.ru/?aub2p4 . will the install program re-download this files? or it will never re-download this files and so install process no way can finish successfully?
<davexunit>it will eventually work, but hydra really is under especially heavy load.
<safinaskar>i. e. i mean will the installer try to download the files again?
<DusXMT>civodul: There's one small issue with the patchset that happened by modifying the name, the URL to wv is now broken, the "name" variable should be wvware, but since it was changed to wv, it doesn't find it
<davexunit>jpt4: ah, you may find that guix won't boot, then.
<davexunit>you can still try and see how far you get and report the errors/try to fix them.
<jpt4>Roger, roger. The current experiment is to attempt to install GNU from this running Arch system via guix.
<jpt4>On a separate note, are there any examples of more complex system config derivations than the bare-bones example in the guix documentation?
<davexunit>you could look in the source tree for the defintions of the installation system and the demo-os for creating VM images
<davexunit>I don't remember their exact location and can't check right now
<DusXMT>jpt4: I think there's some information in the documentation (but I found it outdated, should file a bug against it since it doesn't work), but as davexunit said, exploring the source tree is the best way to learn more about it
<davexunit>'find . -name demo-os.scm' might reveal one of the files
<jxself>Most UEFI machines also have a BIOS compatibility mode. This may be useful if there are problems.
<jxself>It may need to be manually turned on though.
<safinaskar>i installed gnu. now i want to create another gnu in chroot. i don't want kernel nor grub in the chroot (but if they still be in chroot, this is acceptable). so, i typed the following command in my first gnu: "guix system init --no-substitutes --no-grub /a.scm /target" (/target exists). this is my a.scm: http://paste.org.ru/?4nwssi . the command failed: "guix system: error: failed to load
