<civodul>Hello Guix!
<Steap>Guix is up early.
<zerwas>civodul, do you care for a patch for GNUnet 0.10.1?
<zerwas>Unfortunately I can't compile anything for more than 2 minutes because my computer will overheat and shut down ...
<zerwas>So I can't properly test the patch:
<civodul>zerwas: i can test it for you
<civodul>and report the bugs for you to solve :-)
<zerwas>sure thing! :)
<civodul>zerwas: i fail to apply the patch; could you rebase it on master?
<phant0mas>okay I have glibc/hurd and glibc/hurd headers packages, the second inherits from the first
<phant0mas>I need to pass a flag to configure that points to an output folder that only exists in the glibc recipe but not in the headers one
<phant0mas>Is there a way to only pass the flag when the folder is present?
<phant0mas>civodul: I repeat the question from yesterday :P
<phant0mas>right now if I use (assoc-ref %outputs "locales") , I get an error at the glibc headers, because it inherits the config flags from glibc but I don't have that output folder there
<civodul>phant0mas: i guess "glibc-headers" doesn't have a "locales" outputs
<civodul>if you look at its 'outputs' field, right?
<phant0mas>it doesn't have because I am the one that removed it :P
<civodul>ok, that's why (assoc-ref %outputs "locales") returns #f
<civodul>you need to get rid of that
<phant0mas>but I need the folder to install the glibc locales from the glibc package
<phant0mas>don't I?
<civodul>for "glibc", not for "glibc-headers"
<civodul>it doesn't make sense for "glibc-headers" to install anything other than the headers
<civodul>so it should have just one output, the default one
<civodul>see what i mean?
<phant0mas>I see what you mean, but the problem is, I need to pass this flag (string-append "--localedir=" (assoc-ref %outputs "locales")
<phant0mas> "/share/locale") to glibc
<phant0mas>and glibc headers inherit the config phase from glibc
<phant0mas>and it gets this error
<phant0mas>can I somehow remove this specific flag when it's configuring the headers?
<civodul>ok, so you need to somehow get rid of that flag in glibc-headers
<civodul>ideally, instead of inheriting all of glibc's 'arguments' field, you could start with an empty fiel
<civodul>and then just add what you need
<civodul>otherwise, you can use substitute-keyword-arguments to do finer things
<civodul>but it's not very convenient
<phant0mas>give me 5
<civodul>phant0mas: if that ends up being tricky, we can discuss this on the list
<civodul>hopefully i can help you better than while chatting ;-)
<bavier>is the value returned by time() different during a package build?
<civodul>hi bavier
<civodul>no, it returns the real time
<civodul>that's an "impurity"
<bavier>I suppose
<bavier>just trying to track down a test failure when building mu
<civodul>oh, ok
<civodul>could be related to timezone info, no?
<bavier>yes, it tries to check message queries in some different timezones
<bavier>by resetting the TZ environment variable
<civodul>then you probably need to add 'tzdata' to the inputs, and set TZDIR to point to $tzdata/share/zoneinfo
<bavier>ahh, ok, I'll try that
<bavier>civodul: that fixed it.
<civodul>bavier: cool!
<civodul>good night/day!
