<atw>couple of questions about audio: is pulseaudio the only option? should I expect audio to work immediately after installing, e.g. mpg123?
<paroneayea>atw: some programs require pulseaudio, but generally if so they'll start it on their own in that case. if a program isn't compiled requireing pulseaudio support, it'll just pipe through vanilla alsa
<rekado_>jmd: looks like there should be an index.html pointing at 0-9.html
<jmd>We should invent some protocol to shut lint up when we know it's wrong.
<alezost>sturm: there is no way to find a package by file it contains; the best you can do is to search your local store (in a hope that it contains a file you want), like: "find /gnu/store -name '<file-name>'"
<jmd>alezost: Having such a feature would be nice.
<alezost>jmd: I agree; this conversation raised on irc from time to time, IIUC there is no understanding how to implement it
<alezost>it's the feature that I miss the most in Guix (I'm used to run "pkgfile" on ArchLinux)
<civodul>alezost: the only way to do that is by building a database of files
<civodul>jmd, rekado_: i've just been touching these pages, hence the churn :-)
<Helius>hi, I need to build R with x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, where I installed guix the system is recognized as x86_64—unkown-linux-gnu. I downloaded guix from git and rebuild it with ./configure --localstatedir=/var --build=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu. Does it make sense ? and then which is the next step ? Alternatively there is a right way to do that ?
<Petter>How about specifying files, and commands provided, in the recipes?
<civodul>Helius: if you installed Guix for x86_64, then "guix package -i r" will install R for x86_64
<Helius>civodul: yes, that is correct, the point is the “unkonw” part of the I need on the landing node to have “pc” instead of “unkonw”. I need to mix a Ubuntu system with GUIX, and I have already/successfully created a tar.gz with the self contained distribution on the R version I need, the only problem is that R when starts look at the builing system and create an alternative lib/directory with it, so if it is build with “unkonw” or “pc” it ma
<Petter>guix build: error: build failed: derivation `/gnu/store/ymh3kylslsrlj293mnw016viis02vii1-asciinema-1.3.0.drv' may not be deterministic: output `/gnu/store/00n4jf8q3cg08rws8apyqfjbnyjnvkfg-asciinema-1.3.0' differs
<jmi2k>Ok, thanks. When I try to build, it fails because python-requests is missing
<lfam>On GNOME desktops a service called Tracker automatically indexes all new files. Tracker uses a variety of tools and libraries to extract metadata from files. For media files Tracker uses the GStreamer framework. Images are parsed with ImageMagick and PDF files with Poppler.
<lfam>Does anyone want to try updating our bitcoin-core package? I tried the "naive" update but the tests fail with "FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: './test/data/blanktx.json". Of course that file does exist, so perhaps the tests are being run from a directory where that relative path is incorrect?
<efraim>i tracked my aarch64 issue down to "something" after stage1 of gcc-final, right now i'm trying to paper over it by passing --disable-nls to gcc-boot0 and gcc-final and see if it magically fixes itself
