<civodul>lyr3: please avoid elusive sentences, "haha"s, and all
<civodul>people are genuinely trying to help and the passive-aggressive style doesn't help us communicate better
<ArneBab_work>I got an error when updating my guix emacs package, potentially because I was too impatient and aborted the checking: Symbol’s chain of function indirections contains a loop: guix-newest-available-packages [4 times]
<cbaines>I'm having some issues with the new ABI checking in guix records, if a version of Guix without these changes is used to compile the Guile code, then the abi-cookie's are missing
<cbaines>It would be good to release a new Guix snapshot with these changes, at least then I think I could avoid the errors by using an updated version of Guix
<rekado>someone updated our emacs package, but emacs-minimal no longer builds now.
<rekado>fails with “configure: error: The following required libraries were not found: gnutls”
<g_bor[m]>Oops... I hope I'm lucky with that... Guix pull is running now...
<g_bor[m]>rekado: also CI builds is a great idea, but I have a feeling, that it is not intuitive for emacs to break emacs minimal. It would be much more acceptable the other way around...
<nckx>g_bor[m]: I think intuitive is subjective in this case (I'd find an ‘emacs’ that extends an ‘emacs-minimal’ that itself is ‘regular emacs’ with bits removed to be... unintuitive at best). I wonder, though, wether ‘guix refresh -l’ should consider inherited packages to be dependents and how this could be done.
<nckx>ACTION has a very ugly WIP somewhere that (ab)uses the properties field to do so.
<g_bor[m]>Most probably part of then confusion arises from the fact, that package relations are not easily mapped to iheritance... It would be nice to have a tool to examine inherited packages.
<nckx>Right! My reference to guix refresh was simply because ‘guix build `guix refresh -l $foo`’ is 99% of my ‘CI’ solution, but wouldn't have caught this case, and I hacked it to do so.
<nckx>ACTION should not be rambling on IRC when completely distracted, sorry.
<rekado>janneke: yes, in frescobaldi you can use either type of keyboard: a computer keyboard or a MIDI keyboard.
<pkill9>rekado: this will make a temporary directory, run weechat with that directory as the session directory, and run '/script' when it runs weechat which on my system gives an error that it cannot find CAfile: mkdir /tmp/weechattest && guix environment --ad-hoc weechat -- weechat --dir /tmp/weechattest --run-command /script
<rekado>pkill9: thanks. Give me a moment and I’ll try it.
<snape>oh I remember you talked about it months ago
