<civodul>hi there!
<civodul>zimoun: i'm looking at and i think i'll propose a walkthrough
<civodul>sounds like an interesting format: 20mn, talk + demo
<civodul>a workshop would be nice but it's much more work and that'd require a few people to run it
<zimoun>civodul: cool! 20min is really short ;-)
<civodul>yeah, just enough time to run "guix pull" ;-)
<zimoun>heh :-)
<zimoun>If you need podcasts when washes your dishes, Nix related stuff here: <>
<civodul>zimoun: in the end i submitted a talk, we'll see how it goes
<civodul>zimoun: Tweag even has a podcast?!
<civodul>that looks very nice
<zimoun>civodul: cool! Let me know how the talk goes. :-)
<zimoun>well, I have listen <> about <> and I was very interested. :-)
<civodul>neat, what's the takeaway?
<zimoun>the daemon and scheduling is a bottleneck :-)
<civodul>oh, surprise
<zimoun>Hey, a “new” French search engine about Scientific papers and the Guix HPC report appears in <>. Neat! :-)
<civodul>zimoun: isn't it just a frontend to and similar archives?
<civodul>ah yes, "search engine"
<civodul>i had misread
<zimoun>civodul, yes it “aggreagtes” data from various archives
<zimoun>note it is not accurate at all… well, I did not know you did a collaboration woith «MUSEE DE PREHISTOIRE» ;-)
<civodul>i didn't know either :-)
<civodul>still it works surprisingly well
<civodul>(did you work in Liège?)
<zimoun>yes, ~2 years :-)
<zimoun>thanks to this post-doc, I drank a lot of beers ;-)
<civodul>so it works pretty well, after all!
<civodul>heh :-)
<zimoun>yes, for me, there are 2 false-positive; one about a Medical Doctor and the other I do not know (Taiwan?)
<zimoun>civodul: I should be present at the JRES 2022 :-) My talk has been selected \o/
<civodul>zimoun: yay, great!
<civodul>that's good news
<zimoun>civodul: short tuto = 1h. What I will not do for climbing in the Calanques ;-)
<civodul>oh you're going to climb this week-end?
<zimoun>by “this”, do you mean tomorrow or the one after the JRES? ;-) Tomorrow, probably not. After JRES, who knows. ;-)
<civodul>heh, ok
<civodul>oh right, i had forgotten where it takes place
<civodul>got it :-)
<zimoun>have a nice week-end! (this one :-))
<rekado> guix.install("") fails with “guix package: error: gfortran: unknown package”
<rekado>but the corresponding import command does not fail; I’ll investigate this later tonight.
<civodul>rekado: that's because gfortran is a hidden package
<civodul>so you can refer to it via specification->package
<civodul>rekado: cannot, indeed :-)
<rekado>oh, that’s a pity. I was so confident in that specification->package hack.
<civodul>it's a good hack, but for the toolchain we had to hide the "raw" packages
<civodul>we could special-case gfortran in the importer
