<Common_Era>Apparently the Guile site directory is /gnu/store/$(hash)-guile-2.0.11/share/guile/site/2.0, but that doesn't exist and /gnu/store is, of course, read-only. How can I install site packages?
<OrangeShark>Common_Era: you would install the packages from guix
<JamesRichardson>I think just add the packages to the (packages (cons* ...)) list in the config.scm file and run guix system reconfig <config>.
<dvc>thinking about business oportunities for guix/guixsd - I think we should market it as a development target for SaaS applications. I'm investigating the possibility of describing SaaS applications as a collection of <operating-system> objects. Then I want to export those operating-system objects into the open container format for easy deployment to existing orchestration services like docker-cloud. WDYT?
<dvc>has someone done previous work for creating docker images from operating-system declarations?
<dvc>the goal of this exercise is to get businesses with large cash flow using guix - from there there should be services and stuff that can be provided around this to monetize on it
<harxa1>has someone realized a simple service similar to the old /etc/rc.local ?
<adfeno>Now, the error that stopped the build was on my part really, I forgot to link Crypto++ library to python2-pycryptopp.
<adfeno>And cryptopp doesn't need python2-setuptools; ?:)
<adfeno>starting phase `unpack'; In execvp of unzip: No such file or directory; phase `unpack' failed after 0.0 seconds; builder for `/gnu/store/idds94y3gxq4b6cjpkkamxqb92kx7797-cryptopp-5.6.4.drv' failed with exit code 1
<adfeno>Interesting... I didn't change the "unpack" phase, but it still failled.
<ZombieChicken>hrm. Anyone having troubles cloning the guix git repo? I've been staring at "Cloning into 'guix'..." for some time now. I clones the shepherd repo a bit ago and it finished almost instandly
<lfam>cue: In Guix, all builds are source builds, but if there is a binary substitute available, it will be substituted transparently. The system is a hybrid of build-from-source and binary package management systems
<lfam>cue: Something has gone wrong with the binary substitution process, which is not expected. Use --fallback to build from source
<lfam>cue: Can you say which package was not substituted correctly?
<cue>thanks a lot lf: i'll give it a shot; since i tried a couple of times already, thinking it might be a connection problem, i was wondering if it'd be possible to avoid mkfsing the partition ervery time
<lfam>cue: What command failed, and which package did it fail on?
<cue>lfm sure: it's the gnome-control-center-3.20.1.drv package
<lfam>cue: And you are using the GuixSD 0.11.0 binary installer?
<lfam>cue: Honestly, the best way to install GuixSD is to start with a bare-bones system. There is a lot less that can go wrong than if you are installing a graphical system. Once the installation is complete, you can reconfigure the system into a graphical system
<lfam>cue: The system is robust once it is installed but, as you can see, the installation process is still brittle
<lfam>Common_Era: It's hard to say what's wrong without any more detail, sorry
<cue>i tried the scm file being suggested in the guix.info.gz
<Common_Era>That's fine. I understand, I'm just not getting anymore details. Thanks, anyway.
<lfam>Common_Era: Can you establish a connection with netcat?
<lfam>cue: There is a 'bare-bones' template in the manual, too
<adfeno>Hi again: quick question: Which package provides C++ compiller ready to use?
<lfam>Common_Era: Does it fail when logging in, or to fail to connect completely?
<ng0>bah. enough for today... I think there's something changed in the last commits in gnunet, but it's too late and I need to learn to quit it and not just work until I got something just the same day.
<lfam>ng0: I tried to review your latest perl-net-psyc and libpsyc packages today, but I can't reach psyced.org to download the source code
<ng0>yeah that's a problem sometimes.. we seem to have gained *someones* interest and the server security is very good, but we its being probed or ddos or something.. not the first time in the last 60 days.. sorry. Where should i inform you when its back?
