<lfam>For both the bare-bones and the desktop, I attempt `guix environment --ad-hoc curl` after first boot. It works without issue in the bare-bones system. In the desktop sytem, it gets to the point where it runs the bootstrap guile. Then, there is a series of warnings about unbound variables in download.scm (make-session etc) and then it fails when it can't find /etc/resolv.conf
<lfam>It works after `dhclient eth0`, so I guess that wicd is not running dhclient successfully, or at all
<civodul>you should try running wicd-client or similar to see
<lfam>How can I pass arguments to the kernel in GuixSD?
<mark_weaver>lfam: see the 'kernel-arguments' field of the operating-system configuration. See 'operating-system' Reference in the manual, section 7.2.2
<lfam>Thanks mark_weaver. Hey, did you get a chance to look at the w3m changes?
<mark_weaver>lfam: not yet, but if it works for you I don't doubt it will work for me too. thank you!
<lfam>Any idea how to configure the size of the Linux console in GuixSD? I think it's at 640x480 by default. I've been trying some different values to the "vga=" kernel parameter but they really don't do the right thing
<mark_weaver>lfam: on my machines the kernel seems to automatically determine the right resolution
<lfam>I guess because this is in qemu it doesn't work as expected
<lfam>The weird thing is that the grub menu is larger than the console
<rekado>the big tarball contains the very same sources that I could also get from SVN + git.
<rekado>no additional patches as far as I can tell.
<rekado>another problem is where to put the package expressions; they need texinfo for building docs (as they are just SVN/git checkouts and do not contain built docs), so I cannot add them to gcc or cross-base, or else there would be a cycle.
