<ng0>was my request for inclusion on savannah received, or is there something savannah has to do with my account? It was just reactived recently maybe something is missing. If it was received and you just need time, that's okay too
<jackhill>Hello Guix! In looking at guix package -l output, http://lpaste.net/357572 , I see that several packages were changes, but their version stayed the same. I assume this is because one of their dependencies changed. What is the recommended way to see the full diff between generation that includes packages that are not specifically in my profile?
<davexunit>I don't think there is a tool available that will present this information. it would be interesting to see such a thing
<jackhill>davexunit: thanks! Indeed I think it would be interesting too. To we have a place to keep track of wishlist items?
<davexunit>rekado: do we keep wishlist tickets in debbugs?
<innova>hello #guix. i'm currently trying GuixSD, quite impressed so far. o/
<innova>One question though: Is there a way to install a package system-wide for all users? Or must they all install their own?
<wigust>innova: Welcome! You could do it in your system configuration.
<lfam>I'm working on a new build system, for Julia. Currently I'm trying to figure out native-search-paths is used to export variables in the build environment. I see the set-paths procedure in (guix build gnu-build-system), and I added a native-search-path specification to the Julia package, but I'm still missing something, because the variable is not exported in the build environment.
<lfam>Oh, and the prototype julia-build-system is based on gnu-build-system, and does not remove the set-paths phase
<bavier`>lfam: does the build-system export the variable if it's empty?
<lfam>Hm, good question bavier`. I'll need to dig more to know
<lfam>It's likely my understanding of how it works in the other build systems is wrong
<rekado>well, that’s the advice from R people, too, but it turned out to work really well after all.
<lfam>Unfortunately the subject seems less than fully documented
<lfam>Right now I'm stuck on a Guix / Guile thing instead though.
<lfam>Compiling the Julia programs without a build.jl requires you to invoke the module in the Julia interpreter, so you need to know the name of the module itself. So I am figuring out how to pass a string from the package arguments into the build-side environment
<rekado>feel free to bounce some ideas off me; I’d also be willing to test things as I’m sure we’ll have more julia users at the institute in the near future.
<rekado>lfam: we’re doing this in the ant-build-system with #:jar-name
<lfam>Ah, perfect. I was just poking around looking for an example
<cbaines>take the nginx test as an example, you can run it by running "make check-system TESTS=nginx" but if you open up gnu/tests/web.scm and put %nginx-os right at the bottom, you can then do "guix system vm gnu/tests/web.scm" to get a VM start script for the OS used in the test.
<pmikkelsen>allright, the service I am writing is an MPD service, but I don't have a good idea to where the default music folder should be. Does anyone in here have an idea?
<ng0>you might want to check guix-devel archives, there was some discussion on mpd-service
<buenouanq>that seems like something that would be different for everyone and thus shouldn't have a default
<thomassgn>hey, got a computer with an older guixsd install on it, trying to update and get it running again. Keep getting 'system: error: libtiff-CVE-2017-7593.patch: patch ot found'. This is also an upgrade of guile. This happens when I run 'guix pull; guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm'
