<ng0>tp link has some fully compatible ones if you need a dongle with detachable / changable antenna
<mekeor`>i'd have to pay extra for shipping at thinkpengui, i guess. i live in europe
<Digitteknohippie>when guix system distributions get post-beta, full releases, will there be multiple desktop variants, multiple different purpose releases, and even, will there be a (relatively) easy respin function that produces custom iso, and have them included in releases/downloads too?
<buenouanq>Digitteknohippie: it changes how we should think about distros entirely
<Digitteknohippie>yep, but for out-of-the-box configurations for entry points to this guix world, for those seeking the familiar iso or img way...
<Digitteknohippie>is the first thing my non-enthusiasts see with guix going to be windowmaker ? ~ is a fear of mine. :3 or are we going to see everyone able to monkey-button release their config as iso. like, is there a script that does that? run it, and then you have a live / installable iso that a friend can use, with your daily use config.
<ZombieChicken>Digitteknohippie: Custom ISO images can be made with disk-image iirc. You can configure them the same way you do when installing things. You can also use vm(-image) to test that out
<marusich>buenouanq, I don't know the answer to your question, but if I were to guess, I would guess that perhaps "clear" is not needed in a bare bones system, and more importantly, you can add whatever packages you need by hacking your OS config, so it's not that big of a deal if it's missing - just add it!
<Petter>I'm trying to run Wireshark as a non-root user. However, the steps I've found to do this involves changing group of the binary and using `setcap`. However, I'm not allowed to change the group because the binary is on a Read-only file system.
<ng0>yesterday at the hacker space we talked about alternatives for the rather expensive privacy-whois I have at the moment, and it ended with dropping expensive domains and keeping one "normal" range domain, so I'll start commiting with that again and change mailmap to that soon. Sorry for all the mailmap noise, it ends with the next change. As I said, you never know when you will have less money in the future of
<ng0>I think notmuch still works when we disable the test. I just installed 0.23.2 and so far I got not error. I can still decrypt messages from within the emacs part (the only one we build atm). So I'd say I ask upstream if anyone has encountered similar issues in their test environment, and I'll send a patch for those who want to verify my findings. Whoever else uses notmuch here.
<ng0>now that the tests are disabled, should I delete the 'prepare-test-environment phase or should I keep it around so that it gets used again when the tests all work again?
<ng0>civodul: I think I asked a question or opened a bug about python import about something I had when I tried searx first, via import. I should not import it from pypi, but this was something not very usable imo:
<jmd>Is it possible to tell guix pull where to pull from?
<ng0>i was distracted by checking wether our house or any of the neighbor houses are burning or whatever the reason for the entire street with firefighter cars being filled, but I think I might have a working mumble later
<rekado>you can run the bash script with “bash the-script”, or by changing the shebang line to “#!/home/me/.guix-profile/bin/bash”, or by installing a symlink from /bin/bash to /run/current-system/profile/bin/bash
<pi3141592>hi, am installing guixsd for the first time. a while after running guix system init command, one of the packages could not be downloaded (i forget which one). I re-ran the command with --fallback as instructed, but now it looks like it is trying to compile the entire gnome desktop
<jmi2k_>When you use --fallback, you are telling guix to compile packages instead of using cached binaries
<kyamashita>pi3141592: It probably *is* compiling the entire gnome desktop. The package build server probably garbage collected the gnome binaries (hence the download error), and so you must build them from source.
<baconicsynergy>i thought --fallback only compiled the ones it couldn't find subs for?
