<reepca>Anyone happen to be using a relatively recent AMD GPU on GuixSD with more than one display?
<Apteryx>reepca: Sorry... Wouldn't anything recent from AMD or nVIDIA require blobs to initialize?
<reepca>Apteryx: As far as I've read, it requires blobs to "make hardware acceleration possible" (found that out when I got 10 FPS using llvmpipe on accident to test 0ad). So I'm not sure to what extent it's supposed to be usable without the blobs. My displays are at full resolution (1600x1200), but they're just duplicated and xrandr is... acting strange.
<Apteryx>reepca: OK. Maybe you should look on the side of the mesa and or linux-libre projects to get answers on the state of things.
<ng0>well project gutenberg is also on archive.org
***boegel|afk is now known as boegel
<brendyyn>Once issue is that it's a bit weird to have such things in /gnu/store, and one cannot use rysnc on /gnu/store to update archives
<ng0>newer version of my static websites are server from /gnu/store/… but for very large archives, I don't know
<ng0>I thought you meant a service as in system-service and this is not limited to /gnu/store
<brendyyn>I wonder if it's possible for rsync to use multiple sources for delta transfer
<brendyyn>ng0: Yeah, a system service, or run as a regular user. then I guess it's most sensible to have the data in their $HOME, but I would also like to use Guix's ability to create symlink forests, but from that home directory instead of /gnu/store
<brendyyn>Like, just use that part of Guix like GNU stow... or jus use GNU stow?
***Guest47600 is now known as sturm
<ng0>if there is something which can be downloaded, it can be made into a package. the service part, that's just a matter of rsync, wget or whatever the other end can use
<Digit>ACTION hopes gnutls doesnt stand in his way this time attempting to update his guixsd and install stuff like git, so he can easily get his fonts package added, so emacs can become legible and useable, so he can have a convenient pleasant environment, while switching from devuan to gentoo on the other machine.
<Digit>nope. k. no idea what to do to get past this. http://dpaste.com/2QS4E2E pls excuse my guix noobness. paths of potential remedy did not jump out at me from numerous reads through man pages and the various guix * --help outputs
<reepca>for starters, what command are you running that runs into that error?
<Digit>erm, if i recall, that was the tail end of the output from guic package -i git. but it's been similar for other commands too. currently giving guix pull another shot.
<rekado>I can load (gnu packages cross-base) just fine, though.
<rekado>Digit: I have no problem with fonts in emacs. Have you tried “fc-cache -f”?
<rekado>civodul: I’m running “make clean-go && make” now, just in case
<Digit>rekado: nah, that's no big mystery problem for me really. just a matter of having copied over my config, and having not yet copied over my fonts. which i then went to git from my repo, n discovered having no git, that git wouldnt install, n guix was in need of sorting out... which it's hopefully doing now thnx to the command suggested by efraim. :)
<rekado>civodul: Guile has no problem compiling the (gnu packages gcc) module.
<Digit>methinks next time, i'll tee output to a file i can upload n link.
<Digit>in general, does guix(sd) dislike being neglected for months before upgrading? ... just wondering if that's a factor. ~ rather than my other suspicion it's something i did prior to the weeks long hiatus from guix.
<jlicht>Digit: In general my experience with my netbook and GuixSD has not been stellar, as I only use it once every 5 months or something
<jamesrichardson>oh my, just tried to perfrom an efi install on a new laptop. I have a grub-isntall error: /gnu/store/...grub-2.02/lib/grub/x86_64-efi/modinfo.sh doesn't exist. Please specify --target or --directory. Wonder what I left out of the config.scm... Rereading the manual.
<brendyyn>Does changing an input to a propagated input not change a packages derivation?
<samplet>Is there an easy way to use Emacs packages in an ad-hoc environment?
<samplet>Just running `guix environment --ad-hoc emacs-*` doesn’t get the packages in Emacs’ `load-path`.
<samplet>I’m thinking about modifying my init.el file to fix this dynamically, but maybe there’s an easier way.
<catonano>samplet: you have to include Emacs in your ad hoc environment
<catonano>ten te Emacs your're callnggg is from outside the env and has no access to te modules IN the env
<samplet>catonano: Right. I think I’ve tried that, but I’ll give it another shot to be sure.
<samplet>catonano: That doesn’t seem to make a difference. Even including Emacs and running `$GUIX_ENVIRONMENT/bin/emacs` doesn’t help. Is it possible the package is broken? I’m trying to play around with Clojure, so I’m looking at emacs-cider and emacs-clojure-mode.
<samplet>catonano: I’m trying some other Emacs packages to see if they work.
<samplet>catonano: Same problem with emacs-yaml-mode and emacs-markdown-mode.
<catonano>samplet: did you include Emacs in your ad hoc env ?
<Digit>how might i go about finding the specific commit i'm to pull to overcome this blockage i^ve been having? (and what command?~ what/where might i add to, presumably: "guix environment guix -- guix pull") or might i just be better off reinstalling from scratch? :/ ... havnt really got anything plushed up n configured yet. dont even have most of my basics installed yet.
<Digit>ACTION goes for a walk, to take a break from the increasingly stressful predicament
<davidl>Anyone here been using gnunet who knows how to get connected? Using the default hostlist for bootstrapping doesn't seem to work.
<Digit>efraim: "unrecognized option"~ ah, nevermind. just needed lower-case. :) proceeding. :) here's hoping this gets me back in the land of the guix. thnx for feeding me that fish, though, i'd still rather have been taught to fish, if you catch my drift. :)
<brendyyn>Unfortunately, the packaged version is 3 years old, because there has not been an update in that time, and there may not be another one for a few months yet
<brendyyn>But the gnunet git repo has a guix package definition in it, so it's not that hard to get it
<brendyyn>The latest git version is not compatible with the old 10.1
<davidl>brendyyn: ok, I'll download that one then instead.
<brendyyn>davidl: Once you get that, try commenting out some of the make flags like --enable-hardening since they caused problems for me and are still experimental, then you can run guix package -f guix-env.scm
<rekado>it’s harder when it’s a document written by many different authors, though.
<rekado>I find it equally challenging to write a paper as a co-author. The hardest part is editing the document to try to make it sound like it was written by only one person.
<catonano>right now I'm entangled in a mess. I can't wait to get back to Guix
<ng0>freifunk connection is terrible right now… lightning on its way. does someone know how many signatures make a "trusted key" for GNU? Just to get an idea how many I have to re-collect on my new key.
<ng0>I have to cycle home.. leave a message in sneek :)
