<Apteryx>While doing a "guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm". Does that mean anything?
<Apteryx>Seems like it hung. I'll try restarting the task.

<joshuaBPMan_>Hello, I'm trying to run 'sudo guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm', but it's taking hours (4 hours last night, and it failed at the end). It looks like it's trying to compile webkit. I suppose I should try uninstalling icecat, and then run reconfigure again.
<Apteryx>joshuaBPMan_: I'm reconfiguring my system as well right now. I noly see guix-daemon using all my cpu, but I can't tell what it's doing unfortunately (it's pretty silent).
<Apteryx>I don't think icecat uses Webkit, if that helps.
<joshuaBPMan_>oh. That's true...icecat uses gecko. Why the heck am I seeing webkit? Maybe some other application requires it.
<lfam>buenouanq: Look under '~/.config/guix/latest'. It's not a real user interface; I don't think we have a way to list the contents of package outputs yet. Maybe the information should go in package descriptions.
<buenouanq>what happens if I cancel an install with C-c before it finishes?
<ovidnis>buenouanq: guix is transactional so either the install is successful or nothing happens
<ovidnis>any reason in particular stumpwm wouldn't show up as selectable in my login manager?
<buenouanq>and what was half downloaded will be garbage collected at some later point?
<ovidnis>i dunno, just started using guix a couple days ago
<lfam>Half downloaded files will be discarded immediately. Fully downloaded but unused packages will either be discarded when you run `guix gc` or, if you end up asking for them while they are still on your computer, they will be used.
<ovidnis>i've got `stumpwm.desktop' in `/home/ovidnis/.guix-profile/share/xsessions'
<efraim>lfam: good call on updating openjpeg/fixed to openjpeg-2.1.2, I didn't think of that when I was doing it
<lfam>efraim: I hadn't even noticed the new release!
<lfam>It's weird, when I download the source code with my web browser, the tarball's name is 'openjpeg-2.1.2.tar.gz'.
<efraim>i normally pass it to aria2 so I can also download any sig/asc/whatever file also
<lfam>aria2 gives the full file name; curl doesn't
<lfam>efraim: Does aria2 make it easier to download signatures somehow?
<fr33domlover>Hello! Q: I installed X11 via Guix (not GuixSD) but when I run `startx` it fails to get a display. Any idea why / how / where I need to place files / change PATH to make it work? I mean, run X11 from Guix and not from host distro package
<buenouanq>I tried to use Gnome as a user in no supplementary groups and it was terribly slow and jittery. Top showed everything going through a single cpu. Added the user to wheel, audio, and video, and the problems went away. Normal or important? What would cause this?
<cbaines>quiliro, guix build has a --sources option, but I think that's a bit different
<cbaines>You might get the right behaviour by just installing what you need in to another profile, to make sure that its in the store
<alezost>sneek: later tell ovidnis so you installed "sbcl-stumpwm:bin" in your user profile, right? I think that SLIM looks for .desktop files only in a system profile, so you need to install stumpwm globally, i.e. try to add (packages (list sbcl-stumpwm "bin") ...) to your system config
<efraim>rather than copy tons of lines of code, with just qtbase configure took 100 seconds on my machine to decide which bits to build, adding everything I could find made it take 200 seconds to decide which to build, so it looks like we need to add tons of inputs to pyqt
<efraim>There should be a Guix build command to download the substitutes that are available for building a package/system
<efraim>it might be --sources, i can never remember if all or package is the right one in that case
<quiliro>guix build: error: build failed: some substitutes for the outputs of derivation `/gnu/store/wm8ii88dwwzm6h08hf8xrz9w5k66c5fh-glproto-1.4.17.tar.bz2.drv' failed (usually happens due to networking issues); try `--fallback' to build derivation from source
<tux__>Hi ,just started reading about guix. how do i express systemwide preferences /do white-blacklisting of packages.e.g. exclude pøtteringware(avahi,pulseaudio,systemd), replace openssl with libressl block qt etc ? thanks
<cbaines>tux__, with Guix, "systemwide" preferences just have to affect Guix when you are configuring your system
<cbaines>if you want to exclude certian packages properly, that requires checking that they are not in the build graph, and replacing them if they are
<cbaines>I don't think there is an easy interface to this yet though
<efraim>There are currently no plans to create use flags like gentoo, but you are able to alter package definitions to use or not use whatever packages you'd like
<tux__>@cbaines: thanks, eg iwant to compile curl only against gnutls (no openssl) there would be no make.conf-alike, i had to use one of two options ->a) at runtime : export GUIX_BUILD_OPTIONS="" b) package definition ?
<quiliro>i installed xdg-utils and the error went away but it would still not open the browser
<jmi2k>It installs fine, grub runs and ask for the password, but boot hangs because it doesn't find the LUKS partition.
<jmi2k>About the installation: a GPT disk with three partitions: 32 GiB FAT, 128 MiB BIOS boot and the rest ~100GiB LUKS root partition. UUID are all correct (I've checked them a lot of times :-)), and as I said, it install without errors.
<ng0>question. does anyone know why Sree Harsha stopped with the gnunet-fs guix task? At least it seems so after reading through the most obvious crosslinked threads from 2013 - 2014 on gnunet-devel and guix-devel
<ng0>if not, I'll send Sree Harsha an email asking about what went wrong
<ng0>we had some brainstorming today and came to similar results as the people involved in the threads from 2013 - now
<ng0>ng0, casually asking questions about a 3 years timespan :D
<lfam>You should try replying to the threads; the right people might not see this IRC chat
