<ng0>the package I submitted had the advantage of having one directory inside (doc?) so I could just chdir ..
<nckx>adfeno: yes, I've already packaged it. I just replaced the unpack phase with my own. Yesterday I bookmarked an e-mail from Ludo' in which he mentions the /*bomb variants, but haven't tried that yet.
<nckx>The problem [I had] with zpaq wasn't the unpack phase (that was trivial to override), but the fact that snippet application in guix/packages.scm repeats the same mistake (a very optimistic ‘first-file’, which leads to ‘chdir COPYING’) with no obvious way to override it.
<ng0>dropping the attempt to learn C back in 2007 was a mistake though
<ng0>rekado_: did you apply any further changes with darcs I could integrate in my darcs branch? Otherwise I'd just use that branch (the state I originally submitted) to test wether https will work one day
<rekado_>civodul: would you be opposed to using lalr-parser in bournish to support more complicated syntax?
<bavier`>rekado_: a past gsoc project was to implement a more complete shell implementation for guix, but we didn't get to the point of deciding where it would live, as a replacement for bournish or as its own guile language
<civodul>phant0mas: cool! did you send the patch to guix-devel?
<civodul>rekado_: definitely not opposed, it's the right thing to do
<civodul>bavier`: like for (guix gcrypt) and so on, it can start its life in guix.git, that usually makes things easier
<phant0mas>I will also update the patch to remove the extra ":" to mirror the updated coreutils commit they accepted
<jmd>I'm getting this error doing guix package --upgrade --fallback: guix package: error: reference to invalid output 'debug' of derivation '/gnu/store/giyh9cv0avvybhfa0imay4qwj1xsqwli-yelp-3.20.1.drv'
<Apteryx>Could anyone give me a hint about how to connect a bluetooth device? I'm using the %desktop-services default services, which FWIU includes a bluetooth service called bluez. It seems though that I should add myself to the group "lp".
<ng0>civodul: I will look into the shallow clone patch soon, thanks for the link
<rekado_>Apteryx: yes, your account should be member of the “lp” group.
<rekado_>Apteryx: check with “hciconfig” if your bluetooth hardware is up. If it is not run “sudo hciconfig hci0 up”.
<rekado_>Apteryx: then you can use bluetoothctl to pair devices or control the device some other way.
<Apteryx>rekado_: Thanks. I have to install "bluez" in my user profile to get this "bluetoothctl" executable, rigth?
<civodul`>jmd: the "reference to invalid output" problem is post 482fda2729c3e76999892cb8f9a0391a7bd37119, right?
<civodul`>jmd: do you have an easy way to reproduce it?
<civodul`>"guix build yelp" works for me, for instance
<ng0>108 letters in unixpath length maximum error in an out of tree package i have.. regardless of my further findings and solutions, is this something guix has considered, maximum file name length and maybe shorten the build dirs in /tmp/ to point to a symlink with the long name or smth like that?
<ng0>I can't post the link to the bug report right now
<Apteryx>That's a good idea! I wonder if the "paired" state will continue to hold. We'll see!
<Apteryx>(I paired interactively using the bluetoothctl CLI tool).
<Apteryx>Hmm. Still no joy (apple wireless keyboard) -- connected & paired but doesn't register input.
<Apteryx>ng0: I tried restarting the xorg-server service with herd but it didn't seem to help. The log at /var/log/Xorg.0.log doesn't contain anything interesting.
<Apteryx>It works! Not sure which of the following did it: 0) connect & pair using hcitool + bluetoothctl, 1) "sudo modprobe hid-apple" 2) Restart Xorg 3) Disconnect & Reconnect keyboard with bluetoothctl.
<Apteryx>After that, the A1314 apple wireless keyboard got registered in the kernel (visible in dmesg) as an input.
<adfeno>Apteryx: Try seeeing if it stays that way after reboot, just in case :)
<adfeno>But before that, take note of the steps done, and try jumping one or two.
<Apteryx>Probably not, unless the bluetooth controller will stay on (I had to do "sudo hciconfig hci0 up")
<rekado_>Apteryx: you can add a udev rule to start the bluetooth interface automatically.
<rekado_>(I don’t know the magic incantation, but I know it exists.)
<Apteryx>rekado_: OK! Thanks for mentionning it. I'll look into it tonight. I guess this can all be done using gexps from my config.scm file?
<rekado_>Apteryx: yes, you can add the udev rule in your config.scm
<Apteryx>Seems GnuCash (accounting software) is not able to save data it keeps across sessions (for example, it the tips pop-up always come back, no matter how many times you untick the "don't show me again" checkbox).
<Apteryx>It also doesn't remember about the last opened file (it's usually re-opened automatically). I'll file a bug tonight.
<jlicht>Does anyone have weird input issues using the developer console in IceCat 45.5.1 using recent master guix?
<jlicht>to be specific, after entering an expression such as `2 + 2', and presssing enter, the expression is evaluated, but the console input line now contains `2 + 2' and a newline
<Apteryx>jlicht: I have that too. It's ugly but it doesn't seem to cause an issue.
<Apteryx>Other than you have to manually clear it sometimes. Is this only in IceCat?
<jlicht>Apteryx: I have no other installed browsers with developer console, so I couldn't say
<Apteryx>I'll try Firefox 45 ESR I have on Windows
