<lfam>nckx: I did consider it but decided against it. It's my residential ISP and the uplink is slow. I run the mirror because I have 3 Guix installations on my home network
<lfam>Almost all the traffic from the mirror stays local
<MtotheM>my biggest dislike with guix is that it's not very usable offline. which is the reality for me most of the time, unlike other distros where you can just clone the repo. that's not really possible here. since it pulls directly from source code on git repos.
<wdkrnls>Is there a guix command I'm missing to search all distinct historical versions of a package?
<VigilanceTech>Hi everyone. Due to being burned out in the California wildfires I have very limited internet/electricity. I've tried a couple times to install (and burned up all my tethering data) and it's never been able to complete. The last time I had to leave my laptop running overnight while I slept and when I got up its battery was dead and again all it does is give me a black screen with blinking cursor when I try to boot. The battery was pretty full wh
<PotentialUser-84>so, i've attempted the UEFI boot install again, and have failed to get a boot. I made sure to write out all the commands I used in the exact order I used them in the manual installer, about 25 commands in total. I can list them out all at once or whoever is available can just ask what they need like parted commands, fs commands, etc
<NieDzejkob>PotentialUser-84: you could put them on paste.debian.net, that way you don't spam the channel but we still get to think through all the info
<hendursaga>Question: seeing how much disk writes updating Guix is taking, I'm almost wondering if I should split my partition into two: one encrypted, for my data, and then an unencrypted one for all Guix-related stuff. Anyone done this yet?
<vivasvat>can someone explain the difference between guix pull
<Noclip>I've run "guix upgrade" two times within a few minutes and it made two times the same update (according to the version numbers) but wrote them to different files in the store. I didn't run "guix pull" between the two upgrades:
<str1ngs>hello, this command does seems to build way more then just nomad which is unexpected. guix build nomad-git --with-commit=nomad-git=518ffe5faf6aa95520594d5aeb3aa2f0a4f9c92b . for example one if it's inputs is webkitgtk which I know substitutes exists for but it still wants to rebuild webkitgtk. is my understanding of --with-commit wrong?
<mfg>NieDzejkob: you're right, just checked the info manual :)
<PotentialUser-84>Hello, back with the UEFI install, I was able to get the graphical install with a guided partitioning successfully installed, but I am still unable to boot. I am wondering if there are any known issues with the thinkpad t420 hardware/firmware? I have UEFI only startup enabled, but it still takes me to the intel boot agent after install
<PotentialUser-84>interesting, I have been able to install other gnu/linux systems even a few weeks ago, and they booted, I guess I'll try one of them just to test and make sure it's still possible and come back in a little bit
<nikita`>dustyweb: it's too warm to think about a right time to chat tomorrow and I am a bit jetlagged from 5 hours sleep, so I'll just be on tomorrow and you can contact me? my plan is to do job applications tomorrow morning and gsoc work in the evening
<nikita`>I just had to be in the comfy 37°C outside for a while :|
<guix-vits>+1 Yeah, sometimes one can just dream to move to Yakutia, or smth.
<PotentialUser-84>back with good news on the UEFI install. I relabeled the partition as ms-dos and installed opensuse, then switched back to uefi only, and installed GUIX and got it to boot with a gpt table. Does anyone have any ideas as to why simply deleting the partitions wasn't working the several times I tried to install it without relabeling the table? I would
