<Digit>~~~~~~ just curious. since there's likely a lot of lisp love in here... ~ anyone a fan of clfswm? :) isnt it the most amazing window manager ever? a whole new paradigm beyond stacking n tiling. who knew. :) ~ if there are any clfswm fans, has there been any effort to propose clfswm as a candidate for inclusion in release media maybe? :) that'd be wild.
<buenouanq>repartiton the drive to MBR and add the efi-grub line in the os config
<buenouanq>EFI anything has always given me nothing but problems, I try to avoid it as much as possible
<buenouanq>The easiest fix if you already have the drive partitoned how you want it (sounds correct, GPT with a BIOS Boot for GRUB) is just to reboot the installer in Legacy BIOS mode or whatever your mobo calls it.
<ng0>it's a branch I haven't touched since the commit date
<ng0>I sdtopped with qupzilla because I like the last bits of my sanity and webbrowsers are just a pain.. I think I only finished palemoon because I felt like it has to be finished, even if it never gets into guix proper ;D
<efraim>civodul: I see the commit adding extend-openssh-authorized-keys to the openssh service, would it make sense to add something similar to guix-daemon for people with multiple machines so they can grab substitutes from their other boxes?
<wigust>fr33domlover: Could you check “guix environment --ad-hoc --pure gcc-toolchain ghc@7 xmonad ghc-xmonad-contrib -- xmonad --recompile”? It works for me, but I have ghc 8 at the moment.
<buenouanq>so yeah, if you want to install GPT with BIOS Boot and BIOS GRUB, you have to re boot, get into your mobo"s BIOS settings (usually hold f2 on boot), and force it to boot with Legacy BIOS or whatever.
<Ivanhercaz>All right... I have had bad experiences with Legacy BIOS in the computer where I am trying to install GuixSD
<buenouanq>well I can't help with UEFI, never done that myself
<Ivanhercaz>I could try again to use Legacy. I will return in some minutes.
<ng0>wigust: I think my last commit fixed the package we exchanged messages about. But I'm still building, so not sure if it really did it, since it is an .in file
<ng0>where is sneek when you need sneek. So I had some exchange about Thunderbird and it seems like it isn't just Debian, and Free Software Directory was just adjusted. I will still include the Parabola patches though as some of them make sense (no webrtc, no faceboogle,..)
<Ivanhercaz>For now, I have booted the USB under Legacy and everything is perfect. I am going to try again everythin.
<buenouanq>the set in that command is the partiton number
<user___>hi! i would to try guix on my lenovo x230. at the moment i use Debian 9.1 with two proprietary kernel modules. important applications is emacs and firefox. will i lose something if i will install guix over Debian?
<buenouanq>if your efi thing is sda2, you would want to set 2 not 1
<Ivanhercaz>hmm... I have exec herd start cow-store /mnt and I get "herd: exception caught while executing 'start' on service 'cow-store':"
<Ivanhercaz>"ERROR: In procedure rmdir: Device or resource busy"
<user___>buenouanq: i have installed Debian 9.1 on my laptop, i've read that guix can work on my distribution as daemon. this means that i will have Debian whith guix, and i'll can use both .deb and guix or i'll have guixsd whith linux kernel (not linux-libre) and debian's packages?
<buenouanq>I really don't know - I've never used Guix outside of GuixSD.
<lfam>user___: Debian will provide the kernel and other system-level software. Guix will provide packages on top of Debian. I do this and it works well.
<user___>lfam: thanks. you use guix to manage debian after install? you have all advantages of guix or just acces to guix packages?
<lfam>user___: No, I manage Debian with Debian tools, and use Guix to provide extra packages
<lfam>I have all the advantages of Guix, but not of GuixSD
<user___>if i really need only emacs and firefox (but with flash) and i have two kernel modules which i should use for wifi and graphics card can i replace Debian with guixsd?
<user___>lfam: guix makes system resrore points on debian?
<lfam>user___: No, `guix system` only works on GuixSD
<buenouanq>flash is still nonfree right? now that they're [finally] killing it, there's a push to ``open source'' it or something (to keep old neat things from being lost forever), so maybe this will no longer be true in the near future
<user___>buenouanq: yes, but if i need sometime Viber or Skype this is problem in GuixSD?
<buenouanq>Freedom is more important than capability, comfort, and convenience.
<user___>lfam: can i install guix as second system?
<Ivanhercaz>I get end Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exit code 0x=00000000
<user___>lfam: i'm understand, and this is great. but if i need it, that is difficuilt whti guix to rebuild packages from .deb? and can i use proprietary kernel modules?
<lfam>user___: If you are able to package your own kernel, you'll be able to use whatever modules you prefer. As for rebuilding Debian packages, I don't think anyone has created a deb -> guix converter. Personally I'd recreate the packages by hand, without trying to use a converter.
<user___>lfam: i know how build own kernel, but i don't want do this every time, when guix will update my system.
<user___>lfam: and if there is only .deb package can i run unpacked application on guixsd?
