<jackhill>Hi, today I'm having some problems with my Guix System setup with gdm. I don't get the created, and in /var/log/gdm/greeter.log is see "(EE) xf86OpenConsole: Cannot open virtual console 7 (Permission denied)
<jackhill>I've tried switching back to slim, and slim stars and displays, but starting my actual GNOME session fails, and I get sent back to the slim greeter. I don't know where the error related to that are.
<jackhill>I do still have older system generations that allow me to get GNOME session. What are some things that I can look for between the working and non-working system generations?
<civodul>jackhill: i just tried your config in "guix system vm" and indeed gdm doesn't start
<civodul>fails to activate "org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1"
<ArneBab>Thank GNU for roll-back! My printer didn’t print anymore, after restart gnome didn’t start anymore, but as root (guix system roll-back; guix package --roll-back) and as use (guix package --roll-back) fixed it.
<tune>maybe later I'd be interested in giving it a shot
<tune>if you have any helpful links or info for me I could open them now to look at later
<rekado_>I suggest looking at the contributing section of the manual.
<jackhill>As civodul suggested above, I've determined between which two system generations gdm stopped working for me. How do I get more information about which Guix commit was used to build a generation?
<jackhill>the breakage is roughly around when linux-libre was updated to 5.0
<laalf>hello! could someone export gnunet and gnunet-gtk for me? i am not able to build its dependencies
<pkill9>you might get substitutes for the latest guix pull
<laalf>wasnt there talk about a newer guile interpreter some time ago? guix pull is REALLY slow
<rekado_>we usually have substitutes for “guix pull” derivations. Are you fetching substitutes from ci.guix.info?
<laalf>i installed guix about 2 months ago. created the service and users. i didnt do anything to it
<laalf>i was on guixsd before but there are many packages missing for it to be a day to day system for me. it was more of a pain for the month i used it. if i had those packages id use guixsd now. though i really prefer plasma
<enderby>hello. i have a laptop i'd installed guix on, but i haven't touched it in several months. I recently went to upgrade guix and the substitutes server, and I got a message like "guix is too old to upgrade guix" - wondering how to upgrade (I assume I download the binary again from the site, but the documentation says not to overwrite your existing install)
<enderby>kk, gotcha. i guess i will ask again when i'm back at the laptop. I am recalling that it was during a guix pull as root - there was an error message about guix being too old and something about a srfi, but don't remember the version.
<mikadoZero>I am using Guix SD. I just did a pull and reconfigure. I setting up mu4e and following it's documentation. I have set up an .offlineimaprc. When I run `offlineimap` I get this: "ERROR: No CA certificates and no server fingerprints configured.". I have nss-certs installed. Is this guix related?
<jackhill>civodul: cool. Danny is also looking into via the ticket. I'll let them know.
<mikadoZero>rekado_: I saw you mention packaging silvius yesterday. I would test it on Guix SD if it gets packaged. I also watched a video on voxhub.io/silvius . In the video at 20:35 he says that creating a model is "extremely computationally intensive". He recommended using already built models instead of building one. His would be a easy choice as it was developed to code by voice. Could you elaborate on the comment ab
<mikadoZero>out game data packaging and its relation to a voice model?
<mikadoZero>To clarify the "computationally intensive" part is for training the model not using.
<civodul>jackhill: and there's a second thing, which is that /var/run/dbus is 700 instead of 755
<civodul>it's always been a threat to free software
<civodul>even more so given that it's a de facto monopoly
<rekado_>there are *lots* of new bioinfo applications that require CUDA (or want it via tensorflow)
<rekado_>tensorflow on the CPU is hardly usable for those applications. It’s a very bad situation
<rekado_>tensorflow developers promised to add OpenCl support, but this promise is already pretty old and it hasn’t happened yet.
*rekado_ is annoyed by the loud fan on this Librem laptop
<rekado_>compiling software for days with a loud fan is no fun.
*rekado_ builds the nth rust on staging + an updated blast+ on master
<mikadoZero>`cd /` and them `locate .guix-profile` returns nothing. `ls -lA` I do not see .guix-profile in my root or non root users home directories. As per section 4.1 Features of the manual. Where can I find my users guix profiles that link to their stores?
<rekado_>.guix-profile will only be in home directories. “/” is not a home directory.
<rekado_>All of these are links that point to /var/guix/profiles/…
<mikadoZero>rekado_: I do not see /root/.guix-profile with ls -lA in /root. I also do not see /home/username/.guix-profile with ls -lA in /home/username. There are many numbered profiles in /var/guix/profiles. I would like to be able to use a .guix-profile to refer to the current version of the ca certificate for offlineimap. I want to avoid referring to a specific profile number as that will not be updated I am assuming an
<mikadoZero>rekado_: Thanks I will look into those to flags. I have not run `guix package` with either of those yet. I have been updating my system config file and run `guix system reconfigure config.scm`.
<vagrantc>does guix pull rely on the user's certificates, or does it use it's own certificate store?
<jackhill>I do have a problem with the gnome calander widget from the top bar not displaying the <- -> previous and next month arrows, but clicking where they should be works. Sounds simmilar to the gdm change session type gear not displaying?
