<ryanprior[m]>unmatched-paren: I packaged wyhash, which is used in a number of languages standard libraries for implementing their hash maps.
<atka>working on a server config including docker, during reconfigure: error: service 'dockerd' requires 'dbus-system', which is not provided by any service, I have the dbus service module but there is no dbus-service-type, do I need to include %desktop-services in my server config or can I use dbus + dockerd on its own?
<jgart[m]>hi, should this be news.scm instead of news.txt?
<jgart[m]>I see many packages just include the docs pre-baked
<kittyblam>yoyoyo hows it all going? anyone know if there is any good example configs anyone has laying around? just kinda feel like seeing if there is any neat ideas im missing similiar to how dissecting emacs configurations can yield a lot of insight
<luchadoritos>Hey Guix! I installed the package "sbcl-rtg-math" via Guix but when I use a system that has depends on "#:rtg-math.vari" SBCL throws a "Simple file error" that rtg-math/vari cannot be created.
<philofosser>Have you verified that your current profile has the package and if so your current environment is such that SBCL can see that path?
<luchadoritos>I thought the source of the error was that the input does not contain varjo in the package definition. However I added it myself and I do not see the folder show up. When I try to build using "guix build sbcl-rtg-math" I just get the store link, I actually wanted to see the compile log if there's a warning like "Did not find Varjo".
<luchadoritos>My SBCL can see the path I can use other functions from the package like the v! Function which creates vectors.
<luchadoritos>There's actually two .asd files (one for rtg-math, another for rtg-math.vari) in the Git repo. Does that cause an issue?
<luchadoritos>Adding "rtg-math.vari.asd" to the "#:asd-files" argument list didn't seem to help. But I think that puts me closer...
<philofosser>Pardon, right after I said something I lost power momentarily and missed out on the conversation.
<philofosser>So if you were talking to just me, I missed everything between my message and this last one you sent.
<luchadoritos>So I can see the rtg-math package from SBCL and can use some functions like v!. However I cannot use all functions from the package. I believed this was due to the repo having 2 asd files but adding the other one into the #asd-files argument does not solve it entirely
<philofosser>So, you have access to only some packages. Have you tried using the '::' accessor as well in case it's just an export issue with asdf?
<luchadoritos>When I go to the gnu/store for this package I cannot find the directory for this function either
<luchadoritos>I believe it's not even "compiled" in (if that's the right terminology)
<philofosser>Oh, perhaps the guix package does not ship the library with all the bells and whistles you're used to. I'm not familiar with that one, unfortunately, so I can't do much more than speculate.
<philofosser>I supposed worst case scenario you can do a good old "find -type f | xargs grep 'function-name'
<phodina[m]>Seems like the best option though is to use `make-linux-libre` and just replace `make-linux-libre-source` with the git repo. This way I should be able to supply also the defconfig specific to the device
<alethkit>Does xmonad require any special GHC setup in order for live reload to work?
<devmsv>Hi so, I'm tryng to install Guix System on an Asus chromebook but graphical installer is looping after selecting mode of partitioning
<devmsv>there is a segfault of libparted.so on dmesg so if I can help debuggin just tell me what you need (take into account I'm just a "power user" and don't really know how to use gdb)
<simendsjo>civodul: How can I get to the grub menu on the server? The problem isn't a non-existing drive I guess, but something wrong with the drive/volume. I get "e2fsck: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sdc".
<jab>simendsjo: depends on the hosting service. My hosting provider provides me a graphical way to view the boot up process. It lets me select various boot options from grub on boot up.
<simendsjo>jab: I'm on Linode. Guess they support something like that, but I haven't found it. I'll do some digging.
<simendsjo>Ok, so I have a shell into the server as it boots, but it doesn't seems like it accepts keyboard input at that stage.
<simendsjo>jab: Sounds quite alarming. I guess the drive wasn't formatted or something. A wrong mount cannot possibly brick the entire server...?
<simendsjo>Isn't it possible to do the rollback via the guile API? Or somehow hack away the fstab entry?
<fnstudio>hi, i don't seem to be able to find qmk (open source keyboard firmware) in guix - before looking into how it might be made into a guix package, i was wondering if folks here simply use some different firmware/tools when it comes to custom keyboards?
<ryanprior[m]>civodul: that sounds awesome but I can't find any info. Running "guix home container -h" just prints generic "guix home" help, and "container" isn't listed as one of the valid actions.
<ryanprior[m]>The Guix home manual online doesn't contain any mention of "container" under "Invoking guix home"
<ryanprior[m]>Running "guix home container" just prints "guix home: error: no configuration specified"
<alethkit>Does xmonad require a custom package in order for xmonad.hs reloading to work as expected?
<alethkit>The mailing list on this wasn't too clear on what is going on.
<unfroq>Hey guix! I would like to list all actively used packages on my current guix installation. 'guix package --list-installed --profile=/run/current-system/profile' and the corresponding command for the user-profiles doesn't seem to yield all packages and their dependencies.
<barra>anyone know what packages I need to get icecat to have video acceleration on intel integrated graphics?
<unfroq>barra: I have xf86-video-intel installed on guix system. I also added xf86-video-intel to the modules in xorg-configuration (not sure though, if this is necessary). Icecat seems to play videos well and hw acceleration is ticked in the settings.
<barra>hmm, perhaps that's why it's not working, I need to add it to xorg
<jgart[m]>nckx: re: python packages in check: not sure. I moved it there because Raghav had suggested it over python-xyz
<Ribby>Sure, I got it installed, but somehow, the system is not reading the commands? I thought maybe a program from a different server will help. Otherwise, guix is on a different level of registry reading.
<nckx>I have no idea what you're talking about. Which servers? What registry?
<Ribby>Rather, maybe guix can use a virtual emulator/packager to install programs catered for different os builds. Maybe like flatpak, maybe. Yes, you may need the emulator active in order to keep program running. At least it's a start!
<sneek>philip, mroh says: I don't think there is a package for that (a 'doc' output for guix might be an idea, though), but you can `guix shell -D guix -- make html` in a guix git repo to generate html doc.
<civodul>philip: i think that's because 'less' lacks access to terminfo data
<fnstudio>i've typed "guix build --load-path=. <package>" in the wrong folder and aborted after a while, after eventually realising the mistake
<fnstudio>i suppose that can't have done any harm?
