<rvgn>Dynamicmetaflow: Woah! If they use guix instead of debian, it's gonna be even better. Imagine you wanna have mutiple freedom boxes and all you need is one config file.
<Dynamicmetaflow>rvgn: Yes, my thoughts exactly. There are other projects too like yunohost that do what's similar to freedombox but also it's based on debian. I'm interested in exploring this and other ideas I have and was wondering if anyone has done this beforehand
<dwagenk[m]1>Rvgn: it is definitely possible to play video in a Xserver/wayland free system. I think it's gstreamer, but I moght be mixing it up with a different programm. It works either directly on a framebuffer device or the GPU. I've seen it being used to display fancy boot animations on embedded linux devices.
<apteryx>rvgn: ah, sorry, I failed at understanding your requirements (no X)
<davidl>Hi, I have a repository which I want to use both as a package channel and as a repo for the program itself. Is it possible to define something like .guix-channel-ignore that can be used to exclude scheme-files or dirs from being evaluated by guix pull?
<janneke>davidl: yes, .guix-channel takes a (directory "somedir") slot now
<vagrantc>minall: biggest thing missing is guile-gnutls ...
<vagrantc>minall: several dependencies are stuck in NEW review
<rvgn>tqbl: guix daemon runs as "that" user. So if you run as non-root user, then it runs as non-user.
<Dynamicmetaflow>rvgn: Thanks, I looked into guix deploy yesterday and it's great. I was looking into foreman today and it's interface and features I found it interesting and was wondering how both could be combined
<Dynamicmetaflow>tqbl: Ah, thanks for some reason I haven't look at that specific document in the past when browsing that repository. I don't have experience using proot, I hope someone else in this channel is able to help you out.
<vagrantc>roptat: yeah, that's the spur of the moment idea :)
<civodul>roptat, vagrantc: that could be implemented using 'checkinstall'
<minall>I mean, that with the .deb package, it generates a package.scm for example, and the program will point out: 'oh i couldn't find the download page, or the dependencies' and the user would add it manually by editing the file, and then test it, it would be easier I think
<vagrantc>ah, like a "guix import debian" ... might be hard to pull off
<rekado>g_bor[m]: I’m building jikes, jamvm-1-bootstrap, and classpath-bootstrap with glibc-2.28 now
<roptat>on a java-related note, I'm now trying another approach at getting to the maven-build-system: instead of building dependencies from bottom-up, I'm trying to build the maven-build-system and build one package from source and binary dependencies downloaded from the maven central
<lispmacs>pkill9_: can I install that into my user profile or do I need to edit config.scm?
<lispmacs>does package manager allow me to start a second install while the first one is still building? I've wanted to install some small packages but have been waiting the last frew days for ungoogled-chromium to finish
<mbakke>lispmacs: It is safe to run multiple Guix commands at once, but they will each create a new profile generation, which might be confusing.
<Dynamicmetaflow>mbakke: lol understandable, I'm interested in using Guix + Ganetti and maybe creating a web interface using artanis as a wrap around to everything. Looking to use to self-host FOSS applications and deliver them to non-profit organizations who care about security and against surveillance etc
<mbakke>lispmacs: I think the latest command to finish will "undo" the generations created meanwhile :/
<mbakke>the packages will be in your store, of course, but you need to install them again..
<Dynamicmetaflow>mbakke: I would be intersted! I think I want to work up to packaging Ganeti, I need practice.
<nckx>rvgn: It's a piece of software, often run on a separate, hosted server, that sits ‘between’ your IRC client and the IRC server(s). It can log everything (incidentally, this is how the logs.guix.gnu.org hack is done), provide scrollback when your client logs in (so I can see if somebody mentioned me or sent me a msg even when I'm disconnected), and many other things.
<nckx>I use ZNC. It's in Guix, but I haven't cleaned up & pushed the service I use.
<rvgn>nckx Just read about ZNC. It same as quassel
<bandali>nckx, would appreciate it if you or rekado would post your znc service :)
<nckx>rvgn: With the difference noted above, that ZNC speaks IRC to the client, Quassel last I checked did not. It's an important difference but if it doesn't matter to you Quassel is probably ‘nicer’.
<rvgn>nckx Hmm. You could just send that. Could be your opinion.
<Minall>couldn't separate from it, but is there a page that explains how far can you go on emacs, for example
<biotim>I like the keybindings in emacs, and the customizability is great. I can configure it to really maximize the amount of screen real estate for text. I use it with magit, org-mode, helm, ESS, cider
<rekado>Minall: as far as you want, really. You can replace your window manager, embed a graphical web browser, view PDFs…
*rvgn got reminded of his old hyperbola days, despite the tone in that email.
*nckx sent a minimal response. The question's genuine, although I fear the answer won't be.
<rvgn>nckx I have no idea where and how to respond to that.
*nckx now sees the reply to rekado and wishes they hadn't, damn.
