<roscap>zybell_: is there an example of this "login script" you mentioned?
<ng0>checking for potential collision of work: 1) is someone other than me working on XDM + service currently and 2) would we be interested to merge that into master once it has reached a quality I feel like upstreaming to you?
<sneek>ng0, mbakke says: yes, it does actually build!
<zybell_>there can't be. note the prefix 'any'. It depends on the way the individual login is done.
<roscap>zybell_: ah, so like a bashrc? i was assuming it was part of guix source
<zybell_>bashrc could be an example, better is bash_profile.
<ng0>mbakke: eh. depends on what you mean. the window manager I run currently runs as my user. Xorg can not be run without root though, but that's a different matter (I've plans to look into Xenocara and porting+maintaining it if I find it okay enough and functional to integrate)
<ng0>mind you, it's just a window manager. I have no idea how GNOME likes to run etc
<zybell_>Pls note that 'login script' was only mentioned after jsoo asked for a 'band aid'(to do in the meantime,were the words)!
<castilma>where does /etc/guix get set up? through an etc-service?
<castilma>i want to set up offloading. the documentation makes it sound like I just write directly into /etc/guix/machines.scm
<atw>I have two problems which could be guix or could be hardware (librem 13). One is that on my US keyboard, the for backslash and pipe produces < and >. The other is some USB mouse and keyboard oddness: my trackball disconnects for a couple seconds every few minutes. I don't think there's relevant line in dmesg, but I'll keep an eye out. The other is that an external keyboard works only for a few seconds after connecting. Any ideas on
<atw>the trackball itself is power by a single AA. the USB part is just a little receiver.
<zybell_>Ok,that seems to be a problem that doesn't have to do anything with current. There is an experiment I would try:After reboot,without connecting the trackball receiver, connect the keyboard and paste full dmesg.
<atw>I should be able to do that soon, after I finish a backup
<somewun>I'm attempting to set up GuixSD in QEMU, which I've passed -net nic,model=virtio to. I have eth0 available and have tried to bring it up but it seems I'm not getting an internet connection as I get "unknown host" returned from pinging gnu.org. Where should I go from here? Not sure what to do.
<siraben>Hi, I managed to follow the Guix SD manual, but run into this issue as my bootloader is being installed:
<siraben>warning: this GPT partition label contains no BIOS boot partition; embedding won't be possible.
<siraben>Would running parted /dev/sda set 1 bios_grub on fix?
<thorwil>it was the best one i came across this year. while it didn't take me long to consider the date, there was a moment of doubt :)
<jlicht>I started doubting it when I read the list of essential features of pid 1. The length of the patch made me reconsider though
<lfam>sneek later tell alien`: I bet that you became root with `su root`. As documented in the su manual page, this will set your PATH incorrectly for Guix. You need to use `su --login` in order to get the correct PATH
<ngz>I'm currently building musescore again with a patched portmidi. We'll see.
<agaric>hello, i'm trying to add a custom keymap to /share/keymaps by inheriting the kbd package. i'm wondering if this is possible using inherit, or do i need to redefine the whole thing?
<mbakke>jlicht: Glad you liked my prank (the patch actually works!) :-)
<jlicht>mbakke: tbh, I was not a happy camper for the time I still considered it being real XD
<mbakke>It's the most elaborate April Fools prank I've done so far :-P
<ngz>jlicht: OK. It builds. I think I'm going to update portmidi (after checking the number of affected packages) and update MuseScore.
<ngz>Hmm I get an error. Could someone tell me the result for `guix refresh --list-dependent portmidi'?
<mbakke>ngz: I get "Building the following 9 packages would ensure 16 dependent packages are rebuilt: email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com"
