<codemac>with nix-daemon, it complains about guile-bootstrap.drv not having the right output hash
<codemac>(sorry, was trying to type that follow up sentence quickly) guix works on my arch machine just fine, so I don't think it's a bug, but maybe a bug in my setup
<mark_weaver>what changed since it last worked? or did it never work on your nix-daemon setup?
<mark_weaver>also, an exact copy of the error message would be more helpful than a paraphrase.
<codemac>guix package: error: build failed: derivation ‘/nix/store/678j3bmn4kk3j4jxzkgazdcwapmbksh1-guile-bootstrap-2.0.drv’ has incorrect output ‘/gnu/store/d147rzxa7drpg8x8w4dcrpaq80v3fj11-guile-bootstrap-2.0’, should be ‘/nix/store/rzzifjycn6cqjvxw9fm0fi1646l37aas-guile-bootstrap-2.0’
<rekado>NiAsterisk: I have a gnunet-gtk package, but it segfaults...
<rekado>I brought this up on #gnunet but haven't gotten a response yet.
<rekado>I can send it to the list, but it needs debugging.
<NiAsterisk>ah, okay.. right, mine wasn't that complete, forgot that
<NiAsterisk>i might have questions about service composition and other things, but it's for something I am currently not working on. I try to take some notes and maybe ask at fosdem if there's time, or later on the mailinglist if I can't get it right. it's not really about services, but about further understanding the separation between guix and guixsd.
<jmd>Is there anything formal guix related happening at fosdem?
<NiAsterisk>although it would be best to just send it to the ML when I have thought through what I want to achieve and have remaining questions about how to do it.
<daviid>hello guix folks! I have 2 [unimportant] comments about the manual [html version]: (a) in the table of content, each entry has a dot preceeding the number, I think in the toc, the dot should removed; (b) all tables are left align with no indent at all, it would be a lot nicer to indent them like the 'code' snipsets are, imo.
<daviid>forgot to mention as well that all tables have an empty column in the middle, I wonder why. again, nothing important but I thought I'd share ...
<lfam>And, should I add one for taylan when I add one for myself?
<lfam>Or, perhaps Taylan left it off because he or she was the last author, and the last author does not need to declare the line break? In which case I would add one after taylan's line, and not one for myself
<civodul>lfam: "makeinfo --html guix.texi" should do it
<civodul>lfam: i think the line breaks are actually necessary; you can tell the difference by looking at guix.pdf
<lfam>So my previous contribution to the manual broke it :( Oops!
<NiAsterisk>If I would have tried to use guixsd with dialup internet as my first distro like I tried with gentoo in '99, it would've been equal to gentoo back then from the do it yourself to get help status. you basically need to hack it yourself or be online to get feedback and help^^ but it's easier to hack :)
<lfam>And you can't really break it once the first boot succeeds
<suitsmeveryfine>There I could explain what issues I have solved and those that remain on the macbook2,1
<NiAsterisk>lfam: sort of.. i mean the only thing where I really broke gentoo was when I did a thing which removed a package from the build chain (i wanted guile 2.0+).. this was broken even with booting from gentoo-minimal into it to repair it. there are rare chances of breaking it. but this is not gentoo focused, so offtopic :)
<lfam>NiAsterisk: I was wondering... does Gentoo protect against a failed libc upgrade? I know that if this fails on Debian you are basically screwed
<lfam>suitsmeveryfine: Yes, sending it to guix-devel is the next step. I would break it up into topics (FDE, libreboot, issues with your hardware, etc) and present it for feedback. Then, we can all think about what should change in the Guix codebase, what should go in the manual, etc. Perhaps mark_weaver has some notes to contribute as well. These are all things that should be integrated somehow, IMO..
<NiAsterisk>idk, i used it for about a year on 4 computers and getting back to something different took off some stress. it was fun though and I learned some things, about hardened-gentoo, etc. iirc if a build fails it does not get installed, and you could also somehow switch back to an older version of the package. there's also a legion of people working on stuff (but some dust collecting packages too)
