<apteryx>has someone ever seen this: in `guix copy': guix copy: error: failed to connect to `#<input-output: channel (open) 2466ac0>': Protocol error
<apteryx>cbaines had answered lfam about the same question with: does running guile directly over SSH work, e.g. ssh example.com guile
<apteryx>so apparently Guile needs to be in the path of the remote
<mfzap>hi all, has anyone installed gnucash? It's failing tests for me, a bunch of timezone and date manipulation tests that use the boost library (according to a C++ comment) fail... not sure how to poke it to install
<verisimilitude>Also, I now recall that mailing list issue involved Clozure, not Emacs.
<verisimilitude>There was, however, a fellow collecting some information regarding this a ways back.
<munen>Hello everyone. After reading up and looking at a lot of videos, I'm intrigued by Guix! I'm a long time Debian user, but face constantly 'mutable state' issues when doing DevOps that I solved in my own programs long ago by employing functional programming (Clojure and such). That's why I finally installed Guix (on a foreign platform, my Debian notebook). It took about 16h to compile everything to get to the point where I can use the
<munen>command prompt which makes me quite happy(; From this point on, I'd like to go with substitutes to increase the feedback loop while I'm still learning. However, I'm getting "substitute: guix substitute: warning: while fetching 'https://mirror.guixsd.org/nix-cache-info': 504 ("Gateway Time-out")" and all the mirros I'm looking at show the same. Is that a real nginx issue the servers are currently facing or am I missing configuration
<munen>somewhere? Thanks a lot for your help in advance and for working/using Guix!
<marusich>I see you're installing it for the first time.
<marusich>If you're using a release image, it shouldn't be failing... But since it is, there are probably a few things you can try. 1) Try running "guix pull" to get the latest version of Guix, before running "guix system init". This might take a long time, depending on how fast your system is and whether or not substitutes are available. I'd expect it to take hours.
<reed_>If it's relevant, I'm using the config for the minimal desktop environment (the one with i3). I've only made the minimal modifications to make it compatible with my system (i.e. changed /dev/sdX to /dev/sda, etc..)
<marusich>2) Share the build failures here or on the mailing list, so maybe somebody can help diagnose the issue.
<marusich>Did you add software like packages or services?
<reed_>Okay, I will try to run "guix pull" and then try again, and report back.
