<pkill9>i have a user that isn't added to the audio group, yet it can recieve audio input through pulseaudio and record it in audacity, how do i fix this?
<noobly>hello, I'm trying to install alongside an existing gnu/linux OS. I'm not sure how to configure grub to do this though, so getting my config.scm right is where I'm stuck. i don't want to install over my existing grub and block myself out or anything
<NOOBLY>I am trying to boot guixSD alongside an existing gnu/linux distribution and I'm not sure how to express this in my config.scm. If someone wouldn't mind walking me through this portion of the install, I'd really appreciate it.
<bavier>NOOBLY: see the section of the manual named "Bootloader Configuration"
<bavier>which contains an example of providing bootloader menu entries for other systems
<noobly>bavier: I have read it forward and back now, along with any mailing list info I could scrounge up. I'm still paranoid about ruining my other install
<bavier>noobly: understood. I can't offer any first-hand experience, but maybe others can
<noobly>bavier: thanks for the kindness, I suppose the worst that can happen is my boot configuration for the other OS getting fried, which isn't too hard to fix I guess
<demotri>I have a patch for arc-theme, a GNOME-theme. How can i test it?
<civodul>demotri: maybe you can add arc-theme to desktop.tmpl, "guix system vm" it, and try to change themes in the GNOME UI in the VM?
<demotri>civodul: You mean under "packages" of the "operating-system" record? Hm, I have a VM which I guix-system-reconfigured in that way but I can't see the theme in the gnome-tweak-tool. Have I done a mistake or do I have to register it somehow? I will double-check.
<demotri>Why are there so many evaluations in parallel on Hydra? Wouldn't it make more sense to stop older evaluations?
<brendyyn>I wonder if we could make a Friend to Friend configuration for ipfs instead of open Peer to Peer. that way people could choose to only download from a list of hosts. If it is unlimited then it runs the risk of allowing people to spy on what software a person is downloading like what can be done with bittorrent
<efraim>fps: from guix weather I got: .0% substitutes available (2 out of 9,188)
<civodul>demotri: indeed, i'm trying again to cancel old builds
<civodul>hmm i just realized that the installer doesn't actually install anything yet
<fps>efraim: what precisely does guix weather check?
<civodul>rekado: i guess we should send a note on info-guix about mirror.*, thoughts?
<pkill9>is anyone here knowledgeable on linux permissions? My user account can read/write this file even though they're not on the 'audio' group: crw-rw----+ 1 root audio 116, 5 Nov 28 20:01 /dev/snd/controlC1
<OriansJ>civodul: I would be heavily suprised if any modern infrastructure doesn't have a terminal server or (Intel Management/AMD PSP) administration proxy server. Now if you'll get access is an entirely different matter...
<civodul>roptat: i hope Benno won't be mad at me ;-)
<vagrantc>any reason why GUIX_LOCPATH doesn't end up in .guix-profile/etc/profile ?
<catonano>madage: are you bumble's rumple on Mastodon ?
<vagrantc>so, sometimes when i do "guix build ..." it just shows me a small number of lines for each item it's building, and sometimes it spits out the whole output of the build log as it's building ... what controls that?
