<Hiroteru>Hi! I'm trying to mount a sshfs using a system configuration file. I think that the file-system function works as the "/etc/fstab" file. The problem is, i can't manage to make the connexion. On the boot, it keeps yelling 'waiting for partition 'user@hostname:/' to appear..."
<Hiroteru>mekeor: I'm building a VM, but when I try to launch it, a can't access anything. If you knew a way to see the file otherwise i'd be glad to see it :)
<mekeor>Hiroteru: i guess after running `guix system reconfigure` and before trying to boot, you should be able to read the /etc/fstab? – i might be wrong though.
<Hiroteru>mekeor: I'm using guix, but my OS is Debian, so i can't do a `guix system reconfigure` unfortunatly
<mekeor>it must be possible to read the files within the VM image
<mekeor>i don't know exactly as i'm not so experienced but maybe others know?
<mekeor>maybe you can run something like `dd if=$(guix system disk-image my-os.scm) of=/some/path` and then read /some/path/etc/fstab ?
<mekeor>actually, i'd rather guess you can just run `guix system init my-os-config.scm /some/path` and read /some/path/etc/fstab
<mekeor>but maybe you shouldn't have a grub-configuration declaration in your system config then because otherwise i guess `guix system init` would install grub on your hard disk?
<Hiroteru>mekeor: thanks, i'll try this when i'll be able to. I think that seeing the fstab file would help me solving the problem.
<Hiroteru>mekeor: If I remember what I tried, it won't work. Hopefully I'm wrong :)
<Hiroteru>mekeor: but I think there is a way to mount vm images, so it could be a way
<cbaines>civodul, interesting, while I work at GDS, I work on GOV.UK, which actually doesn't have much to do with "GOV.UK Pay" either in technologies or people. Also, contrary to what rekado commented on Hacker News, I don't think Pay use Guix, and GOV.UK doesn't really either, it's just me at the moment.
<rekado_>quite a few tools we use are x86_64 only and all the rest of our hardware is x86_64 (several HPC clusters), so I’d have to cross-build from POWER to x86_64
<rekado_>yeah. I was looking for a good use, but it didn’t work out.
<rekado_>current plans are to get lots of storage and a few more build servers to store old source archives as needed (for actual reproducibility), and to build variants of applications that are not in Guix.
