<Apteryx>Should I report this kind of thing: collision encountered: /gnu/store/zkrfy7yd05v6d9614hqyc7s1178mc8r0-inkscape-0.92.1/share/icons/hicolor/icon-theme.cache /gnu/store/l3db81gi51d0j8q8f35fq2sra2c3c6x4-gnucash-2.6.17/share/icons/hicolor/icon-theme.cache /gnu/store/62956n8habdbx6h3yin5vvsrbx02wbmj-vinagre-3.22.0/share/icons/hicolor/icon-theme.cache ?
<Apteryx>Well, there's alss xdg-mime-database and shared-mime-info clashing.
<jlicht>What are some ongoing efforts on `guix pull' using quite some RAM? I used to have a decrepit eeepc running some services in my home network, but guix pull either crashes or is very slow (with a big swap file)
<efraim>iirc andy and ludo say its a guile issue. In the mean time I'm running from git
<jlicht>if only I could offload to my much faster desktop machine ;-)
<jlicht>but that is definitely a workable solution to my issue. Thanks efraim
<Apteryx>jlicht: I plan to do just this (offload to my desktop)!
<Apteryx>Has anyone a small function that returns the debbugs web page URL of the bug I'm looing at in debbugs-gnu interface?
<Apteryx>Eh, I might just hack it, it looks trivial.
<lfam>Also, Apteryx, I think it's better to use URLs like <https://bugs.gnu.org/26877>, since they will probably last longer. The other URLs "hardcode" the Debbugs implementation details which are subject to change
<jlicht>Apteryx: How can one offload guix pull (or equivalent shenanigans /w git)?
<Apteryx>Actually I'm not clear on how offload works (yet), what I was thinking of doing was to use "guix publish" on the desktop machine which would be installed with the same (or a superset) config as my laptop. There would be a cronjob doing guix pull & guix package -u regurlary so that all the packages I use would be present and up-to-date on the desktop, ready to be fetched as substitutes from my laptop.
<bavier>lfam: iirc davexunit struggled with ruby packages that want to have .git directories while building
<lfam>Ah, interesting news, bavier. I'll have to ask him for the details
<efraim>Apteryx: sounds like a use case for cuirass
<bavier>lfam: I suppose though the solution would depend, as civodul suggested, on what the git repo is being used for during the build
<lfam>Yeah, and I haven't figured that out completely yet
<catonano>I misspelled their name amd yet they understood o_O
***luto__ is now known as luto
<catonano>I'd like to reply to the Cyril Roelandt who sent a patch series to the dev mailing list bt I'm not sure exactly what to write to them. Maybe there is some place that has not been updated yet and still instructs people to send patches to the dev mailing list ?
<marusich>Is there a good resource for figuring out why a given website "doesn't work" in Icecat?
<catonano>marusich: because IceCat is based on an older version of Firefox
<jonsger1>marusich: I had also huge problems with Icecat (don't use it anymore). you could maybe go to about:config, klick on "status" and watch out those preferences who have status "modified"
<marusich>It's such a bummer that a lot of websites I want to use, like my banking website, don't work with it (or even the GNOME browser, "Web")
<marusich>jonsger1, I appreciate the suggestion, but that sounds tedious, and I wouldn't feel super comfortable nullifying the changes that the Icecat devs have made to try to make the browser more freedom/privacy friendly.
<marusich>Maybe if there were a way to do that on a per website basis?
<bavier>I prefer it with privacy-badger add-on over "Web", whose "block ads" preferences option doesn't seem to work for me
<Apteryx>(well this and disabling LibreJS of course)
