if i have guix installer on one partition and boot, it can't install the OS on the same partition right (ie boot itself into ram)?
gry: Not that I am aware.
icepick is a build harness to allow Java tools from OpenJDK (like the javac compiler) to be built with GCJ. The tarball for icepick does not contain the OpenJDK sources, however.
How do I specify a recipe such that more than one tarball is downloaded?
Do I need to add another build phase that takes care of the download?
I need to package icepick in order to get a compiler that can build Ant, which I need to build IcedTea to build OpenJDK.
Ant cannot be built with GCJ+ECJ, so I need javac from OpenJDK.
Just curious, what do you think about that the Hurd's bootstrap might become a scheme-based one?
DusXMT: I just read the email a few minutes ago and I think it's a lovely idea.
rekado: you can pass an 'origin' form as an 'input'.
if it's a tarball, then (assoc-ref inputs "foo") will be the pathname of the tarball.
'tzdata' in base.scm is an example of a package that does this.
