<podiki[m]>though I think in my overall disk usage the biggest stuff wouldn't gain much or anything (already compressed stuff like art for games, music, photos)
<Ribby>I donated to guix's development. I did attempt os installation from the latest release, but something is bugged? Still, the stable release is at least working to some degree. I think maybe a improper usb reformat in volume or partition table/space from exFat/exa4, might have contributed to the glitch in my beta download. I might try the test release again, see if something works. Maybe the next number will at least have constant
<cedb>also i get the ".../socket: no such file or director" when i run herd as user, i take it from a little googling i need to start herd in "userland" (sorry for bad terminology ;) ) but not sure how
<cedb>but i mean if in sudo -i mode "avahi" "could not be found" im not sure thats really the root of the issue here
<AwesomeAdam54321>cedb: You do `shepherd --socket=socket` and then `herd status --socket=socket`
<Ribby>Personally, zero configuration entails no configuration, but by what extent, I wouldn't know.
<podiki[m]>generally you'll want to edit your config file and do a reconfigure to change any system stuff, like those services, users, kernel stuff, and so on. regular guix install stuff will be run as a regular user for installing packages
<cedb>podiki[m]: you mean adding a sexp with (service <avahi-service-type>?) as an argument to the list proc in services def in /etc/config.scm then sudo guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm?
<balbi>hi folks, what's the proper way to have `cargo' and `rustfmt' installed in guix? I noticed `rustup' is not part of guix and install rust:rustfmt and rust:cargo installed the binaries but didn't link them to /run/current-system/profile/bin/.
<singpolyma>balbi: normally you find things you install in ~/.guix-profile
<balbi>singpolyma: I added `rust' to my system profile, though. So it would be available to all users
<Kolev>KeePassXC keeps crashing on foreign distro.
<attila_lendvai>are there any geiser users around? is it working for you on a rencentish Guix? for me the repl opens up as expected, but it doesn't respond to pressing ENTER. all i can do is C-c C-c several times and eventually it quits with some errors in *geiser messages*.
<attila_lendvai>err, wait, it works when starting with emacs -q. i guess i'll need to take a deep look into my rather innocent-looking init.el
<phf-1>bricewge, je ne sais pas s'il est possible de traduire automatiquement du français à l'anglais comme c'est le cas de l'anglais au français dans la doc Guix ... enfin, nous verrons. N'hésite pas si tu vois des bêtises à me les faire remonter.
<phf-1>bricewge, peut-ête qu'un jour ça finira dans le Cookbook ou ailleurs.
<gnoo>nckx: also, i think the pspp package is broken in that no icons show up, i tried to have it built using glib-or-gtk-build-system while adding adwaita and hicolor as inputs but that didn't gave positive results. anyway, it still should probably be built with glib-or-gtk-build-system instead of the current gnu-build-system
<rekado_>apteryx: please let me know when you want to reboot with me watching the serial console. I won’t be on #guix, so please let me know via email in advance.
<dominicm>Hello all; I sent in my first patch (both for Guix and for a mailing list in general) a few days ago. I think I kind of messed it up because I didn't know that ~git send-email --compose~ sends out multiple emails, so I accidentally created two bugs that were weirdly formatted on the mailing list. I closed out the mistakenly created bug, but I'm not sure if I should also close out the patch and resubmit it so it looks correct in the
<dominicm>mailing list. Would anyone be able to take a look and tell me what I should do? Sorry I'm super new to this stuff. It's bug #54104

<cedb>hey i keep getting the "set env variables by setting guix profile and sourcing it" hint even though I did it like three ways (e.g. added the lines to my bashrc and sourced it, manually, did the guix package --search-paths thingy too)
<podiki[m]>jgart: I like the idea, maybe as a simple first pass, it simple injects a new phase after the one you want to build up to, where it errors out there? or maybe you want it to dump you into the temporary environment (like using -K and then going to the /tmp directory with sourcing the env it set up)
<nckx>I think that's OK. You now know how to send-email to Guix's debbugs in future?
<jgart>How should we open discussion on the nix daemon rewrite? Do people fully understand what the daemon does to reimplement it? Do we have a spec of some sort?
<nckx>I don't think we do, and it would be decades out of date compared to Nix. You're aware of the previous rewrite attempt by reepca? Else I'd start there, see if they wrote a dirty-room spec of some kind.
<nckx>The ‘good’ news is the daemon's been practically stagnant since then.
<dominicm>For a patch with one commit yes, I think I'd either use ~--annotate~ or just send the patch manually. Do you know how you would send a patch with multiple commits though? It looks like you have to send the first one, wait for an acknowledgement, and then somehow send the rest to <patch-number>@debbugs.gnu.org right?
<singpolyma>SeerLite[m]: does kakoune actually fail to run without sed?
<roptat>SeerLite[m], I think there are two things we consider: do we want to tie the tool to a specific version of these programs, or do we prefer to let it find anyone that's available in the environment
<ajarara>is there a way to check a package builds on other systems? I want to contrib another one and noticed that one I contributed earlier doesn't build on GNU/Hurd.
<ajarara>A command to fan out and build/test on containers would be great.
<ajarara>Although I guess not sufficient? Since there are plenty of cpu architectures.
<paul_j>Evening all! I am hitting a problem with mpd, starting as a home shepherd service. It looks to all intents and purposes like the issue identified at the end of 2020: #44820. In that case, there was an issue with the ownership of /var/run/mpd, and the problem was overcome with a new commit. (full details at https://issues.guix.gnu.org/44820). What I am finding which is different - there doesn't seem to be a /var/run/mpd directory created
<paul_j>anywhere I can identify - ~/.guix-home/profile/ or /run/current-system/. Can anyone point me to where the log file should be written? Thanks!
<SeerLite[m]>singpolyma: Yup, all three dependencies are important. I think the startup script exits on the first error encountered so the following stuff doesn't get loaded. Syntax highlighting, for example, doesn't work
<Michal_Atlas[m]>ajarara: You should be able to use --target to select an architecture and there's a service that is able to do that through qemu locally, there's even a guide to get it offloaded to a Hurd vm in the docs
