<davexunit>in which module would you folks put a package for 'libical'?
<davexunit>it's a library for dealing with the iCal calendar format
<rekado->I'm very happy with my GuixSD audio workstation running on a Thinkpad T60. It all just works.
<rekado->I have a lot of collisions relating to "share/icons/hicolor/icon-theme.cache" -- is this something we can delete from package outputs?
<rekado->packages installing this file are calf, ibus, emacs, inkscape, exo, libxfce4ui, thunar, ... and a couple more.
<taylanub>hmm, I copy mesa's $mesa/include/GL directory to /tmp/xyz/GL and add /tmp/xyz to the front of CPATH, but e.g. "#include <GL/glext.h>" still uses $mesa/include/GL/glext.h and not /tmp/xyz/GL/glext.h
<taylanub>am I missing something? otherwise I guess Qt's build system must be doing something undesirable.
<joolean>Having some trouble doing a pre-inst-env guix build. coreutils bails out of configure if guix-daemon runs the build as root, and if I add --build-users-group, weird stuff happens - I get logged out of my current GNOME desktop session, e.g.
<cehteh>well, its a bit of a double edged sword .. of course its not the point to host one, but letting the FSF decide which software i can run would take away some freedom of me as well, so some 'mention' .. not as stong as promotion would be okish imo
<paroneayea>cehteh: but the fsf isn't deciding what software you can run
<paroneayea><davexunit> use/abuse GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH as you wish
<davexunit>well, the thing is that guix is decentralized in theory
<cehteh>wow .. computer which running the kvm crashed
<davexunit>so rather than a 'cache', people would just run their own 'guix publish' servers
<cehteh>as long its only theory one could build some redneck decentraliization
<cehteh>and i have to get a guix system working here at first
<davexunit>it wouldn't work the way you are expecting it to
<davexunit>you could run guix on one machine, build your OS config with 'guix system build config.scm', which would download *everything* needed for that system. then, from the installation image, you could authorize that guix machine as the one to server binaries.
