<OriansJ>Days like this, make me wish I knew more people who were critical about Microprocessor Instruction sets.
<ison111>Sorry, how do I get "guix lint" to recognize my package? It can't find it.
<mange>Just to check I understand the situation: you've cloned the Guix git repository, and added a new package, but "guix lint" isn't working on it? Do other commands like "guix build" work for it?
<ison111>No, I didn't clone it. I guess that's the problem.
<mange>Ah, okay. Is your package in a file on GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH?
<mange>If you can build it with "guix build $PACKAGE_NAME" then I would expect it to work with guix lint. If you have to use something like "guix build -f $PACKAGE_FILE" then I don't think lint will work.
<mange>civodul: I ran into an interesting problem trying to test my fixes to the Shepherd on my real system. Apparently using the Shepherd with commit 2756a92 leads to GuixSD not being able to start.
<mange>I think the issue is to do with udev and shepherd constantly trying to respawn it, because I get lots of errors about being unable to create things in /dev because they already exist.
<rozenglass>I'm in the install image, I made some changes to the operating-system definition that I want to initialize after I ran `guix init', do I have to run `guix init' everytime? or is there an equivalent of `reconfigure' that I can use? `reconfigure' doesn't accept a path to where the OS is as far as I see.
<rozenglass>init takes a long time re-copying things on every run. I just want to get to the grub install stage which it runs after copying.
<mange>I don't know of an alternative to init, unfortunately. To use reconfigure you'd have to boot into the installed system, which I assume you can't do if your problem is with grub.
<janneke>civodul: i made a next iteration on wip-bootstrap; i removed the shadow 00/01 tree and moved all mesboot packages into commencement.scm and hooked it up to the x86 guix bootstrap. ./pre-inst-env guix build --system=i686-linux gcc-mesboot runs fine...however in my x86 VM, guix hangs -- i think i created a circular dependency somewhere.
<rozenglass>Anyways, I think I might have solved the grub thing, I'll reboot and see what happens. Thanks again.
<mange>civodul: I've got to go now, but I'm going to revert the problematic commit. I'll try to look into it some more later, but I don't really understand what's going on at all.
