<chewieQC>I'm having problem connecting to the internet with GuixSD running in a qemu virtual machine. I was wondering if I had to launch some background deamon for DNS or something, or if the networking interface is not supported in linux-libre?
<fps>chewieQC: there was a long standing bug, dunno if it's fixed yet. does bringing the network interface down and up again help?
<ng0>Oh… I just learned about 'disallowed-references'… does that mean, without having read the code, that I could strip off the unnecessary glibc reference the tiny e3 editor keeps (or check if it doesn't break when I remove this)?
<lfam>ng0: It checks if there is a reference and causes the build to fail if there is. It doesn't strip references, it just checks for them
<ng0>(okay my example e3 doesn't keep this reference anyway)
<OriansJ>literally the job of a compiler is tokenize input file into a token stream, process into an ast, apply various optimizations and simply dump into a binary. No where in that is anything to do with all of that junk
<bavier>janneke: ok, yeah, I can imagine it easier to include absolute references
<bavier>e.g. to locate headers, helper scripts, etc
<janneke>thought i got all them out by using -rpath=$ORIGIN/... etc in all places :-(
<bavier>but fixing things like that I think is something the gcc devs wouldn't mind upstreaming
<janneke>i'm currently targeting 4.7.4, because 7.2.0 seems more difficult to get bit-reproducible
<janneke>usage of hash maps that i can't find--plus 4.7 is the latest one that has any chance of being bootstrappable
<bavier>right, as a bootstrap target it's a good choice
<manumanumanu>I am using guix mostly because of guile, and now I want to try out potluck, however the installation instruction in Andy Wingo's post to the guile mailing list says I should use the "guix channel" command. I don't have a guix channel though.
