<pmal>hi everyone. Maybe someone could help me. Just installed guixsd. I want to understand how sound is working by default here. amixer, pactl or pacmd are not valid commands to configure sound, as they probably are not instaled by default, but still i have sound, becouse i can watch videos with sound in icecat. So what sound server does GuixSD ussing by default and how could I configure it?
<bavier>pmal: our icecat uses alsa AFAICT; you might just need to install amixer to your profile
<pmal>so alsa can work without alsa mixer provided?
<lfam>Any MPC / ncmpcpp users on armhf want to try building ncmpcpp with my "Remove bootstrapping inputs" patch on the mailing list? I want to make sure it still works for you before making this change.
<mark_weaver>fold-packages loads all package modules, and many package modules import (gnu packages) which imports (guix ui) which calls 'terminal-columns' at module load time iiuc, because of: (define %text-width (make-parameter (terminal-columns)))
