<atw>cuirass is triggered by vcs events and evaluates derivations. A derivation produces at least one item in the store. Can a derivation do anything apart from producing store items? Asking because I would like to use cuirass to automatically recompile and redeploy a static website.
<bavier1>atw: no, but you could always stage things from the store to where you need them
<atw>bavier1: thanks. I need to check into cuirass more. Maybe even extend it to handle deployment like this, if I can.
<atw>did I read something about reconfiguring remote hosts over ssh recently?
<atw>I think I was thinking of guix copy and similar stuff that uses guile-ssh
<atw>by the way, Apteryx, I think it was you who told me about Guix in the first place, so thanks!
<ng0>but nvm, I'm sure it still needs some qt modules we don't have
<ng0>for those using mastodon: tootstream requires some feedback and improvements upstream before I can send it in
<janneke>my emacs still eats all my memory...i seem to remember a remark about compiling with a configuration option tat should fix M-x garbage-collect?
<ng0>on XFCE4 patches: xfce-panel is updated, but now I'm waiting for either ristretto to release a new version or looking into applying the gdbus patches they made recently (otherwise 0.8.2 does't build)
<ng0>we can only have all of them in patches following each other, otherwise xfce itself won't work
<ng0>pro tip: don't try to get an straigh forward reply in the xfce channel on saturday evenings.
<roptat>or a way to work on the output of (system)
<ng0>Oh. While procrastinating and thinking about some other results, watching Disney Channel the whole day, I started working on Cinnamon for Guix. So maybe we can even have two new Gnome-derived/close Desktop next release ;)
<pmikkelsen>ng0: awesome! I would love to use cinnamon on guixSD ;)
<ng0>I'm working on cinnamon because I got bored by not doing anything at all
<oriansj>ng0: good. If you need additional things to work on, I could probably point you at a dozen programs that haven't made it into guixsd yet
<ng0>not really.. I have enough already and enough I am thinking about
<oriansj>no worries, I am buried under 4 decades of technical debt and engineering decisions myself
<ng0>most of this packaging stuff only happens because I'm taking a very long time experimenting with some other project.. I hope until the end of the year I was able to write down most of the project related stuff in digital format. I like working with paper.
<oriansj>well there are multiple wifi modules for x60 but most do have drivers and if you are really concerned buy a $5 usb wifi connector with known good libre drivers
<noobly>Oh, ok, I misunderstood your answer. So, if I understand correctly, all I will need to run GuixSD on my x60 is a new wifi chipset? Every other component on my laptop should work normally, nothing else needs to e replaced or modified?
<oriansj>no, it is likely GuixSD should work fine by default
<noobly>Is there a version that's compatible with a nonfree chipset?
<buenouanq>if you can run debian or any other normal distro, you can run guixsd
