<ray__>I guess I'll let it go. It should only happen once, anyway
<very>I have a GuixSD machine without an internet connection. My other machines don't have Guix.
<very>What's the recommended way to download a package and install it in a setup like this?
<apteryx`>very: it should be possible to download the binary archives from an official server, say, mirror.hydra.gnu.org, and install them using guix archive --import some-package.nar
<very>I'll try that. I appreciate your help, apteryx`.
<apteryx`>I've never attempted this and I doubt it'll be fun to hunt manually all the dependency; I'd recommend installing guix on one of your network enabled machine and do a 'guix archive --export some-package'
<taylan>hmm, the urls aren't part of the key file so I guess the information is not available
<james-d-lisper>Hi guys, probably a rookie mistake but I have just done a "guix pull" on my machine, and now "guix system" does not seem to work, when I run "guix system <command>", I get told that "guix: system: command not found". Does anyone know where I went wrong?
<james-d-lisper>for example "guix system reconfigure" gives the same output: "guix: system: command not found"
<brendyn>james-d-lisper: This is a common problem. I forget the solution, I think you may have to run guix pull again
<james-d-lisper>Unfortunatly the problem persists. "guix pull" is now telling me that there is "nothing to be done" after multiple runs and multiple reboots. I am at a loss. should I reinstall from live-usb?
<rekado_>james-d-lisper: are you using the new Guix that has been placed in ~/.config/guix/current/bin?
<rekado_>james-d-lisper: excellent! “guix pull” does end with a note that asks you to add that directory to the beginning of PATH, but it’s easy to miss this as it prints so many other things that are not of interest.
<james-d-lisper>Yes, and i thought i had done what it said there, but i probably messed that up. any way all is well now, Thankyou :D
<znavko>thanks. I aim to disable NetworkManager and use wpa_supplicant. But have problems. I do not know how disable nmtui that I have connected with.
<wigust->znavko: nmtui is not a service to disable it
<wigust->znavko: if you want to disable network-manager then you probably want to do it by changing %desktop-services in your system configuration ‘config.scm’. Otherwise network-manager will spawn after reboot. Also nmtui will not be available after removing network-manager from services in config.scm
<pkill9>i'm not sure, but you may just be able to run `sudo herd disable network-manager` to disable it
<ray__>The full story here is that I'd like to have a procedure wrap-program-in-profile which takes a program and a profile and wraps the program a la wrap-program, but instead of specifying the paths manually, wraps the program in the profile
<ray__>So I wanted that procedure to go in guix build profiles
<ray__>Since that's where all of the profile information lives. It can't live in guix build utils I think, since guix build profiles imports guix build utils
<snape>I mean, it's a matter of understanding how xmonad works, you probably know better than me about it
<ray__>That seems doable I suppose. One other comment on guix while I'm here: right now if a user installs a compiler, e.g. gcc, although ghc has the same problem, it's unusable since the paths aren't set up
<ray__>so is it worthwhile to wrap gcc in a similar way to have LIBRARY_PATH automatically set up when it's run?
<ray__>Or is it a deliberate decision to have it not work out of the box?
<ray__>Actually, this is directly related, since I'm wondering whether it's better to wrap ghc, or to wrap xmonad
