<pkill9>oh i think it's cos linux-lbire is deblobbed, ah well
<pkill9>not that that's a bad thing, but i just don't understadn this stuff enough to be able to add support for the nvidia drivers in my system to my install of Guix
<Apteryx>rekado: Per commit facac2928, you'll at least get a warning for symbolink links that don't exist at build time. It also fixed a bug that was creating broken links in our manpages compression profile hook. I'm curious where your error occurs exactly?
<rekado>Apteryx: the problem is with old profiles that still contain packages with broken symlinks.
<rekado>A user here has an old profile and hasn’t upgraded it for the duration of a project. Installing a new package into that profile (while keeping all existing packages unchanged) resulted in a failure to complete the man page hook.
<Stream>there is only linux libre kernel available?or there are also linux libre lts and so on?where can i find such information?
<brendyn>I can't see any lts kernel in the repo. I guess you could package it.
<Stream>i dont know how to do it, i dont even understand how to change slim to gdm
<wigust>Stream: Changing the kernel will not fix issue with monitor if it is a reason to you want to change
<Stream>no it is not related, just i had parabola with linux libre and it got broken, having lts kernel as a fallback option would help i think
<Stream>no, it seems i need a usb flash drive to fix this issue but i dont have any, i thought i might buy one but then i dont know if it is a free software or not, also i found out that some flash drives have proprietary software built in that cant be deleted. and i dont know where to ask such questions whether x is free software or not
<cbaines>efraim, I think using the system wiredtiger breaks MongoDB, at least the system test doesn't pass for me with that change, would you be ok with reverting it for now, just to get the service working again?
<cbaines>I think the other way of fixing it might be to enable snappy compression in the Guix wiredtiger package, I'll try that now
<efraim>cbaines: I think the issue with the bundled wiredtiger was that it doesn't recognize aarch64
<efraim>but if it has to be then I can work on fixing that part
<cbaines>efraim, the problem I'm having looks to be the lack of the snappy compressor with the Guix wiredtiger package
<cbaines>so I'm currently trying out adding the --enable-snappy configure flag, and building and testing MongoDB
<taohansen>so we have a ton of emacs packages bundled up as guix packages. i’m curious to know what emacs users here do to specify configs for installed packages. (use-package :local)?
<wigust>taohansen: After installing an Emacs package it will be auto-loaded, so no need for use-package. Then you configure it with "setq" or "customize" as usual.
<taohansen>wigust: is there no way to defer a “guixed” emacs package’s loading for the sake of speed?
<wigust>taohansen: you could even use guix-emacs-autoload-packages to not restart Emacs after installing a package
<taohansen>“ If, for some reason, you want to avoid auto-loading Emacs packages installed with Guix, you can do so by running Emacs with --no-site-file option (see Init File in The GNU Emacs Manual).” found my answer
<wigust>taohansen: I'm not sure what you mean, but with 55 installed Emacs packages 0.4 seconds to start.
<taohansen>so i could run with emacs with that flag then configure for deferred loading with use-package pointing locally
<civodul>wigust: not even! i couldn't do anything apart from a hard reboot
<civodul>ng0: i think we should stick to 'lambda' for consistency
<ng0>Okay. Next issue: I think there is a misunderstanding with what I criticized on the website. I want talks, recording of talks, and their slides + papers accessible on their own. I couldn't be less bothered by the format they are presented in as long as the links to the files are listed somewhere, possibly with a preview.
<ng0>The current proposal looks like it would be just linking to the blog posts, which is not really a good solution
<ng0>guix system: error: failed to load '/home/user/src/systems/guixsd/workstations/abyayala/config.scm':

<ng0>can someone give me a quick summary on the recent changes in luks/mapped-devices?
<ng0>could be that it's in there because it's not part of %base-services and it would be easier to remove and maybe replace some services from %desktop-services, and I can't be bothered for now to fix it
