<zimoun>rekado: about GWL, I am doing ‘guix environment -C -L channel --load=.guix.scm’ then ./bootstrap && ./configure && make. And I do not understand why "/usr/local/share/guile/site/3.0" appears in guix/extensions/workflow.scm. Any idea about what I am doing wrong?
<zimoun>rekado_: thanks. These ’configure’ are and will always be mysterious for me. Thanks for the explanations, make sense.
<zimoun>civodul: thanks for Docker. Now I am trying to put the initial motivation in a blog post or cookbook recipe. Let decide once written down. :-) I have started yesterday envening then hit bug#46390 and fix it with patch#46391.
<civodul>hey, i guess i haven't seen those yet :-)
<zimoun>civodul: well, ‘guix lint -L example foo’ fails uglyly but not ‘guix lint -L /tmp/example foo’ or ’guix lint -L . foo’ with ’foo’ a custom package with “bad” Git source. Mainly because (search-path %load-path "example/my-pkg.scm") return #f i.e., %load-path contains ("example” "/gnu/store/…"). Anyway, in
<zimoun>short, another corner case. These days, I «have the chic» to find them. ;-)
<civodul>oh we didn't write about the R.install/guix module you worked on, rekado_
<zimoun>civodul: thanks for the better wording. :-)
<zimoun>one perspective mothacehe discussed yesterday (and we are discussing it since last year ;-)) is Docker images as a service. User provides a manifest+channel and the instance returns a link you can use for “docker load”, for example.
<civodul>chances are too few people will notice and read
<zimoun>civodul: what do you mean? Do you mean we should send an email to guix-science?
<zimoun>rekado_: yeah, it remembers my math teacher saying: this proof is trivial; but with my classmates we had not any idea how to prove it. And later, we often answered: that’s trivial because it were so obvious and the teacher said: no, it’s not! Well, since then, I am always suspicious when I read “trivial”. :-)
<janneke>that's quite an impressive achievement, folks!
*janneke also likes the (past autotools); been pondering on something like that for the bootstrap
<rekado_>civodul: I already forwarded it to all MDC cluster users
<zimoun>maybe one solution should to push for an upgrade of the GNU mailman instance and address the blockers. I do not know. I am not enough annoyed to dive in. :-)
<zimoun>rekado_: I have seen that GWL had not been announced on guix-science. Maybe, it is worth. I do not know who is reading but who knows. ;-)
