<rvgn>Hi All! I have composed a config.scm for my new Guix System. Can anyone please take a look and DM me whether there are any errors in syntax and declarations? The config file can found on this link https://cloud.disroot.org/s/8rzMrDYAxjQDX3Z. Thank you!
<mikadozero>Are there any library drivers similar to those of rumpkernel.org packaged for Guix SD?
<mikadozero>I will answer my own question of time until Guix 1.0. Answer: When it is ready.
<mfzap>is there such a thing as "undo guix pull"? or to say another way, is there a way to realize which commit I was previously on, so that I can "guix pull --commit=X" where X is the commit where my system was previous to the last "guix pull"?
<efraim>do we have a way to add a package for another architecture in a manifest?
<pkill9>what module would Drawpile (https://drawpile.net) go into? It's a collaborative drawing program, you connect to a server and people draw on the same canvas at the same time. I'm thinking it should go into games.scm
<kmicu>I have those too but after them kernel tries and loads free firmware. I wonder whether your card is not supported for real by free firmware or is only not tested and we could make it work trivially.
<lfam>I don't know why you are running in i686 mode
<quiliro>if i run uname by booting with guix usb live and it shows x64, it is not a problem of the live, right?
<quiliro>please give me a pointer to what i should do
<asterope>Can I distribute modules with service definitions similiar to channels?
<kmicu>quiliro: maybe you need to switch something in BIOS? Does it work with different distors?
<lfam>One of the methods for building a Linux kernel with wireguard is to run the wireguard 'create-patch.sh' script which prints a patch on stdout
<lfam>I'm wondering how to make use of this in a Guix package
<lfam>The other option is the 'jury-rig.sh' script which should be run in a kernel source tree and patches it directly
<Misha_B>I installed node.js, but whenever I try to use npm to install something, I get that node_modules lacks write access. I put in my bashrc that NODE_PATH was .guix-profile/lib/node_modules , which I points to the /gnu/store/gl9pgsskwf09ccsd2js3n8gfz20k5w5n-node-9.11.1/lib/node_modules.
<kmicu>But if other distors give you a correct architecture no need to that. The issue is somewhere else. Maybe with Linux-libre.
<kmicu>Maybe you could test Trisquel or Parabola to narrow it down and exclude Linux-libre kernel.
<bgardner>Well, I feel ridiculuous. I've had a build fail for several days and I kept assuming it was on the CI side and the Guix admins would sort it out. Turns out like this: 'guix system reconfigure' => fail, libreoffice, see log (which I had NOT been properly doing). Log, when I finally look: "no space left on device". Ah. "guix size libreoffice" => 1900MiB. Okay, "df /" => 1GiB. Check my system.scm for cron => "guix gc -F 1G".
<lfam>bgardner: `guix size libreoffice` shows the size of the closure of libreoffice. That is, the size of the built package and its run-time dependencies. But you may actually need more than 2 GB to build libreoffice
<lfam>I don't remember off the top of my head how much space is required but it may be quite a lot. I would try to have ~5 GB free if building libreoffice
<lfam>But ideally you can just download a substitute and avoid building it
<bgardner>lfam: Which is why I think I had made a mental note that just trying again had worked in the past - I caught a substitute. But I hear you, I'm changing all my mcron gc entries to 5
<ng0>hey, been a bit out of the loop and I'm refreshing an old server config. do we now have xfs packaged in a way that I can a drive formated as xfs expected to be picked up in initramfs (for home)?
