<nckx>Not here, and I'm spinning too many plates to find out what happens when I stop it.
<vixus>well here we go, building another disk-image...
<apteryx_>vagrantc: emacs' main problem is not slowness of its dumb or ansi terminal emulator, but rather that it chokes at fontlocking (highlighting) super long lines (it really comes down to a crawl, making that term unusable when wanting to scroll).
<apteryx_>I wish I could fix that bug, it'd make my life much more enjoyable.
<brendyyn>How does one configure services with guix that require cryptographic keys. If one were to refer to them in the operating system, the keys would then end up in the guix store which seems very much not good
<civodul>vixus: you should use --file-system-type=iso9660, that's how we build the image that's published
<vixus>civodul: yeah, nckx told me about that yesterday. it's not mentioned in the official(?) manual though
<kmicu>brendyyn: We could also use Guix for them but inform users about the issue and its tradeoffs. E.g. I don’t mind (under my threat model) storing tinc secrets in my guix store so such service would be still useful for users like me.
<rvgn>* the example I was referring to is "desktop setup without full-blown DE"
<efraim>civodul: currently on vacation, still need to finish it and make it actually work :p
<kmicu>rvgn: If you are after Wayland then i3/Sway is a way to go today and we already have some Guix folks using Sway here.
<efraim>I don't think enlightenment-Wayland is ready on Guix
<rvgn>kmicu That's nice. Do they provide basic menu and options?
<kmicu>rvgn: that's a desktop environment’s job. If you don’t want to use XFCE or similar then you need to install and configure such things manually. A window manager is not a replacement for a desktop environment; generally its job is arranging rectangles (windows) and nothing more.
<rvgn>kmicu Ah I see. Then, I am gonna give enlightenment a spin. Their design philosophy seems interesting.
<nckx>Turns out (I checked my nckx/bootstrap script) that I use only ‘guix environment --pure guix’ to bootstrap it. So the guix package correctly specifies all its dependencies. The packages in my profile are only needed to run it with ./pre-inst-env later.
