<ngz>Hello. I'm using guix (binary installation) on top of Debian stable. I cloned the git repo. When I move inside its root directory, and call, e.g., ./pre-inst-env guix package build something, I get an error about permission (bash: ./pre-inst-env: Operation not allowed). What am I missing?
<janneke>ngz: did you ./bootstrap; ./configure --localstatedir=/var; make?
<ngz>I didn't. However, I just tried and get a bunch of errors, the first one being ./bootstrap: 5: exec: autoreconf: not found
<civodul>iyzsong: it seems gnome-updates is built on x86
<civodul>iyzsong: could you check if the problems that mark mentioned have been fixed?
<ngz>civodul: Is configure:8000: checking whether /usr/lib/libgcrypt can be dynamically loaded result:no normal?
<rekado>re ruby-ansi: the problem is this: installing into parent path /gnu/store/is8536m4c9ks97r3jsiykl72zgpl4bps-ruby-ansi-1.5.0/lib/ruby/gems/2.3.0/gems/.index of /gnu/store/is8536m4c9ks97r3jsiykl72zgpl4bps-ruby-ansi-1.5.0/lib/ruby/gems/2.3.0/gems/ansi-1.5.0 is not allowed
<civodul>ngz: most likely because you are mixing the C lib from Debian and that from Guix
<ngz>civodul: You are most certainly right. However, I don't quite understand how it happened. I installed a fresh Debian. Installed Guix binary on top of it, cloned repo, and tried the ./bootstrap, etc. invocation.
<civodul>ngz: Guix uses Guile from Guix and its libc, which is different from that /usr/lib/libgcrypt.so is linked against
<iyzsong>civodul: push it as gnome-updates, since 'make assert-binaries-available' fails.. and I disable the spell checking for gedit-3.20 now, also it's true that the skipped gjs test may be a real problem. I have report them to upstream (aspell-devel and gnome bugzilla).
<jmd>So what am I supposed to pass as the first argument to package-output ?
<df_>it seems inevitable for things to get unweildy as guix grows more packages though?
<yoosty>speaking of package .scms.. I wanted to add the package "gnome-tweak-tool" and was wondering where in gnome.scm I should stick it? Are there any guidelines for where in a .scm to add a package?
<davexunit>yoosty: there's a patch on the mailing list for gnome-tweak-tool already
<davexunit>but in general, put the package where it makes sense to you
<civodul>and i like that they pay attention to "cosmetic" and UI stuff
<lfam>When building a package from git, does anyone ever get a failure like "No code for module (guix ui)"? Paraphrasing because I closed that terminal emulator. I had to run `make` even though things were working with the same commit a few prior.
<emyles>Hi, I have installed guix (on Arch Linux) and it works for root, now I want to set it up for my user as per "2.6.1 Locales" in the manual, but $ guix package -i glibc-locales gives a segfault, what can I do now?
<civodul>emyles: could you paste the whole "guix package" command and output?
