<davexunit>hmm, looks like we never changed our git-download method to use shallow clones
<efraim>to build an out-of-tree package i do ./pre-inst-env guix package -f file.scm ?
<paroneayea>davexunit: sorry, I wanted to work on deployment in guix stuff this week and promised that while in boston, but basically the federation work we're doing is being pseudo-threatened... I have to hack up some stuff to push the standards forward
<davexunit>paroneayea: no pressure from me. take care of urgent work. :)
<alezost>efraim: perhaps you just want to add that file to GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH and build in a usual manner
<davexunit>1) you aren't using this file as a module, so remove the module stuff and import modules you need with 'use-modules'
<efraim>my plan B was to just have a branch with my own packages insterted
<davexunit>2) the last expression isn't a package expression, it's a variable definition expression, whose return value is unspecified
<ngz>Hmm I can't compile csound after guix pull && guix package -u. I get "ld: CMakeFiles/csound-bin.dir/csound/csound_main.c.o: undefined reference to symbol '_ZGVcN4vv_pow@@GLIBC_2.22'". Any idea about what is wrong?
<efraim>i think the problem is csound. It hasn't compiled correctly since at least september 26th
<codemac>yeah, usually it's not what you expect. Not to mention load values in general spike up during I/O load along with compilation load merely because it makes scheduling queues longer as they wait for r/w's to come back
<codemac>it doesn't actually mean your cpu is backed up.
