<mange>Yeah, I'm glad you figured it out, too! I had wondered whether it was related to the system* definitions, and so I replaced the system* reference in the service with (@ (guile) system*), but I don't think that fixed it. I haven't actually checked that you fix works for me, but I'll try it out tonight.
<mange>I understand the rationale, but I think having the provider declare "this function is equivalent to a core function" will invariably have edge cases, and if that import happens silently (rather than the importing module requesting it) then it can happen accidentally.
<nly>For example I want to see what `define-module` and `#:use-module` do in (define-module (gnu packages hello) #:use-module (guix packages))
<nick-12398121231>Hi everyone, I am trying to extract a rar archive, but I can't find the relevant utility or tool to do so, I believe the normal approach for other distros is to use unrar, but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone have any suggestions?
<nick-12398121231>Yeah I have tried using 7zip but it does not work and rar does not appear in the list of supported filetypes output by "7z i". I have also tried installing file-roller (aka gnome archive-manager?) but that throws an error that is supposedly fixed by installing unrar.
<civodul>nick-12398121231: i believe the problem is that there are no maintained free implementations of "unrar" (there used to be one but it's unmaintained and in rather bad shape, IIRC)
<reepca>So I just recently rebooted this system and now there's this really weird behavior where moving the mouse accelerates the cursor instead of just moving it. So I can leave the mouse perfectly still and the cursor keeps flying across the screen.
<ng0>is rb-general@ the list where we share reproducibility patches with other OS'? upstream probably rejected my patch as they work on the next major version (and new codebase) of the software already.
<katco>if i need to send a revision to a patch, do i send a diff of master -> change, or a diff of patch N-1 -> patch?
<janneke>does this guix offload test failure sound familiar? guix offload: error: build failed: implementation cannot deal with > 32-bit integers
<rekado>It would be good if the intern prepared something like a Makefile or an executable script that would render videos from a subtitle file, an (optionally translated) audio track, and a slide show.
<rekado>script with timing data sounds a lot like a regular old subtitle file, actually
<rekado>for the videos I thought that it might be useful to get inspiration from emacsrocks.com
<rekado>these are very short demos of neat things that one would otherwise not know about.
<rekado>our videos should not be narrated screencasts like that, but I think it’s nice to have videos that focus on just one thing.
<bavier`>trying to create a "guile2.0-gcrypt" package, notice that "package-for-guile-2.0" is not exported from (gnu packages guile), no problem, just define-public, nope, circular module dependencies...
<bavier`>ugh, and trying to define it anywhere else also leads to "unbound variable" errors
<roptat>is there a procedure to remove a character from a string? I want "7.06" -> "706"
<bavier`>roptat: maybe not the best, but works: (string-join (string-split "7.06" #\.) "")
<mbakke>divansantana: I think the actual error message was lost in that paste.
