<ashmew2>Should i submit my application for GSOC? Can anyone provide any insight on that please ?
<civodul>Hello Guixers!
*civodul has a preliminary auto-updater :-)
<ashmew2>Hello civodul
<ashmew2>Auto updater sounds nice :D
<civodul>hello ashmew2
<civodul>it's not only nice, it's necessary to work around my laziness
<civodul>and the natural laziness of all of us ;-)
<ashmew2>civodul, im trying to ./configure my guix0.1 tarball
<ashmew2>it says no guile-2.0 found, any help?
<ashmew2>No package 'guile-2.0' found
<ashmew2>Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
<ashmew2>installed software in a non-standard prefix.
<ashmew2>Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GUILE_CFLAGS
<ashmew2>and GUILE_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
<ashmew2>See the pkg-config man page for more details.
<ashmew2>sorry for the sudden flood
<ashmew2>export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/guile:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH doesnt seem to work.
<civodul>should be export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
<civodul>can you try?
<ashmew2>yes sure just a second
<ashmew2>No package guile-2.0 found
<ashmew2><ashmew2> ./configure PKG_CONFIG=true GUILE_CFLAGS="" GUILE_LIBS=""
<ashmew2><ashmew2> did the trick
<ashmew2>sorry got disconnected.
<ashmew2>hmm , undefined reference to `sqlite3_exec'
<ashmew2>hello CaptainLex
<CaptainLex>Hello ashmew2!
<ashmew2>what's up ?
<CaptainLex>I am stranded at my friend's house, away from my laptop, so my progress in installing guix packages is stalled.
<ashmew2>I successfully installed guix , trying to get the daemon up and running right now.
<ashmew2>Away from Binary must hurt :-/
<ashmew2>Laptop :P
<CaptainLex>Haha yeah, it is when the pressure cooker's on, that's for sure
<CaptainLex>(IRC on my phone)
<CaptainLex>This should be interesting, ashmew2
<CaptainLex>We're both arch users installing the same codebase of Guix and Guile
<CaptainLex>If you're able to install GCC, I give up :P
<ashmew2>CaptainLex, hahaha :P
<ashmew2>CaptainLex, you trying as a student Right ? :P
<CaptainLex>Hahaha yes I am
<ashmew2>i just got the daemon running right now
<CaptainLex>(I tried installing hello, and Guix failed on building its GCC package when building the dependencies)
<ashmew2>CaptainLex, which projects are you looking forward to ?
<CaptainLex>I was interested primarily in the Desktop Environment project
<CaptainLex>Anything to make the distro more paleatable
<CaptainLex>That is my first name, yes; I actually go by my last name, Dale.
<CaptainLex>That's okay, I just didn't have the guts to tell the maili;ng list more than once
<ashmew2>yeah, that needs to be done. Major reason why people do not use GNU/Linux systems is because of looseness at times.
<CaptainLex>It was a cascading error
<CaptainLex>Where do you study, ashmew2?
<add^_>Howdy guixers
<CaptainLex>Hello add^_!
<add^_>What's up?
<add^_>How are you CaptainLex?
<CaptainLex>I'm okay. Sadly stranded away from computer, so my plans to debug guix have been derailed. Yourself?
<add^_>I feel like crap, but at least I'm not away from my computers.
<CaptainLex>What's the matter? I may ask, that is!
<add^_>Just a normal depression.
<add^_>Well, normal isn't quite it, but for me it's normal.
<add^_>Why are you away from your computer?
<add^_>Not that I'm at my computer 24/7 but I thought I should ask.
<add^_>Now it went all quiet again :-P
<CaptainLex>Woops, sorry
<CaptainLex>My phone doesn't keep me up-to-date unless it highlights
<add^_>so I need to write CaptainLex for you to notice?
<CaptainLex>I had an engagement on campus last night and my ride fell through, so I crashed at a friend's place
<CaptainLex>Well, it'll notify me then, but I mean the chat updates live if I'm watching
<add^_>fell through? E.g you couldn't ride with X-person home?
<add^_>That sucks
<CaptainLex>And now it's the morning and I'm trying to figure out how to get home
<add^_>I suppose
<CaptainLex>Ehhhh a little bit. I was hoping to get a little Guixing done, but this has been relaxing, at least
<add^_>Can't help you with that I'm afraid, got no drivers license and I don't even know where you live ;-) I'm most likely on the other side of earth.
<CaptainLex>I'll be having lunch with a friend who drives
<add^_>ah, ok
<add^_>You in the US?
<CaptainLex>Yeah, in MN
<add^_>MN... Hmmm
<CaptainLex>Yep, sorry. Where're you?
<add^_>I'm in Sweden :-P
<add^_>So, almost the other side of earth
<CaptainLex>Aha. Almost!
<CaptainLex>I'm 50% Swedish, actually
<add^_>Cool :-D
<CaptainLex>As is much of Minnesota :P
<add^_>Yeah, I should have figured
<CaptainLex>Actually, I may be 25% - and the other 25% Norwegian. I vaguely recall my grandparents have a controversial marriage xD
<CaptainLex>Anyway, I am off to meet my friend
<CaptainLex>Farewell guixers! ashmew2: I'm eager to hear how your install goes!
<ashmew2>sup add^_
<add^_>Hello ashmew2
<ashmew2>What;s up ?
<add^_>Trying to trim some code I wrote a couple of years ago :-)
<ashmew2>hahah nice
<add^_>and you?
<ashmew2>trying to get something installed on guix :D
<add^_>Wait, "trying" implies it doesn't work as well as it should.
<ashmew2>haha, trying is the fun man.
<ashmew2>No try , no fun (in everything :P )
<ashmew2>Maybe Maybe :P :P
<civodul>hello there!
*civodul needs to catch up with mail
<CaptainLex>Hello civodul!
<Steap>civodul: couldn't we check for guile >= 2.0 in configure ?
<CaptainLex>civodul: Seconded xD
<CaptainLex>And I'm sure ashmew2 would agree!
<civodul>ah sure, makes sense
<civodul>i thought we did somehow
<civodul>well, we do this: PKG_CHECK_MODULES([GUILE], [guile-2.0])
<civodul>so that means >= 2.0 :-)
<Steap>really ?
<Steap>CaptainLex and ashmew2 have trouble with 2.1.0
<civodul>ah, but 2.1.0 doesn't exist
<civodul>that's the thing
<Steap>what's the development version called ?
<Steap>and it does not exist ?
<civodul>but i wouldn't recommend it
<civodul>that's the name of the branch, so it's different ;-)
<CaptainLex>Work time!
