<kmicu>leoprikler: when the main Matrix instance/bridge reconnects from Freenode I always see block of nicks reconnecting at the same time through all IRC channels. Almost all of them have ‘[m]’ postfix so they are Matrix users centralised on a main instance.
<kmicu>(On mainstream irc channels those nicks take out the whole screen x)
<kmicu>There’s a gif in that blog post! That makes me unreasonably happy.
<civodul>kmicu: it's not perfect though, but i ran out of time :-)
<civodul>i've become a fan of animated GIFs (i know, i'm late to the party)
<jonsger1>efraim: you have a powerpc big endian branch somewhere?
<peanutbutterandc>A lesson that I learned today (perhaps someone could explain it to me exactly why this happens): never `sudo guix pull` as a substitute for `sudo su - && guix pull # guix pull as actual root user`. Doesn't exactly work. suceeding `guix pull` from the non-root user throws errors (permissions, etc. -related)
<leoprikler>hmm, did your ~/.config/guix/current change instead of root's guix?
<leoprikler>peanutbutterandc: it did work like that for some time iirc
<efraim>I looked into snap, it's pretty tightly dependent on systemd so I don't see it working
<leoprikler>guess I'll have to avoid recommending that to ppl from now on
<efraim>Gentoo has a bug report somewhere about it not working on openrc
<peanutbutterandc>leoprikler, I see. Perhaps I should try it over and over a few times and see if it'll work and if I didn't something different that time. Thank you. (I also don't see why it should not work)
<jonsger1>divansan`: are there any snaps who aren't available as snaps?
<mjsb>I wanted to ask a tip to solve the missing gio-launch-desktop case for MATE desktop as suggested by Barbato on the bug-guix list"
<mjsb>I've added the module (use-modules (gnu packages glib)) and the package (glib "bin") to system's configuration
<mjsb>But system reconfigure objects "Wrong type to apply: #<package email@example.com gnu/packages/glib.scm:163 7fb2aec31d10>", what am i missing? Thanks
<reepca>mjsb: I would guess that you forgot to quote (glib "bin") and so it's trying to evaluate it (which it does by invoking "apply" with the first object in the list, glib)
<reepca>basically: (glib "bin") → `(,glib "bin") or (list glib "bin")
<bgardner>Good morning guix; I had a guix machine that was switched off for about 5 months. I turned it on and promptly did 'guix pull' but it immediately replies 'Git error: the SSL certificate is invalid'. I searched but found nothing obvious, any advice?
