<Gooberpatrol66>Is it possible to symlink to a location in an installed package with guix home?
<bjc>well, i whipped together a quick patch to get file-append working with different outputs. then i thought it might be a good idea to add a test for it. then i found the existing failing test for it. then i saw the expected syntax is different than what i coded and harder to support
<zacchae[m]>Alright, C-f fan comes up dry in the guix info manual. Any tips on throtling fan speed? I got a fan powerful enough to handle my ROCm ready graphics card, but it's too loud, so I want to lower the speed ~.~
<littlebobeep>apteryx: Thanks for the devel manual link.... in Warning though it suggests it unpacks the files into /gnu/store/ which is odd for Deb-based distros and might conflict if you have Guix installed on the Deb-based OS?
<littlebobeep>Also the Note: above it says you can only install one in a system, but they just mean the same version of the same package right? Or can you literally not install two different debs of different packages entirely if they are both produced with guix pack?
<PotentialUser-27>Hi. Just wanted to let you know there's a mistake in the dt-services/upower section of the manual: "use-time-for-policy?" should be "use-percentage-for-policy?". Keep up the good work :)
<jpoiret>hmmm, they left before someone told them to look at the devel manual instead of the stable one
<wdkrnls>Dear Guix, my build offloading broke after I changed my router. I don't understand why since I have reserved the same IP address and I have not changed the ssh setup. I have no problem logging into my build machine via ssh.
<wdkrnls>Any advice as to why Guix would tell me "Name or service not known" when ssh clearly knows it?
<wdkrnls>Everything I have google'd so far suggests that maybe I need to modify /etc/hosts. It's just strange to me why that would be since I apparently didn't need to do that before.
<wdkrnls>Do I really need to, or is there something that changed which is making the build-machine logic no look into my personal ssh config file?
<wdkrnls>When I replace the Host name I have in my ssh config with the IP address, it makes a connection but then complains about an unauthorized key.
<littlebobeep>apteryx: That is extremely disappointing and not very useful for distribution..... what subset of files will be shared?
<maximed>FWIW, in the past I suggested generating one deb per store item.
<maximed>That way, by construction, there wouldn't be any overlap.
<littlebobeep>maximed: I am not sure I understand, to deb's generated with guix pack only extract in /gnu/store/ ? And if they do, why don't they use isolated directories per package?
<maximed>littlenoneep: The debs of 'guix pack' only extract to /gnu/store (though maybe there are also some binaries in /usr/bin?)
<maximed>littlebobeep: They do use separate directories per package: hello is in /gnu/store/HASH-hello-VERSION, bash is in /gnu/store/HASH-bash-VERSION. The problem is that a generated deb not only contains the compiled package, but also its dependencies.
<maximed>So because both 'hello' and 'bash' use the 'glibc' package, there's a problem.
<WesterWest[m]>i just tried importing haskell-language-server and oh my, there are so many missing packages from guix!
<jpoiret>netamuffin[m]: currently, you need to manually install both xdg-desktop-portal, xdg-desktop-portal-wlr, pipewire in your main guix profile and `dbus-update-activation-environment WAYLAND_DISPLAY` manually for it to work
<Aurora_v_kosmose>I love those cases where some obscure package I expect to have to package happens to have already been added to Guix months before.
<notzmv>folks, quick question. some package I installed via guix install brought in emacs 27.2 when I was using emacs-next already and now some stuff like describe-mode doesn't work :^) should I just remove emacs-next?
<m4rk>notzmv: maybe you should remove emacs 27.2 instead of. emacs-next works fine
<notzmv>won't that break the dependency tree though since I have something that installed firstname.lastname@example.org?
<Ox151>what package would i need to run a file that needs the linker "interpreter: /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2" i am trying to execute an ELF file but it keeps saying " No such file or directory" even tough it is there
<attila_lendvai>apteryx, s-i-f looks for the target in the directories. but this input is a single file, not a directory.
<attila_lendvai>looks like i have to (find ... (string-suffix? ...) ) my way around this
<attila_lendvai>now, another unusual need: shepherd compilation packages the importer modules and makes them available in the guile that is animating shepherd. is something like that done for the builder? IOW, can i use my own modules in the #:modules argument of a package?
