<ngz>Hello. I did a guix pull recently. I'm not sure it is related, but now, when I call "guix edit ..." I get an error telling me that "execlp" is nowhere to be found. Any idea about what is going wrong?
<ngz>Another (different) issue: I'm running "guix package -u" but the update process runs out of disk space when trying to compile icecat. I allow substitutes and, according to hydra, icecat on x86_64 is not failing. So, why don't I get the substitute instead of having to compile it?
<mark_weaver>hydra is currently building icecat for x86_64. it hasn't caught up yet.
<mark_weaver>whenever a change to the guix source repository that would require things to be recompiled, there is always a window when you must compile things yourself.
<ngz>OK. Thank you. I missed the information about icecat not being built already. OOC, where is this information available in hydra's UI?
<davexunit>rekado_: I won't have time to properly test this for a little while
<davexunit>I suspect there are some problems with it, but it's a very good start.
<jogo_>Hey, it is some time ago that I used GNU/Linux distro being forced by my workplace to use OSX. But I want to use another os again and try to install GuixSD on my macbook but have a problem setting up grub.
<jogo_>I tried installing it pointing to /dev/sda but that will complain about efi.
<jogo_>The guix partition as target will result in a message about embedding not supported.
<jogo_>Can maybe anybody point me in the right direction?
<davexunit>jogo_: I'm not sure what our story is right now related to EFI.
<davexunit>if no one answers you here, you should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org about it.
<davexunit>that's our mailing list, and people that aren't logged into IRC right now will see it.
<jogo_>Another problem is that the internal keyboard is not working. lsusb will show it though.
<jogo_>Thanks for the pointer to the list, I will write a mail to it.
<davexunit>perhaps we're not loading the correct kernel module for your keyboard
<davexunit>for that you could write to email@example.com with the relevant details: version of guix install image, lsusb output, whatever else you can think of.
<amz3>(I can't reproduce right my bug with flake8 but I will come back to it later or send a patch if I succeed)
<civodul>davexunit: i think it's ok to quote the arguments
<civodul>plus system* would have different semantics; you wouldn't be able to do -E "cd foo; bar", for instance
<ngz>Something weird is going on. When I try to update packages some of them are downloaded (e.g., solfege) but others are compiled (e.g., icecat). I guess my authorizations are fine since I get derivations from the former category. However, I do not understand why many packages fall into the second one.
<amz3>read the output, I think it's written that hydra (the build server) is failing
<ngz>Actually there are not "many" packages in the latter category. But icecat definitely is, and I cannot compile it due to lack of disk space anyway.
