IRC channel logs


back to list of logs

<nckx>lispmacs: What did help me get my remote printing set-up working was (log-level 'debug) (access-log-level 'all) and tail -f /var/log/cups/error.log. Then you can at least figure out who's not talking to whom.
<ScaredySquirrel>why doesn't guix include the latest gnome?
<brettgilio>ScaredySquirrel: it takes a lot of effort to get gnome in a consistent and functional state
<brettgilio>It's being worked on
<rekado>nckx: actually, neither of the two Overdrives appears to be reachable
<ScaredySquirrel>I am glad it includes the newest enlightenment
<nckx>rekado: Sergei is definitely up. I've restarted dmitri, but it's refusing SSH connections.
<nckx>The dynamic IP is currently
<ScaredySquirrel>ok that responds to ping
<ScaredySquirrel>and it does accept ssh
<ScaredySquirrel>oh I might want to get a dell laptop
<ScaredySquirrel>they have 10th generation Intel Core processors versus the 9th generations found in MacBook Pros
<nckx>ScaredySquirrel: I didn't say which port… 😉 But thanks for testing.
<ScaredySquirrel>I trid the port 22
<ScaredySquirrel>ok ok I need a laptop PC with the AMD graphics
<ScaredySquirrel>anybody know which brand carries that?
<ScaredySquirrel>what about msi?
<ScaredySquirrel>oh and mmm I want an ARM aarch64 laptop really
<ScaredySquirrel>but they might not carry any of those
<nckx>Service ssh-daemon is not running.
<nckx>Service ssh-daemon has been started.
<nckx>Hope springs eternal.
<nckx>rekado: I can reach them both from berlin. I noticed that the port numbers are swapped in the tunnels (i.e. will take you to sergei instead) but that doesn't matter in practice. I'll swap them on my end.
<ScaredySquirrel>why would a laptop touchpad just desync?
<nckx>Actually, that might mess up known_hosts, let's leave them in this state.
<ScaredySquirrel>the mouse cursor just jumps around the screen and I lose cursor control unless I reset the touchpad with off then on
<lispmacs>nckx: I'm seeing the jobs pop up now, but am now getting error "filter failed" on all jobs. Current config.scm is
<lispmacs>am going to try to set debug log level
<nckx>lispmacs: Did you restart cups? This sometimes happens when I update splix & CUPS gets out of sync (using an older store path). We'll probably need the exact 'debug error from error.log (see above) to get much further.
<nckx>Good plan.
<lispmacs>nckx: i did. I'll reconfigure with the debugging, reboot the whole machine, and try again
<nckx>ScaredySquirrel: It would help if you gave the make & model of your touchpad/laptop.
<nckx>lispmacs: OK, good luck.
<nckx>ScaredySquirrel: For example, psmouse.synaptics_intertouch=1 on the kernel command line used to ‘fix’ some issues.
*nckx disabled their touchpad because touchpads are the Devil's skin flap.
<lispmacs>nckx: I am getting same behavior after reconfig and system reboot. Here are recent errors showing in the log:
<lispmacs>I have to log out, so please send messages to the bot.
<gnutec>nckx: Yeh! Best thing I did was buy a mouse to my notebook.
<ScaredySquirrel>gnutec: where you saying about how to regain trackpad sync?
<ScaredySquirrel>I have tried i8042.reset=1 for the Linux kernel arguments but it won't go away
<gnutec>nckx: But I like the steam controller.
<gnutec>ScaredySquirrel: Me? I only have problem with Wifi FN.
<gnutec>ScaredySquirrel: But this problem happen only with Ubuntu and Trisquel.
<ScaredySquirrel>my only problem is the touchpad
<ScaredySquirrel>I haven't tried the bluetooth
<ScaredySquirrel>ok how would I get to gnu/packages/enlightenment.scm?
<leoprikler>(use-package-modules enlightenment) I would assume
<ScaredySquirrel>no the source code to that
<ScaredySquirrel>I need to read whether efl was compiled with certain options
<leoprikler>guix edit enlightenment perhaps?
<bandali>leoprikler, do you know if simply adding a ;; comment to a package's definition will cause rebuilds?
<bandali>i'm hoping not ?
***catonano_ is now known as catonano
<brettgilio>bandali: what is your question? I think it got buried.
