<thomassgn>Hey! reading up on mcron syntax and I'm wondering about the timing/first argument to the job command: How do I make something run every 5 mins?
<thomassgn>I mean there's '(next-minute-from)' which will give me an execution I guess in 60 secs. But how do I make it reocur? Or would it reocur every minute, or every day at that minute? Seeing as it translates into unix time the last seems unlikely...
<thomassgn>derp, next pages has my questions as headings... :)
<jlicht>the (simplified) version is that anything that uses ungexp is meant to be written to a file
<thomassgn>jlicht: ah, ok. I so I trimmed it down to just run the (execl... expression, still have that error, but do I understand correctly that I should redirect the output to a port? e.g. stdin or a different file?
<thomassgn>I should try to read the gexps again, they are just so hard to understand.
<thomassgn>those pages are difficult, I fine with not getting an answer: why does '(execl #~(string-append #$upower "/bin") "upower" "-e")' complain about ungexp while: '(shell #~(string-append #$bash "/bin/bash"))' for my user in my guixsd config work? I don't get the difference (which is fine, I'll rub my head some more on the gexps).
<brendyn>Does anyone know of any tutorials for setting up emacs for email and synching mailing list archives somehow?
<snape>thomassgn: because your user config contains (guix gexp) maybe?
<jackhill>what's the recommended way to clean up old links in .config/guix ?
<gnoom>Hello, my 'guix pull' segfaults on my raspberry pi 3B+ with 1GB RAM. On the first run in complained a lot about heap allocations failing, and now it segfaults every time, probably when memory is full again. Is there a way to make 'guix pull' use less memory, or something else I can try?
<brendyn>gnoom: It's a known problem at least. I would have thought it would work within 1GiB though.
