<youlysses>So I just saw dmd, cool stuff, :^)
<habstinat>How far away are we from being able to boot to Guix on mips64el (Lemote Yeeloong)? Can I "bootstrap" a Guix install from a Debian install on this architecture?
<mark_weaver>it'll probably be at least a few months before Guix is bootable, maybe more.
<mark_weaver>though it's hard to make predictions; it depends on how fast people work on it.
<civodul>Hello Guixers!
<youlysses>civodul: o/
<Steap>"make check" fails, what files should I attach to my bug report apart from test-suite.log ?
<civodul>Steap: the .log file corresponding to the test file
<civodul>like derivations.log
<Steap>There is only "last-expiry-cleanup" in /usr/local/var/nix/substitute-binary/cache/
<Steap>any idea why ?
<civodul>if you try, say "guix build -S emacs", does any new file appear?
<Steap>civodul: nope
<civodul>Steap: could you try running "guix substitute-binary" as i suggested?
<civodul>did i really suggest it, BTW?
<Steap>civodul: yes, but since the file does not exist in cache/
<Steap>how could that work ?
<civodul>which file?
<Steap>you asked me to run
<Steap> echo info /nix/store/i35q1vm2sl27sjhs7mx8n2m05056ya9x-subversion-1.7.8.tar.bz2 | \\
<Steap> sudo ./pre-inst-env guix substitute-binary --query
<civodul>ah ytes
<civodul>it doesn't matter if subversion-1.7.8.tar.bz2 doesn't exist
<civodul>the command checks whether has a substitute for that
<Steap>oh ok
<Steap>returns 0 but prints nothing on stdout
<civodul>which normally means "not found"
<civodul>did it create something under /.../cache?
<Steap>(I ran the whole command as root since I do not have sudo, but I guess it does not matter)
<Steap>Did you think it would throw an exception (cf. your patch) ?
<civodul>did you try the patch?
