<mark_weaver>hi zacts! any news on guile-for-freebsd-ports ?
<zacts>mark_weaver: sorry, I've been slacking a bit due to some school stuff, and I've been busy out and about.
<mark_weaver>no worries, just curious :)
<zacts>I'll look at it tomorrow, I have an exam tonight in a couple of hours.
<zacts>but yeah. =)
<zacts>I know zRecursive is wanting this soon also, and a few other people.
<zacts>I'm just getting so tired of working with shars and FreeBSD ports, so I'm kind of procrastinating a bit too.
<zacts>I really want to get started with guix
<mark_weaver>guix 0.6 should be out very soon
<zacts>oh nice!
<zacts>so will guix 1.0 be a full minimal distro?
<zacts>and are the version numbers reflecting core changes, imported packages, or both?
<mark_weaver>we're definitely aiming for being a self-contained distro, but I'm not sure how that will correspond to the version numbers.
<mark_weaver>well, I think for now we're just trying to put out a release every 3 months or so. lots of changes and improvements happening.

<nalaginrut>morning guilers~
<wingo>(pk 'ohai) is my favorite debugging device
<civodul>Hello Guilers!
<wingo>heya civodul :)
<sjoerd`>anyone else having problems with compiling eval.scm from commit af11242268c22fb80a102e66f142e0073f7889cc?
<sjoerd`>lt-guile keeps hanging using > 60% CPU but no disk changes to the temporary go file
<lloda>are you using an updated libgc / bdwgc? (7.4 I guess?) that's what fixed it for me.
<sjoerd`>Right, I have a look at it. Might it be the case that I use multiple cores now?
<sjoerd`>Just checked it, but yes, it's 7.4.0
<lloda>hm. I don't know what the ultimate source of the error is. It works for me with bdwgc-master.
<wingo>sjoerd`: either update bdwgc from git, or build with GC_MARKERS=1 in the environment
<sjoerd`>I'll give it a go
<sjoerd`>What is changed with GC_MARKERS and/or the updated bdwgc?
<sjoerd`>CPU usage is down dramatically now
<wingo>GC_MARKERS=1 disables parallel marking, and bdwgc 7.4.0 has a parallel marking bug that leads it to an infinite loop
<sjoerd`>definitely not pretty
