<mark_weaver>the machine in question has more than enough space to build the packages that I have in my personal profile, but I suspect that a hydra build slave needs much more.
<jxself>I seem to recall it was hundreds of gigabytes needed.
<jxself>But perhaps I'm not remembering correctly. It's been a while since seeing the numbers.
<mark_weaver>currently the machine has about 128G free, after building all of the packages in my personal profile. it may be that I'll need a larger disk.
<mark_weaver>there are a lot of builds on the machine that could be removed, but I don't like the way "guix gc" currently works, because if I did, the next time I built something it would have to build a lot of prerequisites first.
<mark_weaver>(I need a "guix gc" that protects anything that would need to be needed to build anything in current master)
<mark_weaver>well, that would almost work, but a few problems: (1) especially in the early bootstrap, not all of the needed derivations are easily specified on the command line, (2) I don't actually want to build everything yet; I just don't want to delete anything that would be useful for building something I might want to install or upgrade later.
