<phant0mas>git-fetch? awesome
<mark_weaver>civodul: oooh, thanks very much for git-fetch!
<mark_weaver>I want to add a package that builds the firmware for the FSF-approved USB wifi adapter, and I'll need 'git-fetch' to do that.
<civodul>heheh, good :-)
<civodul>i think phant0mas will need it for glibc/hur
<mark_weaver>btw, was there any particular reason why you didn't upgrade guile-xcb to the latest tarball release?
<mark_weaver>(I notice that you upgraded guile-wm but not guile-xcb)
<civodul>ah no, i thought there was no new version actually
<civodul>so feel free to update it :-)
<mark_weaver>okay, thanks :)
<mark_weaver>I'm very happy that I've finally gotten modern linux-libre running stable on the YeeLoong. I intend to produce a package for that as well.
<mark_weaver>(I'm currently running 3.12.11, and I'll try 3.13.x soon)
<mark_weaver>Guix is really rocking on my Yeeloong now.
<mark_weaver>"rocking" == "running efficiently, robustly, and comfortably" :)
<mark_weaver>the last painful piece is going to be getting modern xorg-server running on it.
<mark_weaver>well, it might not be that painful, I just need to work through the issues...
<mark_weaver>well, I guess qemu is also an important piece, given how central it is to your recipes for building systems.
<civodul>ah, good news that it's working well there
<civodul>qemu is important for building VMs, which is what we have now
<civodul>in the long run, it will be less important, in a way
<civodul>KVM doesn't work on MIPS, does it?
<mark_weaver>I don't know, to be honest. But there's no architecture support for virtualization afaik.
<mark_weaver>so I suspect that means no. but I'm rather ignorant about modern virtualization tech.
<civodul>good night/day!