<bandali>brettgilio, i'd asked if adding ;; comments in a package's definition would count as difference and thus cause rebuilds?
<bandali>not commenting anything out, but just adding a few short words here and there
<brettgilio>In my experience, not. bandali
<bandali>cool, ty
<brettgilio>nckx: wdyt?
<brettgilio>In my thoughts Cuirass would check the commit, see the derivation matches, and then basically stop there not rebuilding anything. But maybe I'm wrong, bandali
<bandali>thanks for your thoughts, brettgilio. i'd love to hear from nckx or other folks more familiar with the inner-workings of cuirass and/or guix itself
<raghav-gururajan>Hello Guix!
<jackhill>Greetings raghav-gururajan!
<raghav-gururajan>jackhill o/
<raghav-gururajan>Anyone from maintainers team around?
<brettgilio>raghavgururajan: I am not a maintainer, but I have commit access. What is up?
<raghav-gururajan>brettgilio Oh I see. Thanks. I have sent two new revised patches for gnome-characters and gnome-font-viewer.
<raghav-gururajan>It would be great if you could let me know if there are any issues.
<raghav-gururajan>*while processing them for commit
<brettgilio>raghav-gururajan: I am working through debbugs right now. I'll get to them shortly :)
<raghav-gururajan>brettgilio Thanks :-)
<brettgilio>raghav-gururajan: if I forget, give me a ping on here or at tomorrow
<brettgilio>I am on baby duty tonight, so there's a good chance that will take priority :)
<raghav-gururajan>brettgilio Sure thing.
<raghav-gururajan>Ah I see. ;-)
<brettgilio>raghav-gururajan: thanks for your effort and care!
<raghav-gururajan>Anytime for Freedom :-)
<brettgilio>Hi raghav-gururajan, I have responded to your gmome-characters email with some suggestions.
<ScaredySquirrel>ok well is anybody working on wayland support for guix?
<ScaredySquirrel>what does wayland need exactly nowadays is my first question
<bandali>don't we already have a sway package?
<ScaredySquirrel>I think the latest KDE fully supports it but the latest isn't in guix
<bandali>yeah kde has been problematic
<ScaredySquirrel>the enlightenment is supposed to support wayland
<ScaredySquirrel>I tried enlightenment_start like the enlightenment channel #e here says
<ScaredySquirrel>but it doesn't work
<brettgilio>I don't use GNOME but is GNOME with Wayland compositing done on Guix?
<bandali>but as far as wayland goes, it should be okay (e.g. sway i just mentioned)
<ScaredySquirrel>brettgilio: not that either
<brettgilio>ScaredySquirrel: is there any open tickets on our issue tracker for it?
<ScaredySquirrel>brettgilio: nope
<ScaredySquirrel>I want to write one
<brettgilio>Might be a good place to request it if not
<brettgilio>ScaredySquirrel: please do :)
<ScaredySquirrel>how do you sign up for issues?
<brettgilio>ScaredySquirrel: has our list of mailing lists. The one you want is bug reporting
<ScaredySquirrel>Oh wow Japanese fonts actually work!
<ScaredySquirrel>you just need to install all fonts
<brettgilio>ScaredySquirrel: I think mine are rendering from google-noto
<ScaredySquirrel>I have one problem: I want to change the font antialiasing to make it less blurry
<ScaredySquirrel>the terminal is all blurry
<ScaredySquirrel>Fantaseque Sans Mono 15 is so blurry
<brettgilio>ScaredySquirrel: what desktop environment?
<ScaredySquirrel>Gnome or Xfce
<ScaredySquirrel>Ok so if I use openbox...
<ScaredySquirrel>I will post back
<ScaredySquirrel>can you check my config.scm at
<ScaredySquirrel>it definitely seems perfect
<lispmacs>what command has the terminal command "reset" in it?
<lispmacs>I mean, what package
<ScaredySquirrel>yeah I just checked it is ncurses
<ScaredySquirrel>I did rebalance parentheses because I saw how scheme applies functions
<ScaredySquirrel>for the first time
<ScaredySquirrel>the error is in the lambda at the bottom\
<ScaredySquirrel>ok, next
<ScaredySquirrel>lispmacs: will you look at that?
<ScaredySquirrel>try this one:
<ScaredySquirrel>I'm using a 1.83GHz CPU
<ScaredySquirrel>so that's .183MHz
<ScaredySquirrel>laugh out loud
<raghav-gururajan>brettgilio Thanks!
