<civodul>Hello Guix!
<phant0mas>good morning guix
<civodul>hey hey!
<civodul>phant0mas: don't hesitate to email me or something so we can discuss the glibc-headers thing
<atheia>Good morning all!
<civodul>hey atheia
<atheia>hiya civodul
<phant0mas>civodul: sorry I hadn't email you yet, too many lessons over here
<phant0mas>I found a way to do it, you actually only need 3 flags in headers configure to get it work
<phant0mas> ((#:configure-flags _)
<phant0mas> `(list "--enable-add-ons"
<phant0mas> "--host=i686-pc-gnu"
<phant0mas> "--enable-obsolete-rpc"))
<phant0mas>and I send an email yesterday about the building issue
<civodul>about the building issue?
<civodul>ah yes, i see it
<phant0mas>the one I told you yesterday
<civodul>yes, perfect
<phant0mas>I have to find some time to send the patches, they build glibc successfully
<phant0mas>I am just working on making them a bit nicer :P
<civodul>that's good news!
<civodul>let's try to integrate them piecemeal
<civodul>we can discuss how to make them "nicer"
<civodul>looks like you've done the hardest part already, so making them nicer is OK ;-)
<phant0mas>ok, I will start tomorrow sending them to the list
<phant0mas>I am trying your patch now
<phant0mas>it works
<civodul>ok, good news
<civodul>sorry about the breakage!
<phant0mas>no worries
<bavier>I'm packaging a backup tool, and it installs into "sbin". Should that be "bin" instead?
<taylanub>bavier: if it makes sense for non-root users to use it, sure
<taylanub>I don't know whether Guix attempts to make that the case for executables for which it normally isn't .. I think that would rather be a Hurd thing. OTOH, some distros demolished the sbin/bin difference entirely IIRC, like Arch.
<civodul>howdy, a_e!
<a_e>Imagemagick has made a new release and _moved_ the old one into the legacy subdirectory.
<a_e>My suggestion is to download from the legacy subdirectory, and to always stay behind one release.
*Steap is facepalming
<a_e>It is annoying if the rug is always pulled from under our feet.
<Steap>a_e: can't we add the legacy subdirectory to the mirrors ?
<a_e>By the way, a few of the mirrors are also not updated any more, I will take them out.
<Steap>so when a new version is released, the download of the previous one fails, but Guix just fetches it from the legacy subdir instead
<a_e>Hm, yes, we could; we would need to modify the mirror locations to contain the final subdirectory.
<civodul>a_e: wouldn't it be enough to add the legacy/ URL in addition to the other URL?
<civodul>oh, yes
<civodul>even better
<a_e>Actually, some mirrors keep older source also at the main directory level.
<a_e>But I suppose the mirrors are tried in random order, and not in the order of the list?
<civodul>they're tried in the order of the list
<civodul>it would be more difficult to make it random order ;-)
<civodul>it's still a good idea to add the /legacy one
<civodul>it can speed things up
<a_e>Well, in that case, I may as well drop the legacy thing.
<a_e>After ordering the mirrors.
<civodul> may be more reliable than a random mirror site, though
<a_e>Yes, I just decided to add this one, too, as a last resort.
*civodul adds the (gnu) module, fancy no?
<taylanub>hypes me up :P
<davexunit>what's in that module, civodul?
<davexunit>an ascii art GNU?
<civodul>not even!
<civodul>it's an aggregate module
<civodul>it re-exports some of the (gnu system ...) and (gnu services ...) things, for convenience
<davexunit>oh cool!
<davexunit>leaving work, bye
