<Tirifto>quiliro: Tiu funkcio utilas por sekurigi la tutan sistemon. Se aplikajho povas aliri nur tion, kion ghi bezonas por funkcii, ghi ne povas multe malutili al via sistemo, se ghi enhavus misan au malican funkcion.
<Tirifto>Mi kredas, ke IceCat ne estas malica aplikajho, sed mi ankau legis, ke retaj foliumiloj estas plej facile vundeblaj.
<nexgen>Just wondering is there any sense to have GUIX on OpenBSD
<nexgen>Would GUIX break the whole security intentions of OBSD if used on it?
<dftxbs3e>nexgen: Ask OpenBSD devs but GNU Guix does not in itself pose a risk, if anything it would be that OpenBSD packages are audited very carefully while GNU Guix packages do not receive the same amount of security auditing.
<u0_a134>but boot need kernel module to mount root
<rekado>u0_a134: you add it to the operating system configuration file and reconfigure.
<rekado>davexunit: that’s great! I’m glad this worked for you.
<reepca>I notice that emacs-magit is still getting stuck on anything that prompts for a password for SSH access. It's been like that for several months now - anyone else noticed, and if so, how are you working around it?
<rekado>I don’t see that, perhaps due to configuration
<reepca>For example, when I use magit to run 'git fetch origin' from my guix checkout, I get "Enter passphrase for key '/home/reepca/.ssh/id_rsa': " in my magit-process buffer
<numerobis>Hi guix. It's me again with another newbie question. I can't seem to 'guix pull' on my new guix install because the derivation of python-minimal-wrapper fails, see here: http://paste.debian.net/1095137. For some reason, every 'guix package -i' command also tries to build this derivation first (any idea why?), so I can't install any other packge to make debugging easier (such as vim or tmux). Many thanks
<str1ngs>Minall I think guix should mount it. but I have had to manually mount it in the past before init
<Minall>Guix mounted it automatically, I touched it lol
<Minall>but it was because I wanted to modify my config.scm after installing, but you can't do that on the graphical right?
<str1ngs>also just one nitpick it is safter to mount to /mnt/guix then /mnt . this is maybe less of an issue for installer. but for running systems you can globber /mnt easily by mounting things there
<Minall>It would be awesome if the config.scm, as it is presented, there would be an option to modify it, so I can have a more working pc... for example, if I don't add a different kernel since the latest kernel freezes my pc
<str1ngs>Minall umm if you have the config.scm you can re configure after the fact yes
<Minall>But I had to go to terminal mode to modify it, Why not add it on the graphical mode? would be awesome
<str1ngs>the graphical installer is meant for people completely new to guix and scheme
<Minall>str1ngs: Yes, the graphical installer is quite good, but in case that I know what configuration I want, means, I'm not totally new...
<str1ngs>it's intended to get a system up and running. I don't see many people needing the graphical installer once they have a working config.scm
<Minall>I have to configure it manually... get out of graphical mode I mena
<Minall>str1ngs: Right, for example, I installed guix in another PC I have here, but it freezes on graphical mode, since the newer kernel gives me problems with my laptop and the PC
<Minall>What should I do then? I'm planning on after install guix here on my laptop, do a guix system init again in the PC but with the kernel 4.9, which works for me
<Minall>Btw str1ngs, is there a way to reconfigure without re-installing grub? I had a problem before that grub was badly installed, and I can only see my newly reconfigure, which had the kernel that froze my pc, so I couldn't see my before reconfigure which worked since It had an older kernel... So basically my system totally broke, I got frustrared since guix is almost unbreakable lol
<Minall>I don't know, maybe not reinstall grub, but update it?
<str1ngs>I don't think so because guix is functional. and it hardcodes system profile paths so you can rollback
<Minall>What does hardcodes system profiles means? sorry for my ignorance
<str1ngs>when you reconfigure your system it creates a new system profile. so that you can go back to a previous profile should something not work.
<Minall>Well, I have saw two times that the bootloader is poorly installed and only shows me the newer reconfigure, if the newer reconfigure doesn't work for any reason, like my kernel problem, there's no way I know to roll back
<Minall>When grub is badly installed, the two times I saw it, it doesn't have the guix background, but bad resolution and blue colors
<str1ngs>you can slect the opther option from the grub menu. to use previous working profile
<str1ngs>though I forget the name of the grub menu item
<Minall>str1ngs: When grub is badly installed, when It doesn't have the guix background and all, it only lists one profile, the latter one, so is not possible to roll-back... when grub is normally installed, I have no problems...
<Minall>I'll come back later!, I'll reboot into my new system
<Minall>I'm having a similar problem with guix, with different computers...
<Minall>The two of them have problems with GDM, more specifically, it starts the gdm session and stops it, this after reaching the xorg limit, after this I can't access xorg, and I have to use the terminal mode (I'm on it right now btw)
<Minall>Because of this, I changed from GDM to Slim, but the session freezes and I'm unable to use the pc, I could access the terminal mode using SysRq
<Minall>I think is the kernel, but since I can only change from the latest kernel from the 4.9 version of the kernel (the other ones aren't defined), I'm thinking, maybe is something else, since the problem seems to be on different computers..s.
