<Fare>maximed, I want not to erase the rest of the data on disk, so I'm wary for installers.
<jackhill>what's interesting to me is that it seems the configuration is correct enough that grub can find the kernel and initramfs from the store…
<Fare>I'm experimenting some more. jackhill, where in your config do you tell the initrd to include cryptsetup ?
<jackhill>Fare: I don't explicity, as I understand it, it's supposed to figure it out becasue the mount-point for / has a dependency on mapped devices. I do see a bunch of warnings about /dev/sda2 might not be mounted, but it seems to work the two times I've tried it. I'd easily believe we have bug where it only works sometimes due to some factor we haven't taken into account.
<jackhill>Fare: if you have a spare machine/vm you could try it with just luks and no lvm, to see if you could get that part working perhaps?
<Rooks>how do adjust a package in order to use a specific source for building a dependency?
<apteryx>I was pondering about turning the 'target' field of the bootloader-configuration into 'targets', to accept a list of devices to install the bootloader on (/dev/sda, /dev/sdb), but reading the manual I see that for UEFI systems target is a path to a mounted partition such as '/boot/efi'; so it seems it is device agnostic in this case (RAID for example would be taken care at a lower level, so you
<apteryx>wouldn't need to pass multiple targets, IIUC).
<apteryx>so I guess targetS for UEFI would be useful after all. You could have /boot/efi from /dev/sda mounted as the 'main' one, and /boot/efi-backup mounted as a fall-back from /dev/sdb. You'd pass these two mount points as targets to have them in sync.

<bost>I'd like to make a few manual improvements. Can you tell me please where's is the source code and/or how to make a pull request?
<ssouth>Or perhaps "extra-special-file" would be more appropriate.
<rovanion>ssouth: I'm reading that page to be about services as part of an operating system rather than an environment. Using `guix environment --load=test.scm" where test has the following content does not work: https://paste.debian.net/1206917/
<ssouth>rovanion: Ah, I assumed you were working with a system configuration.
<ssouth>What you have certainly will not work. But are you not able to create a symlink directly in the filesystem?
