<pkill9>rekado: I want to force my thinkpad's internal battery to discharge when the external battery reaches 40%, however there's isn't a /sys interface for it out of the box (there is for setting battery charigng thresholds though). However, I think it's possible because this kernel module i found called 'tpacpi-bat' claims to support forcing battery discharging, and it uses the 'acpi_call' kernel module (neither of
<pkill9>which are in the linux kernel). Since it's a hassle trying to add kernel modules to the linux build tree and test it, then recompile it if/when it fails, and I only want to use a couple ACPI calls, then I wondered if I could make the neccessary acpi calls without tpacpi-bat or acpi_call, i.e. without adding any kernel modules to the linux build tree
<cryptocat1094>What should I do to fix this command: guix system disk-image --target=armhf-linux-gnu --system=armhf-linux -e '((@ (gnu system install) os-with-u-boot) (@ (gnu system install) installation-os) "thisshouldbeanerror")'
<cryptocat1094>It fails at the point where it notices I'm not currently on an armhf. I'm wondering if there's a way to cross-compile without using an intermediary VM.
<cryptocat1094>(Or if Guix can take care of the provisioning and tear-down by itself)
<rekado>mbakke: I sent it to guix-patches and Cc to you. Feel free to apply it and update polkit.
<amz31>sneek_: regarding the piece of code we were discussing late last night, I don't understand why it's not '#:builder (lamda (out %build-inputs %outputs) ...) instead of '#:builder (begin ...) with the current from the lexical environment is very difficiult to guess without diving into of how that particular piece of code is called
<OrangeShark>amz31: I wonder if it would be a good idea to reboot emacsy
<amz31>the graphical part of things is not clear to me, I mean what engine is best. that said the ux is different of what I have in mind
<amz31>I mean you have some kind of codified language that we use in emacs, but in the end I think there is an under appreciated natural language query engine that can use things like the 20 questions that can nail down queries to actual, say gnu commands
