<Lijero>That sure incentivizes growing the Guix repository quickly, heh.
<Apteryx>Lijero: What is the software in question?
<Lijero>Nothing in particular right now, though I was trying to use Icecat 52 before it was packaged, and I didn't actually get the update until today, because I thought guix package -u updated packages and you didn't need guix pull except for when guix itself got an update or something.
<Apteryx>Lijero: Yeah, guix & package definitions come as a whole. Can be suprising at first.
<rekado>Lijero: any version of Guix describes a single graph of packages. To update packages you must update the description of the graph (i.e. update Guix).
<rekado>Lijero: packages are exported values in the Guix library.
<sneek>snape, ng0 says: with the two font licenses applied 0ad works
<sneek>snape, ng0 says: btw, 0ad is pretty huge, I don't remember the total size after it is build but I hope it's small enough to not be as big as libreoffice.
<SovereignBleak>So the conclusion for working EFI seems to be to take-over an existing distro. After a `guix system init`, what other directories would I `rm rf` to have a perfectly clean GuixSD install and how would I boot into new generations of GuixSD if there was no mechanism to automatically add new generations to systemd-boot as NixOS does?
<rekado_>Is there a more elegant way to let glibc find libnss_* plugins than to use LD_PRELOAD?
<brendyn>'guix build --email@example.com guile-sly' didn't work. guile-sdl is still packaged with 2.0
<brendyn>I guess --with-input only changes the input for the package being build, not the dependencies too
<brendyn>*sigh*, now guile-sdl doesn't build either
<brendyn>guix build guile-sdl; doesn't build guile-sdl, It just returns the derivation that exists. guix build guile-sdl --check; does the same think, except some grafts are added for who knows what reason. guix build guile-sdl --no-substitutes; tries to build the entire universe
<brendyn>What's the command for --just-build-this-package-please?
<Apteryx>Q: Does changing a build phase (gnu-build-system) implies rebuilding all the packages built with the gnu-build-system?
<Apteryx>E.g., is this the reason that "guix environment guix" goes on to build gcc, patch, gawk, etc...
<CharlieBrown>paroneayea: I read on Reddit that you used a Libreboot X200 with GuixSD as your daily driver. I would like to do that, too.
<efraim>i can't seem to get the hang of the guix-patches debbugs email, it seems I should be able to `msmtp -- firstname.lastname@example.org < patch.patch' but they keep on needing to be reassigned to guix-patches
