<DoublePlusGood23>weird. `guix pull` on my ubuntu server uses guile 2.2 and 2.0.1 on guixsd
<Salt>net hiccuped and I'm uncertain if my previous message went through, if so, apologies for the dup.'
<Salt>Hello, I am looking to deploy an alternative package manager on a large clustered system. However, there is the rather large limitation of not having root access. Currently reviewing Guix, Nix, and JuNest as potential options. Are there any other recommendations? And has anyone had experience running Guix without root?
<lfam>Salt: Yes, we've been experimenting with totally root-less Guix. To summarize, it's still a work-in-progress and requires a modified workflow or not-officially-supported hacks, but we are very interested in making this a supported feature.
<Salt>lfam, we are very interested in not having to install everything from scratch via hacks!
<lfam>Salt: Some options are relocatable Guix, `guix pack`, and Guix with proot
<efraim>I think it was fixed in a later commit? Something about ice 9
<janneke>does this ring a bell, GLIBCXX_3_4.21 not found? -- out/helloworld/c++03/test: /gnu/store/7k893g1r03vk2n4nkpj1a9ldchy7k9s1-gcc-4.9.4-lib/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.21' not found (required by /home/janneke/src/verum/.profile/lib/libboost_coroutine.so.1.63.0)
<efraim>janneke The glibc part looks like when you run 'make clean' and still have .go files that arent removed and get referenced
<rekado>janneke: this looks like you’ve built something outside of Guix and the libraries it was linked against have been upgraded.
<brendyyn>Yeah I'm real unsure what I want. I want to have automounting drives, connecting to wifi and all that stuff, but tiling without all the junk and inefficiency
<rekado>brendyyn: for automounting you may want to install gvfs in the system profile
<brendyyn>I end up with this frankenstein's moster of a setup where I use the command line most of the time but then I have pcmanfm since it's exhausting to type directory names with tab completion all the time instead of clicking on them
<rekado>sorry for not being helpful. I only know puppet and ansible, but these systems come with their own configuration language, so there’s no meaningful way to integrate them with Guix.
<rekado>maybe cbaines wil chime in and share some ideas
<janneke>rekado: no need to say you're not helpful! I've heard about puppet/ansible/chef but don't even know if any of them is functional or could work together with guix, or innspire guix...just wondering over here ;-)
<ng0>should I send the plymouth patch from around december to the guix-patches list? we need to think about how to integrate this into the system, and I think tracking it there helps. what do you think?
<ng0>plymouth is this pre-boot application which would come in right after grub and has to be in the initrd or something
<solene>hello, I bought a new netbook and it only supports boot through uefi, is there a way to install GuixSD on it ? The usb image provided doesn't seems compatible, my bios doesn't find a bootable things on my usb memory stick
<ng0>solene: with the new release which is about to happen pretty soon if all goes well, we will have uefi support.
<solene>ng0: nice ! would it be possible to generate an img from a computer running guix ?
<apteryx[m]>civodul: re bridging this channel with #guix:matrix.org (Matrix protocole) would allow matrix and it's users to interact seamlessly. I've been using matrix with the Riot client (available on F-Droid market on Android) to keep track of replies on irc and it's quite nice already. Bridging with matrix would allow matrix users in the channel to initiate file transfers or vidéoconférence between them which wouldn't work at the
