<donofrio_>what does guix pack do, I mean I installed an ubuntu 19.10 vm did the binary install dance added the user and it started I can do helloworld now I'm wondeirng how do I guix to make the files needed to start guix in the /app directory (the have yet to make the gnu directory but at least someone is assigned to the tkt)
<boogerlad>samplet: the specific issue I'm having is I'm writing a package that depends on linux-nonfree, but having (inputs `(("linux" ,linux-nonfree) complains that the package doesn't exist. so that means having the variable defined isn't enough...? or perhaps I'm misunderstanding how to use inputs
<brendyyn>linux-nonfree would be a symbol, defined in some module. unless that module was imported, it will not be fuond
<samplet>boogerlad: It comes from the “linux-module” build system. But I don’t think it’s relevant. What package does it complain about?
<boogerlad>I'm defining my package right under linux-nonfree
<reepca>hm, it seems that guix package -s is behaving strangely actually: adding multiple search strings causes it to search for packages that match *either* string, not *both* like is documented in the manual
<calher>rekado, also: application will not close without killing from the terminal. "Accounts" menu is empty. Right-clicking on an account from the roster list and selecting "Edit account" brings up no window, or a blank window.
<calher>rekado, is it up to date in guix? do i just pull and update it?
<devilishtype>I also am very skeptical of the idea that hosting providers will ever be intersted in buying used cards.
<devilishtype>Maybe if it could get to the point where it's much more powerful. The idea is cute, but I think probably unlikely.

<bgardner>Good morning Guix, I have guix installed on a foreign distro (aarch64) following the documentation and most everything works. The one thing that so far does not is "guix package -i sbcl" - this hangs at different places (once in 'build' phase, twice in 'check' phase). I let it run overnight and no joy, still hung this morning. I've restarted it again - while it runs, any advice to diagnose?
<roptat>donofrio_, if you export the PATH, it only sets it for your current terminal, not forever, so when you closed your terminal, your PATH was back to normal
<roptat>well, I shouldn't say normal, but rather what it was before :)
<rekado>donofrio_: you can export GUIX_PROFILE to $HOME/.guix-profile and then run “source $GUIX_PROFILE/etc/profile”; you can add these lines to ~/.bash_profile to augment your environment by default.
<cbaines>adamantinum, depending on what you'd like to do, you might be better installing Guix alongside Arch (just as a package manager), and then using guix system container and guix system vm to do system stuff.
<str1ngs>adamantinum: I don't know if the binary tarball has a shell
<bgardner>rekado, efraim: So weirdly, 'guix build sbcl' finished in a reasonable amount of time. Followed that with 'guix package -i sbcl' and boom, done. No idea why that worked, but I'll report back if it is operational.
<rekado>bgardner: it’s possible that the tests only get stuck occasionally :-/
<civodul>jonsger: you mean that you actually got the first error?
<bgardner>Interesting. Okay, well 'M-x slime' started up (albeit slower than on Intel) and I have a running slime session.
