<allana>Hi, I am building a go program. when I reach the "reset-gzip-timestamps" build phase, I get an error: "In procedure open-fdes: Permission denied". Has anyone had an experience like this, and can anyone guide me through fixing this error?
<reepca>any idea why xterm would be honoring ~/.Xdefaults but uxterm wouldn't be?
<reepca>never mind, turns out you need UXTerm* lines instead of XTerm* lines in there when launched as UXTerm.
<apteryx_>I'm trying to build a package from a local git checkout: guix build --firstname.lastname@example.org=$HOME/src/supercollider supercollider
<apteryx_>but I get the error: guix build: error: sendfile: Broken pipe. Any ideas?
***apteryx_ is now known as apteryx
<reepca>anyone know of a good font that has ツ in it but also is nicely monospaced in xterm? Apparently xterm can only use a single font (as far as I've been able to discern), which is pretty annoying
<efraim>is that a composed character? I tried ") to get it but it didn't work
<reepca>dunno, it's some fancy asian character that I use in my M-x shrugs ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
<efraim>I normally alternate between "dejavu sans mono (book)" and terminus
<reepca>I wonder if there's a way to create fonts that are "unions" of other fonts for situations like this where for some reason it wants only one font... I think.
<reepca>dejavu sans mono doesn't display it, installing terminus to give it a shot
<reepca>In gui emacs I see it, and M-x describe-char tells me it's from unifont. But I tried that in xterm and it looked pretty bad. And then I try unifont mono and it looks good but doesn't have that character...
<rekado>jackhill: it is not clear what “free service” means. If it is free software and it doesn’t steer the user to installing non-free software then it is fine.
<jackhill>rekado: thanks. In this case the service is primarily GitHub, and, at least for me, using those packages instead of the web interface with non-free JS (and easy scripting from emacs, etc) is a step in the right directrion freedom-wise.
<jackhill>they are free sofware, and don't recommend installing additional software, so I think it would be fine.
<janneke>yes, one of the big challanges of bootstrapping--what to choose
<rekado>a few of the net-snmp tests fail on berlin, but they pass on my workstation.
<bavier>speaking of bootstrapping, I was thinking of trying to add aarch64 support to our GHC package. The bootstrap binary would need to be a different version, since aarch64 support wasn't added until 8.2, iirc
<bavier>so rather than 7.8 -> 8.0 -> 8.4, we'd have 8.2 -> 8.4 for aarch64
