<alezost>I don't think it is more stable; it wasn't freezed or tested specially; it was just the time for the new release, so it was tagged. I always use "git pull" to have the latest available packages and guix code
<marusich>alezost, I'll probably do that too, but I haven't even been able to build gnu hello yet
<marusich>I want to go through the process of building Guix from source and then telling it to build gnu hello, as described in the the README/manual instructions, before I do much else.
<marusich>Otherwise, if it fails (which I'm sure it will until I get the package definition right), how else can I know I was doing things the right way?
<alezost>marusich: oh, I've never tried; I always rely on hydra :-)
<ennoausberlin>Hello. Right now I do a fresh install of guix 0.9, but occasionally I get a host name lookup error. Is it save to restart guix system init at this point or will I get problems in the future?
***samigarus is now known as oahong
<alezost>ennoausberlin: restarting "guix system init" should probably be save, but I don't actually know. What error is it; do you mean you forgot to specify 'host-name' field in 'operating-system' declaration?
<ennoausberlin>alezost No, it appears only occasionally during install. Sounds like a network problem. I had to redo guix system init around 15 times. He was claiming about missing derivatives, related to the former lookup problem
<ADFENO>.. I'm trying to install GuixSD on a i686 machine, and I have sucessfully written GuixSD to a USB thumb drive with Dd, but when I get to install the "cow-store" (I guess this is what is called), it isn't installed in the target partition, that is, it's simply not done (no "/root" is made). Also I would like to know if there is a way to tell GuixSD to install prebuilt packages from the repositories (like the ones that come from "Hydra.GNU.org", I guess this is
<efraim>oh my thats a lot of rebuilds for updating libpng
***tschwing_ is now known as tschwinge
<efraim>the link on the side for the 4 mailing lists brings you to a page with 5 mailing lists
<lfam>And I assume that is the reason that unpack phase of libpng is failing
<lfam>Oof, there will be a lot of rebuilding: Building the following 294 packages would ensure 608 dependent packages are rebuilt...