<brettgilio>raghav-gururajan: i hope my email doesn't come off as harsh. I am always worried criticism I offer sounds mean lol
<raghav-gururajan>brettgilio Oh not at all. They were really good suggestions. I am still learning :-)
<raghav-gururajan>brettgilio What is the shortcut in emacs for auto-indent?
<raghav-gururajan>Folks! I am not able get the `.pre-inst-env guix lint package-name` to work. I keep getting no package found. I tried even after doing `git add` and `git commit`.
<brettgilio>Can you put the whole output in a pastebin for us? raghav-gururajan
<raghav-gururajan>brettgilo Sure, just a sec
<raghav-gururajan>rg@secondary ~/guix [env]$ ./pre-inst-env guix lint gnome-characters
<raghav-gururajan>./pre-inst-env: line 62: exec: guix: cannot execute: Is a directory
<raghav-gururajan>brettgilio That is all the output I am getting.
<raghav-gururajan>If leave the [env] and try again, I get
<raghav-gururajan>rg@secondary ~/guix$ ./pre-inst-env guix lint gnome-characters
<raghav-gururajan>guix lint: error: gnome-characters: unknown package
<g_bor[m]>raghav-gururajan: only the lint is what's not working? What do youu get for ./pre-inst-env guix edit gnome-characters?
<raghav-gururajan>g_bor[m] I face same issue with lint and build.
<g_bor[m]>ok, I assume this is a modified checkout. Could you paste the diff?
<g_bor[m]>thanks, I will have a look.
<brettgilio>raghav-gururajan: just got your email to the help list. I'm AFK now. So if nobody responds by the time I wake up I'll respond.
<brettgilio>Goodnight, Guix.
<raghav-gururajan>brettgilio Thanks so much.
<brettgilio>raghav-gururajan, rekado_ just pushed your gmome-characters package
<raghav-gururajan>brettgilio Oh that's nice. rekado_ Thanks :)
<talope>nckx: thanks for your help yesterday. My laptop is now hibernating. I ended up cloning guix and using channels.scm to direct to my clone rather than the environment approach you pointed me too -- basically because I couldn't get it to work with the nonguix channel I still have to use for my wifi card. loginctl has ample support for hibernation -- too bad the patch is not in, i'm going to refresh it and try to mainline it somehow.
<fetsorn>Hey, folks.
<fetsorn>Could anyone please help me write a system config with several user accounts?
<rekado_>looks like GRUB in the installer switches to graphical mode, so I can’t actually install the new servers remotely via serial console :(
<raghav-gururajan>rekado_ I wanted to ask you something. I saw your review for this item ( May I please know if it is responding to the kill-switch on your x200s??
<prevedmedved>Fresh Guix system hangs several times while running logging service. It is very slow. How do I fix this? Here are the errors Here is my config
<pkill9>how might i go about diagnosing an issue whereby when i wake the computer up from suspend, the laptop wakes up but the screen is blank, and switching virtual terminals does nothing
<pkill9>note: im using the gnome desktop environment
<leoprikler>I'm sure this issue has already been reported w.r.t. GDM.
<leoprikler>I'm not sure how to fix this however, since you deliberately suspended your laptop (rather than inadvertently through GDM).
<valignatev>Hello-hello! Maybe kinda dumb question, but is is there some way for cargo-build-system to figure out needed cargo-inputs automatically without specifying them manually? It looks like that it's possible considering that packages in crates-io.scm doesn't always have cargo-inputs explicitly specified
<raghav-gururajan>leoprikler Thanks so much for your email. After `guix environment --pure guix -- ./bootstrap && ./configure && make`, should I stay in env or leave the env, for doing guix lint?
<leoprikler>I don't think it matters as long as you prepend ./pre-inst-env
<leoprikler>You can't do your git stuff inside the pure environment though, so if you want to reuse it, you have to spawn a second shell to do things in parallel.
<raghav-gururajan>Ah, that is the issue I am facing. When I do `./pre-inst-env guix lint package-name`, I get no package found error.
<leoprikler>(I prefer this approach, because then I don't accidentally use the normal guix, as it's not available in the pure environment.)
<leoprikler>Hmm, from pure env as well?
