<fps>oh ok, there's a note in the contributing page following the link.. emails, ok :)
<rekado>fps: to send a bug report you can write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
<alezost>fps: I have my guix git clone at "~/src/guix", so with (setq guix-directory "~/src/guix") "M-x guix-edit <pkg>" brings me to a pkg file in that git dir
<alezost>fps: "/etc/config.scm" was just an example. For me it seems very strange to put it there though
<fps>alezost: cool.. will try cloning the repo and see how that goes..
<fps>alezost: yeah, it became clear to me from you generous people's comments that it's just a suggestion.. maybe a clarifying statement in the manual would help
<alezost>fps: re "rebooting after guix reconfigure": yes, it is expected; AFAIK there are plans to add support for using a fresh system right away, but currently you need to reboot to have a new system after guix reconfigure
<fps>whcih doesn't hurt so much since i disable the menu and toolbars usually anyways
<rekado>fps: you may need to install one of the icon themes.
<fps>rekado: ok. i actually don't, since i have no need for icons in emacs, but other apps might need them?
<kmicu>fps: why fonts in your screen shot are so ugly? :)
<fps>alezost: about the point of having packages in the user profile vs. system. i'm tinkering with it in a vm and once ready might move it over to my real hd. wouldn't it then be useful to have all that stuff available immediately just by using the config.scm i created?
<alezost>fps: analogously to a system config, it is also possible to make a "user config" - a scheme file with manifest. So after "guix package --manifest=/path/to/my-user-manifest.scm" your user profile will be populated by the packages you want.
<lfam>I can apply the patch by hand against the source tarball I downloaded, but it fails when done from within the build process against what should be the same tarball. The matcher can't find the hunks to match against
<lfam>Well, not the tarball, but the unpacked tarball
<davexunit>lfam: tar xf $(guix build -S the-package); cd the-package; path -p1 whatever.patch
<davexunit>someone reported an issue with the guix-environment-container.sh test. it's a valid issue. for some reason the '/' mount point shows up in the output of a file we count the lines of.dsnjkl;cdgfhj,k.l gsdtuilo gasdfghjyuil sdgfuil qweaf qguip
