<civodul>Hello Guix!
<civodul>jmd: i'm processing your patches :-)
<jmd>Ok. Thanks.
<jmd>These packages which depend upon themselves are rather nasty.
<jmd>I wonder if it might be a good idea to split them into two or more outputs.
<civodul>no, i think that's OK
<civodul>those that depend on themselves for cross-compilation you mean, right?
<civodul>so yes, that's fine
<civodul>oh the big patch entail glib/python/dbus rebuilds...
<civodul>well, that's fine i guess
<handheldCar>I tried to build zsh in a virtual machine, but the virtual machine gave me so many issues that I quit. (I need another PC)
<civodul>you wrote a package definition for it?
<handheldCar>no, would that help?
<civodul>actually, if you're using gnu-system-demo-0.5, you need -m 1024 or so if you want to use 'guix pull' or the substituter
<civodul>handheldCar: dunno, i was trying to understand what you were saying :-)
<handheldCar>wasn't running well. maybe your demo will run smoother.
<civodul>what virtual machine did you use? how did you try to build zsh?
<handheldCar>I used virtual machine gnewsense. default gateway was missing, lots of buttons would register ten times after I pressed them: exampleeeeeeeee.
<handheldCar>virtualbox I mean
<civodul>oh ok
<civodul>how does this related to Guix? :-)
<jmd>civodul: Have you thought about how to handle those autoconf tests which can only be resolved at run time?
<civodul>connection lost
