<Lijero>mbakke: it wasn't nss, but it took ages nevertheless. I'd like to be clear I'm running the binary off of the GNU ftp. First off, there was no linker, so I manually set it to a glibc-2.25 one in the store using patchelf. LD_LIBRARY_PATH is now set as you told me to, and [...] libstdc++.so.6 [...] no such file or directory
<Lijero>this is with a fresh untar, none of my weird patchelf failures
<methalo_>it's posible an if condition under configure-flags?
<slyfox>Petter: i'd say you can completely ignore attribution of that comment (i wrote it). If you find explanation useful you can put a link to go's package definition. But it's a very generic problem for guix. I'd say debugging those is the hardest part here :)
<Petter>slyfox: Yeah, good job debugging this! I was clueless :)
<jlicht>Today I kind of appreciated being able to instantiate a vm of my os config to debug some arcane kernel module problems. Is there any way in which a bare-metal GuixSD can also drop me into a guile repl if it runs into some weird issues while booting?
<lfam>jlicht: My understanding is that you will get a Guile REPL if the boot fails, although I'm sure there are ways for even that to fail
<jlicht>lfam: I guess weird OOM errors are not conducive to debugging ;-)
<lfam>jlicht: Ah, that's a case where not much will work as expected :)
<nckx>I urgently need to learn to write services. I think I looked at one too early in my Guix days and now I'm irrationally scared of them. I suspect you're right that it's not hard to do if you know what you're doing.
<lfam>It's never too late to start banging your head against the wall ;)
