<sneek>civodul, raghavgururajan says: nckx mbakke After removal of ungoogled-chromium from guix, is there a viable replacement that can be an alternative to icecat, by having a different rendering engine from icecat? I have seen some web pages performing differently between web-engines gecko and blink. :-)
<rndd>hi everyone. I use guixsd with gnome and I have some issue with sysmbols in gnome aps. Some words are , some icons just empty frames. I had this issue in nixos, and I fixed after installing some gnome packages. Does annybody know what I need to install using guix?
<leoprikler>at least on my machine, symbols displayed fine after refreshing it
<efraim>After changing the way rust works I really should work on combining the two rust importer parts into something that works with the new system :/
<vup>efraim: will the new rust stuff still use cargo to compile everything or actually compile dependent crates in a seperate step?
<efraim>vup: It'll still use cargo to compile everything. Rust doesn't have a good story when it comes to compiling intermediate crates so we're now just treating them as shared sources instead of shared libraries.
<efraim>well, compiling intermediate crates works, using those compiled crates takes planning ahead of time by upstream, and very few of them do it unless they have a project which combines together a few of their own parts
<vup>Yeah i know, but recompiling bigger rust programs takes quite long this way
<vup>Also for nix there is carnix so in theory it should be possible to replicate that in guix
<reepca>Hm, murmur (the mumble server) seems to fail to start, and logs this message: murmurd general protection fault ip:7ff811d672f1 sp:7ffc009d8670 error:0 in libQtNetwork.so.4.8.7[7ff811ca6000+ca000]
<Tirifto>Question: Where might Icecat need to get its fonts from? I'm trying to get Icecat installed with Guix to run inside Firejail on Parabola, and I got it to run, but it shows me tofu in place of letters.
<Tirifto>I previously had this issue when running Icecat normally, but installing fonts in Guix and running fontconfig (or whatever the command was) solved the issue, so I'm thinking Firejail might be restricting access to some places Guix-installed Icecats needs access to.
<nckx>Tirifto: Have you installed font-gnu-freefont-ttf into the same profile as IceCat (and run fc-cache -r)?
<nckx>That's the only common IceCat tofu problem+fix of which I'm aware.
<Tirifto>nckx: ‘guix package -I’ should tell me that, right?
<raghavgururajan>Something wrong with NetworkManager after upgrading system just now. 1) Even after turning off the WiFi, the connected icon appear on nm-applet (gnome). 2) I have configured to automatically connect to VPN via nm-connection-manager; but VPN does not connect/appear.
<leoprikler>So you are not connected via cable and also not connected via WiFi. However, it appears as if you are connected via WiFi and VPN does not connect.
<leoprikler>Would VPN connect if WiFi was enabled, or does it never work?
<raghavgururajan>leoprikler Yes, it appears as connected even though I turned off my WiFi. VPN is separate issue, when I turn wifi back on and connect to my home network, vpn is not automatically getting connected (as I configured it to do so in nm-connection-manager).
<raghavgururajan>leoprikler nckx Okay, so it seems like issues are with indications/appearance. All the follwowing happened after recent system upgrade. 1) When WiFi is off, it appears/shows to be connected on nm-applet. 2) When I turn back WiFi on and connected to home network, both WiFi and VPN gets connected in background (I configured to automatic vpn connection in nm-connection manager), but only WiFi is shown i
<raghavgururajan>n nm-applet as connected. I check VPN connection by testing at ipleak.net. 3) The whole VPN menu in nm-applet has disappeared.
<leoprikler>the older version should not be gc'd if you can still roll back to it
<raghavgururajan>I am using XMPP-IRC Bridge (Biboumi) Service provided by Disroot at irc.disroot.org. So I am messaging from Gajim.
<nckx>raghavgururajan: Depends on what you gc'd. ‘guix package -l’ will show previous user profile generations, if that's where you've installed nm-applet.
<raghavgururajan>leoprikler Ah I see. Let me check what commit my previous generation was.
<raghavgururajan>nckx Before I upgraded the system and user, I did 1) `guix package --delete-generations` && `guix gc --delete-generations` as user 2) `guix system delete-generations` && guix gc --delete-generations` as root.
<nckx>leoprikler: It wouldn't surprise me if IRC had a line length limit (say, 255) and relies on clients to split longer lines, leading to implementation-specific fun.
<raghavgururajan>nckx leoprikler Yessss!!! Bash history. I usually do not do just `guix pull`. I do `guix pull --commit=[...]`
*raghavgururajan is checking root profile's bash history to find out the commit.
<raghavgururajan>nckx leoprikler Gotcha! The old good generation was on commit "fd423e4". :-D
<nckx>raghavgururajan: …oh. Damn. That's long after I last touched network-manager-applet. There goes my hypothesis that I was somehow to blame (and an easy fix). I'll read your further debugging adventures later.
<frantellato>Hello Guix, I'm setting up grub for a dual boot. I was wondering: how can I find the filenames for the "linux" and "initrd" sections of a menu-entry? I have grub-efi as a bootloader but I can't find anything like "vmlinuz" in my /boot/efi.
<frantellato>Maybe I shoud point out that I'm doing all of this via the Guix configuration system.
<leoprikler>frantellato: you enter the respective values of the foreign system
<leoprikler>then you probably want to use the "device" field
<leoprikler>if e.g. your guix system is on /dev/sda1 and your debian on /dev/sdb1
<leoprikler>"device" would be the label or UUID of /dev/sdb1
<leoprikler>and then you have to look there for linux and initrd
<frantellato>So being my partition layout shared-boot -> guix-root -> shared-store -> debian-root -> swap -> shared-home, I should just set the UUID of the device field to debian-home's UUID and search in /dev/sda4 for vmlinuz and initrd right?
<frantellato> I think I did it http://paste.debian.net/1113394/ , the system is now reconfiguring. Also I have another question even if it's not that related. How often am i supposed to run "sudo guix pull" just once after installation or every now and then just as guix pull ? Does guix pull update even the system's guix?
<raghavgururajan>leoprikler fps I think we are going in circles. In simplest terms, `guix package -s` should give it's *raw* output. In this way, raw output can be piped with another program of *choice* for *desired outcome*.
<nckx>fps: Right, but that's as annoying as adding ‘| cat’ after guix. No environment variable or anything? (Setting PAGER=cat doesn't count 😉 )
<nckx>anon987321, fps: For package versions not ‘in Guix’, --with-source and other transformation options might get you most of the way there. ‘guix install foo@whatever’ might be a bit *too* magical and inviting bad practice. Dunno.
<nckx>It seems like the kind of bazooka so heavy that it can only be aimed at the foot.
