<lispmacs[work]>hi, I needed Keepass for a work environment (https://keepass.info/) but Guix only has KeepassXC, which uses an incompatible file-format. I was wondering if there was any freedom/licensing concerns behind that missing package, or just a lack of interest/resources
<Blackbeard>lispmacs[work]: what format is not compatible? I ask out of curiosity. I never had a problem with keepassXC
<Blackbeard>I don't know anything helpful lispmacs[work]. I used keepass to save my passwords then moved to keepassxc and I've been there for a couple years now. I am not sure what can be donu in your case :/
<nckx>‘KeePassXC currently uses the KeePass 2.x password database format’, Keepass is at 2.44, sounds like it should work.
<nckx>alextee[m]: As hinted at above, we have mono (and at least one package that seems to build something using it), but no mono-build system and who knows what else the average Wind^WMono programme actually needs to build.
<maxdevjs>apteryx : thank you very much. C-l works :) But I am used to alias 'clear' in personal configuration, so now I wonder about the 'clear' command. Sorry for the paste thing. Do you refer to the gist link?
<raghavgururajan>You did not install grub on /dev/sda1 via guix. Neither via parabola. Remember, you partition table is MBR and not GPT. The number in sdaX is partition number. Only GPT require separate boot partition. In your case, parabola installed grub MBR gap of sda and guix over-wrote it.
<nckx>raghavgururajan: You need to put everything on one line after ‘sn*** later tell ***’, or prefix every line with that if you want to send multiple messages.
<raghavgururajan>sneek later tell Blackbeard: So to boot parabola, do these. As soon as you see grub screen, press 'C' to enter command line. Do following commands. 1) ` set root='achi0,msdos2' ` 2) ` linux /boot/vmlinuz-linux-libre ` 3) ` initrd /boot/initramfs-linux-libre.img ` 4) ` boot `.
<sneek>Welcome back Blackbeard, you have 2 messages.

<apteryx>I've found that guix gc -R /gnu/store/awgg5l1yik54mhbdmzdm7dbhbvp0sbj1-system | grep acl returns an acl which contains my correct signing key... perhaps the activation script simply isn't ran?
<apteryx>I tried 'herd restart guix-service', but it doesn't help.
<Guest75659>Noob question, trying to learn guile, but I'm having a hard time deciphering the manual. For instance I'm trying to sort a list, following the documentation (https://www.gnu.org/software/guile/manual/html_node/Sorting.html#Sorting or (help sort!) for example) any use of 'less' results in 'warning: possibly unbound variable `less'. Same for 'less?'. Am I reading the manual correctly? Also, how can I browse available
<Guest75659>procedures/functions and their usage from within emacs? Preferably I'd like to open a helm buffer with all the loaded guile modules/procedures which links to the documentation - seems like that would be built in, but I'm having a hard time figuring it out. Thanks in advance!
<raghavgururajan>sneek later tell Guest75659: You could get more help regarding your question in #guile channel.
*raghavgururajan wonders where do these "Guest[...]" nicks come from.
<raghavgururajan>Like from a particular network or something? Looks like auto-generated nicks.
<b1>Noob question, I'm trying to learn guile and I'm having difficulty deciphering the manual. For instance I am trying to sort a list - according to both the manual and (help sort-list) the command takes two arguments a list and 'less' - however, when I use 'less' or 'less?' I get an unbound variable error if I dont use 'less' it says I'm missing an argument. My goal here isn't to sort a list, but to
<b1>Alos if anyone can put me to a doc describing how to list loaded modules/procedures in an emacs helm buffer that would also be super helpful, I've not been able to find anything, although it seems like it should be relatively simple to achieve. Thanks!
<raghavgururajan>b1: Regarding Guile, there are higher chances you get more help in #guile channel. :-)

<guix-vits>so no need to manage a "default-version symlink", then. cool.
<nckx>guix-vits: What's the use case for update-alternatives? I've never used it. Why not just remove the awk version you don't want? Speed?
<guix-vits>nckx: idk. i'm think that it's allow to have an virtual package as a dependency in package management system instead of something exact. Like "web-browser".
<guix-vits>Maybe i'm wrong, but it is also sets an default symlinks for use by the programs: "I'm want an gawk implementation and will not maintain a list to check throught it!" -- So distro maintainers update the list of "alternatives" that can take over the "default symlink". Like "awk".
<leoprikler>nckx: The usage of update-alternatives is quite overloaded. Sometimes it resolves version conflicts (e.g. Java 7 vs. 8, Python 2 vs. 3), sometimes different implementations of the "same" thing (e.g. GNU Emacs vs. XEmacs), and sometimes it might even do both.
<efraim>I would then stop it now and then so I could restart it and let it print the known failures so I could tackle those
<apteryx>leoprikler: strace emacs 27 when trying to 'generate-autoload-file': openat(AT_FDCWD, "/gnu/store/zpmsyn471y4hpgsbz652h4szyskzc2bm-profile/share/emacs/site-lisp/autoload.elc", O_RDONLY|O_CLOEXEC) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
<kirisime>Hello guix, is it possible to set up a guix channel that's behind ssh authentification?
<apteryx>by the way, Guix System can be used quite easily as a Jenkins slave machine :-)
<apteryx>kirisime: I don't think so. There was a discussion about it in the past, and I think ended in the change not being wanted for inclusion in Guix. Perhaps it can be found as a Guix channel, but I don't know!
<kirisime>apteryx: Thanks, I guess my only option is to then have a second publicly accessible channel for stuff I can distribute.

<Blackbeard>Is it possible to go back one generation with reconfigue too?
<pkill9>where should i start with diagnosing poulseaudio issues?
<guix-vits>Blackbeard: if i got the manual, `guix system reconfigure CONFIG` creates a new generation. Rollback to generation-X and do anything that creates a new generation -- and everything newer than X will be forgotten and replaced by this new-gen.
<bandali>apteryx, so you said you have a patch somewhere; have you been able to find it? :-)
<sirgazil>But there is something common between sway+nutilus and XFCE+Thunar: MP3 open correctly with the default music player, but other files fail to open, even though there are default apps available for them.
<bandali>also, i'm not sure about that pdmp-related error off top of my head; i wonder if leoprikler may know more