<raghav-gururajan>Before I do `./pre-inst-env guix lint package-name`, is it enough to that insert the package def in gnome.scm file or should I do `git add` and `git commit` as well?
<raghav-gururajan>Yes, even in pure env.
<raghav-gururajan>Should I be doing `git rebase [...]` stuff like that?
<str1ngs>raghav-gururajan: you don't need to commit. just add it to gnome.scm
<leoprikler>As long as the file is edited, it should work.
<raghav-gururajan>str1ngs Thanks. So no `git add` as well?
<str1ngs>raghav-gururajan: no you don't need to add.
<leoprikler>nope, you can test your packages before `git add`, `git commit` et al.
<raghav-gururajan>Oh wait, inside pure env, I get different error though.
<leoprikler>What do you get?
<str1ngs>raghav-gururajan: though if you plan to have the changes for awhile. it does not hurt to commit to a branch. and rebase the branch from master as needed
<raghav-gururajan>rg@secondary ~/guix [env]$ ./pre-inst-env guix lint gnome-characters ./pre-inst-env: line 62: exec: guix: cannot execute: Is a directory
<str1ngs>raghav-gururajan: are you on foreign distro?
<raghav-gururajan>No, Guix System
<str1ngs>raghav-gururajan: try ./pre-inst-env /full/path/to/guix . does that fix the issue?
<raghav-gururajan>Let me try and get back.
<leoprikler>is your guix environment okay?
<str1ngs>raghav-gururajan: also see with which -a guix if there is an issue with your PATH
<raghav-gururajan>Doing a clean start. Cloned git repo. Doing `guix environment --pure guix --ad-hoc git nano`.
<valignatev>Another question: does guix have WTFPL?
<leoprikler>it should
<leoprikler>see guix/licenses.scm
<valignatev>wtfpl2, just found it, thanks!
<raghav-gururajan>`./bootstrap` finished.
<raghav-gururajan>`./configure --localstatedir=/var` finished.
<str1ngs>it's like a play by play of the GNU three finger salute! :P
<raghav-gururajan>`git checkout -B rg` and `git config` finished.
<raghav-gururajan>Did `nano gnu/packages/gnome.scm` and inserted package def for gnome-font-viewer.
<raghav-gururajan>Gonna do `./pre-inst-env guix lint gnome-font-viewer`. Here we go ....
<raghav-gururajan>Same line62 error
<raghav-gururajan>gonna try full patch.
<raghav-gururajan>str1ngs I tried `./pre-inst-env /home/rg/guix guix lint gnome-font-viewer`. But got same error. :-(
<raghav-gururajan>`which -a guix` gives command not found and that's understandable as I am in pure env.
<leoprikler>how did you spawn pure env?
<raghav-gururajan>spawn means?
<leoprikler>the command
<raghav-gururajan>`guix environment --pure guix --ad-hoc git nano`
<leoprikler>what if you do ./pre-inst-env guix build hello?
<raghav-gururajan>just a sec
<raghav-gururajan>leoprikler Same error "./pre-inst-env: line 62: exec: guix: cannot execute: Is a directory".
<leoprikler>make first
<raghav-gururajan>AH! I did `make` and something is happening.
<valignatev>What "(properties '((hidden? . #t)))" means in crates-io declarations? I couldn't find anything useful in the manual
<raghav-gururajan>Btw, I tried `./pre-inst-env guix build hello` outside env and it works. But outside env, If I do `./pre-inst-env guix build gnome-font-viewer`, I get no pakcage found.
<leoprikler>have make succeed first
<str1ngs>raghav-gururajan: after configure you need to run `make or guix scripts/guix will not exist
<leoprikler>valignatev: hidden means not shown in commands
<valignatev>In commands like what?
<valignatev>Like "guix package -i"?
<raghav-gururajan>Okay. Some process is going on. Lot of file names with".o" extension. Something like CXX etc..
<raghav-gururajan>str1ngs Oh I see. Let me try after `make` finishes it's thing.
<str1ngs>raghav-gururajan: this might take some time, but you only need to do it once
<raghav-gururajan>Ah I see. Thanks so much, both. :-)
<raghav-gururajan>Also, If I leave the env or reboot my system, do I have to repeat any of the bootstrap, configure, make or git config steps??
<leoprikler>if your setup lives in /tmp you have to redo everything
<raghav-gururajan>by setup you mean cloned repo?
