<Phlogistique>do you know if people are using Guix without GuixSD to install X server + graphical environments? (e.g. XFCE, if you have that in Guix)
<rekado_>Is there a nicer interface to hydra (e.g an Emacs mode) and/or a way to restrict the list of failing builds to only one architecture and only to direct failures (not propagated failures from dependencies)?
<rekado_>Phlogistique: on the cluster I installed graphical tools (e.g. Thunar) for a user, but not all of XFCE.
<rekado_>Phlogistique: on my main laptop I use Guix on top of Fedora but still use the GNOME shell; I have installed XFCE there, but haven't had the time to actually try it yet.
<civodul>could you just file the backtrace/error that you get with whatever details are relevant?
<civodul>and regarding speed, it would be nice to check that
<bavier>I've noticed the speed difference with wget as well
<civodul>long ago there was this kind of problem because Guile was setting an wrongfully small input buffer on the socket
<civodul>bavier: could you report it, stating the Guile version, Guix commit, etc.?
<taylanub>when some sources are patched, guix downloads the patched version from hydra (as a substitute) instead of downloading the raw sources and patching them locally, right? so maybe it downloads slower than with-wget/from-upstream because hydra is slower
