<jgibbons[m]><rekado "Sharlatan: you can use a system "> I wondered why /bin/bash was there...
<apteryx>still pondering if guix records could be make to pass from the host side to the build side (file-systems). Any thoughts?
<apteryx>by using ungexp, e.g. #$some-file-system-record -> then be able to use that from the build side code
<wdkrnls>Hi, I had some problem with my CMOS battery and my clock reset. Now I cannot browse the web since epiphany is convinced every website I visit is an attack. I have %desktop-services in my config. Shouldn't that cause the date/time to automatically synchronize? Is there is any way to force it?
<wdkrnls>Hmm... I read it should be in desktop services, and i see 4 directories in /gnu/store suffixed with ntp, but otherwise neither root nor my account has it on the path.
<atw>wdkrnls: I had this issue and got some help with it. I think there was a tlsdate invocation that ng0 gave me, but I don't remember what it was
<Oreo_>Ugh it keeps switching me between accounts.
<Oreo_>any I'm having a lot of trouble with the graphical install, should I just install using the command line, I'm somewhat of a newbie at installing linux via command line. Although I've used command line in Linux a lot for basics
<TempeVolcano>What config file are you guys talking about. I'm trying to install guix on a blank disk
<sisyphe_>hi guix, i'm trying to package various Rust programs and every time, I hit a "In procedure copy-file: Permission denied" when the build system tries to copy the Cargo.toml file. Is the cargo-build-system broken ?
<rekado_>TempeVolcano: the installer produces a configuration file that is probably stored at /etc/config.scm
<rekado_>daviid: slowly making progress on the texlive side of problems. Got past xkeyval, but now face a problem with texlive-lm throwing an error at the last second…
<rekado_>daviid: the upside is that none of this is due to guile-cv.
<rekado_>it’s just warts in our modular approach to texlive, which is really tricky to get right.
<efraim>sisyphe_: it shouldn't be broken, this is during the install phase?
<garjola>Hi, I am using the guix package manager on Debian buster and I am having a SSL certificate error when using apps like youtube-dl (which are not from guix)
<garjola>if I set the paths for guix as mentioned in the docs I get errors like "ERROR: Unable to download webpage: <urlopen error [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed: unable to get local issuer certificate (_ssl.c:1045)> (caused by URLError(SSLCertVerificationError(1, '[SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed
<garjola>: unable to get local issuer certificate (_ssl.c:1045)'))) "
<garjola>if I unset the paths for guix everything is OK
<sisyphe_>efraim: yes that's the error I reach now. thanks for your help. I'm not trying to package ripgrep specifically, it was a just a quick way to allow anyone to reproduce my issue. thanks for the link, I think it will be very valuable
<rekado_>apteryx: it’s not already lowered. I’m accessing the pam entries via a procedure that extends pam-root-service-type.
<dadinn>I am just trying to use the Guix system install image, and when boot into it the first question it asks is "Choose the language to use for the installation process and for the new installed system."...
<dadinn>I think this is wrong! What if I am a French guy, installing a system for my Finnish girlfriend's mother?
<dadinn>The installation process has to be in French for me to install it, but the instaled systemd has to be in Finnish for my girlfriends mother to use it!
<dadinn>The wrong answer is of course: "Well, the language for IT is English, so why don't you use that instead"...
<dadinn>... because the language for IT is Chinese, you moron!
<dadinn>jokes asside... can we raise a JIRA to fix this?
<bavier>dadinn: could you please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org outlining the issue?
<jgibbons[m]><rekado_ "jgibbons: what do you mean? “/b"> I meant /bin/sh but i guess it's the same mystery. I will double check when i get my new laptop.
<alloy>I'm having trouble getting acpi-call-linux-module to work. I have added it to my system packages, but it doesn't seem to be added to the list of available kernel modules after reboot. Is there something I'm doing wrong?
<TempeVolcano>My graphical installer failed to install, I was told to post the config file and that it would be at /etc/config.scm how do I access that file on the Guix USB that I used to install Guix, I can't seem to mount it.
<nly>directory /etc should be mounted by default, is it not?
<nly>the installer is supposed to write the config file 'config.scm' for you, most users write the config by hand though which is totally doable
<minall>TempeVolcano: the config written by the usb installer is on your device, for example, from where guix was going to be installed...
<minall>If you were going to install on /dev/sda, you should mount it, for example on /mnt, and then search for /mnt/etc/config.scm
<TempeVolcano>I re did my GUIX USB installer, that seemed to have solved the problem, but now the install won't proceed because it says that ethernet is not up, is there a way to install GUIX without an internet connection, or a CAT5 cable pluged into a switch?
<minall>TempeVolcano, No, Guix installation needs internet connection to install
<minall>It seems that your USB is faulty, you can reboot again until it finds your ethernet connection, and then until you can install it
