*vagrantc tries to avoid ranting about healthcare in the USA and only stifles it to this
<OriansJ>no need to rant; the reality is the healthcare in the USA is a dumpster fire with higher mortality rates than several third world countries. Where one is charged on average over $70 just to hold their own babies after child birth. Hence the expectation of higher wages (in the insane hope that money will help one avoid those problems)
<OriansJ>Heck the fact that American hospitals have 8 administrators for every 1 health care provider is enough to figure out why it costs so much more than everywhere else..
<brendyyn>for people on minimalist setups like i3, do you run a polkit authentication agent at all?
<tune>brendyyn: I used i3 for a long time and lately am on awesomewm. I don't believe I'm using a polkit authentication agent. I'm not really familiar with what one is
<brendyyn>ok its alrightt i just had issues with not being able to edit network manager connections that id created previously while on gnome but i fixed it by modifying the permissions= field in them
<vagrantc>with "guix pull --list-generations", it shows the added packages and new versions as of a while ago ... but it seems to take a fair amount of time to calculate that part ... is there a way to disable the version/new/changed packages?
<rekado_>sneek: later tell th-end you need to mae sure that the public key for ci.guix.info is authorized if you want to get substitutes from it.
<brendyyn>Blackbeard[m]: Marius's responses was that this kind of audit requirement is to strict. noone has actually found any proprietary components, and a genuine effort has gone in to looking for them and ungoogling this version of chromium, so it seems fair
<brendyyn>if someone finds something wrong, it can be patched out when the time comes just like any other package
<brendyyn>(from memory, that's roughly what was said)
<enderby>hi guix, i'm wondering if it's possible to do some kind of "guix package -u" command that will only show me packages that have version upgrades available. right now it spits out every package, even if the version remains the same.
<enderby>ie. would not show "jack 0.125.0 → 0.125.0", but would show "gnuplot 5.2.4 → 5.2.6"
<enderby>or alternatively, should i be using just "guix package -u" to upgrade all packages, instead of specifying just the ones i want (usually just the ones with version upgrades)?
<roptat>rekado_, the reason why the machine at my place is not accessible is because my isp changed my IP. The new ip is 126.96.36.199 and it should be pointed to by rennes.lepiller.eu
<bavier>enderby: packages can have important updates even if their versions are not upgraded
<bavier>enderby: You could also visually filter out the ones you're not interested in, e.g.: guix package --dry-run -u 2>&1 | sed '/\([^ ]\+\) → \1/d'
<rvgn>Hello All! Can anyone package Zotero (https://www.zotero.org/) into Guix? It is a powerful reference management software that is being used in academia, literature and journalism. This packaging will be useful for many users. Kindly consider. Please and Thank you!
<bavier>oh, zotero is nodejs package... could turn into js hell pretty quickly
<joshuaBPMan>Hello, I'm trying to install guix system. But my macbook 5,1 does not recognize the guix install usb stick. I've installed debian onto the macbook. So the macbook has grub. Now, I am trying to install guix system. Basically I am trying to boot the guix install media, via the grub command line.
<amz3>Blackbeard[m]: sorry for the out-of-the-blue question, do you use tor to access guix mirrors?
<civodul>amz3: that's not quite possible (not easily at least)
<amz3>I am asking because I am *considering* *again* to work on gnunet integration and I would like to know if there is still some interest from guix community to have that. Since now it seems like the new server + cdn fix most issues
