<cocomberrr>Hi all. I've installed Guix a minute ago along with a few packages etc. I'm ready to test it now as I have a working system. I'm failing to understand though how I can use the X session and open a window or something.
<DusXMT>Interesting fact: Did you know that GnuTLS (the maintained version) isn't a GNU project anymore? The maintainers disbanded the GNU version. (this isn't to cause frowns, just an interesting fact)
<sirgazil>civodul: I haven't make any progress on the website implementation because I'm trying to get a computer to install GuixSD. (I'd like to make things for GuixSD using GuixSD :)
<alxsp>civodul: the debian project has now deterministic reproducible builds, it's done by recreating an environment and using virtual machines, https://gitian.org/ would be an example of such build system, it uses ruby as scripting tool and vagrant/virtualbox as VM. It would be nice to have (possible voluntary) build binary packages in guix.
<civodul>alxsp: we have a build farm at hydra.gnu.org, and users can also build on their own machines
<civodul>the build environment is isolated, which facilitates reproducibility
<alxsp>civodul: the guile implementation of a deployment manager (such as chef) would be needed for that. I guess some of such functional are already present in guix.
<alxsp>civodul: is it byte-to-byte identical? would it be secure to install a package build this way from untrusted source?
<civodul>alxsp: it's not always bit-identical, for the same reasons that the Debian people identified: some packages do not build determinstically
