<marusich>If you you really need to do it in VirtualBox, then I imagine you could probably give it a whirl by downloading the GuixSD live USB image, and then booting up a fresh VM with that "plugged into" it.
<rekado->mark_weaver: re vamp: a new tarball for the given version was uploaded and the previous one was removed. The hash has changed.
<rekado->another data point: my colleage was unhappy when I told him there was no "guix install name" or "guix search name", so wingo is not the only one to think that this is something that's missing.
<rekado->I would not mind to have them as aliases to "guix package -i" and "guix package -s", but I don't have strongly held opinions either way.
<yenda>"So, the decision yesterday was that Trisquel 7 will ship with GNU IceCat and Abrowser will be retired but really it's the same browser with different branding. Goodbye, Abrowser - Long live Abrowser under its new name of GNU IceCat."
<mark_weaver>so they botched the release and then fixed it up without changing the name of the file
<DusXMT>funrep: At one point, it was called `The GNU Operating System'. However, since RMS didn't want us to discriminate against other fully-free distros, and since there could be some ambiguity and arguing about the meaning of GNU (what's a variant of GNU, if GNU is this system running guix?), we had to go for a different one. There were a bunch of suggestions, but RMS was against most of them. He suggested the nam
<DusXMT>e Guixotic, but a large number of Guix people didn't like it, and so the discussion continued. Then, Ludo came up with the idea of the `GNU System Distribution', or GSD for short. The majority of people here liked it; it was short, to the point, and even a bit punny. But RMS didn't approve, and so it eventually settled on the `Guix System Distribution', which can still be shortened to GSD, but RMS discourages
<mark_weaver>well, fwiw, in retrospect, I think GSD was a poor name choice. I'm glad not to think of BSD every time the name is used.
<mark_weaver>RMS is usually right about these things, and I think he was right this time also.
<mark_weaver>and I think it's not helpful to open old wounds and try to make RMS look bad to some new person who comes along and asks about the name GuixSD.
<DusXMT>I did not intend that, I just wanted to enlighten them about what happened, nothing more. I myself am a curious being, and like reading about things like these
<DusXMT>RMS is a wise person. Sometimes he's a bit strange, and sometimes it's hard with him, but one can't deny that he's wise and knows what he's talking about
<mark_weaver>I understand that it can be entertaining to hear about the dirty laundry or internal bickering of any group working for social change. but eagerly volunteering the information to someone who comes along and asks about the group is another matter.
