<grillon>I have tried to do pip install something and I have that message : error: could not create '/gnu/store/q5kdj7gpawi94pqd15x3wizjq0nx4zhx-python-2.7.13/lib/python2.7/site-packages/neovim': Permission denied
<grillon>do I have to do something special to use pip?
<grillon>I have installed pip & pip2 with guix as a user
<kyamashita>I see. Neither of us are alpine users, so I guess it can wait.
<ng0>it was mostly about the reprodublice fix, I have no idea if it is fixed now with what I did. and there's darcs where I think lfam and myself agreed that it can be pushed as the https blocking factor lies in curl and is therefore non-blocking for darcs
<kyamashita>I'll try out the new patch you submitted and take a look at darcs.
<kyamashita>quiliro: I'm not sure about the kernel issue, but I think system generations have to be manually removed.
<kyamashita>quiliro: e.g. "sudo rm -r /var/guix/profiles/system-<number>-link", replacing <number> with the generation you want to remove. Be careful that you don't remove the generation that you are currently using.
<quiliro>to recover my correct grub as is specified in the guixsd manual?
<kyamashita>If "guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm" isn't working, "guix system init /etc/config.scm /" shouldn't work either. That, and I'm not sure if that command is safe on a running GuixSD system.
<kyamashita>quiliro: Is there anything weird in your /etc/config.scm that would cause this problem? Are you running "guix pull" and "guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm" as root?
<kyamashita>So if root had any old package generations, you've just deleted them and garbage collected them. Nothing bad should happen though. Root normally has an empty profile by default on GuixSD.
<quiliro>so this garbage collection perhaps destroyed some package needed by the new grub entries?
<kyamashita>quiliro: No. guix package --delete-generations does nothing because root has an empty profile by default on GuixSD (this time I checked). guix gc just runs a normal garbage collection cycle.
<kyamashita>Any GRUB packages still used by any of your system generations cannot be deleted when using guix gc.
<quiliro>it would be great that trisquel based on debian lts
<kyamashita>I realized that I have /root/.config/guix/latest linked to my main user's .config/guix/latest. That means that when I run "guix pull" as my main user, it also updates the guix code for root.
