<FlaminWalrus>I'm used to using startx from a tty, or configuring the shell to automatically run startx upon console login from a particular tty; how to set up the X server to work without a display manager is not obvious/documented. %base-packages with xorg-service-type added didn't seem to make startx or xinit work at all. Am I missing the right command, or is there a configuration change I need to make?
<rndd>Lumine: hi, dont work for me (ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT)
<rndd>Well, long story short - i am currently in Moscow. And site is accessible with vpn. So i came to ask is your site blocked for russians? Cause this problem is not about rusian isp i use (at least right now).
<ams-hash[m]>How long does it usually take to build, it's been in the checks phase for a while
<roptat>ams-hash[m], it depends on the package it's building :)
<jlicht>guix-installed programs that have a gsettings-desktop-schemas entry added to XDG_DATA_DIRS in their binary wrapper seem to have issues running graphical host-distro programs (as those now try to start using guix's glibc, instead of the host's)
<jlicht>no, actually, it's the GIO_EXTRA_MODULES that gives trouble
<gnoo>there was a recent blog post about using guix with tex and latex with profiles but i can't find it anymore
<Haider>I have noticed the new glad package in guix which is quite useful in my case. The only problem I have is that my c++ file cant actually find glad.
<SeerLite[m]>Hi! Currently vim-full tries to add a flag to #:make-flags with substitute-keyword-arguments on ones inherited from vim. But since vim has no make-flags, it doesn't get "modified" and no flag is added.
<phf-1>where "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" is the cuirass server ip
<pkal>What is the easiest way to modify the native-inputs of a package when inheriting?
<phf-1>pkal, there is a modify-inputs helper used in gnu/packages/ssh.scm
<phf-1>pkal, chances are that a similar helper exists for native-inputs
<phf-1>pkal, Well, there is that `(modify-inputs (package-native-inputs guile-ssh)' in `gnu/packages/ssh.scm' so, that's how it should be done I guess.
<phf-1>sneek later tell lfaim looking at the tests in `guix-cuirass/tests/remote.scm' we learn that the `(server "...")' field should be filled witht the ip and the port, not just the ip. I guess an example would help in the documentation like `(server "127.0.0.1:5555")'
<maximed>sneek: later tell apteryx: I sent a v5 of the patch series for reducing the number of false positives of 'check-tests-true' (+ some #:tests? fixes): https://issues.guix.gnu.org/50299 (only difference with the v4 is a rebase)
<ryanprior[m]>I want to include various dotfiles and git repositories as part of my home configuration. I read the Guix home manual and don't see a way to include arbitrary dotfiles, directories, git repos - am I missing something? Do I need to write my own services for those things?
<civodul>ryanprior[m]: hi! currently you can do that by extending home-files-service-type
<civodul>that might change in the future because it's a source of confusion
<ryanprior[m]>It would be handy to document it under home-services too, I read all the nodes there and home-files-service isn't mentioned
<ryanprior[m]>I looked in the repo for mentions of `home-files-service` and don't see much in the way of definition or examples either XX I do see in the tests for home a "simple-service" that extends home-files-service-type.
<ryanprior[m]>It uses "plain-file," I wonder if there's "plain-directory" or similar, or maybe some way to specifically declare a checkout of a git repo like you can in a package origin.
<civodul>yeah some Home things are still missing from the manual, in some cases because things are still in flux
<civodul>regarding Git checkouts, you can use an origin record
