<marusich>It seems that tests/gexp.scm and tests/pack.scm fail for me on current master.
<marusich>Do these tests fail for anyone else on current master branch?
<marusich>It seems commit 47a60325ca650e8fc1a291c8655b4297f4de8deb introduced the tests/pack.scm failure.
<marusich>I'm not sure yet, but it looks like maybe, in that commit, in self-contained-tarball (in guix/scripts/pack.scm), we might be passing in an incorrect value for the first argument of relative-file-name.
<marusich>In the test, it appears to be getting called like this: (relative-file-name "/bin" "/home/marusich/guix-upgrade-gnucash/test-tmp/store/3j3mrl1sf3bcx4fzlz655mzsp4bir54j-profile/bin/guile")
<marusich>Which evaluates to: "../home/marusich/guix-upgrade-gnucash/test-tmp/store/3j3mrl1sf3bcx4fzlz655mzsp4bir54j-profile/bin/guile"
<marusich>Should we even be calling relative-file-name there?
<marusich>I've created a bug report for it since I'm not sure what the intended purpose of calling relative-file-name is there.
<snape>Also, I'm still not happy about my workflow with X terminals. I use Xterm and their buffers are named Xterm<n>, which makes it difficult to know which terminal contains what. I'd love some way to have a preview of all terminals, or something like that.
<rekado>janneke: if by desktops you mean workspaces: yes.
<rekado>janneke: not sure if it supports multiple displays out of the box.
<efraim>snape: terminology does that, if you don't mind pulling in efl. Otherwise I hear good things about tilix
<vagrantc>it also really depends on how likely you are to get a substitute
<vagrantc>if you end up recompiling the linux-libre kernel, for example, that needs a fair amount of free space
<vagrantc>but if you just download it from a substitute, it doesn't take much
<pkill9>yeah, i have some custom packages so I end up gettign the source + build requirements
<pkill9>as for user data, i would typically put that on a separate harddrive or partition
<oswin>ok ok, well because I have good storage space, I choosed 100GB, i am busy now to install we will see... after the installation, I should update the system with, guix pull && guix system reconfigure ...
<oswin>i asked because it is virtual system, so normally i prefere to use only 10 - 20Gb, but I will not make me difficult this time :-)
<vagrantc>if it's a virtual machine, it shouldn't be too hard to grow it if needed
<snape>it also depends on whether you use graphical softwares or not
<ng0>mostly fixing up python bits in GNUnet, and working on the design for my system
<ng0>I got a job now and university.. the subway drive is where most of my work happens now
<amz3>btw I continue to work on my idea to help datascientist, I showed my idea to a ex-colleague and he told he was up to something and that my database can be of some help... seems like he is going to build a company. And MAYBE we will use scheme
<amz3>ng0: I can not work while comuting, sad story, I just listen to music like zombie
<mubarak>Guest2387: sorry, you should create etc directory in /mnt "mkdir /mnt/etc" and move config.scm to /mnt/etc/ . After that "herd start cow-store /mnt" and "guix system init /mnt/etc/config.scm" to start system installation"
<Guest2387>mkfs.ext4 -L my-root /dev/sda1 | mount LABEL=my-root /mnt | mkdir /mnt/etc | cp /etc/configuration/desktop.scm /mnt/etc/config.scm | zile /mnt/etc/config.scm
<mubarak>then type (device "my-root") instead of (device "/dev/sda1")
<mubarak>and do the herd ... and guix system ... like above
<lxo>Guest2387, hay que crear etc en /mnt y poner config.scm allí, poner (device "my-root") donde está (device "/dev/sda1") y luego "herd start cow-store /mnt" y "guix system init /mnt/etc/config.scm" para empezar la instalación
<lxo>Guest2387, mira el ejemplo en paste.debian.net arriba; elige Xfce como desktop y añade ntfs-3g a los paquetes
<mubarak>sorry "guix system init /mnt/etc/config.scm /mnt"
<lxo>Guest2387, faltó " /mnt" al final del comando guix system init arriba
<lxo>Guest2387, cuándo se complete la instalación, reinicia y, antes de instalar cualquier paquete, corre "guix pull"
<rekado>uniq10: I’m not sure, but I think it causes computeFSClosure to include the derivations that are responsible for a given output.
<uniq10>rekado: Thank you. That's what I think too. But I am a bit confused as to what that flag will mean when `flipDirection` is set to true. In that case it appears to behave like `includeOutputs`. I hope I am right here too.
<mubarak>Guest2387, Their is one thing I want to mention is trisquel forum: https://trisquel.info/en/forum. Here their are a many spanish users and they use different GNU/Linux disto and than trisquel including Parabola, hyberbola and GuixSD, they are quit helpful. they are also in #trisquel IRC
<lxo>Guest2387, mubarak quisiera mencionar el forum de trisquel. hay muchos usuarios de diversas distros que hablan español allá, ej parabola, hyperbola y guixsd, y ayudan mucho. también están en IRC #trisquel
<Guest2387>lxo: ¿como se guarda y que mas modifica en ese archivo?
<mubarak>good! now choose xfce or GNOME or specify you favorite window manager or desktop environment in packages like i did to ntfs-3g
<lxo>mubarak, how does one save, and what else to change in this file?
<lxo>Guest2387, bien! ahora elige xfce o gnome o especifica tu entorno de desktop favorito en paquetes como mubarak hizo con ntfs-3g (en el paste arriba, supongo)
<mubarak>C+s for save and C+x C+c for exit. also C+x C+c ask for save changes so you could press"y" for yes
<uniq10>rekado: I understood the difference between referrers and references. My question was regarding the effect of `includeDerivers` when the direction was flipped. When the direction is flipped `includeDerivers` seems to be adding derivation outputs. Thanks :-)
<uniq10>nix/libstore/misc.cc: line 35. As per this.
<reepca>ah uniq10, finally we're on at the same time. I don't suppose you got my message about MS_PRIVATE? I meant to have the bot leave a message, but it seems he's gone AWOL.
