***starchy is now known as starchild
<jxself>Guix really uses initrd not initramfs?
<jxself>Regarding the booting problem this seems provide a good example of entire directories to include:
<jxself>This is probably better than copying specific things?
<davexunit>oh cool, thanks for the link
<davexunit>hmmmm where is ldconfig located...
<davexunit>`sudo find /gnu/store -name ldconfig` turns up nothing
<davexunit>I'm trying to package wireless-tools, didn't realize that it wasn't already packaged.
<davexunit>I almost have it working, but it can't load at runtime
<davexunit>I'm not sure how to tell programs like iwconfig explicitly where to load libiw from, since the package contains libiw, it isn't an input.
<davexunit>I tried setting LIBRARY_PATH to /home/dave/.guix-profile/lib as well
<davexunit>yeah! got it!
<davexunit>(setenv "LDFLAGS" (string-append "-Wl,-rpath -Wl," out "/lib"))
<svetlana> — can't install perl, trying to install gnu screen. (I finally learned to copy-paste text from guix's console by runing it in a tty with gpm.) is there anything I can do about the error?
***starchy is now known as starchild
<jxself>It looks like a problem with downloading from CPAN, not with anything else?
<Fulax>I got 503 error code when browsing :(
<jxself>Is there no recording of civodul's FOSDEM talk? I've tried looking for it on the FOSDEM site and am coming up empty.
<davexunit>jxself: one sec, I have watched it...
<davexunit>jxself ^
<jxself>Thanks, davexunit.
<davexunit>I am adding a custom phase to a package defintion, in which I would like to reference the version of the package that I'm building.
<davexunit>I have no idea how to do it
<davexunit>I tried adding (guix packages) to the list of modules that are loaded, but it says that it cannot be found :(
<davexunit>I was hoping to be able to use (package-version foo), but it doesn't seem to work that way.
<waxysubs>davexunit: one option: use 'let' to bind the version number outside of the package form, and then use unquote to retrieve it in the code snippets where it's needed.
<waxysubs>(this is mark_weaver)
<waxysubs>gotta run...
<davexunit>waxysubs: yeah, that would work.
