<codemac>question - anyone here run guix beneath another OS?
<codemac>the bin vs. sbin thing is really annoying me with guix, but I can't put my finger on exactly why. I don't want to use the guix installed "reboot" command or whatever, but then bitlbee is in sbin as well so it needs to be in my path. I'd rather we unified them all into one directory.. but then that breaks my case where I don't want halt / reboot to be dmd commands but my normal systemd commands
<codemac>I just want to be able to run bitlbee without having `halt` in my path. I have installed dmd to use as a user, but this means I also have poweroff commands and whatnot in my user's .guix-profile
<codemac>Ideally, guix would just dump everything into a single path (since it's managing the symlinks anyways) and then I could just split up the dmd package or something locally to not include the halt / reboot scripts.
<codemac>I guess I could still split up the dmd script for now, but I'm curious what guix people think about getting rid of the difference between sbin and bin
<bavier1>I think we should have an additional 'develop-inputs' field for packages
<bavier1>so that e.g. `guix environment guix` actually provides the software required for building guix from a git checkout
<davexunit>bavier1: 'guix environment guix' already does this
<bavier1>currently one has to add all sorts of other packages manually: automake autoconf graphviz help2man
<davexunit>those are already inputs to the guix-devel package.
<bavier1>davexunit: ahh, I hadn't thought to 'guix environment guix-devel'
<davexunit>"Scheme-Propagators is a work in progress. Be aware that we will continue to hack it. Likewise, feel free to hack it as well -- let us know if you invent or implement something interesting. May the Source be with you."
