<oriansj>janneke: well M0/M1 is cpu agnostic. The definitions you create entirely define what target will be generated. Perhaps I should make a guide to clarify how it works and how to create and use definitions.
<janneke>oriansj: ah, so you made it easy by adding MES_CORE_DEFS that can be used to replace everything in Mes and we do that first
<janneke>when that works, we could translate some of that alphabet, if we want
<gnewb>mekeor: I will try using the --manifest option in the future. I just read the documentation.
<gnewb>Since the gtk+ conflict is a bug I will wait until it is gone before I try upgrading again.
<reepca>If anyone wants a mind screw, glance through nix/libstore/globals.cc until you find get(), and then try to figure out which variable "settings" refers to
<efraim>I looked through it a bit when trying to add aarch64 support, not something I really want to relive
<efraim>I still can't figure out why I can run armhf guix-daemon but I can't get the aarch64 daemon to build for armhf even when mirroring the x86_64 and i686 code
<reepca>I'll spoil it then - it's not the global variable declared in the same namespace at the top of the file, nor is it the global variable by the same name declared in another file. It's a "private" variable declared in another file.
<jsierles>i mean the only things needed from the tarball.
<reepca>Well, at some point "guix" needs to be somewhere in the path, I think the manual recommended /usr/local/bin for that. Also a bunch of other directories in /var/guix, like gcroots, profiles, daemon-socket, etc.
<jsierles>OK, fixed all my issues. the issue was using a bind mount from the OSX filesystem. something gets lost in translation there. using a docker data volume works. so, in conclusion, use docker data volumes for guix store on mac!
<bavier>espectalll: there are no dumb questions here
<buenouan1>or just install guixsd and forget about osx ┐( '~')┌
<jsierles>is there a way to get a binary install of git master? or, emulate the binary install process using master?
<jsierles>iirc, rekado you are only using git, not 'guix pull' correct?
<espectalll>rekado: You're right, there's an user-specific path for custom settings
<espectalll>however, this is something that should be rather patched by default on the repo
<espectalll>so at least I wanted to see how to set it globally
<ng0>has someone tried building linux-libre without perl? I'm just watching a talk where it is mentioned that the author commited patches to linux to make it possible to build it without perl, a while back
<jsierles>would 'guix pack guix' create the same thing as the binary install tarball?
<rekado>jsierles: I’m using “guix pull” for a new installation.
<iisjmii>Hello all, I'm new to Guix. I just installed GuixSD. Installation went without errors, but grub doesn't appear to be installed to my device. Which is set to "/dev/sda" which is correct. Any sollutions?
<iisjmii>It is disabled in the bios, set to use "Legacy BIOS" mode
<lfam>Hm, does anyone else have any ideas for iisjmii?
<iisjmii>related, is there a way to chroot into an installed system to try grub-install by hand. Or is this a bad idea?
<rekado>koosha: it’s a regression. Previously 1GB would be absolutely sufficient.
<rekado>koosha: Guile 2.2.2 has a problem with memory consumption.
<efraim>I looked at arch's pkgbuild for links, I might need to tweak ours, framebuffer support would be nice
<koosha>I think it's better to come back to ubuntu yet.
<quigonjinn>iisjmii: could you try to boot the system via the grub in the installation image? If it works, and the grub.cfg is there, you could install grub manually
<rekado>koosha: yes, I think you’re currently better served with a different distribution.
<quigonjinn>iisjmii: boot the usb image, enter grub command line, then: 'set root=(hd1,msdos1)' 'configfile /boot/grub/grub.cfg'
<rekado>koosha: I hope that by the time of the next release we will have fixed these issues.
<rekado>ACTION just installed GuixSD on a server … but it fails to boot, waiting for “my-root” partition to appear…
<quigonjinn>iisjmii: maybe grub is installed, but the BIOS is trying to boot the other disk? I see you have 2
<ng0>so I just had this epiphany and made a 360° circle in the development on my system, in other words I solved the knot I had and I hope that there can be an 100% compability between the systems. it is super modular and if this works out the way I think it does, I have just come up with the (currently) best way to start building customized and preconfigured systems on top of GuixSD with compability to GuixSD and
<quigonjinn>iisjmii: or it might be 'hd0,msdos1', you can type 'ls' to see all partitions
<catonano>keeping a spreadsheet opened and idle in Libreoffice gets my cpu to spin unreasonably and my laptop to get so hot ! Especially in these days this is no good ! I was wondering if anyone has any experience related to Libreoffice to share
<lfam>catonano: Do you have access to another distro, so that you could see if their libreoffice package does the same thing?
<catonano>ng0: in my experience, when my technician refreshes my thermal grease and cleans my grates, the computer seems like a brand new computer. Too bad that doesn't last very long, it should be done every couple of months
