<jgrant>Okay, I'm going to be smart and actually plan to go to bed. Peace, hope you figure it out DusXMT. o/
<rekado>ardour and jack2 both use a build system made from waf, a meta build system.
<rekado>ardour and jack2 both are rather sane in that they use common build phase names (like "configure", "build" and "install"), but waf allows for any name.
<rekado>I wonder if the default case for waf deserves its own build system.
<rekado>essentially it's just the default build phase names passed as arguments to ./waf
<DusXMT>Because I'm still rather new to Scheme and Guix, could someone more experienced took at what I wrote and say if I'm doing it the right way? (it works, by the way, but I'm sure I could've done things better): http://paste.lisp.org/display/145369
<mark_weaver>jgrant: it's good that you started with "I am not an expert", but that's an example of a question that you probably shouldn't have tried to answer at all.
<mark_weaver>if everyone on this channel jumped in to try to answer every question, even if they had no clue, do you know what this channel would be like?
<mark_weaver>DusXMT: okay, thanks for reporting it. it turns out that 'netpbm' is only package that uses the 'svn-fetch' origin method, so I'm guessing that it's not deterministic (on the assumption the Andreas tested 7d8379a76 properly before pushing it).
<jgrant>I'm having an issue trying to run skribilo from guix, on my hostmachine. When I try to run something .guix-profile/bin/skribilo hello.skb -o hello.pdf it complains that setlocale in an unknown argument.
<civodul>jgrant: you probably need to define $LOCPATH to point to your libc's locales
<mark_weaver>civodul: there is an issue with LOCPATH though: I don't see how to make my login bash initialize locales properly.
<mark_weaver>it apparently tries to load locales before loading the RC files.
<mark_weaver>so, on my non-GSD machines (novena and yeeloong), I always see errors about locales when logging in.
