<amz3>at work, we use a debian repository for our softwares, it makes things really complex to understand how all things work together also we rely sysvinit. Then end result is that a single developper can't build the complete solution without relying on build bot
<amz3>and build bot doesn't do all-the-thing since after building you still need to setup a vm or whatever lightweight container to run it
<lfam>Any advice on using `guix system vm-image`? Should I adapt the script I get from `guix system vm` to work with the output of `guix system vm-image`?
<lfam>Also, is it possible to "feed" entropy to qemu? That would make it easier to use `guix system vm`, since right now, you have to bash the keyboard to provide entropy for the vm, making it not that useful for spawning systems on demand.
<rekado>lfam: there is the rng-tools service which can be used to generate more entropy
<lfam>rekado: I'd need to bring that to Guix, right?
<rekado>I should note that I haven't tried this before, but someone else claims that it works:
<lfam>I got the vm-image to boot. Now I have to figure out how to get it network access
<taylan>by the way, I noticed some weirdness with guix/download.scm... when I build with my patch, then switch back to master and run make again, guix/download.go gets recompiled even though the .scm didn't change.
