<guixy>What would I specify as the package? When I use "--with-source=engine=" or "--with-source=freedink-engine=" it says "guix build: warning: transformation 'with-source' had no effect on email@example.com"
<rockandska>civodul: Hi ludovic, i was reading the topic on ML about manifest.scm and i'm glad that the topic is back since our last conversation about this a long time ago
<DamienCassou>is there a way to a guix system's configuration file instantiate guix system VMs/containers?
***wingo_ is now known as wingo
<DamienCassou>another question: is there a way to declare the VPN client configurations I want in the guix system configuration file? I need 3 there and none should be active by default. I would also like to put my WIFI access points there.
<civodul>DamienCassou: for the first question: there's no direct support for full-system VMs within Guix System, but it's a low-hanging fruit: you could write a service that simply starts a <virtual-machine> script
<NieDzejkob>sneek: later tell vits95: you could define your own little service type and specify (extensions (list (service-extension etc-service-type (lambda (config) `(("udisks.conf" ,(local-file ...)))))))
<nckx>jonsger: I'm stuck in the same place you are.
<nckx>Well, stuck… Haven't touched it for the past week, waiting for inspiration to strike after trying far too many random patchings & GCC versions. Haven't tried core-updates yet, though; who knows, maybe the #include_next mess is to blame.
<jonsger>nckx: it was similar for me. Making almost no progress, doesn't help with motivation
<zzappie>on the weekend I finally switched to guixSD
<nckx>jonsger: I bounce between late-night ‘OMG perhaps the 5th character in the error message is THE CLUE to the PUZZLE!’ and ‘nope it's a meaningless bogus message & I need to learn the entirety of GCC and bootstrapping to even guess at the real cause’. Indeed not very motivating, good thing people on IRC are 🙂
<nckx>zzappie: Glad you fixed it! Watch out with ~, it only works where someone decides to explicitly support it and is usually a bad idea anywhere non-interactive.
<nckx>zimoun: Thanks! I found results for everyone & the moon's sources.json, but none of it looked relevant to Guix.
<nckx>Hm, I think the other Overdrive is hitting another bug (the freezing one). No Guix for me.
<sirgazil>civodul: regarding heading levels and their style in blog posts, it seems the website design expects posts to start at h2, so the headings in blog posts should be equal to or lower than that level to render correctly.
<civodul>sirgazil: how would you suggest addressing that, so one can still write "normal-looking" Markdown posts?
<sirgazil>civodul: I have to check, because the current design is used not only in blog posts but in other pages too. So, ideally, the templates and style should be updated so that people can use h1 normally in all pages, and markdown post should not need modifications.
<sirgazil>civodul: I'm kind of bussy doing other things, but I'll try to suggest a patch this week.
<vagrantc>so ... "guix package -I ." shows the installed packages of the currently active profile ... is there a way to get a list of packages that also includes the system packages in the user's path?
<vagrantc>and ... it's also possible to have more than one profile active?
<nixo_>hi zimoun! I still need to answer your mail (another busy week) but good news are: updated julia to 1.4.0-rc1 with llvm9, fixed _modules_ determinism (finally I get identical ji files) and still looking at fixing sys.so determinism. I'll send an update on the mailing list soon (TM)
<lispmacs[work]>Hi, I'm wanting spam filtering in evolution email client. Evolution docs say to install bogofilter or spam assassin, then enable certains preference options, which I did. There was a bogofilter package, which I installed in userland. But I'm not clear if I need to install some kind of bogofilter service. Evolution does the same thing whether or not you have bogofilter installed, so I'm not clear if I just haven't tr
