<roptat>if you fear it could cause some build failures though, it may be better to send it to staging
<roptat>you can also try and build some of these dependent packages
<g_bor>Actually I don't think there will be any failures. It adds an output... Does not touch anything else. Ok, I will push this then, and close.
<roptat>g_bor: did you start working on translating the manual?
<roptat>civodul: make dist creates guix-UNKNOWN.tar.gz, is that expected?
<roptat>also, DIST_DEPENDS_ON_UPDATE_PO is set to no, but po files are still updated by dist
<g_bor>roptat: Actually not yet. I'm focusing on java instead for now. I've also started working on a prometheus service.
<rekado>hmm, recent changes to the repository seem to cause Guix to freeze
<rekado>I’m trying to do ./pre-inst-env guix package -i alsa-plugins but it just sits there.
<g_bor>I've found that mirror://sourceforge generates and url ending with project. It seems, that pipewalker has a different uri scheme, not containing project. Is these an easy way to get rid of that, or is it acceptable to use downloads.sourceforge.net directly, as was in the original patch?
<rekado>roptat: I installed alsa-lib and alsa-plugins into my profile, but ALSA_PLUGIN_DIR is not set.
<jorgesumle>I still have the annoying "guile: warning: failed to install locale"
<rekado>roptat: I see that there is only a “native-search-path” specification.
<rekado>jorgesumle: make sure that you have “glibc-locales” installed, that the GUIX_LOCPATH environment variable points at the “lib/locale” directory, and that you’re using the same version of the libc.
<rekado>jorgesumle: this is described in the manual.
<g_bor>Ok, so it will only get to the next release. Fine. Just asking because we have an open bug for packaging 3.7 beta2, but I think it is not needed any more. What should be done with it? The patch is almost good for 3.7, but I'm sure that Hartmut has it at hand :)
<Digit>hi. after figuring out why i couldnt install, was the daemon's not running, i try start it, but get: "error: cannot bind to socket `/var/guix/daemon-socket/socket': Address already in use" but searching for that gets no results.
<roptat>hi Digit, are you trying to install guix or guixSD?
<Digit>first i attempted to install some package, n got these two lines: http://dpaste.com/18RY5PR n then (after searching both those lines for a while), i gather the daemon's not running, then i find how n where, launch it, n get that line above. and then i'm stumped
<Digit>no idea how to check guix's log. not yet at all familiarised with its ways.
<Digit>oh, wait, you mean devuan's logs for guix, ... there, i'm just as lost. n_n
<roptat>ok, so running "ps aux | grep guix-daemon" doesn't show anything except grep, right?
<roptat>can you check that /var/guix and /var/guix/daemon-socket are owned by root?
<roptat>Digit: sorry, I don't really have other ideas
<Digit>well, thnx anyway, helped me understand the predicament a little better.
<Digit>besides making an attempt to reinstall guix entirely [(later, exhausted)], letting "error: cannot bind to socket `/var/guix/daemon-socket/socket': Address already in use" and the error upon guix package -i whatevers due to guix-daemon not running continuing to taunt me, is my plan.
<Digit>oops, i somehow misread "also, you ran guix-daemon as root, right?" as can run as non-root. o-O idk how my brain does these things. running as root now. this madness ends here. lol.
<numerobis>Hi guix! Beginner question: How do I select the version of a package to install using "guix package -i"? I saw that both version 1.64 and version 1.66 of Boost are present, but can't find the way to specify the one to install....
<civodul>numerobis: you can run "guix package -i firstname.lastname@example.org"
<davexunit>I actually just did a fresh install on a system that already had guix today
<davexunit>I noted which packages I had installed, wiped out all the guix directories, and reinstalled
<Digit>so, i might as well rm -rf /gnu. presumably, no harm in that, as far as i see... besides losing all that, n starting with a fresh slate. ... idk if there's a simple world file (like gentoo has) that wont quibble over specific versions n deps needing listed too, that i could extract from /gnu or /var/guix (already gone, oops) or /home/digit/whereverthatconfigisat?
<davexunit>I ran 'guix package --list-installed' and saved the output
<Digit>yeah, my old guix was already broken enough i'm not sure even --list-installed would have workd. n_n too late to find out now.
<davexunit>yeah if /var/guix is gone you won't be able to even look at the old manifest file
<Digit>also, since i already removed /var/guix, i facepalm in the general direction of: ls -lha .guix-profile \\lrwxrwxrwx 1 digit digit 46 Oct 7 2016 .guix-profile -> /var/guix/profiles/per-user/digit/guix-profile
