<civodul>i can't think of any nice workaround, other than choosing a shorter directory name
<civodul>or you could change the value GUIX_TEST_ROOT in config-daemon.ac
<guest`>about linux.scm, "XXX: For some reason, some virtio modules need to be explicitly added", .config uses dependencies, so the other entries will only appear after oldconfig. substitute* invocation relies on the entries already existing, so it relies on defconfig output and can break in other releases
<civodul>guest`: yeah, you may be right, i'm really no expert here :-/
<civodul>however, i thought "make config" would create a .config containing all the CONFIG_ entries, commented or not
<mark_weaver>there are to variants of pysqlite-2.6.3.tar.gz, with the exact same filename, but with a 20 kilobyte diff between them. *grump*
<mark_weaver>when he switched from code.google.com to pypi.python.org, I guess he decided to make a bunch of fixes and changes, but couldn't be bothered to change the version number. I sent him email about it, but he never replied.
<mark_weaver>this doesn't exactly play nice with a purely-functional distro like ours. we'll have to invent our own new version number, I guess.
<guest`>mark_weaver: what about changing the name to pysqlite-pypi-2.6.3.tar.gz?
<mark_weaver>well, that means changing the package name, which is even more radical.
<mark_weaver>I was hoping that if we waited a while, 2.6.4 would come out, and we could avoid having to deal with this.
<mark_weaver>would you like to try emailing him? maybe if we hears from more than one person, he could be convinced to bump the version number.
<mark_weaver>I can send you the diff if you like. it's quite extensive.
<guest`>mark_weaver: I think I'll wait and try other packages first
<mark_weaver>I've never actually used substitutes (for security reasons), and I don't know much about how they work, so I can't verify that civodul's suggested command should work. but he's the most knowledgable person on Guix by far :)
