<phant0mas>good night everyone,see you tomorrow :-)
<phant0mas>hi guix
<phant0mas>now for the gnumach kernel
<phant0mas>I have to put the same configure
<phant0mas>just different make commands
<phant0mas>so do I have to write the same parts ,with mach headers, again
<phant0mas>or is there another way?
<bavier`>package's can inherit from other packages, with overrides
<bavier`>perhaps that might be appropriate here
<phant0mas>any guidance on where I can find some examples in the other recipes?
<bavier`>look for the "inherit" keyword, such as in python.scm:161
<phant0mas>okay :-)
<phant0mas>So when I use inherit everything stays the same exept the parts that I say to be done otherwise?
<bavier`>phant0mas: that's my understanding
<phant0mas>:-D great
<phant0mas>a question how can I say that don't do the inherited build phase but the normal one?
<sriharsha>phant0mas, by including (build-system gnunet-build-system)
<sriharsha>is overwhelmed by too much of gnunet
<davexunit>civodul: I saw on the mailing list that you use EMMS to play music. do you do so with an MPD backend?
<davexunit>I've been meaning to learn to use EMMS because I hear that it can talk to MPD.
<jmd>I think that software named with four letter acronyms outperforms that with only three letters.
<davexunit>but this 4 letter software can work as a client to the 3 letter software. :)
<davexunit>I've rediscovered my love for MPD. very good architecture.
<civodul>Hello Guix!
<civodul>davexunit: no i don't use MPD
<civodul>i use ogg123, mpg321, and mpc123
<civodul>and... PulseAudio!
<davexunit>civodul: oh, okay
<civodul>i remember MPD is quite cool though
<davexunit>yeah it's a little server that just plays music and there's a billion different clients for it.
<civodul>at work, Manuel Serrano did something similar with HOP, but purely webish
<davexunit>I use a tiny client called mpdscribble that just scrobbles tracks to and now I'm going to try using EMMS for actually browsing my library and playing music.
<civodul>damn, the main output of our Git package takes 200 MiB
*davexunit got emms running with mpd :)
<davexunit>this is very cool.
<davexunit>new project: package mpd for guix
<civodul>good idea :-)
***drewc2 is now known as drewc
<phant0mas>working on gnumach
<phant0mas>oh crap...
<phant0mas>trial and error
<phant0mas>../linux/src/drivers/scsi/BusLogic.c:53:24: fatal error: FlashPoint.c: No such file or directory
<phant0mas>trying to find out why
<phant0mas>reading gnumach documentantion
<phant0mas>How can I point to the include folder produced by gnumach-headers recipe?
<phant0mas>if I want to pass to configure
<phant0mas>pass it*
<civodul>phant0mas: ISTR that the GNU Mach tarball lacks a few files actually :-)
<civodul>you can ask on #hurd for that
<civodul>i think it builds only if you build the minimal set of drivers
<civodul>something like that
<phant0mas>aaa okay gonna ask on hurd
<phant0mas>civodul: had to disable scsi drivers
<mark_weaver>at some point, we'll have to enable the scsi drivers of course :)
<mark_weaver>but one step at a time is good..
