<massn00b[m]>Anyone made a pinebook-pro image that works with the AR9271 usb dongle? I altered the default pinebook-pro.scm to include networking services, usb modeswitch (needed or the dongle shows up as USB mass storage), and the ath9k firmware, but when I plug in the dongle it doesn't show up as a network interface
<apteryx>I'm trying to use the mpd-service-type, but it fails with: "exception: bind to '0.0.0.0:6600' failed (continuing anyway, because binding to '[::]:6600' succeeded): Failed to bind socket: Address already in use"; I don't see anything using 6600 with 'ss -ltpn'
<wehlutyk[m]>I'm packaging python-pantalaimon, which requires python-appdirs 1.4.4. So I run `guix refresh --list-dependent python-appdirs`, which says `Building the following 3071 packages would ensure 8627 dependent packages are rebuilt`
<wehlutyk[m]>So instead of upgrading python-appdirs, I create python-appdirs-1.4.4, but then guix lint says `propagated inputs email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org collide`
<excalamus>try to compare it to something they know and do it in no more than two sentances. :) maybe something like, most software is like a home kitchen were things are made using custom tools and sometimes without recipes. Guix standardizes the tools and makes recipes that others can use.
<jgart>to send commit 7c2e7d to ticket 51113, for example
<zimoun>civodul: just “guix build /gnu/store/…-disarchive-collection.drv” takes ages! Several hours. And it is only fetching substitutes from Berlin. My network is the one of Univ, so not slow. :-) It fetches all the .dis.drv which is fine but unexpected by me :-) Also all the /gnu/store/…-zope.component-4.6.2.tar.gz.drv and I miss why. Why not only the result of the derivation? Soemthing like
<zimoun>civodul: ah you are writing everyday what you do? Where does procrastination fit? ;-) About “guix build foo.drv”, ah! I thought it used the only output (result) and not all the dependencies which are not necessary. Are they?
<civodul>zimoun: i was just replying to the "Disarchive update" thread, not writing to my boss(es) if that's what you had in mind :-)
<civodul>so "guix build foo.drv" substitutes foo.drv and its dependencies if you don't already have them locally
<ajarara>Trying to run './bootstrap', running into the error in the manual of undefined macros. I see 'pkg.m4', 'guile.m4' in the store under some profile declarations: when I pass the directories containing these as flags I can run bootstrap successfully... it just feels like the wrong way to do things? I'm running guix system.
<vivien>You should compile guix under the "guix environment guix" commannd
<ajarara>Oh, yup: that worked ootb. Thanks vivien!
<vivien>Don’t forget to pass --localstatedir=/var to the ./configure script though
<ajarara>I'd respond with 'yep, that's in the manual' but so is using 'guix environment guix' :)
