<C-Keen>hi folks! I have installed the guix binary on top of a debian system and followed the installation instructions. However I get a "warning: failed to install locale: Invalid argument" upon guix invocation. What's missing?
<sneek>I last saw iyzsong on Sep 13 at 10:45 am UTC, saying: I update libtasn1 to 4.6 in 'core-updates', but it break a test of gnutls, with a report email sent to the gnutls and libtasn1 ML. If the full build of 'core-updates' start, I'll stop doing push packages updates, and better revert the libtasn1 update right?.
<davexunit>all I know is that the way we have xfce configured, it already looks in our profile for these things
<bavier1>I was investigating the GHC runpath question a bit. I think we can give our ghc package a GHC_PACKAGE_PATH native-search-path, tweak the haskell-build-system just a bit, and then we could work with haskell packages without any input propagation
<bavier1>I think we just need to get search-path-specification's 'file-pattern' to work on directory names
<rekado>goglosh: for all my machines I used a wired connection. (My laptops don't have functional wireless cards.)
<civodul>rekado: i never fully understood the deal with GraphicsMagick vs ImageMagick
<zwets>Question from a newbie: I have installed guix 0.8.3 from binary according to the steps in the manual. Root has its guix-profile set up and all works fine. Now to set up guix in my regular user account, I expected this would do the trick: ~root/.guix-profile/bin/guix package -i guix. However this installs guix-0.8.2.72cd8ec. Why doesn't it link to the 0.8.3 which is installed for root?
<davexunit>zwets: guix 0.8.3 can't possibly know the hash of itself.
<davexunit>so that 0.8.2 version is a snapshot just prior to the 0.8.3 release
<davexunit>to get the latest version of the guix master branch, you can run 'guix pull'
<davexunit>but not required unless there's a bug fix or package update that you need.
<davexunit>rekado: I did just look at the FFI patch because I'm personally interested in that one. I think it's okay to enable the tests and do the redundant compilation. there's no way to fix that AFAIK.
<rekado>davexunit: but we already have a libffi package.
<rekado>nowhere else in the ruby-ffi package do I have to compile this.
<zwets>davexunit: thanks! It makes sense that guix 0.8.3 can't know the hash of itself. However, when I run as root: guix package --list-installed, this gives "guix 0.8.3 out /gnu/store/85nyj4lz480mxaj5szffli3c1k2rbhfn-guix-0.8.3"