<leoprikler>otherwise you have to occasionally redo the bootstrap/configure if important files change, and regular make doesn't hurt
<raghav-gururajan>Oh, cloned in my home directory.
<raghav-gururajan>Okay, so make is finished but with error.
<raghav-gururajan>error: failed to load 'guix/scripts/pack.scm':
<raghav-gururajan>ice-9/eval.scm:293:34: no binding `zip' to hide in module (gnu packages compression)
<leoprikler>`git stash; make`
<leoprikler>you probably have a syntax error somewhere which leads to weird error messages that can't be trusted
<leoprikler>(our specialty)
<raghav-gururajan>But guix lint seems to work.
<raghav-gururajan>Anyway, running `git stash; make` now.
<leoprikler>I wouldn't trust it if make fails.
<raghav-gururajan>So I should run `git stash; make` correct?
<leoprikler>afterwards `git stash apply; make`
<leoprikler>that helps isolate the error
<raghav-gururajan>Cool! 11% LOAD done.
<raghav-gururajan>Woah! I think the issue that I thought was with gnome is not true. The process called "guile" is hitting 200% CPU when I experience desktop stuttering in gnome.
<raghav-gururajan>Oh never mind, it's because of the make process.
<kirisime>raghav-gururajan: Guile is your init, service and package manager, and build system.
<rekado_>raghav-gururajan: I no longer have the x200s.
<raghav-gururajan>kirisime Makes sense.
<raghav-gururajan>rekado_ Ah I see. By any chance do you remember if that wifi chip you bought responded to kill-switch? Or do you use that chip on your current device?
<raghav-gururajan>kirisime I was thinking about Just had stuttering again.
*raghav-gururajan wishes if gnome project releases lts versions.
<rekado_>raghav-gururajan: it doesn’t fit into the new laptop that I have.
<raghav-gururajan>rekado_ Ah I see. Thanks!
<raghav-gururajan>rekado_ I was told that, that chip model does not turn-off when kill-switch is used, on x200 series devices. That's why wanted to ask you.
<rekado_>you could try asking the vendor
<kirisime>raghav-gururajan: Which version of GNOME are you on currently? I might've had your issue and simply thought that the video I was watching was partly corrupt, but after upgrading to 3.32 the video in question seems to play fine.
<raghav-gururajan>kirisime 3.32. But the issue started with 3.30. Things were fine before 3.30 upgrade.
<kirisime>And I might've had my issues even in 3.28. Odd.
<bandali>rekado_, do you if adding some ;; comments here in and there to a package definition will cause a rebuild by cuirass? not commenting anything out, just adding a TODO or something
<bandali>do you *know if
<snape>bandali: no it won't trigger any rebuild
<bandali>okay great, thanks snape!
<snape>np :) Actually you can try to add a comment to any Guix package and you'll see that the inputs don't change and the commented package won't need any rebuild
<snape>it's more a Guix thing than a Cuirass thing
<bandali>:) ha, gotcha!
<snape>However, there'll be an Cuirass evaluation triggered, because there is one every x seconds if a new commit appeared
<snape>but that evaluation won't return any new derivation to build (except for testing)
<bandali>right, but i think that'll be inevitable: i'm adding a new package (emacs-next), but ludo prefers i don't change the definition for emacs for now if possible
<bandali>so i'll just add a TODO comment for the change i'd like to see be done later at a more convenient time
<kirisime>`guix lint' should probably check for commenting style and indentation if it's possible, though.
<snape>yeah, adding a TODO comment is definitely safe ;)
<bandali>great ^^
<mehlon>is there some way to search packages online?
<sneek>mehlon, you have 1 message.
<sneek>mehlon, raghav-gururajan says: : flatpaks require FHS, which is not supported in guix yet. I have seen some conversations regarding a service for that. If you are looking for featured web browsers, you can use icecat and ungoogled-chromium. If substitutes are unavailable and you do not have high CPU power, you can wait for the build farm to finish building those substitues.
<mehlon>is sneek a bot?
<navik>Trying to boot from USB using the 1.0.1 x86_64 iso after dd from pureboot; it fails detecting the EFI and panicks out to recovery - is this expected?
<navik>I'm currently checking the integrity of the stick, probably some of my own errors lurking.
