<buenouanq>we desperately need the next version to be release and have it get out into the major distros
<ng0>If I could decide, there would be an alpha release / pre 0.11 and marked as such, but I do not decide. Public image, community building etc is important. Like now it's just 2 bugs left. could be between 5 weeks and 5 months (realworld time) depending on when christian finds time to code it. https://gnunet.org/bugs/view.php?id=4909 is a relatively trivial task I was told. in case anyone wants less talk and more
<buenouanq>DoublePlusGood23: very. Two things need attention though: 1) our build is dated and incompatible with their current git so you won't be able to find or download much. 2) someone really needs to make us a nice gnunet-service so it runs in the background on a dedicated user accessible by anyone.
<CalGuixSD>Cross-building is important. I keep a "bug out" flash drive with free GNU/Linux ISOs, Windows Rufus (ISO writer), several free programs compiled for Windows and MacOS, my dotfiles, and my SSH/GPG keys.
<Apteryx>civodul: can I still send a patch for core-update?
<buenouanq>so CalGuixSD, it seems like your problem is that you're trying to automate creation of your os config.scm this for some reason... to get the correct uuid, you could call luksUUID and save it as a var called as the device name or something crazy that will only cause you more problems I imagine
<Apteryx>I found what causes the broken link in gimp documentation. Our compress-documentation phase in gnu-build-system has a small defect.
<buenouanq>have you gotten this up and running at all yet? I'd focus on that before this automation project.
<CalGuixSD>buenouanq: I hate partitioning and connecting to the network dozens of times, every time I mess up the install and have to try again. So, I made a script to do it all for me.
<buenouanq>I've never messed up the GuixSD install once...
<buenouanq>It's the slickest easiest coolest thing ever.
<buenouanq>CalGuixSD: obviously it's not working out too well for you
<buenouanq>I suggest: installing it once normally, without luks or anything weird/fancy
<buenouanq>then, you can build up from there, and instead of starting over each time from the flashdrive or whatever, just use $ guix system reconfigure config.scm
<CalGuixSD>buenouanq: But I will have to start over from flash drive, when I do LUKS. LUKS requires repartitioning.
<buenouanq>your problem is obviously that that file isn't big enough
<CalGuixSD>The script doesn't do anything to it. It's just my way of saving files, because I can't save files right now.
<rekado_>CalGuixSD: why do you need to repartition each time?
<rekado_>CalGuixSD: your partitions are not lost even if you fail your install
<CalGuixSD>rekado_: Last time I tried mounting my already-made partition, it complained. I used to have the error message, but I lost my latest version of that giant script that had the notes about what happened.
<CalGuixSD>The error wasn't from mounting, but Guix said it didn't want to touch /gnu/store/.
<CalGuixSD>Wait... buenouanq, the things I automated in that script ARE things I have done. The whole reason I put them in a script was because I was tired of typing them over and over each time I booted into the system.
<rekado_>my laptop’s mainboard seems to be broken (after having dropped the laptop one time too often). Sometimes the computer freezes completely and then there’s disk corruption :-/
<CalGuixSD>How do I get it in plain text rather than HTML?
<mekeor>what do you think about adding a hardware-related section to the "GuixSD"-section in Guix' manual where we could e.g. explain that since GuixSD is a fully-free distribution, you should be aware that your wifi-card may not work etc?
<Tsutsukakushi>rekado_: it was more about LSM in general, not specifically apparmor
<nee``>Hello, I'm packaging pngcrush and it says that the name is not trademarked, but the author claims 'common-law trademark protection'. It doesn't say anything else about trademarks or consequences. Is this alright to package? The license is a reworded, zlib equivalent.
<amz3>davexunit: is the container in guix, similar to lxc or docker? can you run a sheperd for instance as first process?
<rekado_>amz3: it’s a combination of user namespaces and a couple more features provided by modern versions of Linux.
<ng0>you had this problem and you had OpenSSH in your profile, like I did o nthe server, and the search in the logs just pointed me to this solution: reconfiguring the system with openssh in the global packages fixed it :)
