<jonsger>I like the idea more then this bitcoin stuff
<snape>jonsger: I was half kidding though, my appartement has a heating :)
<snape>but I don't know how I could measure the electricity expenses, so that I can share it with Mathieu, who uses it too
<jonsger>snape: but in France they usually use electricity for heating, don't they?
<snape>jonsger: it depends on the place. Some do, and some use water
<snape>g_bor: I think that the builds that are in progress won't stop when there is an issue. Also, there is no "assembly". Once a build is done, it's provided by 'guix publish'. What could happen is that they aren't registered to Cuirass' database, but it's not a big deal.
<bavier>emacsomancer: I believe the manual mentions this and gives an example
<emacsomancer>bavier: I am using a swap file, but I'm still getting a "possibly out of space" error when trying to update Icecat, and I have plenty of free space available, so I think it's not deciding to swap out
<emacsomancer>(I had this issue with guix on a foreign distro and setting the swappiness in that case resolved the issue)
<pkill9>emacsomancer: are you trying to build icecat?
<g_bor>rekado: speaking of which, I will be able to access the system with the hba-s soon again. One of our main sysadmins was ill, and the hardware project was stopped, but it will be back online soon.
<lsl88>I'm still stuck with the guix pull stuff, and I can't go on without solving it. When I rollback for another snapshot of my VM with an almost fresh install or it worked with sudo, it takes like hours. And it kind of get stuck when is is testing guile
<lsl88>More than at least two hours ago it kept in: with GUILE_LOAD_PATH=/tmp/guix-build-guile-2.2.4.drv-0/guile-2.2.4/test-suite
<reed_>Hi All, I've been working on some audio processing tools and I'd like to set up a guixsd machine that is tailored for this sort of development. I know I'd like to have the realtime kernel (PREEMPT_RT patchset). Does this mean I need to make a custom kernel package?
<lsl88>g_bor: but isn't it weird that it breaks down while running tests?
<g_bor>rekado said it takes 50 minutes on 128 cores and 1T ram.
<lsl88>ok, I don't have that hardware :( I I was thinking that maybe I could record another contribution for outreachy 2021 :P
<g_bor>lsl88: for now I guess you best bet is to run everything with berlin as substitute urls.
<lsl88>or go on playing with guix at least, which I found more useful. And I thought that I could use my retro PC for installing GuixSD on bare metal. Now i know I should not give it a try, or at least, just install it and leave it there
<lsl88>find* I don't know what't happening with my Englush
<g_bor>actually I've installed guisd on quite low end hardwares, when substitues are available that can work.
<lsl88>g_bor: ok, I will cancel the installation and add the substitutes. Hope that by tomorrow I have my guix working.
<g_bor>I also hope to have my GuixSD working by tomorrow :)
<vagrantc>i don't know if it's just bad luck, but it seems some things never have valid substitutes
<vagrantc>hrm. having troubles building qtwebkit again ... i suspect it needs more than the available 12GB of free space ... maybe i should try building it with fewer threads
