<paroneayea>kete: and you? what are you hacking on? anything within the context of guix? or otherwise?
<kete>final exams, graduating with bachelors. borrowed the scheme book in case I need something to read after finals. could review changes to guix manual
<vmlinuz88>paroneayea I'd love to start hacking and helping out the Guix project. I'm familiar with scheme syntax but I don't know much about the API. I'm willing to learn, of course. Is there anything in particular that would be suitable for me?
<paroneayea>hey vmlinuz88, I might not be the best person to ask, I'm new to hacking myself!
<paroneayea>civodul, mark_weaver, and davexunit may have better ideas than I do
<vmlinuz88>when running the ./bootstrap command in guix directory, it says "autopoint: no such file or directory"
<vmlinuz88>ah, it looks like it's part of the gettext package.
<vmlinuz88>paroneayea Your guix install method is working like a charm :)
<marxy>I've attempted installing GuixSD a few times on the same PC (Different USBs, re-downloaded the image, etc.) and always get the same error-- that the build of system.drv failed. I'm not exactly sure where to go from this error message, though, and I was wondering if someone did... http://pastebin.com/3vG5GE4f
<rekado->re wordpress: it also works when run through php-fpm; it does not need Apache. It would be best if we didn't link these "servlets" too tightly with the HTTP server.
<civodul>i use it for mcron, privoxy, and a couple other things
<davexunit>civodul: how much abstraction do you feel is appropriate for guix system services? I have this postgresql-service, but I'm unsure how much extra work I should do around handling config for the user.
<davexunit>a postgresql.conf file is just a list of "key = value" lines, so I thought, "well, I'll just have the user pass in an list and write out the correct file"
