<davidl>and my guix init command fails with Network is unreachable despite other pings working fine.
<davidl>I was thinking thath this is perhaps a timeout issue? Since it works fine for quite a while until this happens.
<davidl>probably there's a timeout issue with hydra mirrors since a simple reboot with my usb install medium and now it all seems to download again. I guess a very lightweight initial configuration is the way to go.
<DoublePlusGood23>gives me an error that it can't find ncursesw/curses.h even though I have ncurses in the inputs.
<reepca>I don't see any -I flags for the compiler that tell it where to search for header files. So it's probably searching in the "default" locations (I think /usr/include maybe?). Anyway, somehow you need to tell the makefile to tell gcc where to look for the header files. I'd guess this would involve patching the makefile.
<rekado>brendyyn: you can easily change from wicd to network-manager
<rekado>brendyyn: it’s just that the default services include wicd, because it has been in Guix for longer.
<rekado>(I’m still using wicd, because I didn’t get around to playing with network manager)
<reepca>so I'm trying to look at the contents of a package object in guile, and trying to use "display" within the inspector is causing it to say "invalid arguments to display", but "help display" just says "print the current object using `display'."
<solene>i'm trying to install openssh and start sshd but I can't find how to start ssh. herd status | grep ssh doesn't show anything
<solene>I'm trying to understand how to configure services but I fail to find it in the documentation. I have a /etc/config.scm that I made for the installation, is it still necessary ? I wasn't able to find anything else looking like a configuration file in /etc
<rekado>the configuration file is how you define your system
<rekado>each time you want to change something in the way your system works you would edit the configuration file
<rekado>and then run “guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm” as root
<rekado>(note that this would use the root user’s version of guix, so it’s advisable to run “guix pull” as root as well)
<rekado>solene: to add an ssh service you need to add “(service openssh-service-type)” to the list of services in your configuration.
<solene>rekado: I will check this, the reconfigure commands seems what I was lacking
<solene>rekado: something like (services (cons (service openssh-service-type) %desktop-services)) ?
<rekado>solene: I recommend reading the Info manual, section “Invoking ’guix system’”
<solene>rekado: thanks for you help, I will study this. The manual is quite big I didn't know where to "start". I'm the kind of people which learn by practicing and doing mistakes, I can't read the whole book to start :D
<davidl>so I managed to install on a btrfs subvolume that I used "btrfs set-default" on (using dos instead of GPT) however, now the boot-configuration is shit cuz my system is placed in /sv_root instead of /.
<davidl>except when I mount from the usb, then the system is directly under /mnt.
<davidl>is anyone successfully using btrfs with guix?
<efraim>catonano: yeah, I saw the emails, about to try them out now
<reepca>it's a transitional thing caused by that particular "guix pull".
<solene>reepca: ok, so if I undertand, i just need to run "guix pill" to fix this
<reepca>solene: worth a shot, I don't remember exactly what I did but it turned out okay ¯\\_(ツ)_/¯
<castilma>after hours and hours of .. I don't know, compiling, configuring, downloading substitutes and more, guix system init /mnt tells me, there is no more space left on the device. I made a 5 gb image as recommended in the docs. how big is your installed guixsd?
<civodul>castilma: what kind of install is it? GNOME?
<janneke>guix pull: error: build failed: some substitutes for the outputs of derivation `/gnu/store/5ch78mg064h0fcn141kmwqm7cvqrijxv-gcc-4.9.4.drv' failed (usually happens due to networking issues); try `--fallback' to build derivation from source
