<noobly>dumbo question, but GuixSD should work fine on ANY system, no matter how freedom-restricting, so long as it's in a VM, correct?
<ZombieChicken>I was wondering how much the system init file has changed since ~0.11
<ZombieChicken>Uh, doesn't Guix have LVM support? The online docs says it doesn't, but I seem to recall someone implemented that a while back...
<ZombieChicken>nvm. I'll give guix another try in maybe 6 more versions in hopes I can get it to install without having to dive through source code and trying to decypher error messages that make no sense.
<ng0>efraim: I can't really connect to your cgit, but: if you have debootstrap, do you have a dpkg packaged? I've been working on that for a while, my only application is extraction deb files, which should already work.. maybe you have it too and we could compare them
<DoublePlusGood23>rekado_: how would I go about it? Just hack around with the regular kernel expression?
<rekado_>DoublePlusGood23: you can create your own kernel package by inheriting from the existing linux-libre packages, and apply your patches there. Then in your GuixSD operating-system configuration you need to override the kernel field.
<mbakke>I don't know enough about Blender to give a good suggestion. But I guess it's better to just package these plugins separately rather than propagating these (large) packages for every Blender user.
<mbakke>Please file a bug report, let's see what others say :)
<quiliro>they are not necessary to run blender...it is just that their binary ship with those plugins and their dependencies by default...we need not do the same...only include them when user asks
<ng0>so what do we do about README.md's etc..? I seem to recall the emacs-build-system copies some unwanted files aswell, and I seem to be unable (for now) to exclude README.md, *.md, etc and predict whatever unwanted file an even larger set of vim extensions could contain
<ng0>the vim-build-system, because Makefiles are rare there and an exception, copies all files into place
<ng0>I can't just say "copy all folders containing only .vim" because vim extensions use more than just .vim
<ng0>and I have no list of that either, can be .vader, .template, .yml, etc
<ng0>so for now I recursively delete .git and .gitignore in the folders and _try_ to exclude other files from install (it works moderately crappy)
<ng0>we'd get file collisions for "README.md" etc in '/share/vim/vimfiles/' but I guess that's okay.
<ng0>I'm making a FIXME note in the build-system and will send it soon
<mbakke>ng0: could we automatically make a subfolder corresponding to the package nsme?
