<vmlinuz88>davexunit Thank you; I figured as much. Also, I'm running guix as a standalone on Fedora 21; I attempted to install a package (dfc) and received the following error: Failing tests: 17: test_option_b (2 failures).
<davexunit>vmlinuz88: this failure was when compiling dfc?
<vmlinuz88>I also looked at the log for test_option_b, and it said "File archive1.tar has size 3072, expected 2048" and "bsdtar does not pad archives written directly to regular files"
<jdahm>basic question: I'm trying to install guix from the latest .xz image directly to a virtual machine using gnome-boxes, but that only allows using .iso and devices. I've tried mounting with mount -o loop gsd.... but mount can't determine the fs type that way. I've also tried renaming it to .iso but that leads to a corruption error. Is there an easy way to do this without a thumb drive handy?
<vmlinuz88>davexunit Also, I thought guix retrieves binary packages from hydra by default, but it appears that it is trying to build the dfc package. Is there something I need to do specifically to get binaries?
<paroneayea>"There are two things to note in the second version: the store parameter is now implicit, and the monadic value returned by package-file—a wrapper around package-derivation and derivation->output-path—is bound using mlet instead of plain let."
<davexunit>I don't know why they even brought it up without mentioning guix
<davexunit>"I read the home page summary, so now I'm going to assume that they hate systemd and laugh at it."
<rekado_>at what point did people agree on systemd as the only thing you should ever need? I remember that it was not like that when pulseaudio appeared. I wonder if there's a lesson to be learned.
<paroneayea>davexunit: which is why dmd came after systemd amirite??? ;)
<davexunit>civodul traveled back to 2003 to create dmd under a psuedonym, he then left the project dormant so that he could pick it back up in 2013 to make it seem like he wasn't just another systemd hater.
<davexunit>if anyone here is interested in building static sites with Guile, take a look. :)
<paroneayea>sirgazil: can't speak really for the FSF but it might be worth talking to them about it. I did talk to John recently about the possibility of Guile doing some fundraiser stuff and using the FSF's infrastructure and I know he was interested in talking about htat
<paroneayea>so anyway, I think the possibility of talking about it is open :)
