<brendyn>ng0: Is libressl set to replace openssl completely?
<ng0>the parts it intends to replace it does. the others are dropped. there's the libressl website and documentation itself, and there is also https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:LibreSSL .. with choosing exact versions of software which had been tested with libressl already and possibly patched, i was able to setup a functional desktop system 6 months ago or e ven earlier.. the early blockers, last year were mysql which has also been fixed by now.
<brendyn>Well Guix can have everything all at once \\o/
<ng0> 'hasufell committed on Jul 13, 2014' .. first commit when work on libressl testing started in gentoo, at that time not an official community project.
<ng0>i still have to test my own ebuilds and packages against libressl.. i was focused more on fixing the features rather than testing ssl.
<ng0>i think I can unbundle fonts in 0ad-data.. some we already packaged. i also see no mention of https://www.latex-project.org//lppl/ this license, yet gentoo claims this is used in 0ad-data or was it 0ad.. licenses can be added later though.
<brendyn>Just make it so everyone can set their keyboard layout and language.... It'll be easy, they said.
<brendyn>Currently there are 4 different places I need to deal with keyboard layout settings. The login shell, login manager, wayland, and X
<brendyn>I think Guix currently has not a single line of Chinese translation ;/ Gotta start somewhere I guess
<ng0>O.o nvidia-texture-tools last release tarball is from 2010.. i'm picking patches from commits between 2010 and 2016 and I wonder if I should just use a commit from this year instead. one of them fixes gcc 6 compilation for example
<ng0>so how do other haskell applications deal with finding terminfo, which comes with ghc itself? I accidentally packaged it, figured out this causes problems to darcs, but correcting it does not make haskeline detect terminfo.. any info for someone who knows ntohing aboiut haskell?
<cehteh>that makes me thinking about how would one package such conviniently in guix, of course one package for the resize tool, but then it would be nice to have some facility which generates and installs scaled cursor sets
<bavier>cehteh: could just be a procedure that produces a scaled font package from an existing X font.
<cehteh>if we can get deterministic builds out from persistent (git) checkouts w/o copying a massive amount of files around for building that would safe a lot resource
<cehteh>of course with a big 'IF' .. no shortcuts, that idea only works when it holds the same determinism gurantees that the current build does
<cehteh>but IF it works, then i think there should be no much arguments against it
<bavier>remind me again, what leads to the non-determinism with the .git directory?
<ng0>the -x for guix hash was the best minor addition recently for me. copying my working repos only to hash them was annoying.
<ng0>i have 20 failing shell tests for darcs out of 430 total tests, so that's something which should be fixable. and if it's just the tests andcan't be fixed right now tests can be disabled.
<bavier>ng0: are they failing because of /bin/sh paths?
<ng0>there's something the haskell importer should get.. a list of 'base' packages which do not have to be packaged.. so you get 'inputs ghc-terminfo' and you think you need to pacjage it while you actually just have to use ncurses as input and let ghc handle it as it is already existent.
<bavier>wilo: as long as you have the mount point declared in your os configuration
<ng0>darcs failed: Not a repository: https://pijul.org (Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with given CA certificates) ... this means, before i debug the 20 tests tomorrow, that darcs also needs one of these ssl pointers I hate and curse
<bavier>seems a lot of people like to bundle their own certs
<ng0>no, that's just curl_ca, git_ca etc all over again .. maybe one just needs to get used to setting it via environment variables, but it's not ideal imo
<ng0>in the web browsers, the cert for pijul.org is accepted
<bavier>right, I meant to suggest it's not a nice practice
<plskillme>hi, I'm just dropping by to bitch a bit, hope you don't mind. See, first time I got guix it was version 0.9 I think. I liked it, it would install seamlessly which nearly no other GNU/linux distribution does for me
<plskillme>just following the steps, no nasty surprises
<plskillme>but new releases of guix always fail with an error and I never can get it done, at all
<plskillme>the reason is also never helpful, this time gtk+ something failed
<ng0>60 days are enough to move a font from one url to another, I think.. i have initiated a renaming of my sdf.org account, where guix currently pulls one font from due to upstream being broken and not responding.