<navik>mehlon: obvioiusly not dd from pureboot, but it's pureboot that fails to detect the EFI of the USB
<mehlon>is pureboot EFI compatible? I've never heard of it before
<navik>ah, it ships with pureos on the librem systems from
<navik>rebranding of something else
<mehlon>it might be that the GRUB bootloader included does not work with pureboot
<navik>could be, should check with other device then
<navik>I'm getting shit from fdisk on the USB; GPT PMBR size mismatch (2694403 != 30277631)
<navik>this- I meant
<navik>lol, how did I even manage misspelling that. :)
<mehlon>I can't find anything regarding grub on duckduckgo.. hmm
<navik>testing on other device now
<mehlon>based on what I've read so far pureboot is coreboot with additions; and the bootloader GRUB that guix uses does not work out of the box with it
<mehlon>you'd need to make a custom image to support it
<navik>mehlon: thanks, then I can stop bashing my head against the wall and start reading :)
<navik>it did work on my other device also, so confirms the integrity of the stick
<mehlon>what OS and computer model do you have?
<mehlon>you'd need to find some generic way to run a custom distro, any distro, then apply that to guix
<navik>mehlon: I'm on an archlinux system for creating bootable media, and have a librem laptop with coreboot as you say, which I intend running guix on
<navik>It seems that archlinux installation ISO works fine, so I suppose using stuff from there would suffice
<mehlon>ah, is that so?
<navik>at least, It found some EFI-entries, testing now
<jackhill> /win 31
<navik>mehlon: I stand corrected - there's obviously more to it.
<valignatev>Can you some how give an entry that gets created during "reconfigure" a custom name? Something like guix system reconfigure --name "experiment with dangerous stuff". And then this "experiment with dangerous stuff" appears in grub
<mehlon>I'd figured that coreboot cannot boot UEFI stuff
<navik>mehlon: anyways, thanks for your guidance, I might post more thoughts here another day
<mehlon>you should probably ask in a librem-specific channel
<navik>I guess I'll have to look into the details of librem boot process.
<navik>mehlon: true
<g_bor[m]>mehlon: I thought that tianocore was a valid coreboot payload...
<navik>please, enjoy a learning process displayed g_bor[m] :)
<navik>have a nice evening
<g_bor[m]>so it could be done indirectly?
<mehlon>running tianocore -> grub uefi might work...
<guixy>hello guix
<g_bor[m]>hello guix!
<guixy>I want to add a wrapper for the clojure package.
<guixy>As I understand it, clojure is a java library and a java executable.
<guixy>Is it better to add the wrapper to the clojure package itself, or to make a new package (clojure-executable maybe?) that wraps clojure?
<immodicus>Hi Guys
<kimotori>welcome immodicus
<guixy>hi immodicus
<guixy>I'm guessing the wrapper belongs in the clojure package itself. Like how plantuml has its own wrapper (and its own problems).
<immodicus>Immodicus:I was trying to install guix on an external hard disk,out of pure curiosity, but suddenly it gives me the error "corrupt input while restoring the archive from # <closed: file 3bd97e0>". I used the graphical installer and automatic partitioning ...can anyone tell me how can i eventually resolve?can it be an installer bug?
<guixy>That sounds deadly. How does your main disk look?
<guixy>I think I encountered something like that once. I tried to make two disks in a virtual machine. One as the system root, and the other as /gnu/store. It didn't install back then. But this was in August.
<immodicus>I'm new to IRC
<g_bor[m]>guixy: there is a bug in the tracker about that. If you add a wrapper feel free to close it.
<g_bor[m]>I would not add a separate package, most distro does have a wrapper in the package, so users will expect it when installing the packages
<g_bor[m]>it's just something like java -jar clojure.jar ... I believe you can peek at the debian package also if needed.
<Immodicus>g_bor[m] are you talking to me ?
<mehlon>is your network connection unstable immodicus?
<Immodicus>mehlon a lot
<g_bor[m]>Immodicus: no, guixy was looking into the clojure thing.
<Immodicus>mehlon and it's the first time i use irc
<Immodicus>g_bor[m] uh, ok
<guixy>Ok. I'll add a wrapper to the package itself.
<guixy>Why doesn't clojure already have a wrapper?
<Immodicus>can anyone please help me ? I don't understand why it gives me that error lol
<g_bor[m]>guixy: because it does not come with on by itself. It is done ad-hoc on all distros.
