<quiliro>that is when using it on the command line
<quiliro>but when it is just started (gui), it will report:
<quiliro>(gnome-calculator:8755): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.gnome.system.proxy' is not installed
<quiliro>even if the first message is a warning, it gives me problems with non-us characters
<sturm>What do people do in the case where a Python package attempts to download `test_require` requirements during the build process? Patch it to remove these from setup.py and put them in the Guix package definition instead?
<quiliro>do i need to guix pull as user when i have done it as root?
<catonano>quiliro: yes. As root you update packages available to all users, suchhe as thheh desktop environment
<catonano>guix package -u updates the deinitions of the packages to the most recent available
<sturm>catonano, quiliro: I think this is different between Guix (on foreign distro) and GuixSD right? On Guix the root user's packages include the desktop environment, but on GuixSD the desktop infrastructure is managed by the "system" account. Have I got that right?
<catonano>oh yes I was assuming quiliiro is on GuixSD
<catonano>on Guix there's no desktop env ad ar as I know
<sturm>quiliro: so if I understand right (and I probably don't heh), you need to `sudo guix pull` to update root's package list, `sudo guix package -u` to update any of root's packages (probably not many) and `sudo guix system reconfigure [config file]` to upgrade the system packages. Then separately if you want updates to locally installed packages, you need to `guix pull` and `guix package -u` (as your normal user).
<sturm>I think that's the GuixSD equivalent of `sudo apt-get update`, `sudo apt-get dist-upgrade`.
<quiliro>'gnome-calculator' needed 'gnome-destop' to work correctly. it was giving an error: '(gnome-calculator:16031): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'org.gnome.system.proxy' is not installed Trace/breakpoint trap' until i installed 'gnome-desktop'
<rekado>wingo: hah, good timing. I was going to do this today, but delayed it.
<wingo>rekado: fastcgi you mean? perhaps you would be interested in testing :)
<thomasd>quiliro: I haven't tested if this is all that's needed to make gnome-calculator work correctly. You could try removing gnome-desktop, adding gsettings-desktop-schemas, and see if that solves it.
<davexunit>jonsger: go for it if you want. I haven't used diaspora in years.
<civodul>for the 2nd question :-), 'guix package --list-generations'
<quiliro>civodul: i did that. but it would not show me what dependencies were installed...it just showed the packages i ordered being installed
<quiliro>civodul: i had problems with gnome-calculator...so i installed several packages (including gnome-calculator itself) in order to repair the problem....the problem was solved when i installed gnome-desktop...but it did not return when uninstalling gnome-desktop
<quiliro>so i assume it is a package that was installed as dependency to gnome-desktop which solved gnome-calculator's problem
<ng0>hacky-dihack is sometimes a solution I see in nix packages. like, I approach torproject and ask for trademark use in an not so grave altered torbrowser, Nix just combines two things and elfpatches them :)
<ng0>it's a hack and works. just like a CPU is just a rock we teached to think
<ng0>has someone tried out https://redox-os.org/ ? I'm curious about it, but the documentation lacks the points where I have question how they want to solve certain features. It's interesting, but also full of potential issues
<ng0>an OS + microkernel + later package manager build in rust
<ng0>makes you wonder.. would it be logical to take the steps and implement a micro kernel in scheme. okay, we have the hurd coming up, and kernel development depending on how you approach it can be rather slow or fast
<amz3`>I also rely on nightly biwascheme, that doesn't make more interesintg...
<mekeor>hey. i installed guixSD on my hard disk. but my grub-config was wrong in the config.scm. now, i'm in the live usb-image again. how can i re-apply the config without downloading and compiling all the packages again? i just want guix to apply the new grub-config...
<amz3`>mekeor: you know how to chroot into your installed machine via the usb image?
<ng0>but chroot wasn't really working last time I checked :/
<ng0>you can do some things, but interaction with guix daemon wasn'Ät possible
