<pxc>is there a better way to compile and install Guix on Nix? It needs to be compiled against Nix because it needs to be pointed to the nix store so that it shares derivations
<bavier>pxc: it looks like the guix recipe doesn't include guile-json as an input
<roelj>I'm having some trouble with Git from Guix. When cloning a repository, I get: fatal: unable to access '...': server certificate verification failed. CAfile: none CRLfile: none. Am I missing a package?
<pxc>ah, cool! I saw it was json-related but I wasn't sure if that was it. I'm not fluent in Scheme at all
<bavier>pxc: IIRC the 0.9.0 release had a bug that wouldn't do proper detection of guile-json's presence

<jjmarin>davexunit: I think xdg-apps seems to be a more promising took for containered desktop applications than portable linux apps. They are working in a sandboxing model to protect your system from containered apps
<jjmarin>xdg-apps allows several new things, my favorites: 1) people can use and test new upstream versions in their distro of choice 2)people can use applications that are not packaged for their distro
<rekado>do you know if someone is working on this? It bugs me enough to help out there.
<rekado>is it by design that the arguments to shepherd's "make-system-constructor" are concatenated without spaces whereas the arguments to "make-forkexec-constructor" are joined with spaces?

<a_e>civodul: It does have the label! That is the strange thing.
<a_e>I see the label when I plug in the USB stick and look at /dev/disk/by-label
<rekado>I can confirm that adding "export GTK_DATA_PREFIX=/run/current-system/profile" at the top of my ~/.xsession file makes Xfce pretty. How can we set GTK_DATA_PREFIX by default?
<mark_weaver>rekado: the problem is, what would we set it to? if we set it to /run/current-system/profile, then it won't find xfce in the user profile, and if you set it to $HOME/.guix-profile then it won't find xfce in the system profile.
<mark_weaver>IMO, we need to patch whatever code uses that variable to accept something PATH-like
