<davexunit>whoa, the guix system reconfigure patch that civodul pushed a couple hours agois awesome!
*davexunit just booted guix on bare metal
<davexunit>I couldn't even figure out how to shut my computer down, but it was cool!
<zerwas>davexunit: haha why couldn't you figure it out? No "halt" or "shutdown" available?
<davexunit>zerwas: no shutdown, I actually didn't check for halt.
<davexunit>no poweroff, either.
<zerwas>Ctrl+Alt+Del could do the trick for a proper reboot
<davexunit>I'm building another image in hopes that I can get networking to work.
<davexunit>I had no eth0 with this image.
<davexunit>I bet I didn't fix the issue, but I changed the static IP settings to be valid.
<davexunit>there's no DHCP networking service and I'm not feeling adventurous enough to write my own.
<davexunit>I'm just happy that it booted. I was amazed.
<zerwas>Getting closer to a fully functional operating system \\o/
<davexunit>yeah, it just needs a few more conveniences and it will be good enough to dual-boot or something.
<civodul>Hello Guix!
<phant0mas>good morning
<jmd>How can I get package -l (or similar command) to show the synopsis and/or descriptions?
<civodul>jmd: i use "guix package -s '' | recsel -p synopsis" or similar
<civodul>"guix package -A" just shows one line per package
<civodul>"guix package -s" gives all the details
<jmd>guix package -s guix | recsel -P description | cockney
<jmd>guix package -i talkfilters
<civodul>aah, i see your message now :-)
<jmd>Oh right. Not pushed yet.
<civodul>that looks fun, i'll give it a try
<TonyGazelle>Anyone around?
<jmd>TonyGazelle: No. Noone at all.
<TonyGazelle>Fair enough.
<TonyGazelle>I just discovered this project and thought it was neat. So figured
<TonyGazelle>I would check out the irc.
<TonyGazelle>Well you folks are probably relatively busy. Just peaked my interest is all. Not trying to be a bother.
<Steap>Can we finally use the Debian libgcrypt when running configure ?
<Steap>Not sure whether this has been patched
<TonyGazelle>Quick question for you Steap. Say I wanted to test out guix, could I make a vm of something suck as a minimal slack install, and then git guix?
<TonyGazelle>It seems as though it would work theoretically
<Steap>I do my dev in a Debian VM
<TonyGazelle>ok nice
<TonyGazelle>Im gonna head off for now. I'll be back later after I sort that.
<civodul>sneek: botsnack
<TonyGazelle>probably been covered. but google to no avail. 'error: failed to connect to `/usr/local/var/guix/daemon-socket/socket':No such file or directory
<TonyGazelle>nvm. looking in manual under installation and setting up daemon
<TonyGazelle>all success so far after that silly mistake. will keep an eye out for anything that causes trouble.
<zerwas>TonyGazelle: If you are on Debian/Ubuntu, this might help:
<TonyGazelle>thx but i got it fixed by reading the documentation. i'm testing this out on slax as well since it has no package manager to begin with. keeping it simple.
<zerwas>Alright :)
<civodul>"sudo wget -O /etc/init.d/guixd"
<civodul>wild :-)
<zerwas>Yeah, it's wild. Unfortunately sriharsha didn't publish the init script in a single file on It's from
<civodul>oh, i see
