<dustyweb>and the gc would be the super frustrating part! :)
<jonjits[m]>I'm using guix package manager on top of funtoo (a gentoo distro). I am now getting a weird error when trying to install software "Cannot write: No space left on device". I have plenty of diskspace/inodes left on the device where /gnu/store is. Is it using a tmp dir potentially somewhere else that could cause this?
<mekeor>civodul: you once showed me your fix to make cups-drivers be able to use ghostscript. has this already be merged into master? this would be so nice!
<snape>it allows one to split a big file into different pages
<snape>and then, with 'forward-page' and 'backward-page', you can navigate through them
<Apteryx>snape: sweet. Works treat with C-x [, C-x ].
<Apteryx>Hmm? ls ~/.cache/guix/pull/ -> pjmkglp4t7znuugeurpurzikxq3tnlaywmisyr27shj7apsnalwq; git fetch && git reset --hard pjmkglp4t7znuugeurpurzikxq3tnlaywmisyr27shj7apsnalwq -> fatal: ambiguous argument 'pjmkglp4t7znuugeurpurzikxq3tnlaywmisyr27shj7apsnalwq': unknown revision or path not in the working tree.
<Apteryx>I guix pulled this morning. How can this be?
<Apteryx>the git commands are ran in my ~/src/guix checkout
<lfam>Apteryx: I'm not sure how that random string is supposed to represent. Is it supposed to be a Git commit?
<Apteryx>Ah, what I had done before was more like this I think: pushd ~/.cache/guix/pull/* && git log -1; popd. Sorry for the confusion!
<Apteryx>Your suggestion is much simpler though! I'll stick to it :)
<Apteryx>I've got the full list of the broken github packages... now to automate updating the hashes directly in the guix sources.
<Apteryx>Could there be a way to guix pull using a locally built guix? I find myself wanting to use 'guix pull' to safeguard a working guix not susceptible to be GC'd, but then have to compile stuff twice because I also want to keep my ~/src/guix up-to-date.
<Apteryx>Something like 'guix pull --from-checkout=.' would be nice I guess.
<Apteryx>Or maybe I could just hack something to steal the .go of the guix pull'd version into my checkout to speed up things... Eh.
