<quiliro>I did not notice I was disconnected. Did I miss any response to my question?
<quiliro>anon-iRp3xA: I do not know the answer to your question. But ... have you made a search for that error? I suggest you search: virtual machine no such device
<anon-iRp3xA>Hey :) Yeah I did, but I did not find anything about my particular problem. I think I saw something about the same error, however in that case the (device "...") was actually set wrong, and was actually not mounted.
<anon-iRp3xA>While in my case it shows this message, but then continues and mounts correctly afterwards.
<cbaines>quiliro, I don't think you missed anything. Looking at your problem, it would seem to be memory related?
<quiliro>cbaines: Thank you for your feedback. This machine cannot have more RAM. I have 4 GB and swap and 1.7 GB of RAM. What do you suggest I do?
<quiliro>anon-iRp3xA: for any other messages that give any hint....
<anon-iRp3xA>Not yet, that would be my next step in order to provide more useful information, as I mentioned I thought it might be some obvious minor thing I overlooked.
<quiliro>anon-iRp3xA: The first thing to do is to find the provided information, then to search, then to ask... Why was asking your first option? You wanted to save work? I think that saving work avoids understanding how things are constructed. So doing the steps I told you would be better to learn Guix and have more power on your own system. What do you think? (I do not mean to be rude.)
<quiliro>anon-iRp3xA: I know that reporting what happened also helps Guix correct errors. But you can help more if you solve errors. You can do it only by learning, which is achieved by finding before asking.
<quiliro>anon-iRp3xA: I am sorry. I do not mean to be kinky.
<anon-iRp3xA>You are correct, as I said I did search before asking. As for why I did not analyse further before asking: Like described the "error" seemed very weird to me, as everything is working properly despite, so I thought it could be a known bug I was not able to navigate to, or not yet documented known behaviour. So my approach of looking into it, asking and then providing further information (from my side) seems to me like the right way
<anon-iRp3xA>More like a feedback loop, less like having work done for me.
<quiliro>I am thinking of ho making the most eficient
<reepca>blargh... trying to get emacs to render less squares and more actual characters, but as far as I can tell only stuff in ~/.guix-profile/share/fonts/opentype is being found, nothing from ~/.guix-profile/share/fonts/truetype.
<reepca>Ah yes, fc-cache -f. It's amazing what reading can do...
<quiliro>I would like to know how to find where it is specified what desktop login manager is used when %desktop-services is used. I would also like to know why (console-keymap-service "dvorak-es") only works for console and not for the desktop login manager or i3wm desktop.
<kmicu>[still joking] It’s very boring, but IMO that’s the point. I do not like drama and excitement e.g. like when a pacman update bricks my OS. Boring is good. Let me quote Frankie Dart: “Drama and conflict are exciting and easy, making a difference can be pretty boring.” I think Guix(SD) makes a difference.
<davidl>guix system: error profile contains conflicting entries for tar:out; first entry firstname.lastname@example.org: out /gnu/store/aguuahdsflasdflhjasdhföadsh-tar-1.29; second entry: email@example.com:out /gnu/store dlföadsjföjasdföhadsöfasdöhf-tar-1.29
<Apteryx>are you running that guix system reconfigure command as root?
<davidl>so I wonder if it has anything to do with guile2.2 in guix.
<Apteryx>it looks like you are installing (either explicitly or unwittingly through propagated dependencies) the same packages in both your system profile and your user profile, and so they conflict when attemting to merge those.
