<zero21>racket, specificly drracket package is broken, open file, save file commands close drracket for no reason and those are crucial.
<clacke[m]>roptat: I think guix pull did reuse builds at some point, but later it stopped working. Or maybe its simply that guix.git is moving too fast so the next pull is always different
<buenouanq>Anyone here in control of the blog or should I send emails?
<buenouanq>some notes/edits need to be added to the BeagleBoneBlack post
<buenouanq>namely: a reminder that you need at least a 3GB swap, that the eMMC isn't big enough to compile the image so you have to put /gnu/ under it"s own larger partition, and that just guix pull will take around 3 days
<buenouanq>I'm currently timing the actual build and if all goes well will let you know how long that takes too.

<Guest31815>Does GuixSD have a system equivalent of "guix package --delete-generations=1m"? I assume that "guix gc" won't reclaim space from past system generations unless I do something like this.
<Digit>ACTION decides to search for, and finds, lush, in hopes of trying to make his shell be lispian, in hopes of increasing familiarity, fluency, with lisps, to make guixsd a stronger viable reality for himself
<Digit>do any of you guix daily users have your shell be one of the lispy/schemey/guiley(?) shells? i'm seeing there are quite a few, in various ways of lisp involvement. can you recommend any for conferring transferably useful lispy learning and reasonably pleasant shell use?
<Digit>i'm imagining something that'd have me doing a lot more parens, n a lot less familiar shell'ness... something closer to (if i have my terminology correct) a repl. but then, i'm not so familiar with eshell, in how much lisp you can throw into it and have it understand.
<Digit>ACTION realises, as he types into this erc buffer, with his eshell buffer above, maybe indeed he does not need look further, and just use the tools under his fingertips more actively intently on lisp learning
<clacke[m]>You could try 4 GB for tmp, maybe someone else knows better
<mubarak>yesterday I was trying to connect my laptop with Mobile hotspot(in Android phone) using wpa_supplicant. After reading wpa_supplicant(8) manual page and --help many time and nothing work. So I come back after two hours and I read wpa_supplicant(8) again and wpa_supplicant.conf(5) also. I found that in wpa_supplicant.conf(5) there is new line should be placed after ssid=AndroidAP(the hotspot name) which is "scan_ssid=1". I write it in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
<mubarak> and it worked. It even worked in my brain before trying it, because if we thank about it we need to scan the area for a wifi with the same name as in ssid, and then pass the password to it and after discover the hotspot to connect to it.
<civodul>ACTION .oO ( what does it mean for a build log to be nice? )
<civodul>CharlieBrown: it looks like hydra.gnu.org is overloaded, hence the failure, i'll take a look
<civodul>in the meantime, you can try --fallback as the message suggests
<civodul>it should be back up now (modulo caching of 504 responses)
<mubarak>happy_gnu[m]: I'm sorry for a late reply, I got phone call and got away for a hour and it take me a more than hour to write and my answer. and I'm sorry guix! its a long reply, i have tried to make it shorter. So here it it:
<mubarak>happy_gnu[m]: here in my country all types of network are very expensive, the only a fordable devices with good speed(by good I mean between 45 kb to 300 kp as a max speed) was usb modems(like Huawei E303). We had back then Unlimited bandwidth daily or monthly; now we are forced to subscribe for limited packages(250 MB, 1 GB, 5 GB).
<mubarak>The reason I used a Android phone as a Wifi device is that I really want to install GuixSD and I don't have any wire or wireless devices, only usb modems(mostly Huawei) and networkmanager, modemmanager and usb_modeswitch(is not even in guix packages) does not come in offical .iso image also wvdail is not available as alternative. So I tried Remastering guix .iso like I did to Parabola GNU/Linux-libre desktop live-image(by remastering I mean extracting the i
<mubarak>so to dir and chroot to that dir and install networkmanager, modemmanager and usb_modeswitch and exit chroot and create a custom iso and all that work just so I can connect to the internet to install a distro i want), but it didn't work I think becuse chroot expect all programs(like bash) to be in /usr/bin/bash and in guixsd iso bash in the /gnu/store/...., I even mkdir /usr/bin and created as symbolic link to bash from the store and it still compliane /usr
<mubarak>/bin/bash is not exist. I even thought of using guix-binary as stage to install guixsd just like gentoo, I didn't and I haven't even tried because you need all the essential tools like binutills, glibc, gcc, ... etc to install a distribution and guix-binary is not ment for that. I also thought if I choosed bare-bone.scm as config.scm and istall a minimal guixsd and then I use another live-image distro to connect to the internet and mount sda1,sdb3 to /mnt a
<mubarak>nd chroot to /mnt and install bare-bone.scm to desktop.scm and install xfce and all the packages I need. unforsuntlly i couldn't install guixsd-install 0.14 as they say in the guix refrence manual, the installation require internet access and I don't have any. Last week while I was watching TV i got idea "What if i used a Android device as a Wifi? could it work?" so I closed the tv and and login to my laptop and started to read more about the available pack
<mubarak>age that come with guixsd .iso and here I'm, finally I was able to connect to the internet.
<mubarak>I'm not going to use this phone as a wifi device. Only now for installation, when I install GuixSD i will also install networkmanager and modemmanager. I still have one problem left, which is usb_modeswitch is not available in guix/packages repository. So I will try to define it in scheme and compile and see if i can do it.
<mubarak>You know what they say, If you love it you fight for it. :p
<mubarak>efraim: its not about data usage. As i only have usb modem as only option to connect to the internet. networkmanager, modemmanager and usb_modeswitch is not in guixsd 0.14 iso, so I can't connect to the internet so I can install guixsd
<mubarak>in guix wire and wireless network is the only way to install guix
<mubarak>yes I know about guix-binary, but i want to install guixsd itself
<mubarak>efraim: all the above talk, is a reply to happy_gnu[m], he asked me why i use android phone as a wifi becuse mobile network are expensive
<efraim>guix itself isn't a lot of fun to bootstrap from source, using guix to build a guixsd image isn't too hard, the makefile in the repo has a couple of disk-images that are built for releases and changing them is the same as changing the os-config file
<mubarak>efraim: you mean using guix-binary in foreign distro to build guixsd image?
<adfeno>Hi #guix! ;) I am a submitter of a bug/patch in guix-patches but the upstream of the package I'm working on (and their upstream also) don't seen to want to collaborate to get the package recipe in a maintainable state. Now, due to personal lack of time I want to consider the bug/patch as dormant. How do I tell this with Debbugs?
<adfeno>Note: I know how to use the control server, I just want to know what's the best command to signal that.
<rekado>adfeno: you can just send an email as a reply to inform people that you abandon the patch.
<amz3>lapinpin: that's the purpose of guix pack, that said, you need to create the symlink to the binaries in the store yourself.
<amz3>lapinpin: you can use the content of the pack as a normal user in another system without installing guix
<shiranaihito>is the system config given to "guix system reconfigure" meant to contain everything that's supposed to be installed? for example, maybe i could have postgresql and nginx in a separate system config file
<shiranaihito>there's some trouble with the configs for psql and nginx, and it seems maybe their guix modules have learned new things - at least i don't remember "system reconfigure" warning about a certificate configured for nginx existing
<rekado>shiranaihito: don’t remove %base-packages. You’ll probably need them.
<shiranaihito>it's a bit strange if "%base-packages" should be included, but will result in conflicts :)
<rekado>but you can filter %base-packages if you don’t like it.
<shiranaihito>rekado but where else do the conflicting packages come from, besides base-packages?
<snape>shiranaihito: the real problem is that two different packages (inetutils and net-tools) provide two different versions of ifconfig. If you really need one version rather than the other, then you could either install the one you want as a user, or filter %base-packages. If you don't use ifconfig (because you use 'ip', which is more powerful for example), then fine! Don't worry. Those two packages provide other tools that are needed
