<jlicht>CalGuixSD: hmm, and I guess --fallback takes too long for your liking?
<CalGuixSD>jlicht: I just hope it will work. I've never used a source-based distro like Gentoo; I'm not used to waiting on compilation. I used FreeBSD, but it didn't need to compile the system.
<jlicht>CalGuixSD: Well, usually you should have access to perfectly fine substitutes, making it about as fast as your internet connection allows. It just seems that the last few days, subsitutes have been a bit flakey
<CalGuixSD>jlicht: I could install Tor, WeeChat, Links, tmux and curl, and am using them right now, but it can't seem to do the whole system with substitutes. (I notice it couldn't sub torsocks.
<OriansJ>DoublePlusGood23: well you have a couple choices, 1) you can accept the design choices of the people burning lots of hours making the tools you use 2) Help them by improving it for your own requirements 3) Figure out something else
<DoublePlusGood23>CalGuixSD: One thing you'll want to change is use (title 'device) in the file-system section. It's mentioned in the docs.
<OriansJ>DoublePlusGood23: we always appreciate everyone who takes the time to chip in as many of us tend to be quite busy with the various pieces we work on. For example my stage0 project is attempting to reduce the GuixSD root of trust down to a single 280 byte Hex Monitor
<CalGuixSD>DoublePlusGood23: Whatever the docs said about 'device, it was not clear.
<OriansJ>CalGuixSD: What sort of things could we add to the docs to help that part be more clear for you?
<DoublePlusGood23>CalGuixSD: You'll want it to be like (title 'device) and (device /dev/mapper/foobar)
<CalGuixSD>To make the system use UK Dvorak keyboard layout in the terminal by default, I put (gnu services base) in (use-modules ...), and put (console-keymap-service "dvorak-uk") in (services ...). Is this correct?
<buenouanq>DoublePlusGood23: interesting, the reinstall of OSX didn't touch the EFI partition - It's my same GuixSD menuentry with the partuuid... No idea why it wouldn't load before or why I had to reinstall OSX now...
<ArneBab_>CalGuixSD: I did not find anyone who actually hates wisp — not even among lispers (where I had expected quite a bit of pushback, but it did not come — which might be because I do not actually hate parens but see their potential: they make it very, very easy to provide excellent editor support, like paredit or … /me goes digging for the package)
<CalGuixSD>Without Lisp-specific plugins, editing nested brackets is something I don't want to do. If I used vi, I'd convert code to Wisp for editing purposes, then convert it back.
<ArneBab_>I agree to that, too … (counting the parens to close at the end when I need to work on lisp outside my usual environment is horrible)
<jackhill>Unfortunately, I notice that Debian no longer ships the guile-gnutls package. From the changelog: Drop guile-gnutls package, testsuite errors have stayed unfixed too long. Closes: #821457, #805863
<rekado>ng0: the “gnutls” package itself is built with guile-2.0, so you won’t be able to use the bindings with guile-2.2
<ng0>rekado: I can post it to the mailinglist. But basically what I'm doing is: I have a Debian server which runs Guix for a while already (from binary installation) and I'm trying out a method of manually compiling guix documentation from source before I switch to a guix package I write for it, to offer an more up to date copy on my server.
<ng0>well... that's weird. why am I still able to compile on all systems then?
<Apteryx>What would be the git command to bissect it? 'git bisect
<catonano>it looks like the binary for linux-4.9.24 is not available :-/
<enno_>Hello. I want to use Guix as main OS on my home pc. All the packages I need are already there, but I have a Realtek 8168g-2 network chip with binary only firmware. How can I add this the Guix way?

<ng0>phase `build' failed after 8850.5 seconds … wake me up when gcc is build for amd64 again :/
<ng0>I think I will look up parts of my error message tomorrow and if I don't understand it, I will send the patch + error message
<rekado>ng0: if you have a particular error message that sticks out as incomprehensible, please feel free to report it and maybe suggest a better way to report the error. There might be cases where it wouldn’t be too difficult to improve the error messages.
