<bdju>ryanprior: thanks, I don't remember what to do with this, but you wrote that blog post I can look at later. although whatever package I was testing last time I couldn't figure out how to use it by just running it normally. I had to supply a long path iirc. going to bed soon but will maybe dig into that tomorrow

<joshuaBPMan>hey guix! whoever updated sway to the latest version, thanks!
<efraim>computer store owner is a friend, he was amused when I came in and asked for the oldest graphics card they had. my use case for the 710 is probably why they carried them "I broke the VGA port on my motherboard and need something to show graphics"
<efraim>fun discussion of why I needed such an old card and if it was supported by nouveau :) he pretended to help me look online
<PotentialUser-54>hey ! Anyone knows how to boot into a guix system that has some of its non essential hard drives (non root) removed ? It boots into a guile shell. How would I go about reconfiguring the system without that hd - or how would I boot it skipping that HD ... I tried chroot from an installation USB and it seems to be downloading the whole world again wh
<PotentialUser-54>i had the same problem on another machine ... guix will not boot if some arbitrary hard drive is not found
<leoprikler>I never had that for hard drives, that normally aren't connected to my machine (that being the main drive)
<PotentialUser-54>my chroot reconfigure just stopped with "no space left" this explains why it wanted to download everything again .. chroot does not point to the store in the target, it still uses the store from the usb medium
<PotentialUser-54>so a proper guix friendly chroot guide would be really nice at some point
<PotentialUser-54>civodul: the error is bad magic number in super block while trying to open /dev/sdb1 ... File system check failed ... spawning bourne like repl
<civodul>it doesn't allow us to use #f as the field value
<zimoun>Yes. I do not know where the fix should be applied. The ugly hack is to replace the #<unspecified> by #f after the json->record. Or tweak the functions to deal with #<unspecified> instead of #f. Or on the Guile-JSON side.
<rndd>is it possible to make a package that put file in my home directory? i wanna put my .emacs in channel and be able to install it with emacs (i know about (inherit ...) but don't know how to copy files from package sources to user home directory).
<rekado>rndd: you can’t install packages anywhere other than /gnu/store, but you can use “guix package -p /somewhere/else” to link the profile elsewhere.
<adfeno>Hi there, is anyone working on packaging PeerTube?
<kingcons`>Afternoon folks! I submitted my first package to guix-patches late Saturday. Is there any particular follow-up I should take? Not really sure what the cadence is for those sorts of things being looked at. (Nothing important, just an emacs lib)
<leoprikler>kingcons`: normally it's just waiting for review
<leoprikler>note, that that takes some time (committers need to wait 2 weeks for stuff that hasn't been reviewed as well)
<dustyweb>kingcons`: I'm thrilled to see you here.
<dustyweb>welcome to #guix, I hope you have a good time and stick around.
<kingcons`>dustyweb: thanks so much! I'm just finding my sea legs so I imagine it'll be a bit before I'm much help.
<kingcons`>leoprikler: oof, hadn't tested consult-find. mostly been using consult-buffer and consult-line. maybe it expects more up-to-date selectrum? those packages have been a bit bleeding edge lately :-/
<leoprikler>it's fine, but the the interface seems rather unintuitive to me personally
<leoprikler>to the point where I feel as though find-file and rgrep do a better job
<leoprikler>but that's just my personal take, have fun with consult :)
