<divansantana>Hmm trying to run a foreign package (qutebrowser) on top of guixsd. The browser fails to launch with 'could not initialize GLX'. Any one have an idea why that would be? I've tried c.qt.force_software_rendering = 'software-opengl' in it's config, but that doesn't help.
<jonsger>rekado: but the Disk itself is not from Dell or?
<civodul>rekado: excellent, we're already taking advantage of RAID :-)
<rekado>jonsger: it’s a Dell-branded disk (and with a “Certified by Dell” label), but manufactured by HGST, which is Western Digital AFAIK.
<rekado>civodul: yeah, we’ve been running off one of the hot spares, which was resilvered automatically.
<rekado>BTW: I think we can get even more storage with some configuration changes. 37TB is a bit low for the number of disks and RAID 6. I may have forgotten to delete a virtual disk that we used to play with storage settings.
<janneke>rekado: yeah, i "stole" some stuff from guix/* and other places
<janneke>i'd like if we could find/create a place for a shared shelly library functions
<g_bor>I have seen some hints that an efi implementation is free to expose any device to later stages, but this seems to be firmware specific, and one has to configure this at the firmware level...
<rekado>janneke: there are a lot of neat things that are currently only found in guix/* that I think would be great as separate libraries.
<janneke>rekado: great, i thought so too...i boldly tried to give them a home in (gash shell-utils), but i'd be also quite happy if we created a (guile shell) package -- or even move them to guile proper
<janneke>in any case, guile will become an amazing shelly scripting language :-D
<civodul>basically, as long as you have both python and python-foo in the same profile, --search-paths will suggest PYTHONPATH
<snape>I want to package a Gajim plugin that would add a python dependency to gajim. The user doesn't need to have python in their profile, but they need PYTHONPATH so that Gajim can find the python package propagated by the plugin.
<mbakke>rekado: I've built it on multiple machines with varying levels of parallelism, so presumably not.
<tune>did GuixSD running with Hurd ever become a thing? I'm seeing results from a year or two ago
<ngz>Hello. On my main user, "guix --version" reports "guix (GNU Guix) d5401375099", whereas on root, it does report "guix (GNU Guix) 0.15.0-5.1d0be47". I call "guix pull" on both users everytime. So I guess there's something wrong in my root setup. Probably a wrong link or so. Is there any pointer to fix that?
<mbakke>ngz: How do you become root? Typically you need to use "sudo -i" or "su -" in order to source the relevant login files.
