<Svetlana>[04:49:55] <mark_weaver> you could boot the USB stick from any working grub, if you had one.
<Svetlana>[04:50:27] <mark_weaver> just type 'c' from the grub menu to get a command prompt, and then type: configfile (usb0,0)/boot/grub/grub.cfg
<Svetlana>I did it and it took me to a new empty grub prompt. How do I get it to move from here, i.e. to actually boot? I read 'help' for a minute and tried 'boot', but it told me I need to load a kernel first.
<tadni>davexunit: Heh, didn's notice the wordplay till now. :^)
<tadni>It would be nice, if there was some foundation or even a foss centered startup in place that supported a suite of tools that would be comparable for the average school to impliment.
<tadni>I think school centered software, is one of the last great areas where free software has failed to roam and a lot of that has to do with textbooks and the "deals" they get on a auth code with them.
<tadni>Free Culture text books would be another needed component I think.
<tadni>I mean, private and public higher-level education have a lot in common -- inherently.
<davexunit>it seems like a no win situation: the government is incompetent and corrupt, so public services are run poorly. the private sector is greedy and corrupt, so private services are for the wealthy only.
<XexonixXexillion>How do I add a user to the audio group? I added "audio" to the user's list of supplementary groups, but after running guix reconfigure, they've still not been added to the audio group. Do I need to run something else?
<waxysubs>XexonixXexillion: it's likely that if the user already exists, the supplemental groups will be updated. for now, I suggest you edit /etc/group manually.
<waxysubs>(or run the appropriate user tool; I always forget because I just edit /etc/group myself)
