<paroneayea>davexunit: I'm hanging out in guix because I'm trying to figure out how deployment stuff will work for mediagoblin's premium hosting stuff. We'll probably use a debianoid rather than guix at this stage, but I'm really interested in the approaches guix takes
<Svetlana>it keeps listing a lot of .o files at me but no more make's rubbish output
***mst_ is now known as mst
<DusXMT>Is there a way to create patches for guix packages which create files? I can create a patch, and if I import it with "$ patch < file.patch", it creates the file, but in guix, it says "can't find file to patch at input line n"
<civodul>DusXMT: by default Guix expects patches that can be applied with -p1 from within the source tree
<civodul>so perhaps that's the reason you're seeing this error
<leth>is there a reason you have to unmount /mnt at the end of the installation of guix?
<DusXMT>civodul: The program I'm trying to package for Guix fails the configure step as it can't determine where to put recovery files. It tests for /var/tmp, /var/preserve and /usr/tmp, using the first one which exists and is writable. I can make it assume the correct option, but I myself don't know which is
<DusXMT>So, where should temporary files, which should be preserved over reboots, be stored?
<DusXMT>okay, sent. This was my first package definition, so I'm sorry if I did something wrong in it
<leth>after installing guix from an usbv it fails with 'failed to resolv partition label "root"' the partition is albled root, and the config is from the example on on the usb image. i've also tried using uuid which didn't work.
<civodul>leth: Svetlana reported that on their laptop the kernel would take more than 15 seconds to detect the USB drive, leading to the error above
<leth>well i do run stumpwm but i'm not sure that would count.
<leth>what i want is a lisp replacement of Xorg i guess,
<leth>i want to replace everything with a lisp verison i guess.
<tadni>leth: Guile-wm has expressed interest of porting to wayland, as well as writing a graphic toolkit for Emacs.
<tadni>I don't see the point of rewriting xorg in lisp, for several reasons.
<leth>well not really a rewrite of xorg in lisp, just something that could replace it.
<leth>a graphic toolkit for emacs might be interesting.
<tadni>leth: Well, assuming that we had a wayland compositor in guile, which guile-wm might deliver at some point -- you practically are replacing xorg with "lisp" in the fact that wayland is just a protocol.
