<kevinfish>How do I get paste working under i3 in icecat?
<mb[m]1>kevinfish: Are you referring to preserving newlines? Unfortunately I don't have an answer, but I'm surprised about the assertion that it's i3-specific (I have the same problem on i3). Did you verify that it worked under say GNOME?
<kevinfish>no, when I tried to install a normal desktop from boot it got too complicated, so I went with the minimal GUI install. When I try and paste, either with a C-v or by cording the mouse buttons it just jumps the browser into a very strange place. Doesn't seem to work at all. Like if I'm on facebook and I have a field I'm trying to paste into with lots of comments in a sub-thread it jumps to a place where the main posting is all th
<kevinfish>..backwards go get back where I was. If I click "comment" to enter a comment all my previous typing is just gone
<kevinfish>Also it GuixSD seems to be VERY slow for the class of machine I'm using, config files I set in my non-privileged user account get overwritten on boot, and important utilities (like "mount") are no longer available in the root user
<wigust>kevinfish: Config files for user overwritten on boot? Do you mean user home directory? Guix doesn't touch them at all as any distro.
<mb[m]1>kevinfish: Oh, that seems to be a different bug. What kind of machine are you using?
<mb[m]1>Also, as wigust mentioned, GuixSD only touches files managed by your system configuration.
<roptat_>I didn't look older versions of groovy too closely because they all required a groovy compiler, so I figured it would be just like maven: better to build the latest version and ignore previous ones
<roptat_>but if it does provide a bootsrapping step that doesn't require groovy, it's worth trying to build 2.0.0-beta3
<mb[m]1>efraim: I have a bunch of updates queued for core-updates that will invalidate all your substitutes. Building them now and will probably push later/tomorrow.
<efraim>apparently audacity indirectly depends on nss
<castilma>hey, guix system reconfigure tells me using device in bootloader configuration is deprecated and I should use target instead. 1. the doc should be updated to mention this. 2. does it mean the `target` of mapped devices ($ info guix mapped).
<mb[m]1>efraim: It wasn't a test failure (was watching intermixed build output), it's actually a compile error.

<vagrantc>seems to be looping on: downgrading to read lock on `/var/guix/temproots/4549' ... acquiring write lock on `/var/guix/temproots/4549'
<vagrantc>just when i think i have the hang of this...
<castilma>any tips on how to dualboot guixsd and nixos? would you recommend chainloading? both create many menuentries. I guess it is not possible for one system to recognize the system options the other wants, right?
<mb[m]1>When both <cmath> and math.h is included, GCC fails to locate std::signbit.
<castilma>i installed guixsd on my machine and it boots but there are 1.5 problems: 1. the boot hangs: lsh tries to generate a key, but it only gets 31 bits of randomness, it asks me to give it more by typing random stuff, but: 1.5 no keys seem to get registered. unplugging and replugging it results in kernel infos being printed on the console, saying it recognised a new device. any ideas? maybe this gets better if it booted until the end: can i
<castilma>vide guixsd/lsh more randomness through a file?
