<mark_weaver>sirgazil: try disabling all your extensions/plugins, restarting the browser, and then trying again. if that works, you can enable the exstensions one by one to determine which is the culprit.
<grothoffhome>Note that this is after the first installation; when I tried to install with X from USB, it just died (OOM, swapping to USB or something terrible like that)
<mark_weaver>grothoffhome: if (gnu system nss) doesn't exist you've got a broken guix installation. tell me about the 'guix' you are using to run 'guix system ...' ?
<grothoffhome>So right now, I have a 'base' system, but when I try to reconfigure to add X, it hates me.
<rekado>toothbrush0: I don't like magical keyrings either. It's a remnant from the days that I discovered that I'm already using keyrings (without noticing). I should try the "gpg -d" route instead. Seems simpler.
<toothbrush0>rekado: i went through the same process :) but this still feels like a hack to me..
<toothbrush0>notably i'm having a bunch of issues getting it to play nicely with guix
<toothbrush0>a little while ago the issue of password managers was discussed. i'm using lastpass, but really don't like that (since it's in the magical keyring category)... does anyone have another setup which preferably is backed by a simple .gpg file but allows easy pasting into web forms?
<mark_weaver>grothoffhome: unfortunately it's a bug in the public API of useradd. 'useradd' stores the information on what the mode should be, in the actual filesystem mode bits in the skeleton (template) directory. this is fine for most distros, but at odds with the design of NixOS and Guix, which requires a read-only store.
<davexunit>despite all of this, I still feel sort of compelled to use my own custom tool...
<mark_weaver>fixing 'useradd' would require inventing a new way to specify the file permissions. anyway, 'useradd' is incompatible with the notion in GuixSD that the users are specified declaratively in the OS configuration.
<alexshendi>Hi, one more noob question. How do I start/configure CUPS under GuixSD?
<davexunit>mark_weaver: we did. my dotfiles didn't have that problem when I did a fresh install of 0.8.2
<mark_weaver>sneek: later tell grothoffhome: you might want to look at the diffs between your current dot files and what's in /run/current-system/etc/skel. IIRC, we've made some improvements there since 0.8.1.
