<DuskandDey>Hello everyone, have been enjoying learning to install guix on my laptop but have hit a wall. Because I use an intel wifi card (No I can't do anything about that), I've had to put in a different kernel. sorted all that out, got it to compile, but now I just get a solitary invalid hash error from `guix system init`. Ingreasing verbosity shows something about linking git-checkout but Gives nothing else besides mutex lo
<DuskandDey>…I can do to better identify the issue's source?
<Mlin>Ah I see. I'm having a problem right now with changing my shell to zsh. When I run chsh -s zsh it returns `PAM: Authentication error`, and when I run `which zsh` it returns `~/.guix-profile/bin/zsh`
<str1ngs>Mlin: I don't think chsh works with guixsd. set it in user-account with shell. then reconfigure with guix system reconfigure config.scm
<shiranaihito>well, since postgres (for example) won't actually do anything with the files before it's started, i'd expect guix not to require the files to be present when applying a system config either
<shiranaihito>it feels kind of "hacky" if i need to put the files in place, just to be able to apply the system config
<str1ngs>guix system is stateful though, it will start and stop running when they change
<shiranaihito>huh? the files will be monitored for changes automatically?
<str1ngs>it's actually not hacky at all. since something placed into the store can fall under previous profiles
<str1ngs>so profile-1 and profile-2 can either use the same config or not depending on it's hash
<str1ngs>you dont have to use local-file you can use computed-file
<shiranaihito>not sure what "manual tracking" would mean, with regard to the psql config file's contents, for example.. sometimes you may change a setting in it, but i still don't see it as guix's duty to manage the whole file
<str1ngs>or plain-file with content embedded in your config.scm
<shiranaihito>so the latter two would not result in guix "managing" the files?
<shiranaihito>aww crap.. i wonder if i need to adopt another editor/IDE just for Guix configs
<wigust>shiranaihito: #:config-file is an argument to postgresql-service function. You could just use postgresql-service-type and change postgresql-configuration without worring about postgresql-service function.
<dustyweb>rekado_: iirc you had to do something specific to get your scanner working, and you told me what it was, but now I can't find it
<laurus>Hello, I'm wondering if GuixSD is planning to update its version of Lxqt which is a bit outdated.
<efraim>I don't think anyone is actively workig on it, patches welcome :)
<ConfusedLizzard>what is font which is used on the installmedium called? It looks like math mode from from LaTeX.
<DuskandDey>So I've just installed guix and am having a strange problem once it boots. For some reason I get a bunch of messages about services that have failed to start, including file-systems and term-tty(1-6) and I can't figure out why. I'm pretty much just using the bare-bones.scm from the install disk, so can't tell what's gone wrong
<taohansen>any Guixers who've gotten AppImages to run on their GuixSD system?
<DuskandDey>so it seems that shepherd is trying to start my services in the wrong order, it's starting host-name after trying to start term-tty1 etc and failing, any idea where I can find and fix this broken behaviour?
<amz3>hey, I have again this urgent need to write another cli tool for guix

<ConfusedLizzard>where do i report bad packages? I installed lxrandr and ofc it does not work without xrandr. But xrandr was not a dependcy
