<paroneayea>one perosn there was telling me about OStree from GNOME and how it shares some "similar properties"... it does look interesting, but this line right here is a red flag:
<mark_weaver>yeah, "alpha" isn't quite the right word to describe Guix, IMO.
<paroneayea>> Finally, each deployment has its own writable copy of the configuration store /etc. On upgrade, OSTree will perform a basic 3-way diff, and apply any local changes to the new copy, while leaving the old untouched.
<karhunguixi>I'm a bit stuck trying to make my own package. I've borrowed the recipe for the "hello" package from the manual and substituted hello with something else. I've added the directory with this file to GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH
<karhunguixi>Should i now be able to build it, or am i doing things wrong? Running "guix build myfile.scm" says "failed to load", "no code for module" and "unknown package"
<davexunit>karhunguixi: you ask guix to build a package given a name, not a file
<davexunit>if your package is named 'foo', and your scheme code is valid, and GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH is setup properly, then 'guix build foo' will build it for you