<mehlon>you can try repeating the install
<mehlon>or, your installation medium itself might be corrupted.. there should be a way to do a hashsum check
<guixy>Immodicus: I'm not sure why it gives you that error.
<g_bor[m]>I was thinking about doing it, but I left is as an open easy bug, so when someone in the community shows up with interest, they have an easy and fast contibution to make :)
<g_bor[m]>Immodicus: I also don't know.
<g_bor[m]>Does it happen on the system install page or earlier.
<Immodicus>mehlon the installer does not give errors
<guixy>You could send a bug report. The mailing lists have often been helpful for me.
<Immodicus>the error gives it when looking in repositories
<guixy>When was the last time we updated the installer?
<g_bor[m]>Also you can rule out the network problem, by installing the bare-bones manually, as the installer media includes the closure of that confgiuration.
<Immodicus>so I try again but if I try to restart the installer, the installer gives an error
<Immodicus>sorry for the connection
<guixy>The error on restart could be a separate bug. I have seen something like that before.
<Immodicus>guixy so ,in your opinion, have to send a bug report ?
<Immodicus>i have*
<g_bor[m]>guixy: yes, actually there was a proposal to do a force reboot on installer restart. I still think that would be the proper way.
<guixy>I think it's a good idea to send a bug report.
<g_bor[m]>The problem is related to that some mounted filesystems cannot be safely unmounted.
<Immodicus>guixy @g_
<Immodicus>i can't use IRC ahahahah. sorry for the stupid errors
<guixy>No problem
<guixy>There's a guix matrix channel. You might find that easier to use.
<valignatev>Hm, I just encountered another weird thing about cargo-build-system. There is already packaged rust-clap-2 in crates-io.scm that I'm using as a #:cargo-inputs for my package. But when I'm trying to build it, cargo-build-system complains that it can't find dependencies of clap-2. AFAIK these dependencies are packaged in guix already.
<valignatev>If I'm starting to add these dependencies explicitly to already existing clap definition it seems to work, but I wonder why clap-2 was packaged without explicitly specifying cargo dependencies in the first place? Is there some flaky cargo-build-system feature that suppose to resolve cargo dependencies automatically as long as they are packaged but
<valignatev>it doesn't work in some cases?
<valignatev>I also see that there's some overhauling work going on to improve cargo-build-system, so maybe it's better to just wait and see
<civodul>rekado_: re mumi, looking at /proc/39559/fd, it seems that it's leaking socket file descriptors
<civodul>so maybe it's the web server module that forgets to close client file desc.
<bandali>civodul, hey, thanks for the feedback on my emacs-next patch. if you prefer to not change the package definition for emacs until next release, i can probably get away without touching it, but there'll be code duplication
<civodul>bandali: it's not that i do not want, it's just that it would trigger a huge number of rebuilds
<civodul>and thus it wouldn't be able to go to master
<civodul>i guess it's ok to have some duplication here in the meantime
<civodul>we just need to add a comment with an arrow pointing to the one thing that's different :-)
<civodul>so that we can more easily merge both in the future
<bandali>understood :) i'll probably add a ;; comment to emacs's definition with what needs to be changed later
<bandali>i'll send a v2 shortly
<g_bor[m]>civodul: I just had a look at mumi, It seems to me that guile (web server) is used without anything fancy happening...
<g_bor[m]>Did anyone observe leaking fds in other guile web projects, or should the handlers be inspected?
<guixy>guix lint says clojure can be upgraded. If I upgrade it, should I include it in the same patch as the wrapper?
<g_bor[m]>guixy: I would keep them separate, and do the upgrade first. Wdyt?
<guixy>I already have the wrapper working.
<g_bor[m]>guixy: nice.
<guixy>I'll see what I can do about upgrading it. If it needs additional inputs, I want to ignore it.
<g_bor[m]>I think they should be kept separate.
<guixy>But I'll add them anyway.
<g_bor[m]>If you have the wrapper working it is fine even without the upgrade.
<guixy>I think I can rebase.
<guixy>Should I put them in one patch series?
<g_bor[m]>guixy: I believe you should, as they are ment to be appied on top of one another. It's easier to review it that way.
<g_bor[m]>I go to have some sleep now. Good night!
<guixy>good night!
