<dan__>no dictionary install but DICT env var is set
<brendyn>dan__: Guix is a little bit borked at the moment because many changes have occured since the last release. I was able to get mine updated after running guix pull many times with different commits, reconfiguring and rebooting a few times
<brendyn>Copenhagen_Bram: it's easy to install it just look on the spacemacs site
<dan__>like generate a .emacs with my specs for a certain user ?
<apteryx`>hi! I'm stuck trying to update guix on this error: In procedure private-lookup: No variable bound to define-module* in module (guile). I think it was discussed somewhere but can't find it. Any pointer?
<g_bor[m]>Copenhagen_Bram: actually the root account is defined in gnu/system.scm in the sources. I guess you can modify that if you really want :)
<dan__>it hsould be overidable somehow, else it doesnt make any sense
<g_bor[m]>Copenhagen_Bram: Okay, a better look at the code there and here is the solution: provide a user account with uid 0, then it becomes the root account. You can the provide the shell.
<g_bor[m]>roptat: I've noticed that after a clean git checkout, and rebuilding everything I have the french manuals modified. I guess that's because not the most recent version is checked in. Can you have a look at that? I guess we should just regenerate the files and check in the modified version WDYT?
<thorwil>guix configure still fails here, not finding guile-sqlite3
<thorwil>within either `guix environment guix` or `guix environment guix --ad-hoc guile-sqlite3`
<thorwil>to be precise, it prints "checking whether Guile-Sqlite3 is available and recent enough... no"
<thorwil>the last guix pull and a fresh git clone of maybe 10 minutes ago
<g_bor[m]>thorwil: could you try guix environment guix --ad-hoc guile-sqlite3 or similar?
<thorwil>g_bor[m]: that already happened. something strange is going on here
<roptat>hulten, (something-service) means that you call a procedure named something-service. This procedure is defined to return the result of calling (service something-type), which is essentially the same as calling (service something-type) directly
<roptat>the procedure can be nicer, because it can have multiple optional arguments, whereas service has one mandatory argument and exactly one optional argument
<rekado>sneek: later tell thorwil The error you get about lesspipe is because you’re in a pure environment, but your shell initialisation scripts refer to things like lesspipe that are not in the environment.
