<lycium>Hi all, quick one: Does docker/docker-compose work in GuixSD? What packages do I need to install, I can only see docker-compose.
<pkill9>does guix by default remove CPU-specific optimizations to make the produced packages more universal?
<pkill9>(i don't know much about compiling, I'm just under the impression that compiling software yourself will generally include optimizations for the hardware it's compiled on)
<pkill9>oh I think i see that those optimizations are removed in libraries in build arguments
<ng0>does the base-initrd default to linux-libre or the value linux has inside the system configuration? I'm reading gnu/system/linux-initrd.scm and it shouldn't pull in linux-libre when I have the key linux in the base-initrd, but it does
<ng0>of course it is very likely that some other part of my system pulls in linux-libre, but it didn't happen before
<ng0>for non linux-libre I'm on my own, I realize this, but the behavior is weird.
<risci>Slightly off topic, what are your thoughts, 'data as programs'. Reasoning is, essentially, guix is acting as 'data as program', earlier I would have to copy my whole system (like /etc /var /home etc.)
<risci>To make a backup, but with guix a configuration file is all I need, and it is considerably smaller in size
<risci>Voila, data can be represented as programs.
<ng0>firefox 54 as ESR is still many months to go, right? I'm experimenting with trying to get version to compile on Guix that are past the point where Mozilla decided to disable the --disable-rust switch. I guess this could be useful for Guix when when ESR becomes one of those versions
<thomassgn>dang, afraid I need a new hdd. had to do a fsck to boot the other day and now I keep getting 'guix package: error: build failed: setting synchronous mode: disk I/O error' from 'guix package -i anypackage'.
<ng0>so someone had the idea that we (or some Debian-related OS, like Whonix) could call in a Debian community voting on Nix and Guix being treated as an exception to the standard Debian package policies. I think no one considered this while trying to get Guix into Debian, right?
<Apteryx>rekado: could you advise on the requirement to run jackd as a service vs just letting the application that uses it manage? Should we have a GuixSD service for jackd?
<thomassgn>can't find any of this string in the sources though, anyone have some idea what is triggering it? Cause the rest of my system works more or less as expected...
<ng0>nckx: I can't find the right links in the bugticket, but I think it was also about the bootstrap binaries
<thomassgn>Ah, I can use df -ih to get easier numbers... :P
<nckx>ng0: Oh? Interesting. I'll have to look that up. Thanks.
<ng0>Nix has debs at some point in the past, and since Nix stopped making .deb's, Whonix is considering Guix if we can get to some point of integration that works for them. binary installation is no option.
