<sir123>Hey guys, I managed to have a successful install :) I used /dev/sda3 as the partition it was looking for, now it works great. My only issue is how to install programs in the new system. How do I use the USB environment to install programs in the new system in my non-privileged user? Cow-store doesn't link the program to the profile, or under /bin. Does anyone have any ideas? It seems the only program in the system is sh under /bi
<davexunit>sir123: why not install programs as your user from the booted system?
<taylanub>anyone know why I'd get ';;; ERROR: In procedure dynamic-link: file: "/gnu/store/...-gnutls-3.3.12/lib/guile/2.0/guile-gnutls-v-2", message: "file not found"' when guix tries to download via HTTPS?
<davexunit>taylanub: is there actually a .so file there?
<civodul>davexunit: is it 'guix download' or some other command?
<rigelk>not sure about that, but does the GSD have drivers for SCSI/SAS HDDs ? it might be a problem on old servers
<paroneayea>I wonder if I can get a guilemacs package for guix working.
<jxself>IIRC, the kernel named Linux has supported serial attached SCSI devices for at least ten years.
<DusXMT>rigelk: the drivers are probably there, but they're most probably not included in the default initrd; you have to find how the module is called and add it into your system definition's initrd field, check the documentation for details (the initrd section)
<alezost>Great, no problem! Yeah, there are several ways of using guix and thus its emacs interface: on GuixSD 0.8.1 it should work out of the box. For guix installed on top of another distro you need those 2 lines mentioned in the manual. Apparently for this case (without installing) one also needs to change `guix-load-path' var. Thanks for the patience!
