<swedebugia>fps, thanks for trying to help :) I posted to the list. We will see what comes out. I have a function in npm.scm which calls a proc: blacklisted? that returns #t if the package in question is in the blacklist.
<swedebugia>Now I want to regex match against the list so rollup matches rollup-plugin because they begin the same.
<rekado>enderby: it also depends on what it’s doing.
<rekado>enderby: if you end up compiling large amounts of build dependencies on slow hardware it can take quite a while.
<rekado>if that happens you should double check that substitutes are enabled and that you are fetching substitutes from berlin.guixsd.org as well (because that’s where substitutes for the “guix pull” derivations are built).
<enderby>rekado: thanks. I just ran it again and it finished in a normal amount of time, so idk what it was doing last time
<bavier>rekado: do you mind if I update the neovim package?
<rekado>bavier: I don’t mind. (I’m not using it myself.)
<jbw1111>Hi, I've lost my root password for my guixsd machine so I'm trying to get into single user mode, but I'm failing. Appending "single", "1" or "init=/bin/sh" to the linux line in grub doesn't seem to change anything, and still ends up with shepherd booting up normally and leaving me at the login prompt.
<jbw1111>What do I have to do to get into single user mode in Guixsd? Alternatively I could boot from a liveusb and chroot.
<fps>jbw1111: i'm not sure. but take a look into the shepherd manual
<vagrantc>civodul: the i386 builds running an amd64 kernel for debian's reproducible builds has found a few issues relating to embedding the kernel options, but maybe setting the personality fixes that
<vagrantc>any idea off-hand how much disk space linux-libre 4.19.5 takes on aarch64 ?
<vagrantc>i mean the build process, not the resulting /gnu/store/ ... thingy
<civodul>vagrantc: re kernel details in the build output, these are bugs in general for Guix
<civodul>i don't know how much disk space is needed for linux-libre
<brendyyn>Nix's full system tests, like running bittorrent tests seem super cool!
<civodul>wait, Guix system tests are super cool too ;-)
<brendyyn>It would be great to develop similar tests for guix, maybe even a sort of high level fuzz test, like specifying parameters and generating random virtual machines with various network configurations etc and defining some automated test
<baconicsynergy>I'm so proud of my laptop and software right now ;_; 100% RYF hardware, 100% free software. Full disk encryption with libreboot, bleeding edge software with parabola and reproducible builds with guix. so happy
<rekado>The cmake build system doesn’t install any libraries; worse, it doesn’t even build shared libraries at all.
<rekado>everything is built as objects that are then used to statically link useless executables.
<rekado>the cmake stuff is deprecated; going forward they will remove all cmake files and make it only work with bazer.
<ng0>maybe I'm approaching this the wrong(most complicated) way, for now. Is there a better way to process swf video files outside of a browser than to dissasemble them and work the host specific swf into your own fork of youtube-dl?
<fps>i.e. how much space savings would we win if we would push the binary distribution [e.g. via ipfs] to a lower level than nars.. i.e. distribute the nar contents on ipfs which would do the deduplication..
<rekado>ooh, nice: “The following grafts will be made” — I like it!
<civodul>you'll make it, i'm sure you'll make it! :-)
<civodul>and you'll make a lot of people happy, too
<rockandska>civodul: did you had the time to take a look at the need to have the possibility to read the manifest file from stdin and/or open an issue in case someone will have the time to take a look at it please ? :)
<rekado>rockandska: is there a bug report about this?
<roptat>we still have no idea how to localize the website, right?
<fps>hmm, it seems i drank the coolaid a bit too early.. downloading content from my cache via ipfs is abyssimally slow.. since i'm the only one requestiing the content and a single node is providing it it should boil down to a point to point connection
