<Common_Era>I got it running on my Mac, even without EFI support, which I'm very proud of, but it's all very new. Surprisingly big jump from Debian and OS X.
<OrangeShark>ah a Mac, I think I remember someone asking how did you manage to do that :P
<Common_Era>Yeah, I'm supposed to write an email to guix-devel, so I'll be doing that tomorrow. It was a lot of grub.cfg and copying missing files. I also didn't have access to grub-install or update-grub because they apparently
<brendyn>In this case it does the same thing. ' is (quote ...), that simply quotes an expression. ` is quasiquote, which adds the , syntax that is like and exception. `("openssl" ,openssl) says "Don't evaluate this, except for expressions marked by ,"
<efraim>I was thinking they might be worth handling like the bash patches, that get downloaded and hashed rather than stored in the repo
<ng0>no, I'm getting there. will do that soon. but if you like to, you can take over? It's in my projects interest to have an alternative to icecat in the system images which get shipped out, but if you deal with it anyway? I sorted out most dependencies.
<efraim>I don't think I can build it, my machine has 2GB of ram and a spinning HD
<ng0>i mean.. i'm doing it, it just takes a bit more time. but with the aur pkgbuild + gentoo ebuild there's a good scratch of what i need to do
<JamesRichardson>I'm missing or not quite understanding something... What is the best way to handle configurations of applications? I gather that if I wish to say run Exim, I somehow have to get the configuration into /etc (or somewhere exim can find it). I'm not quite sure how to do such a thing, nor am I finding information in the manuals.
