<jgrant>davexunit: I'm more-so excited in that my transfer school I'm attending in the Fall or next Spring, their course is like 85% C++ and this looks like a much nicer alterative to practice in my freetime.
<jgrant>_`_: Hm, I wonder why it's not opting to use such things on this GSD install and complaining about LLVM... I have the whole toolchain for GCC.
<davexunit>is there a configure switch you need to turn on?
<jgrant>Not sure; I'm also sure it never helps when I pick to do these things when I'm half asleep. :^P
<davexunit>civodul: I've been trying to think of how to best create a UI in the web browser that allows for the things that guix.el does. it's tricky!
<davexunit>for one thing, guix.el maps object addresses to packages for unique identification, but I'm not in love with that because I'd prefer that URIs to guix-web remain valid when the web server is rebooted.
<davexunit>computing the derivation for every package in the system and using the hash would work, but it seems too costly and slow. I guess it's the only way, though.
<civodul>yes, that may be the only persistent and unique ID
<civodul>oh but "install" actually does something,!
