<mark_weaver>my understanding is that programs built with Guix contain embedded references to the shared libraries they need, using the rpath mechanism. However, if you build programs manually (outside of Guix), then you probably need to either arrange to build with the relevant rpath linker flags, or set LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
<mark_weaver>civodul or Steap would be able to answer more definitively; they'll probably be online in 4-5 hours.
<handheldCar>I'm not building with Guix yet btw b/c I'm building it
<jxself>It became a GNU package in March 2012 if that's important.
<youlysses> jxself: It more-so seems to be that we actively aren't calling the "GNU" system distribution a "GNU+Linux-libre" distro, though we'd do-so ourselves... but I don't they realize that such distro's name, is not the same as it's operating-system sub-classification, though GNU is in both of them. :^P
<jxself>Exactly - My understanding is GNU/Linux is for a version of the system that is distinct from GNU itself.
<youlysses>davexunit: Fyi -- if I have time before Thursday (going home tomy parents, to visit my Grandpa and I'll be stranded, possibly without a computer all weekend), I plan on writing an expression for at least sdl and guile-sdl. :^)
<youlysses>Right now, I'm trying to figure out SLiM, so the distro will be able to nicely log-into ratpoison, or what have it, but cmake is still being obnoxious.
<youlysses>davexunit: I plan on packaging both eventually (SDL2 is certainly on my list), but right-now I want to get guile-2d 0.1 fully up and supported. That being said, I'm excited that you're looking into that direction. :^)
<youlysses>jxself: Well I might bum of my mom's 5-6 y/o laptop; I'm not bringing mine down though (right now it's much-more effort than it's worth (it's hooked up to my desk/workstation area and the hinge is broken), might finally convince her to give it to me this weekend ... she has had to laptops since then and has never used it since. It'll be nice to use a laptop "on the go" again... :^)
<davexunit>civodul: problems vary. guile-sdl is just broken on OS X.
<davexunit>I use a subset of SDL for guile-2d, so I could probably write enough of a binding for my purposes and start living in the modern world of SDL2
<civodul>ah so Guile-SDL is for SDL 1 or something?
<youlysses>civodul: Everything working ok? I'm trying to figure out SLiM right-now, but cmake is still giving be trouble. Is there a way to clear, or roll-back to a completely empty profile -- I'm not sure if that'll do any good though, seeing there error is still in the check process of building... :^/
<civodul>BIOT is not really something i'd like to promote as fun & trendy
<youlysses>civodul: That reminds me, am I doing something wrong -- or is the demo distro so tiny, that is not even enough room to even install parted and related partition-utils? I'm trying to work off it directly, but I can't seem to do anything besides what's already there. :^P
<youlysses>civodul: It'd be nice that the next-release would have at least some tools to manipulate partitions, so one could externally expand the image then go into the vm and then match the new free-space to one's root partition. That being said, I still need to package kbd, for such-a thing to be attractive for me. :^)
<jxself>And yes, I've noticed it's much slower these days.
<youlysses>civodul: Is there the eventual plan to segment the distro much like NixOS does, where there'd be an ~300mb minimal image and then a full GNOME distribution, or -- or is this still not a concern yet? :^)
