<jsierles>I'd like to modify the guixsd 0.13.0 VM boot image to add a console to the kernel arguments for Google Compute Engine. would the best way be to boot it locally, reconfigure, then save the vm?
<rekado_>jsierles: I think you can just build a new VM image with a configuration that includes the console arguments to the kernel.
<jsierles>rekado_: i see. how do you create a VM image?
<adfeno>quiliro: "Build systems" in Guix are like a predefined set of order. In real life, I would train my dog (if I had one) to "sit" (order) by influencing him to do a series of detailed steps to do so.
<rekado_>the gnu-build-system has a couple of phases (you might remember them from last time)
<joshuaBPMan_>Does anyone else have a problem with their mouse not clicking on things? ie: you click on the "File" in Firefox or any other application, and the file menu doesn't open? I can't even open a new tab via clicking on it in Firefox. I have to press C-t...
<quiliro>joshuaBPMan_: first test: replace the mouse
<joshuaBPMan_>quiliro: the mouse works fine on my parabola machine, but i do have another mouse lying around...
<quiliro>joshuaBPMan_: second test: test other buttons (including pressing the mouse wheel)
<quiliro>joshuaBPMan_: same mouse works in different system...test #2
<joshuaBPMan_>quiliro: The 2nd mouse had the same issues. And pressing all the mouse buttons had no effect in firefox.
<rekado>please take your time in trying to understand what you’re doing and what the errors mean
<quiliro>i did not know i had to include that part of lambda
<quiliro>rekado: please tell me how to investigate and what to read
<rekado>quiliro: for example, you could re-read the log and my suggestions and then compare them with what you’ve written.
<rekado>quiliro: also play with these things in the REPL
<reepca>Hm, why do we have headers in subdirectories? For example, ~/.guix-profile/include/mono-2.0/mono/*.h instead of ~/.guix-profile/include/mono/*.h. Seems like you'd need to add every one of those subdirectories to C_INCLUDE_PATH or something similar in order for existing #includes to work.
