<bullets>so... I was sondering how I can work around this I'm just following the instructions on the manual
<jololo>Hey! I'm working on the installation and after running "guix system init ..." for the first time, was many megabytes through before I got a "guix system: error: build failed: ... usually happens due to networking issues try '--fallback'" Should that command be the same "guix system init" command with '--fallback' tagged on or another command with '--fallback'?
<Acou_Bass>slightly dumb question here - im starting work on a new windowmaker package (never made a guix package before) - i did guix environment windowmaker then guix edit windowmaker however emacs is telling me the .scm file is read-only? am i supposed to do this as root? XD
<rekado>jmarciano: as I wrote you'd link your "env" binary to /usr/bin/env.
<rekado>jmarciano: in general you shouldn't use paths to store items directly.
<rekado>jmarciano: when you use random store items it may well be that they disappear in the future by garbage collection.
<rekado>only link to stuff that has been installed into profiles
<jmarciano>I am not yet on GuixSD, I did not know I can link then, but yes, if I can link like that, it is good.
<jmarciano>maybe that becomes standard practice of future GuixSD users, there should be package for such linking, that also links like that become functional.
<jmarciano>Once I have PostgreSQL, IceWM, ROX, all required modules, encrypted /tmp /home swap, I am switching. Right now I cannot break the communication with too many people, my system is sending them emails from PostgreSQL.
<davexunit>rain1: my suggestion applies only to containers
<davexunit>given that you got permission denied, you are not using a container.
<davexunit>only root can alter the root file system like that
