<koosha>After the installation , I get this : "grub-install: warning: Sector 33 is already in use by program 'FlexNet'; avoiding it. This software may cause boot or other problems in future. Please ask its authors not to store data in the boot track.""
<civodul>efraim: clients can talk to any daemon, but the daemon may or may not be able to perform the requested builds
<dadinn>civodul: I see. I think my problem is that I would need a more hands-on debootsrap/Arch like shell-based install method because my root is set up in a more exotic way, with home/var/swap residing on a ZFS pool and afaik GUIX won't support ZFS anytime soon
<dadinn>civodul: and moving /var on a running system, after installation, is a PITA
<dadinn>rekado: honestly, because of the above, I haven't even looked into GuixSD intall method, only experimented with a Debian hosted, and exploring from there if I could get it bootstraped without a Debian host
<atw>I have not been following the mailing list. Is there progress on a maven build system/importer? I was exploring packaging leiningen before, but I think maven is a prerequisite.
<reepca>Well, the good news is that it seems this old nvidia card works. I can successfully use both of my 1600x1200 displays independently. The bad news is that once again, my ethernet interface was renamed to enp3s0 from enp2s0 and didn't automatically activate on startup. Also my third display, connected with a vga->hdmi adapter, isn't showing anything.
<mekeor>quiliro: how do you mean your question "where is gnu/system/examples/ ?"
<mekeor>quiliro: it's in the git-repository of guix
<koosha>quiliro: After installing GuixSD (It finished without any error and just this warning : "Sector 32 is already in use by the program `FlexNet'; avoiding it. This software may cause boot or other problems in future. Please ask its authors not to store data in the boot track.") I got kernel panic : " Cannot boot because: Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00000000" . This is my system configuration file : htt
<civodul>koosha: the mailing list may be more appropriate to investigate
<civodul>perhaps you could send the details and config file to email@example.com?
<quiliro>koosha: i searched the net about that once it happened to me
<quiliro>flexnet is some kind of backup software you can remove
<quiliro>i would be thankful if you would report it to help-guix either if you solve it or not...i should have done that but i do not know now what my problem was or how to solve it..... i remember it was very easy to solve
<quiliro>i remember it was something about zeroing that part of the disk by some method
<quiliro>koosha: but you can easily find the solution by searching on duckduckgo.com
<reepca>agh, turns out the GeForce 8400 GS I got from newegg has a faulty HDMI port. Guess that's what I get for buying refurbished. Which means... sigh... on to the 4th graphics card. But hey, at least I can use my two larger screens in the meantime!
<koosha>quasisane: So , you're saying the kernel panic is because of the flexnet ?
<jonsger>reepca: it would be nice if some could reverse engineering the firmware of a more recent card :)
<reepca>jonsger: I dunno how feasible that is. The only reason the older cards work is that the firmware is baked-in if I understand correctly. From what I can tell, firmware, especially without documentation, would be really, really rough to reverse-engineer. Throw on cryptography baked into the hardware and it seems pretty close to impossible. But I'd like to learn more about the process - perhaps next summer.
