<Tirifto>I'm trying to (re)install Guix with the script “guix-install.sh”. It reports missing OpenPGP key and asks me to fetch it from “pgp.mit.edu”. However “pgp.mit.edu” has seemingly not been responding at all for the past few days. What would be the best course of action to take, in order to fetch the key?

<pkill9>what package is aclocal in? i tried autoconf
<roptat>is there no substitute for 0.14.0 on aarch64?
<pkill9>roptat: Guix itself gets compield on every guix pull
<roptat>no, it's building binutils before getting the last version of guix
<civodul>yeah, easy to use and pretty cool if you as me :-)
<zybell_>One day I helped track down an issue with guile-squee, and found there is a fundamental (literally:in the fundament)issue with the way guix treats plugins. And there I don't only mean plugins written for a particular package, but also language bindings of general libraries per FFI. Shortly in all instances where a library is loaded with -ldl.
<zybell_>By definition such a library cant be present at build time and therefore not be a dependency. The path to that library is therefore unknown. If one tries to set a fixed path in .guix-profile that path changes with the user. It is the typical case of a m:n-Relation.
<zybell_>Even in database design, where there are more possibilities than the dynamic linker provides, the solution is additional infrastructure, in this case a table more. The dynamic linker works well in terms of directories and search-paths, so I would look for a solution there. An alternative solution could be a process plugin like dbus. Because literally every executable in guix depends on plugins, a solution to this issue should be
<zybell_>found,standardized and clearly documented.

<roptat>does guix weather depend on current guix or is the information only about master?
<pkill9>since there's multiple versions of linux-libre available, are they all supported for use by GuixSD?
