<rekado>civodul: GTK looks in versioned directories under the lib path. The same variable is respected by all versions of GTK, though, so obviously setting it is not an option, which is why I suggested adding support for GTK3_PATH and GTK2_PATH variables.
<rekado>do you prefer prefixing the custom variable names with "GUIX_"?
<rekado>(the above is needed to make GTK themes and input methods like IBus work with different versions of GTK.)
<taylanub>karhunguixi: a variety of information from your Guix usage is stored there, like your profiles
<taylanub>you can peek into it to get a feeling of the sort of information that goes there. I'm not sure if there's a really clear-cut rule for it.
<karhunguixi>i won't mess up my installation now if i do weird stuff in the git dir and build with ./pre-inst-env ?
<taylanub>if you did 'make install' then no, changes in the git directory shouldn't affect your installation, though it might make you unable to run 'make uninstall' (or cause 'make uninstall's actions to be out-of-sync with what 'make install' had done)

<amz3>I'm running guix on top of debian, I managed to compile sly via autoconf and when I try to run a example program it crash with the following error
