<OriansJ``>janneke: I'm also generating some more examples for M1 for you. That way you'll see it works just fine for x86 and AMD64
<OriansJ``>janneke: also, how are you liking the test structure in MESCC_Tools?
<mekeor>i made "overlayed" ghc-xmonad-contrib with my own package-definition which uses (local-file "/path/to/my/xmonad-contrib") where i added some functions to a module. but after installing it or creating an environment using that package, those functions still aren't available :(
<mekeor>(and yes, i did export the new functions: the new functions are even listed in the /gnu/store/…-ghc-xmonad-contrib-0.13/share/doc/ghc-xmonad-contrib-0.13/html/….html documentation file)
<cbaines>earthfail22, I managed to finish an installation this morning, what specifically isn't working for you?
<janneke>OriansJ``: i've seen bits of reepca's and your work there
<janneke>i have no feeling for forth or where it will be used yet
<rekado_>earthfail22: many people have installed GuixSD on many machines.
<earthfail22>cbaines: the gnu documents were some what vague and first time I tried my keyboard didn't connect the other times there was a problem with something couldn't build in the gnu/store
<rekado_>earthfail22: I have it on many x86_64 and i686 systems.
<cbaines>earthfail22, while my install over the last few days didn't go very smoothly either, I can assure you it is possible
<cbaines>are you trying to install GuixSD at the moment?
<earthfail22>yes and it would be really great it someone could guide me a bit. I've made a bootable usb drive
<OriansJ``>janneke: the best part is the people who want FORTH to be the key to the bootstrap problem are responsible for that work. Personally I prefer the lisp approach and am still formulating how to best attack it.
<cbaines>earthfail22, sounds good, I'd recommend just posting in IRC if you have questions
<rekado_>earthfail22: have you read the instructions from the manual?
<rekado_>earthfail22: which of the steps causes problems?
<rekado_>ACTION decided to sell the old IBM P70 (with Intel 80386 DX)
<earthfail22>rekado_: yes , it failed when trying guix system init and when rebooting
<OriansJ``>sneek: later tell reepca that I've added a new primitive PRINT which takes a pointer and from there prints all characters until it hits a NULL and there will be a proper abort message when insufficient memory is allocated.
<janneke>civodul: yeah, otoh it might mean some real developments, i'm not in touch there
<rain1>I finished the qcode based scheme compiler - it takes 51 seconds to bootstrap. a bit disappointing if you add up the time to compile each stdlib function it is slower than the previous bytecode based one
<rain1>so unless i can sort this i am not sure this stuff will be able to help accerelate mes
<lfam>Yes, that test is flaky. We thought it might be caused by a race condition in the tests but it's occuring even after we disabled parallel testing. I'm going to submit a patch to disable that test.
<sneek>reepca, OriansJ`` says: that I've added a new primitive PRINT which takes a pointer and from there prints all characters until it hits a NULL and there will be a proper abort message when insufficient memory is allocated.
