<joshuaBPMan>EternalZenith: yeah, if only AMD provided the firmware, they'd be super stellar!
<reepca>my desktop has the oldest generation of amd graphics to require proprietary microcode :(
<EternalZenith>I'm dissapointed that Dell switched to Nvidia for all of their newest Precision laptops
<joshuaBPMan>reepca: does newer AMD graphics have free and open microcode?
<reepca>joshuaBPMan: nope. Mine was barely too new.
<EternalZenith>I'm not sure if they require nonfree microcode, but I know the drivers themself are completely free
<reepca>well, I've got a radeon hd 7870 that doesn't work with linux-libre, a radeon hd 6670 that doesn't work, and the integrated graphics on my a10-7850k that don't work. Unless something changed recently, I'd expect the newer stuff also doesn't work.
<reepca>if I recall correctly several of the entries on h-node.org were wrong
<EternalZenith>Are you kidding me... I've spent days trying to figure out how to fix the "No Sim" issue on my phone that keeps appearing, and I just finished backing everything up so I can wipe and reflash everything
<leungbk>i ran `guix environment guix`, `/.bootstrap`, `./configure --localstatedir=/var`, but `make check` seems to fail on one test: `guix-download.sh`, where i wind up downloading stuff from a bad link.
<leungbk>would anyone be free to help me debug this?
<leungbk>i'm having trouble with this test run during `make check`: `+ guix download http://does.not/exist` gives me a non-empty download, but all the tests from the other files are fine
<noobly>last time I installed guix I made a shell script and shebanged it with #/bin/bash as per usual, but in guixsd that's not how it's done. this freaked me out so I left, but I'd like to return. is there any summary or cheat sheet of these kind fo differences in guixsd?
<civodul>i hear there's even direnv/guix/emacs integration floating around
<thomassgn>civodul: yeah! I actually set this up recently. There's a slight delay whenever moving between buffers in different direnvs. But I usually keep one emacs instance per "project" - to minimize things like this.
<civodul>i haven't tried it yet but i know cbaines has done great things :-)
