<rekado>nothing I tried consistently fixed the random crashes.
<jonsger[m]>finally Guix 0.14 arrived in openSUSE Factory :)
<thorwil>Apteryx_: if so, can i expect those errors to not reappear, after the whole system has been updated?
<Apteryx_>thorwil: I'm not sure. I'd try debugging the mcron jobs by themselves.
<Apteryx_>you can try running them as your user or with sudo and try to understand what needs to be adapted for them work with the new mcron.
<Apteryx_>(make sure to update your mcron in your user profile first).
<rekado>I’ll see if I can use an older version of JamVM instead of SableVM.
<thorwil>hmm, all mcron has to do here is whatever the defaults are, plus cooperate with a rottlog-service
<rekado>built an older JamVM, but there are still some problems with the Classpath that need to be solved before I can use it to replace sablevm.
<ng0>hi! So I'm trying to switch to a relay OpenSMTPD local.. and the sendmail which comes with it has issues in our installation (with the service running successfully): normal usage with sendmail of opensmtpd gives "cannot create temporary file /var/spool/smtpd/offline/1521994889.XXXXDUZb6n: Permission denied". On Guix this directory is root:root owned, on my OpenBSD this is root:wheel (with more restricted
<ng0_>the lack of info with shepherd services makes me angry sometimes. if there only were a central log for reasons why a service not started instead of tty 1, and in the current virtual terminal you just get "could not be started"
<Sleep_Walker>jonsger[m]: FYI guix will be in next Factory snapshot :)
<Sleep_Walker>%arm is defined as 'armv3l armv4b armv4l armv4tl armv5b armv5l armv5teb armv5tel armv5tejl armv6l armv6hl armv7l armv7hl armv7hnl'
<jonsger[m]>efraim: all four supported platforms a green now :)
<amz3>seems like the outreachy program is going well
<rekado>I just built icedtea with the changed bootstrap.
<rekado>but ant-bootstrap just failed again on berlin.
<rekado>seems easy to fix, but I wonder why it didn’t fail on my laptop
<rekado>hmm, this is more difficult than I thought.
<rekado>it consistently fails to build on berlin, but it builds just fine on my laptop.
<rekado>hmm, the difference is of course the bootstrap phase that exists on the rhel6 branch, but not on master.
<rekado>very disappointing. On rhel6 the new bootstrap JDK doesn’t seem to work. It just hangs when trying to compile ant-bootstrap.
<rekado>Just like the sablevm-based JDK (when it wasn’t just segfaulting)
<ng0>hm... so when you reconfigure at least 5 times in a row without rebooting (could be just a coincidence) on a commit around bba66e7a600b35159d20e41df7c18fc1ec764dd9 (I'm running my czustom thing, this is the last master commit in guix it bases on), so the new shepherd version should be in there, you trigger a kernel panic. I've had 2 in the last 5 hours..
<rekado>I looked at this more closely and jikes can compile the bootstrap source files just fine. It just gets stuck when running the bootstrap ant, which calls out to jikes.
<Apteryx>emacs-guix always gives me: guix environment: error: execlp: No such file oremacs-guix always gives me: guix environment: error: execlp: No such file or directory when trying to use environments.
<rekado>found a way to fix it with a jamvm option. It’s not pretty though.
