<jgrant>jcca: Is groff a dependency of the base install or something you or someone else added to the config? You can just comment that out for now in use modules and the like if y'all added it. :^P
<mark_weaver>jcca: it seems that we'll have to update the source URL for that package.
<mark_weaver>in the meantime, if you can find a copy of that tarball elsewhere and download it, then give it the precise name "netpbm-10.61.01.tar.xz" and run: guix download file://home/jcca/netpbm-10.61.01.tar.xz
<mark_weaver>people who enable binary substitutes from hydra.gnu.org will also get the source code from there as well. so, another option: you could temporarily enable substitutes just to get that one file.
<jcca>mark_weaver: I see, so the URL is broken... ok but I don't have netpbm-10.61.01.tar.xz
*jgrant has a strong distaste for the name "Guixotic", but is kinda done arguing for or against names. Maybe once 1.0 comes out and/or things like a graphical installer and GNOME are a go.
<jgrant>For now, it's really just a code name more than anything to separate the entity that is the package manager from the actual Distro generated thereof.
<rekado>iyzsong: well, it looked like we had finally found something we all were happy with (I particularly liked your suggestion of keeping "Guixotic" as the release code name). It also seemed like the second-best name, given that we can't just call it "GNU".
<jgrant>rekado: Did it stand for "Gnu System Distribution"?
<jgrant>Namely, it doesn't give such a system any preference to / over other Free-Software distros. :^P
<jgrant>Might be worth sending RMS said link again, to get his feelings on such things though.
<civodul>sure, but i'm tired of his behavior right now
<jgrant>civodul: I mean, yeah it's frustrating. I get his logic, but the main thing is -- is to get Guixotic or whatever popular enough in the Free-Software distro community that Trisquel, Parabola, and gNewSense start willingly cannibalizing themselves I think.
