<svetlana><svetlana> http://dpaste.com/021KN9J — 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?
<svetlana><jxself> It looks like a problem with downloading from CPAN, not with anything else? <Fulax> yes <Fulax> I got 503 error code when browsing search.cpan.org :(
<svetlana>What next? Wait for a next release? Or ask the guix package manager to update its thoughts on where to take packages from? (How do I do that?)
<DusXMT>svetlana: you could submit a patch to firstname.lastname@example.org , or report the bug to email@example.com if you don't mind waiting some time
<svetlana>DusXMT: I would submit a report. Do I need anything other than that paste and a summary of information from this conversation (a "search.cpan.org gives 503" note)?
<DusXMT>svetlana: I think that should be enough... although trying to download the file from the link works on my computer... (maybe it is blocked on sone parts of the world?)
<svetlana>Got that for "guix package -i screen". Will retry then I guess, since downloading it works for me manually too.
<DusXMT>50X errors are usually server errors afaik, so maybe the server was just having a bad time?
<svetlana>We'll know when if it starts working now. :)
<DusXMT>Yup, Wikipedia: "503 Service Unavailable: The service is currently unavailable (because it is overloaded or down for maintenance). Generally, this is a temporary state."
<jxself>And so indicates a problem with the website, not with the person's local computer or software. :)
<svetlana>it's sweating for some good few minutes now.
<svetlana>ah, 'cannot write: no space left on device'. 3GB free on the computer hard drive.
