<rekado>The discussion on gnu-system-discuss is bizarre. Just sayin'.
<taylanub>I think it's rather unsurprising that RMS doesn't accept "GNU System Distribution", given his previous reasonings
<taylanub>that being said, has anyone pointed out to RMS that GuixDistro probably deserves a *little* more attention than other GNU/Linux-libre distributions, because they're all tied to the upstream of some other, non-GNU-friendly distro?
<rekado_>the way I see it, bringing up this whole name thing on gnu-system-discuss is a courtesy. Since rms has expressed that he is not happy with calling GSD "The GNU System" (or anything similarly strong) and we have given up on giving it a controversial name, I don't think that this discussion even belongs on gnu-system-discuss anymore.
<jgrant>davexunit: In an ideal world I'd like to see the Free Software world unite under developing one distro primarily ... but not only is that not going to happen, I don't want other free software distros to go away in such a system. I do find overfragmentation problematic though. :^P
<DusXMT>_root_: ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/guix/ , there's gnu-usb-install images. But before you dive into those, it'd be a better idea to first try installing it on top of your distro, so you can learn how to use it before diving into a whole system of it
<_root_>how is it? how manay packages do you provide?
<DusXMT>_root_: well then, that's the image, to install it, once it boots up, switch to VT2 (ALT+F2) for installation instructions
<_root_>davexunit: I am a moderate user; a wmfs and urxvt and nvidia would do
<davexunit>for nvidia gpus, you will use the nouveau drivers on guix
<davexunit>nvidia's official drivers are non-free, so we do not include them.
<DusXMT>One thing that's kind-of outdated in the instructions is the `setting up networking', it assumes the interface is called ethX, while the system is set up to use unique interface names, so type `ifconfig -a' to get yours
<_root_>davexunit: oh; that's problematic esp for kernel >>3.17
