<fusion809>Nope, I'm a GNU Guile newb, must admit functional languages tend to confuse the .... out of me. Fair point, I thought it'd be as straight-forward as it is on other distros. Then again most distros I've come across have had to patch Julia in order to build it properly.
<nckx>fusion809: In my limited experience Julia is one of those ‘don't update on an empty coffee press’ packages, unfortunately.
<civodul>i tried to update Julia to 1.0 but it turned out to be terrible
<fusion809>civodul: have you tried looking at how the NixOS' team builds their Julia 1.0.1 package? Maybe their patches might be of use to you.
<_tibbe>Hi, I have a problem packaging a driver for GuixSD: Is there a way I can get the configuration file of the kernel build? It is not contained in the header package and I could not find it in the binary version.
<nckx>_tibbe: We apply some changes to the defaults in gnu/packages/linux.scm but don't ship a full config file. Why do you need it?
<nckx>Annoying that we don't seem to build the ‘configs’ module to support /proc/config.gz.
<_tibbe>nckx: I have a thinkpad with the Wacom W8001. This can be used using the input-wacom driver. But configuring this driver requires a full blown kernel source and build tree as far as I understand.
<_tibbe>There seems to be no proper alternative as far as I understand the configure.ac file
<nckx>_tibbe: Interesting. For building by hand, you can extract the exact sources used to build the kernel (guix build --source ...) and manually add those CONFIG_ options above to the .config generated by ‘make defconfig’.
<nckx>I admit that this loses badly, and wont help with packaging at all. You might find someone with more (Guix-related) kernel knowledge on guix-devel.
<_tibbe>nckx: After all this has just become a lot larger than a simple evening project. I will try my luck with the linux-console project and input-attach and try to get it working in userland. If that fails I will try to find someone who can help me with the kernel configuration. Thanks :)
