<bdju>ryanprior: thank you for writing that blog post! I'll take a proper look in a bit
<ryanprior>bdju: you're welcome, hope it helps! I've struggled with that part of the tool and regularly see others tripping over it, so hopefully by writing it out as such we'll have a resource to share.
<ryanprior>And maybe it'll help us concentrate on solutions to the underlying problems as well and lead to even better tools in the future.
<bdju>ryanprior: I've read your blog post now and followed part of it. I see now why it failed earlier, since it was looking for "testing" and I hadn't cloned the whole repo. interesting. all your examples look like they won't let you just run the package from anywhere (without specifying a full path) in the end, though. is this just for security reasons?
<roptat>ok, I also give up, now I'm getting webm files and it works...
<bonz060>Hi guys! For emacsen users here, what Emacs email clients do use? I'm thinking of moving to mu4e or notmuch; since with GNUs, I have to open a whole separate window(under exwm) to follow my mails. The biggest +1 for GNUs however is that I get to subscribe to things on nntp(hence I can access Mailing Lists very conveniently)
<janneke>i'm using gnus with exwm, and sometimes notmuch on the side; what do you mean by "whole separate window"?
<pinoaffe>bonz060: I use mu4e for mail, in exwm, and I started dedicating a whole exwm workspace/frame to mu4e a couple of days ago
<bonz060>janneke: In exwm, you basically run things in "Emacs". So when you run something in a whole "separate window", I mean that I'd open Emacs(again) in a window, and open GNUs in that instance of Emacs. That way, GNUs won't ever block exwm...
<atom`>react to the FIDO key. Anyone know what might be wrong?
<ryanprior>I've been looking through the uses of SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH in Guix and I read the RFC about it. It's still not clear to me what it actually does, and I haven't found any sophisticated examples of packages manipulating it.
<ryanprior>I do see some packages that set it to this or that value, or that unset it for a single step, but neither of those address my use case, which is setting different timestamps for different files within a single package.
<DynastyMic>Hi guys. What's the best way to blacklist/block websites for productivity in guix?
<DynastyMic>Should I just install Chomper, or is there a better way to do it?
<rekado_>ryanprior: it’s for setting all recorded timestamps to a single fixed value.
<jonsger>roptat: I think the audio issues on the rc3 streams are not at our end...
<rekado_>it’s a more upstream-compatible way to elide timestamps when necessary
<rekado_>(upstreams often do like their timestamps to remain, so setting SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH is a way to opt in to clearing them.)
<rekado_>ryanprior: if you want to just set the mtime of a file use the “mtime” procedure.
<slogman>I'm using i3 via slim on top of %base-services alongside dnsmasq for dns caching/resolution. I've created a simple service to overwite resolv.conf to localhost but it is overwritten with what appears to be the DNS server given by my DHCP server. I am not using network manager. Any tips?
<slogman>Actually, upon looking closer, a new question: how can I know if I'm using network-manager or not? Is it supposed to be listed in herd stauts?
<BlackMug>KVM not added to the packages of guix, is there a roadmap for it?
<mdevos>Is it possible to extract a narinfo from a cuirass build? I would find it useful to download the substitutes of recent cuirass builds.
<slogman>Confirmed no network manager. I'm going to assume this issue is Vagrant overwriting the resolv.conf for fun, as things are apt to do. Here's hoping when I flash this to a disk image it doesn't pull this kind of crap
*apteryx has a patch to make fontconfig honor XDG_DATA_DIRS
<civodul>or it could be that there's some other program listening on that port?
<FragmentedCurve>civodul: I'm not sure what port its trying to grab, but I shut down all the services I have running that are using ports such as 8080, 5000, etc. If it's trying to use 80, that port has been available each time I tried compiling. I'll if it hangs again, if it does, I'll try building with -j1.
<msdfgs>Not a guix question per se, but can anyone help me launch the guix Qemu VM? What command would I need to run it (on ubuntu)? Or what would I need to install. I think I have the QEmu packages installed.
