*davexunit wishes he had time to demo guix to folks at LP
<mark_weaver>I'm really surprised that guix master still has no provision to clean up /tmp and /var/run. the number of times I had to manually clean everything up and either restart a bunch of deamons or reboot was too high for me.
<mark_weaver>but I guess it's not bothering too many users, or else we'd hear more complaints
<Sleep_Walker>I really don't feel like distribution architect written in some crazy language (like scheme :)
<mark_weaver>I think it's a bad idea to just delete pid files before trying to start a daemon. what is the daemon is actually running? there's a reason why daemons refuse to start when there's a pid file around.
