<tadni`>So, can I ideally load a whole bunch of packages via (gnu packages '(emacs conkeror ratpoison etc etc etc)) over (gnu packages emacs) (gnu packages conkeror) (gnu packages ratposion) etc etc, in a config file?
<civodul>jmd: this time it's really getting too complicated :-/
<nkar>duncankl: if you can live with only /home being encrypted, it already works
<duncankl>sounds good enough, is that what you've stuck with?
<duncankl>noticed that wpa-supplicant is in the package list, have people had success with wifi?
<nkar>duncankl: I'm planning to wait a little bit hoping that someone provides some hints. if not, I'll encrypt just /home. also, I now have a motherboard which is compatible with libreboot, which allows to encrypt everything (even /boot), so I'm hoping to try that as well
<civodul>nkar, duncankl: i just replied to the bug report with an idea to get more info
<civodul>would be great if one of you could take the time to try it out
<civodul>nully: it seems that hydra.gnu.org is abnormally slow these days, any idea what it could be?
<guixnoob>hi guys! can someone tell why this warning appears when I try to install some packages: substitute-binary: guix substitute-binary: warning: ACL for archive imports seems to be uninitialized, substitutes may be unavailable
<duncankl>just replied to the cryptsetup bug, hope I got the gnu bug tracker to accept it
<tadni`>But yeah, I'm not sure of an argument against such a thing being included upstream. Especially since you could still do either or, or both in the same config file regardless.
<taylanub>I wonder, has it been considered to call the distribution "Guix GNU", akin to how some GNU/Linux distros call themselves "Foo Linux"? :P
<taylanub>but I guess Felipe López &co. would not be satisfied, because it would get shortened to "Guix" all too often .. which I kind of have to agree with as well; it's somehow insatisfactory.
<tadni`>taylanub: I mean too, an issue there is the software stack for the GNU Distro is not just Guix. Dmd is also a relevant piece of tech. Calling it simply GNU, makes it clear theat the core parts are being maintained by GNU in some way.
<bavier`>so, I've got a source url that appears to send `guix download` into an infinite loop, but wget seems to do just fine. Any ideas?
<bavier`>the given url redirects to a second url, which redirects to the first, and so on. I think `guix download` continues to follow these redirects, whereas wget (and icecat, etc) "reuse [the] existing connection"
<nkar>but why does it redirect guile while allowing wget to download?
