<noobly>I'm surprised exwm isn't a desktop env option on the GUI installer :-)
<buenouanq>so I can't just plug a printer in, I have to add a cups service and reconfigure?

<montxero>hi is it possible to create a list of files I want to install in emacs-guix and have them installed? More to the point is it possible to manage my installed programs this way? Note I am using Guix on a foriegn distro
<roptat>if I give it the sha1 of a source file, can software heritage tell me what origin(s) have the file?
<roptat>because right now a dependency of kotlin I'm trying to build is a zip file downloaded as a raw file from the right commit in a github repository...
<roptat>and the zip file has no reference to a version, and it seems to have been modified compared to any upstream version I could find (it looks like a compiled source archive, instead of the actual sources)
<g_bor[m]>espectalll: :) I was trying to simplify the command line libvirt creates for me... Simplified it too much :)
<degrees380>hello, it seems ci.guix.gnu.org is down, I'm trying to ping it from 3 different nets and get no answer; I was installing Guix and got stuck in the middle of the installation (guix sysyem...) with guix trying to download
<donofrio_>they proessed by request and now on my ds8a host I type guix and it's there now how do I onmy ds8a host I type guix and it's there now how do I enforece/restrict everything I do to /app forever
<donofrio_>like first think I want to install is inxi just because it's like a hello world but diffrent just require everything I do to stay within the app directory to be happy....lookinf for checks to ensure it's only in /app
<_tibbe>Hi, is there a proper way to stop the running display manager / X session on GuixSD? Stopping the Xorg service in shepherd leaves me with an empty prompt without a shell.
<civodul>_tibbe: "sudo herd stop xorg-server", and then switch to, say, VT1 with ctrl-alt-f1
<_tibbe>civodul: Doesn't work for me sadly... When I switch my OS configuration to gdm it hangs in an endless loop on startup. I can switch to any terminal and issue commands but when I want to restart the X server to debug things everything locks up
<donofrio_>a hard symlink, or even a diffrent mount point cause we cannot take up 2gb within gnu directroy and 3gb within /app directory (or is everything using gnu stock (like we should change our /app to be /gnu?)

<donofrio_>eeek it's still going........did m4 now it;s doing gcc5.5.....
<Luke|Skywalker>couldnt put opensmtpd to work too, i dont know what to do anymore
<Luke|Skywalker>tryed with the config (modified) that you provided. tryed without any config (guix default) and with modified default (listen on all). none seem to receive any mails...
<donofrio_>so I now have 2.0gb in /gnu directory and not in /app (should there have been a --prefix that I should have run before guix build hello?
<donofrio_>is this project like homebrew (I used that 15 years ago on osx now it's for linux)
<str1ngs>donofrio_: packages in guix are stored in /gnu .
<str1ngs>donofrio_: the prefix for a package is autogenerated to a location in the store aka /gnu/store/<hash>..hello
<str1ngs>donofrio_: when invoking guix build the finally output will display the prefix for the package in the store.
<str1ngs>donofrio_: once the package is built, you can install it to your profile with guix package -i hello. which would also build the package if it's not built already. so guix is more like stow in this regards then homebrew
<nckx>donofrio_: I haven't been following your (mis)adventures, but: to change the store directory you'll need to (at least!) ./configure Guix with ‘--with-store-dir=/app’. This is a pretty big decision.
<str1ngs>yes, that would require bootstrapping all of guix

<thomassgn>Hi, getting build errors from ghc-8.0.2 and I can't figure out what is causing them. The build stops at "make: *** [compiler/ghc.mk:585: compiler/stage2/doc/html/ghc/ghc.haddock] Killed" and I see there are a few messages about "changed semantics in GCC 4.4" before the build stops. Here's the log (it's a little large for a log file at 8.3M):
<thomassgn>str1ngs: it could be, I had a message from icecat about a stopped script now. But it should be possible to build ghc@8 on 3.8Gi mem and waaaait a minute, my swapfile isn't active...? let's try with it on... >P
<str1ngs>thomassgn: yes, you need a swap other wise it will OOM if it goes even slighly over physical RAM
<thomassgn>indeed, no idea why my swap was inactive. rechecking my system config now...
<str1ngs>thomassgn:of ghc 3.8G might be too low. that thing is massive right?
