*davexunit rewrites the ruby build system to incorporate the good parts from nixpkgs
<civodul>Hello Guix!
<Ulrar>Hi !
<civodul>sneek: later tell mongrol did you manage to run Xorg in "qemu -vga std"? i get "mmap fbmem: Invalid argument"
<sneek>Got it.
<jmd>It seems that the command-line completion has been disabled in guix's bash. How so?
<DusXMT>jmd: I had a similar problem where the SHELL variable wasn't propagated and xterm used /bin/sh, which now points at a (I think) reduced version of bash. Try checking if this isn't the same issue
<DusXMT>i.e. /bin/sh now points at /gnu/store/*-bash-*/bin/sh instead of /gnu/store/*-bash-*/bin/bash , and that made a difference for me
<jmd>Hmm. Maybe you're right.
<jmd>echo $SHELL gives /bin/bash
<tadni>I've come to worry more and more about,
<davexunit>I'm not worried about that
<tadni>Do we have the potential of them taking legal action against use, if GNU Guix get's sufficiently enough press?
<davexunit>they are very different things.
<tadni>davexunit: Yeah, but I've asked many people about this now -- and with no prior information people seem to default and think Guix is a way to make guis in X... which is similar to what RTOS Guix does.
*tadni may very well be worrying over nothing, but it does make him uneasy.
<jmd>Does the bash in git have a fix for the shellshock thingy?
<DusXMT>jmd: Yup, the fixes were put in rather quickly
<jmd>Oh good.
<SideEffffECt>hello, everybody,
<sneek>SideEffffECt, you have 1 message.
<sneek>SideEffffECt, civodul says: please bring up the determinism issue to
<SideEffffECt>I couldn't not notice that you are discussing alternative name for *bag*
<SideEffffECt>I know it's a petty topic, but anyway, here are my 2 ยข
<SideEffffECt>how about calling it *bundle*, could that work? :)
<davexunit>I think bag is a fine name.
<jmd>davexunit: Then you wont object if I call you by that name, YOU BAG!
<davexunit>not at all :)
