<nckx>‘Singularity 3.0 introduces the abilities to create and manage PGP keys and use them to sign and verify containers. This provides a trusted method for Singularity users to share containers. It ensures a bit-for-bit reproduction of the original container as the author intended it.’
<rvgn>Do anyone know best alternative for docker? I would like to deploy multiple apps with one host using containerization. I want things to be modular and simple. Since there docker images are pre-made and easy to deploy, are there any close alternative to that?
<mikadoZero>In regards to rvgn question about a docker alternative. How well would `guix environment --container` work?
<mikadoZero>A guix pull takes a while for me. I looked at the manual section `Invoking guix pull`. Is there a way to take a subset of what `guix pull` fetches. Could I for example exclude packages for graphical user interface programs?
<nckx>roptat: I've read nothing but the backlog here, but what's the advantage of having two independent (I assume that's what you mean by master-master?) name servers? Is it just to avoid managing TSIG keys?
<rekado>ugh… “tex exited with bad status, quitting.”
<nckx>bavier`: I'm not 100% familiar with it either, but it's nice that these ‘personal’ derivations *can* be substituted (e.g. a personal build farm will build some of them). *Forcing* local builds just for this is a big meh then.
<bavier`>nckx: true, I hadn't considered that case
<mikadoZero>I do not use network manager instead I use openvpn on the command line. You can run `openvpn /path/to/openvpn-config-file.ovpn` You should be able to get the ovpn configuration file from your vpn provider.
<rvgn>Cool! I'll try that. But how can I track the status? Whether it is active or ended abruptly? Or even to use kill switch?
<mikadoZero>rvgn: Its status will be obvious from its output to the terminal.
<mikadoZero>rvgn: As for kill switch. I have found that if I am using a wifi network conection if the vpn connection goes down it interferes with the interenet connection. This is not the case with an ethernet connection.
<rvgn>@mikadoZero I got confused with the latter message.
<civodul>mbakke: i wanted to talk about librsvg...
<rvgn>So you mean wifi connection will pause when VPN breaks?
