<handheldCar>"The root-owned /etc/nix-setuid.conf file is read by nix-setuid-helper; it should contain exactly two words: the user name under which the authorized guix-daemon runs, and the name of the build users group."
<viric># Using a third computer through ssh as a forwarder
<viric># It requires the special "GatewayPorts clientspecified", in sshd_config
<viric>civodul: if you can't ask any port redirection or upnp to your firewall admins, and you don't have any sshd under your control in a public address, you are a bit doomed. you are in a situation where you have to use '3rd party services'
<civodul>well i could also install filegive on a machine i have access to, even if i'm not root there, right?
<youlysses>So I did a clean install of Guix and I'm no-longer having an issue installing cmake -- that being said, something seems to of gone astray loading gl.scm, when I was trying to fix it for the (hopefully) final patch, it now throws an "unknown package" at me again, for all expressions in the module. Here it is, if you want to look for something, I might have over-looked. :^P http://paste.lisp.org/+2ZFU
<civodul>so dunno, maybe you could strace ./pre-inst-env guix build freeglut, to check which gl.scm gets picked or somethign
*youlysses has been considering just retorgrading back to NixOS from Fedora19, until the upstream GNU distro is a viable option -- I'd imagine that there would be less-of a chance, for a margin of error doing-so. :^P
<youlysses>viric: At the time, I was still pretty heavily dependent on a DE and GNOME was by-far the most-usable -- I had came into contact with, so seeing that Fedora is more-or-less the primetime of GNOME in many regards, it made sense -- in such-a framing. Since then, as I've gotten down an dirty and have pretty much fully abandoned any want nor need for a such an environment, so the main selling point is now pretty-much irrelevant. :^P
<youlysses>The thought-process then was more-so direct practicallity vs a technologically superior alternative, which usually I'm impulsive enough to throw everything out the window and go the road less traveled, to get there -- but I think the paranoia of having something due in a class, and something goes wrong and I wouldn't know how to fix it -- always kept me fairly far-off, but now, while certainly no expert, I think I have a solid
<youlysses>foundational basis, in-general -- that would allow me to get over that hump (too and a live-image ready, just in case). :^)
<youlysses>I really should at least try to get 3-4 hours of sleep tonight; I'll sleep on it, but there's a good 50/50 chance that I'll end-up on that side-of the fence by the end of today.
<alip2890>in gnu/packages/algebra.scm:106 the prefix of readline is retrieved, from inputs, which is a function argument. how can I get the input list in #:configure-flags?
<alip2890>I guess I always have to alist-replace the configure phase?
<youlysses>So -- is the first patch I submited really creating the package in guix's top-level directory... because from what I can see on it, it looks as-if it actually is compiling the expression to gnu/packages/...?
<civodul>alip2890: there's the %build-inputs variable, which is a list of name/directory pairs
<civodul>alip2890: why do you say you always have to replace the configure phase?
<alip2890>I mean whenever I need prefixes in configure flags, but if there's %build-inputs there is no need
<alip2890>I just saw the configure phase replaced several times in order to get prefixes, so I thought that's the way to go
