<rekado_>for example, previously we would install the documentation of at-spi2-core into a separate output. With the meson build system they no longer offer a knob to override the location, so I need to patch some files and then add a build phase to move the documentation to its own output.
<nixd>Hello. Has anyone ever had a guix system initerror like this?: "guix system: error: No such file or directory: "/mnt/gnu/store/kcm128bw8sykn57qxbhfbjslmmssc1lc-fuse-2.9.7"? The exact command I ran was: guix system init /mnt/etc/config.scm /mnt
<mbakke>nixd: Did you run `herd start cow-store /mnt` before running the init command?
<civodul>i was speaking with a former Arch user yesterday who shares this sentiment
<jonsger1>ng0: things get funny when you package guix for other package managers :P
<ng0>I've been thinking about ways to conveniently solve nonexistent paths. possibly services with chroots, but I haven't given it much time yet
<ng0>like you can almost run nix on guixsd, but you get some errors, depending on the kind of applications. some leading to non-functional applications. it's not that we would want to empower this, so it's just me tinkering about this.
<brettgilio>jonsger1, I use Guix on Parabola. Great package manager to compliment pacman
<ng0>fyi I figured out much too late that I don't need my openSUSE vm to compensate for our lack of eclipse IDE :)
<civodul>brettgilio: to compliment pacman or to complement it? :-)
<brettgilio>civodul, How have I gone all of my life, part of a PhD, and almost done with medical school before I realized that compliment=/=complement.
<lfam>I wonder if call-with-temporary-directory is working as intended? The docstring says "close the directory and delete it when leaving the dynamic extent of this call". However, it uses rmdir, whose documentation says "Remove the existing directory named by path. The directory must be empty for this to succeed."
<lfam>The point being that the temporary directory would not be deleted unless it was emptied first
<pkill9_>i don't know how kernels/init systems work, so excuse me if this is an ignorant quesiton, but is there a way to set a hard limit on the amount of CPU/RAM a process uses? Icecat just froze up my system and after slugging through the lag i was able to kill it
<lfam>pkill9_: Check out ulimit, which is typically available as a shell builtin
<lfam>You might also look into cgroups. Although I don't think we really make use of them in GuixSD, there is some nice integration in systemd
