<bricewge>That's what I thought too when reading the commit, I didn't understood the meomnize part
<bricewge>At least one other person reported the same issue on IRC a month or so ago
<apis_and_ipas>does anyone here have a Guix Home configuration with Exwm I can see? I'm having trouble getting things configured similarly to how I do on Arch. I see in the Pkg definition I'll need an .exwm file in $HOME, but I'm wondering if I'll be able to access my other packages from there.
***rekado_ is now known as rekado
<Ashy>how do i search for which package contains the pdflatex command?
<Ashy>hmm actually, i think the real issue is that `guix shell` doesn't seem to pick up changes in the guix.scm file
<Ashy>but `guix environment -m guix.scm` does, is that known behaviour?
<Ox151>would anyone know how I can not have the prompt "Scheme implementation:" in emacs everytime I open a .scm file. over at #emacs they say its related to guile, but I have nothing setup with guile.
<yarl>I am trying to package distcc, guix build --round=2 works. Still testing. I would appreciate if someone could take a look, that the first time I define a package. Just to check if I am not doing something completely stupid. https://paste.debian.net/1238262/
<lilyp>"free" is superfluous, "easy to install" subjective marketing buzz
<attila_lendvai>is there a way to have a guile script that can both be started from the shell, and also loaded into Geiser? IOW, how do i detect in a toplevel form that the scm file is launched as a scipt from the shell?
<attila_lendvai>i could do 'guile -e main -s' in the shebang line, except on guix i must use '#!/usr/bin/env guile', where it cannot have arguments... what am i missing?
*attila_lendvai has found the paragraph beginning with 'For maximum portability' in the guile manual
<yarl>lilyp Yes, the tests fails, I disabled it just temporarily and I will investigate why it failed. As for the synopsis and description, I took what's on the github page but I surely can remove "free" and "easy to install". Thank you for your suggestions!
<ZhuAisi[m]>attila_lendvai: Though not portable, but it's valid to use `#!/usr/bin/env guile -s` for `env` provided by coreutils
<attila_lendvai>ZhuAisi[m], env must get a single binary. /usr/bin/env -S guile -s may work, though
<yarl>In 18.2 Running Guix Before It Is Installed there is a note about ".. source newer than compiled .." and I just got https://paste.debian.net/1238275/ (notice the .cache) and make (as is the documentation) does not help, what should I do?
<jpoiret>yarl: you should always run make when .scm files change in a local checkout
<tom[m]1234>Hello . I would appreciate any help or advice! Please recommend single-board computer so that I can install Guix Trisquel, Parabola , Hyperbola and everything works for me! I know that today there is not a libre single-board computer , as FSF writes. I would like to understand what options are possible to use today. I found these options > freedombox,banana Pi,rock64. Is there a similar information page for free distros that goes into more
<EMax`0Mancer[m]>(if I comment out `lua-ldoc`, then it builds and runs without issue)
<acrow>EMax: Yes, I see the reference to 5.3 also and agree that this is suspicious bc your intention is to use 5.1, right?
<acrow>EMax: well, maybe leaving out lua-ldoc is the right thing to do.
<EMax`0Mancer[m]>yes - and I'm guessing that could be the issue. though it complains about "module 'pl.class' not found", which I'm not sure whether that's actually a lua version issue or something else.
<acrow>EMax: I'm able to reproduce it. It builds wo lua-ldoc as a native-input but fusses if you include it. Do you know a way to check for the availability of the documentation from inside the installed awesome-luajit?
<EMax`0Mancer[m]>(a different packaging question - are there any examples of package builds using `dpkg` to extract+install binaries from a .deb ?)
<EMax`0Mancer[m]>acrow: I have no idea about checking documentation from inside of awesome(-luajit) unfortunately.
<acrow>EMax: I do not know of such an example; though I suspect it could be done.
<acrow>EMax: I think we are on two different tracks now. 1. awesome-luajit builds! (celebrate) -- 2. You want to build it from the source in a .deb pkg? (I don't understand the motivation aside from the hacking glory you may achieve.)
<acrow>EMax: 3. perhaps verify that the docs got into the built packages. I see only the minimal standards in the package I built. And that may be ok.
<acrow>EMax: Alternatively, add a phase to install the missing docs...
<acrow>EMax: maybe you want to discuss the (package (origin (deb-src "whatever"))) notion with others here. I imagine that others have already given it some thought. Maybe such guile has already been written.
<heyarne[m]>Hi! I'm trying to set up guix on an foreign armhf system. `./guix-install.sh` ran fine, but trying to run anything else fails. In the output of the failed derivations I can repeatedly find the line "In procedure getaddrinfo: Servname not supported for ai_socktype"
<heyarne[m]>Can somebody help me figure out why the error is raised?
<heyarne[m]>apteryx: was the nscd advice meant for me? i tried installing nscd but I still get the same error (it's running as described in the manual), but still no dice… I've uploaded the shell logs here http://0x0.st/ockr.txt and the build logs mentioned in the previous file here http://0x0.st/ocki.txt
