<tune>I'm doing a guix system reconfigure and it seems to keep getting stuck downloading glibc-locales. the percentage is frozen in the upper 90s and neither the ETA nor download speed values are changing anymore either
<tune>I canceled it and started it again once already and it seems to be struggling with the same part
<mwette>I'm on attempt number X of building guix from source for Fedora. Each time I run into brick wall after 5-ish hours and give up. Just got through installing gnutls. yay.
<g_bor[m]>the chromium error was a bit more verbose, now I know what is happening. Istm the site uses a proprietary codec.
<str1ngs>I'm just trying to figure out these bootstrap binaires come into play. I would think only when building toolchains
<vagrantc>str1ngs: you need bit-for-bit identical bootstrap binaries in order to get the same hashes that go into /gnu/store/* which has a cascading effect throughout all of the possible substitutes for the core toolchains
<str1ngs>okay this makes sense. so you can build guix from source. but you still need some bootstrap binaries from there?
<vagrantc>i tried symlinking the host binaries, but then only the symlinks ended up in the store and everything failed to build
<vagrantc>guix worked fine, just guix-daemon couldn't usefully build anything
<str1ngs>hmm make install DESTDIR=$PWD/test does not show any binaries as far as I can tell.
<jackhill>Guix actually makes this pretty easy since each store item can depend directly on its own set up libraries insteading of having to deal with installing them all at the same time in one big global name space
<kdtsh>Hi all! I had a question which is likely a matter of simple configuration that I'm just not getting ... I find that my tty1 is constantly being littered with system logging, and I can't find any reason why this would happen. I've looked at the syslog config and I can't see any obvious reason why it would log to tty1. The logging is usually dbus-dae
<kdtsh>mon and ModemManager. Does anyone know why this would be happening?
<OriansJ>kmicu: do you not realize how early it is over here?
<OriansJ>It is barely 5am and I've got work this morning; we need to start talking about boundaries here....
<OriansJ>and being monday it is either going to be an 8 hour day of full cyber warfare or a 14 hour day fighting with another F@cking project manager who wants to shave 20 minutes off their project schedule by turning off basic security features like validation of logins...
*kmicu knew it from the beginning that that Nix service is a trojan horse from Nix folks. Please don’t forget to subscribe to my conspiracy theory. Cheers!
<weld>hi, is guix pull failing for others as well? it fails to build guix-manual.drv here
<arbi>I'm attempting to install from a "foreign" distro. When I run `guix system init /mnt/etc/config.scm /mnt` I see "initilizing operating system under '/mnt'..." and "bootloader successfully installed on '/boot/efi'". However, when I check `/mnt/boot` there is no EFI folder. Additionally, when I reboot, I'm able to find the Guix bootloader, however when attempting to boot the Linux kernel the directory in the /gnu/store matches the foreign
<arbi>I currently have 2 EFI partitions: `/dev/nvme0n1p3` and `/dev/nvme0n1p4`. The "foreign" distro's bootloader is installed on "p3". I'm attempting to mount "p4" to /mnt/boot
<arbi>Is this my problem? Do I need "p4" at all? Should I be mounting "p3" to /mnt/boot before running `guix system init`?
<str1ngs>arbi: you can mount your EFI partition to /mnt/boot/efi
<str1ngs>janneke: thanks janneke I will take a look at guile-gi soon
<mfg>and another thing: how do i replace the which command with the right program path?
<samplet>Has anyone been able to build core-updates lately? The German manual fails, and if I disable building it, I get a pretty cryptic error from “gnu/ci.scm” which seems to be due to something in “package->job”.
<janneke>mfg: if `which' is a build dependency, you can just add the which package; alternatives are `command -v' (POSIX) or `type -p' (most modern shells), or solve it programmatically in the build system (look for examples in other packages)
