<dootnoot>Huh... qutebrowser hasn't given me any warnings before but now it gives me a warning and says that qtwebengine isn't avalable and that i can use webkit but that it isn't safe
<dootnoot>apparently qtwebkit has't had any security updates since 2017
<str1ngs>that's probably because its deprecated in favor of qtwebengine
<dootnoot>ok. i can live with epiphany for the time being i guess :p
<NieDzejkob>What is the typical time for a package to be merged after LGTM? I just noticed that rcm, which is one of the programs I was going to package, is available as a patch on the mailing list (ok'd by brettgilio on Dec 10th, a bit over 2 weeks ago)
<leoprikler>Depends on the type of LGTM. If it's LGTM with additional qualifiers and you have at least one "could you please update" it's on you to actually change the patch before it lands on upstream.
<leoprikler>If it's just LGTM, it should land in the corresponding branch (master, staging or core-updates depending on the number of rebuilt packages).
***ScaredySquirrel is now known as FurryTails
<FurryTails>can I have 40 PS4 for my plastic companion cube?
<FurryTails>it's growing hungry I forgot to feed it and my chaos emerald
<leoprikler>Looking at this specific instance, it would probably already be on master. However, given that Brett was also busy with other packages, it appears to have been forgotten. I'm not sure what the best kind of action would be here.
<leoprikler>Tails, this is not a role-playing IRC, you probably have the wrong tab open.
<FurryTails>ok I'm mad at one thing it's the slowness of my internet connection to install Guix
<fishinthecalcula>from the Guix website but both fail right after copying everything under "/mnt", in the process of installing grub. Does anyone have a clue about which Guix version should I use? Or do you know some way to generate the correct image with "guix system disk-image"? Thanks a lot
<NieDzejkob>If you got to the point of copying to /mnt and installing the bootloader, you're using the correct image
<NieDzejkob>Is there something like guix build --keep-failed that keeps the build tree on success too?
<fishinthecalcula>I do not have the error messae around because last I tried was yesterday, but it always fails while installing grub. Also I was using the graphical installer so could it be some bug with the partition schema generated?
<cnmne>I'm trying to set up a static ip on my box and someone helped me to get closer to fixing that but I'm clearly overlapping something in my config.scm and I'm not sure how, or even where to look for avoiding that. Reconfiguring the system gives me the error "guix system: error: service 'networking' provided more than once"; here's a minimal paste of my config: https://paste.debian.net/1122860/
<ngz>Hello. I have an odd "permission denied" error from msgmerge while trying to build a new package. I pasted it at <http://paste.debian.net/1122881/>, if anyone feels like helping me debug the situation :) Thank you in advance.
<NieDzejkob>hmm, adding elogind and reconfiguring breaks all authentication (can't sudo, can't login in another vt) until the next reboot. Is that a known issue? Couldn't find anything in the bugtracker
<pkill9>ngz: brettgilio is right, i just meant the topic is banned, not that anyone would be banned for it
<pkill9>atleast it's my impression that it's banned
<ngz>pkill9: OK. Thank you for the clarification. To me, the verb "to ban" has a pretty narrow definition in the context of IRC. That is probably what confused me.
<bandali>brettgilio, it's probably some intel one, comes with the laptop itself and requires a nonfree blob
<bandali>as such, i don't currently use the wifi on my laptop
<bandali>haven't had a chance to swap it out for a freedom-respecting one yet
<pkill9>to be fair, i can't imagine how you would ban a topic without actually banning someone for talking about it (once it's clear they're ignoring the ban on the topic)
<str1ngs>bandali: is it a lenovo thinkpad or something?
<bandali>pkill9, afaik, people aren't outright banned for discussing it, but the topic itself is a forbidden one. specifically, telling others how to install nonfree software
<bandali>str1ngs, an (otherwise lovely) ThinkPad X200, and also a Dell XPS 15
<str1ngs>bandali: ahh I have a x220 and when I went to swap the wifi for a freedom nic. you cant because it needs to be whitelisted. so you might need to flash the bios
<str1ngs>freedom meaning more free wifi card, I forget the one I tried.
<ngz>pkill9: I think we ("we" as the Guix community) may want to define what is an acceptable answer to this sensitive topic. Refusing to answer is one option, but we can refine it, e.g., "We cannot help you to do that because... However, you may find an answer in other places." It sounds a bit less harsh to me.
<bandali>str1ngs, right. this, and librebooting my X200 has been on my todo list for a minute now
<str1ngs>bandali: same here, I just want to make sure I can recover just encase. I rather like my x220
<bandali>str1ngs, ha :) do you know if there's been any progress on librebooting X220? last i'd checked it wasn't supported by libreboot ?
<str1ngs> bandali I believe someone mentioned either coreboot or libreboot to. but it was recommend to get a jtag encase of flashing issues.
<bandali>str1ngs, ha, yeah i think is *is* supported by coreboot, but not libreboot
<str1ngs>bandali: I'm just reading that now seems only like x200 is supported.
<pkill9>cbaines: I want to pass a package definition to the inferior - not a package already in the inferior - and get back the inferior package. I tried messing around with `inferior-eval`, and I can use that, but i can't work out how to get a package from there. I dont know much about how inferior packages are obtained from an inferior though, so I was kind of shooting in the dark
<cbaines>pkill9, why do you want to pass a package definition to the inferior?
<pkill9>i want to customize a package in my system config, but have it built in an inferior so that it's not rebuilt when it's inputs change, and i'd prefer to avoid mainting this package in a separate repository, it would look nicer and be nicer to manage
<cbaines>I've just read the code again, it looks like there's a hash in the inferior process that the package would need adding in to, and then you'd create a inferior-package in the host Guix, with the hash key from the inferior
<pkill9>I was trying to work out how to get a package by looking at the %inferior-packages function in guix/inferior.scm
<pkill9>but i don't know much about the lower levels of guix
<cbaines>So I guess the first step is to get a valid package in the inferior Guix
<cbaines>Have you tried running your package definition through inferior-eval?
