<Pastaf>Being terse for various reasons. EFI fails to find internal HDD, no further message. Formatted GPT. Partition one ESP. Partition two encrypted LVM. GuixSD install onto partition two appears to work except bootloader. I have made many attempts to manually install grub using the grub-efi package with target x86_64-efi, setting --efi-directory(?) and --boot-directory to /esp where I mounted partition one. I
<Pastaf>don't think it is an EFI error because worked with debian before just fine, and I'm pretty sure it was using EFI. I'll attempt to get more information, but the installee is distant from this terminal, and is on boot screen, not install stick screen, so I'm working from limited memory and forgot much since this is attempt three to write. I will search for more information and keep checking here.
<Pastaf>If I should try another channel, feel free to redirect me.
<Pastaf>Well, now I've done it again but with BIOS instead of EFI, normal install worked, including grub, I know everything is marked correctly, etc, and it's not working anyway. To be honest, I've been at this for two days, and this is my fifth time trying to install GuixSD, attempted on three machines, and I've failed each time. Honestly, I'm just going to give up on GuixSD until there's a real installer, and just
<Pastaf>do debian (main only, of course). Sorry to bother.
<Pastaf>(I say that, of course, but I know I'll try again within six months. Oh well.)

<Akko_Teru>#dragora, sans systemd, uses store concept and graft. Dragora is a GNU/Linux distro based on concepts of simplicity.
<buenouanq>but can it see why kids love the taste of cinnamon toast crunch?
<rekado>red__: I recommend doing the init with a minimal configuration. Once initialised it’s easy and safe to reconfigure with a different configuration.
<__red__>now trying to work out if there's a way to get guix running in a cloud service provider so I can test and compare against my production NixOS hosts...

<marusich>I'm trying to transfer files from my GuixSD computer to an Android device using MTP. I've tried installing gmtp, and running that as root, but it doesn't seem to be working. Am I missing something?
<rekado>marusich: gmtp is *very* slow to connect (on the order of several minutes), but it does work for me.
<marusich>Not sure if that's the right group long-term, but I think I'll submit a patch.
<marusich>I also had to modify the udev service to use the udev rules from libmtp
<marusich>Is there any way to say "when I install a package (such as libmtp), please also make sure to add its udev rules to the rules used by the eudev service"? I modified the service in my config.scm file, but it would be a bummer if anyone who wants to transfer files to/from their mtp-compatible device needed to remember to do that...
