<bavier>ArneBab: I assume there's some more output? that message usually means there's an issue with library or executable RUNPATHS, e.g. that the needed shared libraries cannot be found in the embedded RUNPATH
<bavier>how to fix it would depend on the particular issue

<civodul>rendaw: indeed, root is created with an empty password, and you're supposed to change that after installation :-)
<civodul>the 'password' field is ignored for root?
<rendaw>civodul: Yeah... the account-service has a check for uid 0 and uses creates a hardcoded shadow file with an empty password for root - none of the fields are consulted
<rendaw>That's what I was afraid of :(. The issue is that with disk-image the system is read only so you _can't_ change the root password after the system's been created (at least, without a lot of ugly hacking)
<rendaw>AFAICT the "activation service" execution order isn't clearly defined, so if I create a "change root password" activation all I can do is hope that it will run immediately after the "create shadow file" activation
<civodul>rendaw: if you add your own root account explicitly, i believe you can choose whatever initial password you want
<brendyyn>I also have a project idea. I want to implement multihash for guile, and then extend it to generate strategies for calculating multiple hashes by only reading files once and piping them. for example you could say you want the ipfs hash, guix hash, and some other software archive hash of a git repo simultaneously. it could be useful for linking together different P2P methods of sharing software and verifying
<brendyyn>the different hashes represent the same files
<rekado>nixo_: to me this looks like disk corruption. Where does that long string of NULL come from?
<nixo_>rekado: no idea. I feared the same but it's btrfs I hoped to receive some checksome warning somewhere
<nixo_>but I have a sata error (failed command: WRITE FPDMA QUEUED)
<kmicu>nixo_: could you check that disk’s health with btrfs scrub or hdparm?
<rvgn>For using modem-manager, mentioning %desktop-services under operating-system services is enough? or should I also mention modem-manager-service-type??
<wednesday>no modem-manager-service is not in %desktop-services, but do you actually need it? Are you using a dialup connection? heh
<nixo_>civodul: sorry to bother again, but do you know if anybody is interested in finding a way on how to pack julia pacakges in guix? (as far as I know, there are serious determinism problems in julia: https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/issues/25900 , but maybe we find a workaround)
<nixo_>kmicu: after a garbage collection guix pull worked .-. I'm a bit confused but happy
***richi238 is now known as richi235
<civodul>sneek_: later tell vagrantc what if Guix 1.0 had its official Debian package? :-)
<nckx>Blackbeard[m]: You're not the first to ask. The folks who could plausibly sanction a ‘Guix wiki’ aren't big fans of wikis (I tend to agree but that matters not), but that doesn't stop anyone from creating their own ☺
<nckx>(I don't think blog posts are better than wiki entries, but we do have the former.)
<nckx>Anyway, I seem to have made the impression that I care strongly (or weakly) about wiki's or none, which I don't. Most wikis turn to trash, but some don't, and the Arch wiki is a reasonable (if overhyped) example.
<nckx>If Guix were to get one, more power to the wiki editors ☺
<Blackbeard[m]>but a blogpost lacks the ability to look for other people thoughts
<nckx>Blackbeard[m]: I'm not arguing against wikis. But the current options are a) a blog post on the Guix Web site or b) host your own wiki. A popular & well-run b) would be a far more powerful argument than anything anyway.
<nckx>I've read at least 6 ‘hey Guix should have a wiki! I need a place to post a few notes.’ posts over the years, but nobody who's *created* and is willing to maintain one. If the Guix maintainers are worried that a wiki would turn into an unmaintained wasteland after 4 pages, I can't blame 'em.
