<OriansJ`>wxie: in the examples it is the .scm file but its name can be arbitrary
<wxie>Oriansj: Thanks. Can I run the command with my current scm file?
<OriansJ`>wxie: as I don't know the contents of your current scm file; I am uncertain of the interactions with the guix system reconfigure command. However assuming it is a valid guix system configuration it will work
<wxie>ok, my scm is the one I installed guixSD so it is valid.
<demotri>castilma: Sorry, lacking behind with my writing :-)
<demotri>castilma: Yes, sometimes I don't check out the latest master, but some commit lacking a bit behind. Today I was too lazy, so either I let it compile now or go back a day or two. Maybe I try going back and see anyway if I have a problem with the installation image.
<mbakke>Oh no, Chromium 65 requires Clang 5 or higher.
<grillon>Hi how could I go back to a previous version? I did "guix system switch-generation 1" but Igot guix system: error: build failed: error parsing derivation `/gnu/store/k5spngba6awg0hdfvq8fc33zncbgawkr-grub-image.png.drv': expected string `Derive(['
<mbakke>grillon: That sounds like a corrupted store item. Are you on ext4 by any chance?
<grillon>after a guix system reconfigure I got guix system: loading new services: user-homes term-auto virtual-terminal... shepherd: Evaluating user expression (register-services (primitive-load "/gnu/st?") ?). shepherd: Service user-homes could not be started. guix system: error: exception caught while executing 'start' on service 'term-auto': ERROR: find-long-options : variable non liée
<grillon>is it a bad thing to do that from graphical desktop?
<civodul>no, actually that 'find-long-options' issue was supposedly fixed recently
<grillon>seems ok no so bad, I'll leave it one night to see
<grillon>mbakke it's exactly the same : after a guix system reconfigure I got guix system: loading new services: user-homes term-auto virtual-terminal... shepherd: Evaluating user expression (register-services (primitive-load "/gnu/st?") ?). shepherd: Service user-homes could not be started. guix system: error: exception caught while executing 'start' on service 'term-auto': ERROR: find-long-options : variable non liée
<grillon>rekado I have ime but when I select it it does not work. Do you have any idea?
<roscap>thorwil: despite my inexperience with guix, i wonder if it's a bug with "guix system reconfigure" for requiring the nvme module when nvme is already built into the kernel. (nvme is required in my case for booting the harddisk)
<thorwil>roscap: one could call it a bug. or a nasty sideeffect ;)
<roscap>thorwil, ah, i hadnt thought of it that way
<thorwil>roscap: as described in that post, got hit by kernel module requirements and specifically the insistence on modules, never builtin, too
<ng0>are there any dependencies attached to the perl standard ways for Makefiles except for perl5 and make itself? I'm trying to figure out wether I should kick my GNUmakefile in the bin and use perl tools.
<ng0>bsaically I have a software (I'm porting/providing a general makefile) which 1) already depends on perl5 2) consists of name.1 module/name.pm and "name" in toplevel as executable script.
<ng0>seems more convenient for Guix to use something perl based :)
<rekado>civodul: it was just a linker error. No problem with avr-gcc.
<roscap>thorwil: so i read thru your post. have you found a way, since that post, to make kernel configuration more independent from generations?
<thorwil>roscap: no, got no answer and didn't pursue
<PotentialUser-55>Should I learn guile/scheme before I install GuixSD? If so, is the GNUs guile manual the best place to learn scheme?
<ng0>I'm not sure if I'm trapped in a rebuild cycle.. 3rd time I see git compiling now... I'll give it one more time
<tmpton>Hey, my old usb wificard is behaving dead. So I need a new one. Checking the RYF pages of FSF now, but there has been some (one?) mention of devices reported as free but not working properly. Anyone has experience/knowledge of this?
<buenouanq>PotentialUser-55: it will help in some things if you really want to dig deep, but is not necessary for normal basic desktop use
<buenouanq>Best intro to Scheme (and programming in general) I still think is and will always be MIT"s SICP Lectures.
<Aprophecy>Hello beautiful people. I ubuntu gone rogue into the deep end of shit. I've installed guix and I'm using vim to get my configuration. I've copied it to /etc/config.scm but I'm not sure what happens next.
