<civodul>Hello Guix!
*youlysses is still shocked how-much harder it seems to be (from my own experience) to get Guix going on-top of NixOS over that of Parabola.
<youlysses>I wonder if libbz2 does not in-fact come with the NixOS bzip2 package... maybe that's the issue? :^U
<youlysses>civodul: o/
<youlysses>So I'm commited to get Guix on my NixOS install tonight, any idea why libbzip2 wouldn't be working, even though it's picking it up bzip2 in-general via configure?
<civodul>dunno, why do you say libbz2 isn't working?
<civodul>is it found by ./configure ?
<youlysses>civodul: Sorry about that, [].
<youlysses>And that ... []
*youlysses is not sure why onece you post something on, it just doesn't take you directly to said paste. :^P
<civodul>ah, ok
<civodul>can you open the config.log file, look for "checking for BZ2_bzWriteOpen", and paste the 10 or so lines around it?
<youlysses>civodul: Yup, sec.
<youlysses>taylanub: Should've been GNUtoo. :^P
<taylanub>Someone with the nick "Dabian" joined #emacs; I couldn't hold myself from making the joke. :P
<civodul>ahah :-)
<civodul>youlysses: ok, so it says it can't find libbz2 :-)
<civodul>perhaps you should run "guix package -i bzip2"?
<civodul>and make sure the env. variables are set as noted by "guix package"
<youlysses>civodul: Yup, Sorry if I wasn't clear about that. And I'm saying on this box, I don't have Guix installed at all, I'm trying to do-so via Nix.
<civodul>ah ok
<civodul>well "nix-env -i bzip2" then
<youlysses>civodul: Well, it's installed... I believe. I'll try again though, I suppose.
<civodul>ah, hmm
<youlysses>Yup, it was.
<civodul>then make sure ~/.nix-profile/lib is in $LIBRARY_PATH
<civodul>export LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/.nix-profile/lib
<civodul>better yet: add Guix to Nixpkgs :-)
*civodul has been meaning to do that
<youlysses>civodul: Still nothing. I wasn't planning to sleep much tonight and I have nothing of intrest really to-do tommorow... do you think the NixOS guys would mind?
<civodul>youlysses: so you did the "export LIBRARY_PATH" thing and that doesn't help?
<civodul>as for adding to Nixpkgs, i think that's OK
<civodul>i also plan to add a package for Nix in Guix ;-)
<youlysses>civodul: Yup. "export LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/.nix-profile/lib", followed by attempting yet another "./configure --with-libgcrypt-prefix=/home/jsgrant/.nix-profile/".
<youlysses>civodul: Exciting. :^D
<civodul>hmm weird
<civodul>youlysses: did you install gcc-wrapper?
<youlysses>civodul: Yup.
<civodul>well, dunno
<civodul>that's really a setup issue
<civodul>maybe someone on #nixos can help ;-)
<youlysses>I mean all of this seems so straight-forward, that yead, I'm really not sure either. :^P
<civodul>you can also try ./configure LDFLAGS="-L$HOME/.nix-profile/lib"
<youlysses>civodul: Too, nothing. Oh well... I still try to spin the wheels till I hopefully grasp it. :^P
<youlysses>civodul: I going to assume to it is a user error, for the AUR install via Parabola was painless. I suppose it'll put hair on my chest and what-not.
<civodul>youlysses: and $HOME/.nix-profile/lib/ does exist, right?
<youlysses>civodul: Yup.
<civodul>then i'm clueless :-/
<youlysses>civodul: It's fine, I'm going to play around and see if I'm able to at least make a solid start at writing a package for guix... maybe methodically going through that process will help me spot what, if I'm in-fact doing something in-correct.
<youlysses>civodul: Ok, I'm going to take a power-nap then get back to it. o/
<civodul>ok :-)
<Steap>Do we have to use a special module to be able to use search-patch ?
<Steap>oh right, gnu packages
