<guixy>hy is a standalone package, but it can also be used as a python library, like how Clojure is a java library that is also a standalone application(if we ever get a launcher). Should it be moved to its own hy.scm and/or renamed to "hy"? I already have a patch to rename it.
<wdkrnls>Is there a prefered location to upload GIF files which demonstrate bugs for inclusion into bug reports and help questions?
<alextee[m]>apteryx: i don't think it's 100% safe. I thought of it before. Better to check this with a lawyer. Actually I'll try emailing the fsf to see if they can help. I hope they dont try to charge me too much
<guixy>There are a lot of things to check off when preparing a patch.
<guixy>I'm going to write a script to do all of them, then I'll call that script when I rebase my changes
***terpri__ is now known as terpri
***lukedashjr is now known as luke-jr
*raghavgururajan is feeling that moment, when the tests pass without manual intervention.
<bdju>anyone know what package has the "at" command?
<bdju>hm it doesn't seem like what I wanted after all. I just wanted something that'd work in my shell without me creating files or configs, so I can set something to happen later on a whim, not necessarily permanent
<efraim>we don't have at yet, I was thinking of re-implementing it for guix using mcron
<cnmne>Hi guix! I'm trying to add a ruby package, but I'm getting a MissingSpecVersionError. `Could not find 'tty-table' (= 0.10.0, >= 0.10.0) - did find: [tty-table-0.11.0] (Gem::MissingSpecVersionError)`. Is it possible ruby can't see the spec for the 0.11.0 version ? Not sure what to do here.
<civodul>cnmne: did you add ruby-tty-table (or whatever it's called) to the 'inputs' of your package?
<civodul>i know nothing about Ruby but hopefully others do
<efraim>it looks like it's the wrong version input, the question is does it actually have to be 0.10.0 or if 0.11.0 is also fine
<cnmne>civodul, efraim: hi! I also know nothing of ruby (oops), but I've hacked away with version substitutions to get it to work before. I'm trying to do it right this time. All the packages are there with recursive import.
<efraim>My brain is a bit fried right now, I'm putting the finishing touches on the mailman patches
<apteryx>hey. I think I've got a hold of the situation. Sorry for the noise that must have ensued.
<apteryx>I had a hard time understanding what was going on, my weechat client was throwing write errors until I figured out it couldn't write to its log files because they were broken symlinks. I must have shot my foot with Stow :-)
<civodul>Stow + Guix, your machine must definitely be a symlink farm
<apteryx>eh! It's been a confusing pain at times (.gnupg versioned files missing or disliking symlinks causing subtle, hard to debug issues), but overall I'm pretty satisfied with the setup. I'm using Stow to manage my dot files and per project "private" files.
<apteryx>On another subject it seems my machine's lost mdns since reconfiguring.
<dadinn>mbakke: actually there is a symlink for `/bin/sh`, but I am not sure how that helps :/
<dadinn>I have some guile scripts which I want platform independent, so I have to use either `#!/usr/bin/guile` or `#!/usr/bin/env guile`... as you can see these are scripts to help with the install/bootstrap a new system
*jonsger works on hunspell-dict-de and wonders why no one (German) did that before :P
<jonsger>because it needs not yet packaged ispell :P
<dadinn>I am getting a no space left on device issue on the ISO environment... is there a way to increase the available space on the overlay fs?
<dadinn>in Arch I had similar problems, i had to add update some kernel args during boot :/
<dadinn>I see I can get to the kernel command line with 'e'... what's the kernel argument to increase overlayfs / space?
<nckx>dadinn: There is no such kernel argument. Perhaps you can mount -o remount,size=foo the backing tmpfs. The ISO (installer, I presume) live environment isn't really meant for storing large datasets in RAM. Why are you running out of space?
<nckx>That should be more than enough, but I've never installed ZFS 😛
<lfam>I agree with nckx that you shouldn't run `guix pull` before starting the cow-store service, or before installing Guix System at all, really
<kmicu>That’s exactly how I killed my latest Guix installation and I was guix pulling a default XFCE config. Nothing more.
<nckx>dadinn: First of all, I think your current VM is probably not worth saving. I'd start a new one. But firster of all: what kind of system are you building? One that boots off of ZFS (…is that supported)?
