<vagrantc>in my experience, it also showed more information to the user, rather than just a white screen that flashes by in 3 seconds, it actually displays the text for the various key-combinations that do things
<emacsomancer>I find VLC doesn't perform nearly as well as mpv (and I presume you have as well), but I've occasionally used it for streaming.
<nckx>Yup. I'm used to extremely low-end laptops that can't afford VLC. I just got one that probably can. Strange new world.
<emacsomancer>even on high end machines, I find that VLC isn't as good as mpv. Sometimes it stutters; and skipping in videos works much better in mpv. Plus, I think mpv's (admittedly minimal) interface is slick.
<tortoise>how does guix package -i work on files that don't evaluate to the package in question? whenever I write my own and do guix package -f file.scm or guix build I need to end a package file with it's name so that the program evaluates to the package instead of just having a definition
<tortoise>That might be unclear I'm not sure. I want to define my own packages that only have the package definitions, but guix package -f only seems to work if I end the file by evaluating the package I need.
<abcdw>I have %base-desktop-service and on each boot on first tty I see `New session cNNN of user gdm. Removed session cNNN.` for 5 hundred times. and nothing happens after that. I can login, start sway and so on. But those lines are very annoying. Why they appears?
<roptat>"add write for user, to prevent a failure in the install phase"
<roptat>the reason for the failure is that in the case of a git checkout, the files are directly in the store, so they are read-only. in the case of a tarball, the tarball is read-only but uncompressed files have write permission
<roptat>in my case, that lead to the install phase failing with the same message as yours, and as you're also using a git checkout, it might be the same reason
<katco>i was actually watching the fosdem talk about matrix, and the goal of the matrix team is to actually get rid of matrix.org as federation improves. i don't think they have a desire to admin their own instance -- at least not one this large
