<suitsmeveryfine>I installed the program as a normal user but the program wants to read a config file from /etc/thinkfan.conf. What is the correct procedure: to just create the config file as sudo or maybe to install thinkfan itself as root?
<medima>I'm just getting started. I've built a new Arch vm and I'm building guix on top
<medima>I've been trying to build packages, emacs etc. but I'm getting errors saying it can't build dependencies
<medima>I've been reading through the info and trying to make sure everything is set up properly
<medima>I'm getting a warning about my locales. I need glibc-locales to set them up but guix can't build the dependencies for glibc-locales
<jlicht>could you post a log of the messages you are getting?
<medima>warning: failed to install locale: Invalid argument
<medima>I'm also getting a note: source file /usr/share/guile/2.0/sxml/ssax/input-parse.scm newer than compiled /usr/lib/guile/2.0/ccache/sxml/ssax/input-parse.go
<jlicht>medima: for me that was indeed fixed by installing glibc-locales and properly setting GUIX_LOCPATH
<jlicht>medima: are you sure there are no other errors?
<medima>I'm running 'guix package -i glibc-locales' I'll let you know what the error is. I forgot to write it down
<medima>From memory the error says cannot build dependency xyz
<jlicht>medima: depending on your level of comfort with building packages, you could try to build that specific package via `guix build --keep-failed xyz`. It should give you a less unclear error message then.
<roelj>I'm preparing for a GuixSD installation. Do I need to add the packages's modules to the use-modules when I use them in the operating-system configuration, or are package definitions found some other way?
<davexunit>roelj: they are just plain ol' guile objects, so yes.
<roelj>So I have my config file that I think is complete. Can I quickly create a VM image so that I can try it?
<roelj>Is it just 'guix system vm /path/to/my/file.scm'?
<roelj>And, does anyone have experience with something other than ext4 as the filesystem?
