<lfam>Every few hours, it checks out head, evaluates the code, and builds the new packages. In the last few days it ran more slowly while we garbage collected old items in preparation for a new release, but I think it's running automatically again.
<ng0>of course I can be wrong, so if there's no one else adding their opinion/experience, I will leave it at nologin for now
<iyzsong>yeah, I agree share a same user do not harm much..
<ng0>i never had more than one user because of decentralized use, but it should work.
<ng0>in the last message (sorry, i have no gnu.org link, i have the archive locally) send at Date: Sat, 01 Oct 2016 07:49:36 +0800 you mention that it should just use a <git-configuration> object. is there a service I could look at (openssh maybe?) to understand what you meant?
<iyzsong>ng0: yes, i mean a single 'config' argument is enough, eg: dicod-service.
<Acou_Bass>gonna see if i can get FDE working... there seems to be a function for it in the configuration.scm now
<Acou_Bass>i had guix on my laptop for a bit but there were some packages/stuff missing that i would expect to have a relatively secure portable device, such as FDE, dnsmasq/crypt, so i installed nixos instead.. but now it all seems to be there, so back to scheme goodness i reckon :D
<baconicsynergy>i was having locale problems, so i installed glibc-locales and set GUIX_LOCPATH accordingly. this solved my locale issues, but now i cant use guix at all. it says "warning: failed to install locale: invaled argument"
<jmd>baconicsynergy: That is very strange. It has misspelt "invalid".
<lfam>We both try to follow security advisories and fix our packages as soon as possible
<buenouanq>I have more reason to trust Guix than anyone else.
<lfam>Well, we have fewer volunteers than Debian. Also, Debian has been patching their packages for many more years than us. If they fixed a security bug 10 years ago, we might not have fixed it yet, because we haven't noticed it.
<jmi2k>One question: if I want to build a package from a custom recipe how can I do it? I have the file prepared, but I can't figure out how to build it and install on GuixSD
<lfam>jmi2k: I recommend using the GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH environment variable to tell Guix where to look for your package. You could also use `guix build --file=`
<jmi2k>Fine, I'll try. Official documentation it's a bit misleading for the newcomer :D
<ng0>I no longer support this course that much, but it's nice to see they act on suggestions
<ng0>it could get challenging for them to be based on a fast moving target.
<ng0>https://www.torproject.org/docs/torbutton/index.html.en "Now that the Tor Browser includes a patched version of Firefox, and because we don't have enough developer resources to keep up with the accelerated Firefox release schedule, the toggle model of Torbutton is no longer supported. Users should be using Tor Browser, not installing Torbutton themselves."
<ng0>but then it could also help to keep up with development and adjust
<ng0>motivate people to contribute because the browser is more current
<ZombieChicken>I have to say, I like submitting bug reports for guix. Things actually *happen* when they are filed
<jmd>anyway, after I have booted from the image, I am in a new universe, yes? The one used to build the image is outside this universe.
<ng0>cool, so apparently in 2014 and 2013 at least 2 people already proposed and discussed about what I came up with for gnunet-fs and guix. Good to know that there's some past discussions I can read to not repeat questions/answers
<ng0>that's a good discussion. why was it never put to practice? are the guile bindings of gnunet the only outcome so far?
<ng0>Reading it all, and what I gathered before discovering this archive, it's not a trivial goal so there are maybe reasons why this is slow work in progress
<Acou_Bass>eey guys, slightly stupid question potentially XD i did guix system init to install guixSD to my laptop and it finnished without errors, *however* i had some problems with my grub configuration and so i want to run guix system reconfigure *on the installed system* from my liveCD... is this as simple as just chrooting in?
<ng0>lsat time i tried chroot I noticed for myself that I should take the irc log and file a bug
