<Copenhagen_Bram>I just burned guixsd-install-0.16.0.x86_64-linux.iso onto a USB drive and plugged the drive into a Lenovo Thinkpad t400 laptop with Libreboot installed. I selected the option "Search ISOLINUX menu (USB) [u]" and the screen blinks and returns back to the same menu
<CornBurglar>Hey, I'm on Fedora trying to use guix, but when I invoke 'systemctl start guix-daemon.service', 'systemctl | grep guix-daemon.service' yields 'guix-daemon.service loaded failed failed Build daemon for GNU Guix'
<ngz>strverscmp probably doesn't handle pre-releases, hence the `pre-release' silly idea.
<civodul>ngz: hah! well "everyone else" has 1.0b come after 1.0 i guess
<ngz>Perhaps we could rewrite strverscmp in Scheme, with an optional argument defining the rule set used. For example (version>? "1.0" "1.0b2" 'python) would return #t.
<rendaw>Hello! Been googling for a while, but can anyone point me to previous discussions/articles/help pages regarding using guix on docker? Tried the naive way of running guix-install.sh on debian:stretch but no luck. Looking to set up a stable build on a CI service
<rendaw>I found a patch and some instructions on the mailing list from a couple years ago, but it's fairly hefty and risks turning this from a 1-night project to a 1-week project
<rekado>it could be, for example, that a library needs other packages to be propagated because the pkg-config file declares it in the “Requires” field.
<rekado>meson should give you some hints in the logs. I remember it’s not verbose enough, so you may have to run the pkg-config command by yourself in a suitable environment to get a good error message.
<pkill9>yes that was the issue. changing all 'inputs' to 'propagated-inputs' in the package dependency let it get built, thanks rekado
<ngz>OOC, has anyone installed GNU Guix on a OLinuXino?
<rekado>pkill9: it’s best to check which of them really need to be propagated.
<rekado>let’s not propagate all of them needlessly.
<pkill9>and the pkg-config file in the package dependency does indeed have a requires part
<pkill9>yeah, it was just to see if it would fix the build
<eubarbosa>lol, my Debian System has more Guix packages than its apt packages
<OriansJ>eubarbosa: the conversion process is nearly complete
<eubarbosa>OriansJ: Once I get to feel more comfortable with Scheme plan to move on to GuixSD... :D
<OriansJ>eubarbosa: actually one can do with very little scheme if one sticks to manifests
<civodul>rekado: neat! how did you do that? (fixing kerning)
<OriansJ>eubarbosa: well it is what is expected when no grown ups get involved in making infrastructure in a community of people who think merging a pull request with an explicit Remote backdoor is 100% A-OK
<rekado>civodul: I looked at the kerning of the Guix logo text and then adjusted the kerning of the “Days” text for each letter.
<OriansJ>eubarbosa: work requirements or not comfortable with emacs?
<eubarbosa>OriansJ: work. Home-laptop is fully free hehe
<eubarbosa>Sadly, more and more all Web tools are getting more and more dependent on Google/MS/Facebook
<OriansJ>eubarbosa: Have a similiar problem myself; stuck having to deal with Windows 10 at work; You'll be amazed how hard people will stick their fingers in their ears and humm loudly when you provide proof WIndows 10 Violates HIPPA for an organization required by law to comply with HIPPA
<eubarbosa>OriansJ: gladly I dont need to deal with windows... yet
<eubarbosa>But Ive heard Emacs works fine under Bill's System...
<OriansJ>eubarbosa: I suggest emacs inside of virtualbox/vmware/etc with a share folder
<OriansJ>If it wasn't for virtual machines my productivity at work would drop by a factor of 20
