<civodul>i understand it's not as convenient as one would like :-)
<pkill9>hmm i'm compiling something (veracrypt) which looks for 'cc' but can't find it in the `guix environment` even thoguh i gave it gcc-toolchain. on my distro 'cc' is just a symlink to /usr/bin/gcc
<pkill9>is there a package i need to add to the environment?
<adfeno>pkill9: I think it might aswell accept the CC variable to be set to "gcc".
<pkill9>the variable where adfeno? In the veracrypt source?
<pkill9>I changed the MakeFile to refer to 'gcc' where it was referring to 'cc'
<Digit>ACTION wishes guix well, so well, oh so well, and wishes he had more to offer other than well wishing, but is spread too thin, so instead, every few weeks/months, he mentions/actions his love for guix, and thinks that encouragement will have to be enough as his contribution to guix
<Apteryx>civodul: Morning! I'll try replacing invoke with a open-pipe* based approach which will both collect exit-status *and* output of program when it failed. I had done something like this in the (fiasco finder) script.
<taylan>civodul: I commented out the uuid and used /dev/sda1, still no luck. maybe that just broke it further though, as I'm getting a different error now: "pre-mount actions failed". I think it previously was LUKS partition not found, followed by a byvevector.
<civodul>rekado_: oh, looks like you're less optimistic than i am
<civodul>taylan: "LUKS partition not found" means you provided an incorrect UUID
<civodul>you should check with cryptsetup what the right UUID is
<taylan>btw two questions: 1. can I reconfigure the system without needing to re-run all of "guix system init ..." from the install media? 2. can I access a shell from the REPL I'm put into when boot fails?
<civodul>rekado_: is there anything non-java i can do to help you on core-updates?
<civodul>taylan: 1. not really; 2. try ",bournish" at the REPL to get a Bourne shell-like interface
