<lfam>There are also two "outputs" for the full python package
<reepca>my laptop keeps getting "guix substitute: error: host name lookup error: Name or service not known" when I try doing "guix package" or "guix pull" operations. It seems to be nondeterministic exactly when the error occurs.

<vagrantc>janneke: cool. i forget where to look for them :)
<reepca>I can retry it a second later and it'll get a fair bit farther, so using --fallback would actually take significantly longer...
<raghavgururajan>Note that the directories '/var/lib/flatpak/exports/share''/home/rg/.local/share/flatpak/exports/share' are not in the search path set by the XDG_DATA_DIRS environment variable, so applications installed by Flatpak may not appear on your desktop until the session is restarted.

<Levy[m]>Is it possible to package open source research papers and books such as the Homotopy Type Theory book which is Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0? I'm aware of the build-system just wondering if it's acceptable at all (considering SICP has been).
<vagrantc>the biggest thing is how easy it is to update something when it's a huge chain of dependencies that either need to be added or updated ... in debian, that takes a lot of iterations over packaging, build environment creation, sticking them into a repository, and getting them into debian in the right order
<Levy[m]>lfam: I'll send a mail later this evening. Thanks
<vagrantc>with guix, i can sometimes package a whole chain of dependencies in a single pass editing the package definitions in git
<Levy[m]>Mostly interested in papers related to Coq and such act as documentation half of the time...
<lfam>vagrantc: Although we learn from and build on work done previously in other distros, I think the ease of packaging in Guix and Nix are a big factor in the growth they've had so far
<lfam>Sometimes it's still hard, but at least the easy things are easy
<ngz>I wish it wasn't a Java package. I'm miserable at packaging these.
<mikadozero>At the end of a guix pull it says "1 package in profile". What does that mean?
<lfam>mikadozero: `guix pull` manages its own profile, separate from the one where you install packages with `guix package`. I don't have a full `guix pull` output to refer to, but I assume it refers to the Guix package that it has built and installed into that special-purpose profile.
<Elon_Satoshi>i don't think I'm going to write any packages until I install some browsers, figure out how to close the lid without permanently freezing the system, and get some sleep before I write any packages
<Elon_Satoshi>Would you be willing to handhold me through my first package or two?
<nckx>netconsole's a last-ditch way to have kernel messages sent to another machine over a LAN. Like a very basic one-way serial cable. It's a pain to configure but can be useful in hopeless cases. Try everything else first.
<nckx>Elon_Satoshi: I'm dead tired (it's past 5 in the morning here). Take a look at elogind-service in the manual if disabling the lid switch entirely is an acceptable work-around for you for now. Setting handle-lid-switch to ignore should do the trick.
<nckx>(Netconsole's not a screen, just kernel messages sent over UDP for logging.)
<Elon_Satoshi>nckx: Can I edit /gnu/store/*-logind.conf or /gnu/store/*-elogind-232.4/etc/elogin.d/logind.conf to temporarily disable suspend?
<Elon_Satoshi>Good night. I guess I'll cover my laptop with a bath mat to keep off the dust.
<CornBurglar>Hey, I'm trying to use context from TeXLive and I recieve the error:mtxrun | unknown script 'context.lua' or 'mtx-context.lua' Is this a path issue? It seems that mtx-context.lua exists in the store.
<CornBurglar>I don't think I got any message about setting environment variables after installing texlive
***rekado_ is now known as rekado
<rekado>Elon_Satoshi: files under /gnu/store should never be modified.
<rekado>Elon_Satoshi: instead you should modify the operating system configuration file and reconfigure.
<raghavgururajan>Can data be edited (not overwriting, but changing/altering) without file system? For example, BIOS Boot Partition in a GPT contains grub's core.img data but without file system. Can someone boot live system via USB and edit the data in that BIOS boot partition?
<rekado>allana: I have a slightly older version of the Librem 13 (v2) and I’m not fully satisfied. It’s probably not a bad machine, but I’ve been having some trouble with it and miss my old Thinkpad.
<allana>roptat: Yes, I suppose that I could become better at typing. Although right now I really need to see the keyboard. I'm a native english speaker learning another language, and I find that I really do need to look down for the characters that differ from the english alphabet.
<roptat>did you attach a virtual disk on which you could install guix?
<roptat>mh... I don't know how to implement this function: I want to pass some lists to it, and it should return a list of lists, where each list contains one element of each list I initially passed the function. It would return every possible combination
<allana>Does anyone have experience with gnupg and guix? I'm trying to import my private key and I get "no pinentry" errors. pinentry is installed under my profile. Running "gpgconf" shows the path to the pinentry binary.
<hio>wow the installation completely destroyed my commandline, now I can only type in weird wingdings font
<nckx>hio: Just ‘mount /dev/sda1 /boot/efi’ would have worked (assuming ‘BIOS boot’ was a typo for ‘EFI system partition’). Why did you add ‘-t’? You're right that there's no exact command in the manual, but installing Guix System without a grasp of GNU/Linux basics would've ended badly anyway.
<Swedneck>I'm waiting for 1.0 until I even think about using guixsd, for this reason
<hio>I get the impression that 1.0 isn't going to change any of this, especially since people here flat out refuse that there is a problem to begin with
<nckx>Swedneck: Yeah, I'm always conflicted about advertising Guix too widely for now TBH.
<nckx>PSA: probably best not to waste more time on trolls. ‘What's the point of openbsd when Linux exists anyway? cmon, wake up. Join Linux, we have to fight together against Micro$oft’ — hio in #openbsd
<tune>I managed to get GuixSD installed in the past with the manual and some minimal irc help
<tune>it's the sort of thing you just do once for the most part so it doesn't seem like a huge deal if it's a bit tricky
<Swedneck>i think the differences between guix and like, everything else can be a bit of an issue though
<Swedneck>guile certainly doesn't help make things easier for newbies like me
<nckx>Funny. I used to write C just like that a loong time ago :-)
<nckx>So both C and Scheme don't share your preferred indentation conventions, but both will still work if you insist on it. The trouble only comes when you want to push it upstream, but the same is true for the Linux kernel or any other well-run project.
<hio>nckx: can you please remove your communist symbols from your realname? it is very offensive, communism is an ideology that committed mass murder at a larger scale than Hitler. You should be ashamed of yourself
***ChanServ sets mode: +o nckx
***hio was kicked by nckx (hio)
<lfam>This channel is for discussion of Guix and related topics.
***nckx sets mode: +b hio!*@*
<lfam>Additionally, please make an effort to be kind and assume that others are speaking in good faith
<Elon_Satoshi>i can just imagine hio complaining somewhere about how #guix's dirty communist admin banned them in a monsterous violation of their free speech and that Guix absolutely sucks and is communist software or something
<nckx>Elon_Satoshi: ‘This project is dedicated to my European heritage. It is strictly to be understood as a statement against the saccarine "sweet" liberal lie of "multiculturalism" which is going to destroy Europe as we know it, in particular against the Merkel regime selling out Europe for nothing as we watch. #TeamWhite’
<ng0>will guix have a problem with python2 and python3 being required for a project? we have this state in-between moving where 0.11.0 of gnunet will have python3.7 + python37-future for the testsuite and python2.7 + python2.7-future for gnunet-qr
<ng0>no idea if the parallel installation was ever fixed.. I can have both side by side here
<bgardner>Good afternoon guix, I get deprecation warnings on mcron-service but the documentation seems to still point to that - is there updated docs anywhere indicating how to switch correctly to mcron-service-type?
<rekado>nckx: the code of that package includes the text “#TeamWhite” :-/
