<efraim>it was incredibly easy, I never got around to splitting out the 5 packages into separate outputs
<jsierles>rekado: do you have ideas for how i could import all of CRAN? at least to get an idea how many packages need special attention
<roelj>So, after doing a `guix environment --pure guix' and then compiling guix from source from that environment, when I try to run ./pre-inst-env guix environment ... I get the infamous "substitute: ;;; Failed to autoload make-session in (gnutls):"
<roelj>What have I done wrong here? Should I do guix environment --pure guix --ad-hoc gnutls specifically?
<jsierles>which you said was the same thing. but i see the output is not the same.
<reepca>Hm, trying to test executing builders in the build environment stuff I'm testing and I'm getting "ERROR: In procedure execl: No such file or directory" despite being able to verify in the REPL that the file to be executed does indeed exist and has execute permissions set. And it isn't specifying *which* file or directory doesn't exist.
<civodul>now, if it's a non-determinstic issue, it could be that you were lucky
<catonano>rekado: ludo mentioned that you are working on a B plan for the Guix build farm. Something about repurposing used hardware. Would you mind to say something about that ? How is it going ? What is likely to happen ?
<lfam>Is the Arch wiki really recommending that users add a root certificate without checking its authenticity?!
<ng0>and by the way we do not include the sample config file in the output.. which isn't bad when you have a collection of old configs but it's not good if you have to consult their source for what we should have locally
<catonano>yesterday I attempted to create a virtual machine after a long time and it started building a kernel. So I stopped it. Today I tried again and it started building some gobject reated stuff. I stopped it again
<catonano>Today I read that Gnome is moving to a new build system (I can't remember its name now) and they are happy because it's faster than the autotools. I was mumbling that keeping Gnome up to date will require a functional build farm.
<lfam>I mean, those instructions are nonsensical. Obviously somebody had a tracker that used that certificate, and their CA store was too old to contain it. So, they fixed it for themselves without understanding what they were doing, and then they told the entire world to copy their example.
<jsierles>i'm confused about substitute server setup. i have mine setup without caching, so I expect anything that's in the store to be available. however, my guix install frequently compiles things anyway
