<reepca-laptop>So I turned off the wifi on my laptop and plugged in the desktop's connection and sure enough, download got stuck at 100%. So I tried a different cord and a different port on the router, but it's still getting stuck. Bizarre. Anyone know a good free software router to recommend?
<reepca>So I'm trying to work around the weird router issue by using wget to download stuff and then using guix download file:///... but some sources have snippets associated with them, and the builder for the source-fetching derivation wants to do the downloading itself. Any ideas how to work around it now?
<leungbk>i've been stuck on this all day; can someone help me out?
<nikola_i>11:23 am <nikola_i> hello. I use nixos right now. I wish to switch to guix. But my main concern is I want to use packages available in nixos channels. I knows I can use nix package manager in guix. But is it possible to use nixos channels and nix packages in guix?
<YJSNPI>Hi, everyone. I recently installed GuixSD on my laptop, and I find something strange... (This is just an intro) someone put librime, which is an input method engine's core lib, into gnu/packages/ibus.scm, but I think it shouldn't be there since librime is somewhat universal, it also has a fcitx frontend. So is it possible to move it into another module...?
<YJSNPI>By the way, in some cases fcitx actually works better than iBus, but seems nobody here is interested in it 😂
<YJSNPI>Other IMEs like anthy and libpinyin are also in the same situation
<YJSNPI>And... both iBus and fcitx are lacking Qt plugins (at least for Qt4)...
<cnmne>leungbk: just got to where you were in the build process :) looking again at the log, it mentions bin/sisugem might be unsupported as a symlink, and later (l 89) it mentions `gem pristine sisu` might fix something that seemed to go wrong in the install
<leungbk>i noticed that too, but i wasn't sure how to put it into the build process. i guess i can try using the substitute macro
<cnmne>sneek: later tell leungbk i got a ruby-sisu.scm file that builds successfully; i deleted the symlink and copied the linked file instead. not good enough at packaging yet to actually use the package, so i don't really know if it's really working, but it builds/installs ! i can paste you later if you haven't already figured it out :)
<ngz>Hello. Something is wrong with my Guix installation on a foreign distro. Guix pull reports hundreds of new or updated packages since last update even though it was yesterday. I suspect my .guix-profile/bin/guix is pointing to the wrong place.
<ngz>Where should it point to? /var/guix/profiles/per-user/user/current-guix/bin/guix ? Or some other place?
<cnmne>i think that's correct; this week i pulled a lot of packages from texlive and r. were those the main offenders?
<rekado>ngz: you shouldn’t have .guix-profile/bin/guix at all.
<rekado>you source etc/profile and then you export PATH=$HOME/.config/guix/current/bin:$PATH
<ngz>What I mean is if "./guix-profile/.../profile" sets FOO, and I happen to update FOO in my "~/.profile", it could lead to the same problem. So maybe a good hygiene would be to first source "./guix-profile/.../profile", then do other stuff in ".profile".
<ngz>While I'm at it, I have another pretty annoying issue with Gnome (from foreign distro, i.e., Debian testing) and Guix. I have to "unset GI_TYPELIB_PATH; unset XDG_DATA_DIRS" in my ".profile", or I cannot get past GDM, i.e, the session crashes and I'm brought back to it.
<ngz>I don't know how to get a backtrace from this crash to help debugging.
<pkill9>hmm, guix said it would only download something small but it's also downloading qt4 which is a graft
<ngz>It seems that texlive-texmf is failing to build.
<sneek>leungbk, cnmne says: i got a ruby-sisu.scm file that builds successfully; i deleted the symlink and copied the linked file instead. not good enough at packaging yet to actually use the package, so i don't really know if it's really working, but it builds/installs ! i can paste you later if you haven't already figured it out :)
<leungbk>i have this right now, and am trying to run `gem pristine` on something that the computer asserts is not there:
