<rekado>I just idled in Grub and asked iDRAC to print info on the disks, hoping that would make them “ready” <nckx>luke-jr: You're… right, from what I can see in guix.git. I'm extremely surprised. <nckx>luke-jr: No way to ’guix install wgetpaste’? <rekado>I feel like a superstitious pigeon. *rekado restarts the mumi<-->debbugs sync <luke-jr>nckx: still trying to do the `system init` step, so probably too early? idk <nckx>You can install whatever you want to the live environment, short of running out of RAM. <nckx>Which wgetpaste should not do :o) <nckx>It's ‘just’ a Guix System. <nckx>If you've started cow-store you're not even limited by RAM. <nckx>rekado: It's not called superstition if you succeed. <luke-jr>found a pastebin that works with plain wget XD <nckx>That's odd. What does ‘guix hash /gnu/store/i5a5jv9zipfw30xmvmk9d3zlk1m7j7yg-texlive-bin-pdftex-poppler0.76.patch’ say? <nckx>Then we're back to why (well, how) Guix would ‘use it’ if it's filled with nonsense? <luke-jr>I found the correct file and `guix download`'d it <nckx>But the file name hash is based on the content hash. <nckx>I forgot I could ‘guix build /gnu/store/i5a5jv9zipfw30xmvmk9d3zlk1m7j7yg-texlive-bin-pdftex-poppler0.76.patch’. <nckx>luke-jr: Can you ‘guix gc -D /gnu/store/bad-patch’ and download it again? <nckx>I'm too tired to think much so if that magically ‘fixes’ things it's great news for both of us. <luke-jr>would it be terrible to copy the correct file over the bad one in /gnu/store? :x <nckx>My point is just that the content hash is right, and the file name should reflect it, so why are we getting the same file name with differing contents. <luke-jr>also, based on that 2021 log, I expect latest guix has the URI changed, but trying to guix pull opens another can of worms at this point I assume <nckx>The /gnu/store/HASH is not based on the URL. <nckx>To answer your question: manually mucking about in the store is a warranty-voiding business, but the installer's /gnu/store/ is ephemeral, and you're adding objectively correct data, so… <luke-jr>looks like it overwrote the file with the 404 again <nckx>That doesn't make sense. If you ‘guix download’ that githubusercontent URL, Guix won't try to overwrite it. <zamfofex>nckx: Can the store normally even be modified? I thought it were a “read‐only file system”. <nckx>Something is not right. I just don't see what. <nckx>zamfofex: There are trivial ways around that, but indeed, by default it's bind-mounted read-only. <nckx>It's just a foot protector, not a security feature. <luke-jr>nckx: the filename differs when `guix download` is used <nckx>That means it's not the same file. <zamfofex>nckx: I see. I thought it was a custom mount (something akin to FUSE) that read the actual contents from some file and didn’t actually implement writing, but I guess not. <nckx>zamfofex: Oh no, not at all. <luke-jr>bingo: renaming the file locally and guix download-ing that matches it <nckx>You should be able to curl/mv/guix download your way to glorious tedium. <nckx>It's kind of the deal you choose when not using substitutes, until git repos are hosted on IPFS or whatever. <nckx>You could also ‘guix pull’ on the installer first. <nckx>I'd love to stumble through debugging that but (1) I'd already forgot you'd said that before because (2) I really need to go to bed. *nckx mumbles sleepily ‘I thought rekado fixed the stuff, did I misread that too?’ but really can't think anymore. <luke-jr>on another note, it's curious that Guix has texlive, considering it's non-free.. <luke-jr>"The files in this directory are master files maintained personally by Donald E. Knuth. Nobody else is authorized to make any changes whatever to them! ///" <luke-jr>even has a request for people to report infringement <luke-jr>pretty sure the actual license trumps websites *shrug* <luke-jr>FWIW, after manually getting those patch files in, it finished successfully <luke-jr>any easy way to disable substittues by default? <drakonis>surely you realize that it also says that you have to fork and rename itw <drakonis>the license has changed over the years as well <djeis>Plus, changes is different from distribution.

<jpoiret>Christoph[m]: guix home suffers from the same issues <jpoiret>it needs to be stored outside of the store <dirtcastle>I was thinking that there is a way to install gentoo from another linux I installed aside. or through another linux iso totally. I think this is the same with any distro or smtg. can I do that with guix too <rekado>yes, just boot whatever and then run “guix system init /wherever” <rekado>no, you don’t need shepherd to use “guix system init” <rekado>I’ve used this method to install Guix System after booting an existing Ubuntu. <dirtcastle>or throught installer script I guess,. I'll use script. <dirtcastle>rekado: after installing guix on ubuntu in my case, I'll create a partition called say guixfs , where guix os will be there. and mkdir -p /mnt/guix . and mount the partition on guix and run guix system init on a config file there? <WesterWest[m]>dirtcastle: don’t forget to mount boot partition if you use efi <WesterWest[m]>and you won’t have a config file there so you probably need to write one yourself <dirtcastle>u asking me to do this - mkdir -p /mnt/guix/boot . right? <WesterWest[m]>guix needs to put the kernel (and bootloader, if you choose so) <WesterWest[m]>don’t forget to change all mentions of /mnt with /mnt/guix as you have mounted the root partition there <dirtcastle>i think I'll have to specify where the boot partition goes <WesterWest[m]>if your other installation is linux, you can install guix without a bootloader and add it to the other linuxes bootloader manualky <WesterWest[m]>but if it’s windows, keep in mind that windows doesn’t recognize linux installations <dirtcastle>I have to mount the boot partition onto another ssd. <WesterWest[m]>usually you can get away with always booting grub (or whatever else) that has menu for all the systems currently present <dirtcastle>one has windows. another has ubuntu. I'm trying to install guix alongside ubuntu <WesterWest[m]>dirtcastle: it is usually done that you have efi on each disk that contains a valid installation as it allows you to boot even if the other disk isn’t present <WesterWest[m]>guix will simply create another efi entry (the one that you select from bios) <WesterWest[m]>you can then manually write into bootloader-configuration of the guix config file the other systems <WesterWest[m]>and then your guix bootloader will act as a master that simply calls others <dirtcastle>WesterWest[m]: yes. understood. grub config is awesome <dirtcastle>so I only have to care abt boot partition and guix system init will gr everything else right? <ulfvonbelow>I think our exim service as-is doesn't quite work... from what I've read in the manual, exim needs to be setuid root in order to do local delivery to various users. We also aren't using -q<time> or a cron job to process the queue, so if anything temporarily fails to be delivered it's just stuck forever <WesterWest[m]>dirtcastle: don’t forget about the bootloader config in guix, but other that that, the whole process shoud be automatic <apteryx>Christoph[m]: I usually keep the secrets in /secrets (or anywhere of your choosing) and have the service read them from a file <apteryx>we're getting this on berlin after reconfigure: nginx: [emerg] could not build server_names_hash, you should increase server_names_hash_bucket_size: 64 <apteryx>I want to raise server_names_hash_bucket_size to 128 say, but how do I do this with our nginx config? <apteryx>ah, we have a config option for it :-) <apteryx>‘server-names-hash-bucket-size’ (default: ‘#f’) <dirtcastle>are there texinfo available for guix manual and cookbook <apteryx>see under doc/ in the git checkout of guix <apteryx>rekado: good afternoon! and thanks again for yesterday. Is it expected that at this time I can't access berlin or node 129 iDRAC (times out) <WesterWest[m]>I am trying to package haskell-language-server and I have encountered a weird error that I don’t know how to solve <WesterWest[m]>“Too many heap sections: Increase MAXHINCR or MAX_HEAP_SECTS” <WesterWest[m]>it is certainly possible that some of those packages depends on another that depends on it *attila_lendvai goes with xdisorg.scm <WesterWest[m]>has someone managed to install ghcup? I need to develop some cabal projects, but the guix cabal doesn’t want to cooperate <jpoiret>i wouldn't bet on ghcup or rustup working ootb on guix <wdkrnls>I was failing to debug a package and looking at the failure output I saw: file ‘cleanup’ has the wrong MD5 checksum <wdkrnls>I have no idea where that message is coming from. How do I find out? <WesterWest[m]>jpoiret: it doesn’t, but I really don’t know how to fix it, i need haskell :D <jpoiret>we've got some flavor of haskell 8 packaged <jpoiret>ghc 9 is not packaged yet though, as it requires quite a lot of work <jpoiret>basically, ghcup will download prebuilt binaries that expect a lot of things to work a specific way, which isn't the case on guix <WesterWest[m]>jpoiret: i would really love to get haskell-language-server working, but that has some circular deps and that doesn’t work well with guix package <WesterWest[m]>and guix-packaged cabal straight up refuses to work on my project <jpoiret>surely there's an example of a haskell package that originally requires circular deps, that you could take inspiration from? <jpoiret>i faintly remember seeing one, although it could've been rust <bjc>i didn't think cargo allowed circular dependencies <rekado>apteryx: we were missing an IP on eno4 to connect to the maintenance network. <WesterWest[m]>jpoiret: the main problem is that hls requires about 50 unpackaged packages and the file with them has 1370 loc, so I dobiti have the energy to check where is the circular dependency coming from <rekado>I just added the IP manually; and I pushed a commit to the maintenance repo. <jpoiret>yep, that's the issue with languages that have their own package managers <jpoiret>lots of small deps, annoying to package <jpoiret>you could temporarily use containers for that, although i don't know how lsp would work across containers <jfred>I kinda wish it were easier in Guix to interoperate with language package managers though; I haven’t used Nix much yet but the tooling around that seems a bit more fully developed there from what I’ve seen <WesterWest[m]>jpoiret: oh yeah, docker style language server would work, if I bind the ports <jpoiret>jfred: that's because they sometimes just let the tools do all the work <jpoiret>ie for some they just download all the deps as specified and vendor them all in the package <jpoiret>one thing that could be beneficial (although i'm not sure if it would resolve everything) would be to have good guix support for FHS containers <bjc>jpoiret: i use emacs+eglot for language environments in containers for all my dev work <janneke>efraim: do we have substitutes for riscv64 yet? <bjc>WesterWest[m]: eglot supports it out of the box <bjc>if you are editing a remote file, eglot will start the lsp on the remote <bjc>or maybe i'm misunderstanding something. i was saying that emacs+eglot will work transparently over containers (via tramp). so if you need to use a container -- for instance, guix can't build run your haskell language server -- you can run that in a container <bjc>you will need the file to be in the container, too, but that's just a matter of mounting directories <efraim>janneke: right now only I have substitutes. I can share the Tor address but we haven't gotten build machines yet <efraim>k7muufoychzetmq7evsv6gcq4sxq4olxo3uy2zlhek5fkfvl5uscbgyd.onion port 3000 according to my notes <WesterWest[m]>hi! I just noticed that /etc/containers/policy.json is missing from guix, is there a way to patch guix to put a file there? As without this file podman refuses to pull any image

<podiki[m]>not guix related, but just found out (accidentally) that if you press 'e' when using less it will open the file in your editor *attila_lendvai has migrated to home services, and succesfully installed his custom xkb into ~/.config/xkb/ <apteryx>podiki[m]: I should read the 'less' manual one day, I also mostly discovered its features by stumbling around :-) <podiki[m]>yeah, I hadn't realized I was still in less when I switched to a terminal, started typing my next command to suddenly find myself in emacs <podiki[m]>turns out there's a lot less can do, took me a while to confirm the command by flipping through man! <bjc>one thing i didn't know about for the longest time: you can type in command line flags after less has started <bjc>so if you want case insensitivity for searching, just type ‘-i’ <nckx>I find the occasional run-time ‘-S’ particularly handy. <nckx>luis-felipe: Cool swag! 👍 <WesterWest[m]>i kinda want to write some documentation on podman on guix as it is really finicky right now and a great source of frustration:D <luis-felipe>I just came here to share it. So for those who don't know, I published a collection of new t-shirts, hoodies, and mugs, featuring the 10 Years of Guix: <dlowe>luis-felipe: I thought you were on fosstodon :D <dlowe>mastodon supports actually moving accounts now <WesterWest[m]>i’m so tired of cgroups 😭 once again podman refuses to work properly <bjc>this has been my life for the last few days <bjc>podman/crun/docker have actually made me appreciate systemd <WesterWest[m]>bjc: i wish i had a huge system that is uportable, buggy and with mantainers if it meant that podman would start up the container <bjc>it doesn't help with podman. it does, however, actually start containers and is fairly simple to work with <bjc>podman is an abstruse mess. and i'm comparing it to systemd of all things, here <bjc>does guix have lxd? i had that working pretty well before i switched to systemd-nspawn <bjc>good luck. i think i'm going to have to do the same thing <bjc>i'm trying to run my containers on zfs, and podman can't handle it <bjc>from what i can tell, it's a lack of openat2 support in zfs <bjc>but my use case is: i have this directory, please make it a container. so i need almost nothing out of container management. but i can't figure out how to make podman work with it <bjc>i think i have the cgroups stuff working. i'm able to use ‘crun’ to start them, but since crun won't set up networking or anything, it's a wash <bjc>systemd-nspawn also uses cgroups, and i long ago migrated to v2 (and dealt with the hiccups), so i don't expect issues there <kennyballou>Hey #guix, I'm trying to modify the z3 package to include java bindings, but seem to be getting stuck at the configure phase. Here is the Z3 definition: https://pastebin.com/ApagA92c. The configure output of the derivation states that it was unable to find javac in the PATH, but I've added java to the native-inputs. Is there something else I'm missing? <luis-felipe>dirtcastle: I don't know any course about guile, only the manual. Do you have previous programming experience? <djeis>Odd, I've gotten podman to work in the past... <the_tubular>WesterWest[m] sorry just saw your message about podman, the package definition definetly need some work, but in the meantime you can create those file manually <dirtcastle>luis-felipe: yes. I am trying to learn elisp. know little bit of c and python. <djeis>Having the package itself create those files would be difficult, but for a guix system a system service for podman could be created that sets the files up. <WesterWest[m]>the_tubular: I haven’t managed to run podman successfully even after that, sadly cgroups are weird <the_tubular>I'm using podman fine everyday, but there are a few hurdles. Podman just got update to 3.4.4 in guix, but podman 4 is released (or releases soon) so I guess we can hit 2 birds with one stone and upodate the package definition when we upgrade the pacakge. <the_tubular>WesterWest[m] If you check the package definition, there's a comment about a command you have to run for it to work <djeis>Wester West: Are you running elogind? <WesterWest[m]>the_tubular: i did that but it failed when I tried to run that container <djeis>Ah, yea, you probably don't want to run that command if you're also using elogind. <djeis>I'm pretty sure elogind also tries to manage cgroup stuff. <the_tubular>I've been using podman for months now without major issues. <the_tubular>Well since the very first day we got the package definition. <dirtcastle>luis-felipe: I was anyway abt to read cookbook and manual. the book has suggestion for further learning. <the_tubular>Next time I have to travel, I'll bring a copy of the cookbook and r6rs with me. <the_tubular>WesterWest you tried : `sudo mount -t cgroup2 none /sys/fs/cgroup` <luis-felipe>You can also as in #guile IRC channel or mailing list, or #guile in the Fediverse for help when you can't find a particular way to do things. <djeis>Hmm, yea, rn I get "Error: OCI runtime error: cgroups in hybrid mode not supported, drop all controllers from cgroupv2" when I try to use podman... <djeis>And I'd rather not mount over the stuff elogind is already managing. <dirtcastle> i was asked the same question in #guile. idk what to think abt recommendation not overlapping at all. luis-felipe <the_tubular>Umm, haven't played with podman for a while, but IIRC that was the error i was getting when cgroups wasn't mounted <nckx>diI know exactly one thing about cgroupsv2: that it's supposed to be managed by exactly one daemon (which is, de facto, systemd). Is our elogind managing them a discrepancy, or does elogind take the place of systemd here, and should podman be able to talk to our logind? <djeis>Ah, so, I think it's fine that elogind is managing the cgroups (although that does make podman soft-depend on elogind...). However, our elogind is running a "hybrid" cgroups hierarchy. <the_tubular>Not familiar with elogind enough to answer that nckx :/ <nckx>We have the same problem :) <djeis>Which means it runs a v1 cgroup hierarchy at /sys/fs/cgroup and then a v2 at /sys/fs/cgroup/unified *nckx yells at systemd.cloud. <djeis>And podman doesn't support that. <nckx>That does sound a bit… deprecated. <djeis>The comment in the podman package says to mount a v2 hierarchy at /sys/fs/cgroups <the_tubular>Let's take the other path and change all container to be guix container :P <djeis>Which would break a running elogind, I presume. <djeis>But systemd can run in either v1, hybrid, or v2. Maybe elogind can be configured to just use v2? <nckx>(Not an answer, just agreeing.) <djeis>I think elogind can also work with a separate cgroup controller, so maybe it'd make more sense to have a dedicated cgroup controller instead of having elogind provide that? <djeis>And that way podman could still be made to work on systems that don't want to pull in elogind. <nckx>If I'd have to bet I'd say that Guix's current hybrid set-up is an historical accident/left-over, not a necessity. I say this mainly because I'm pretty sure my kernel has all the legacy v1 stuff ripped out. But then I don't run GNOME/docker/podman/… or anything fancy that might actually use cgroups. <djeis>Regardless, I think a guix system service for podman is warranted. <nckx>djeis: What are common providers beyond systemd? <f1refly>how do I remove pulseaudio from my system? I removed the pulseaudio-service-type, which jugding from the documentation only removes the pulseaudio config files, and setting (pulseaudio? #f) in alsa-settings <f1refly>I didn't find anything regarding the removal of pulseaudio entirely <f1refly>Do I have to filter it from base-packages? <djeis>Sorry, not controller, "manager". <djeis>Controllers are the things inside of cgroups that manage particular resources. <nckx>f1refly: So pulseaudio in $PATH? <nckx>Many packages depend on pulseaudio, ripping it out is not supported. <WesterWest[m]>the_tubular: no luck, still the cgroup error (but not the same as before running mount none on the cgroups) <f1refly>nckx: I'm still probing around why my laptop consumes 15W in idle when I'd expect something around 4W-5W, powertop lists pulseaudio as the culprit <f1refly>So removing it to test if things get better or if powertop is lying would be my first attempt to know why <djeis>Ah, adding "systemd.unified_cgroup_hierarchy=1" to the kernel command line should get elogind to use only v2. <djeis>Because, well, that's how you have to select something like that with systemd. <djeis>And they just lifted that logic entirely. <djeis>Elogind was forked out of systemd. <djeis>It's systemd's seat management code lifted out and turned into an independently-maintained project. <djeis>I guess they just haven't gotten around to changing that bit of the codebase? <djeis>I might try this in a min... <djeis>Nope, that did not seem to work. <djeis>Ah, no: guix system itself mounts the v1 cgroup stuff, and the guix system service for docker explicitly depends on that. <djeis>Which forces elogind to run in hybrid mode if it wants cgroup v2 at all. <djeis>And that seems to break podman. <djeis>Which, I think, means the other direction is the solution for now: tell elogind to not mount the v2 hierarchy at /sys/fs/cgroup/unified and stick entirely with v1. <djeis>Which is a bit unfortunate, imo, but the other solution involves forcing an update to the latest docker and rewriting bits of gnu/system/file-systems and gnu/services/docker <djeis>Wester West: Okay, so, I was able to make podman work by going the other direction: adding "elogind.legacy_elogind_cgroup_controller=1 systemd.unified_cgroup_hierarchy=0" to my kernel args so that elogind doesn't mount the v2 hierarchy at all and runs entirely in legacy mode. <djeis>Might only need the first of those two options, I didn't test that. <djeis>This is telling elogind to not mount the v2 hierarchy at all.
***stikonas_ is now known as stikonas
<djeis>And relying on podman supporting legacy cgroups. <djeis>I'd imagine this means that guix systems that don't run elogind would never run in to this issue at all. <djeis>The system mounts the legacy hierarchy, nothing comes around to mount the v2 hierarchy, podman just runs in legacy mode.
***daviid` is now known as daviid
<nckx>All hail Luis Felipe (mostly). <tricon>WesterWest[m]: it is quite good. <kennyballou>I believe I figured out the build step for z3 to include java bindings. I followed java-openmpi as an example. However, how do I tranlsate the old `(assoc-ref inputs "jdk")` to use the new gexpr style? I don't know what to pass `search-input-directory`. For reference, here is my current package definition: https://pastebin.com/uJqdEXFb <mekeor[m]>when i want to use a module from one channel in a module of another channel, do i need to put the path of the former channel to GUIX_LOAD_PATH? <mekeor[m]>Wester West: channels are just guile modules, no? <djeis>Channels are collections of guile modules. <mekeor[m]>yeah, along a channel-declaration, but thats not important here <WesterWest[m]>and can be pulled with guix pull and they can use packages fron other channels <djeis>Well, when made part of a built guix they can refer to other channel's stuff. <WesterWest[m]>when you pull, you make all modules from all the channels available <djeis>Yeah but that doesn't help when developing a channel. <djeis>That's how you consume already-made channels. <mekeor[m]>i put a channel calles guix-emacs in my channels.scm, then pulled, when i start guile, i cant (use-modules (emacs packages melpa-generated)). it doesnt find it <djeis>Well... Did you use guix repl or just guile? <djeis>Because your channels don't show up on the load path of arbitrary guile repls, only the one from guix repl. <djeis>But even past that, secondary channels won't show up there until you use `(gnu packages)` for some reason. <mekeor[m]>but referencing it in a channels package module should work ootb, right? <djeis>Channels should be able to refer to modules from other pulled channels, yes. <mekeor[m]>secondary channels? wont show up where? in guix-repl? <djeis>Yea, for some reason trying to load channels other than the official gnu one in `guix repl` doesn't always work if you don't first `(use-modules (gnu packages))` <WesterWest[m]>djeis: is there actually a way to load channels into guile? I mean sometimes guix fails with a cryptic error and I need to debug it, but guile is missing the channels <mekeor[m]>maybe thats why guix pull doesnt terminate for me <djeis>That's what guix repl is supposed to give you: a guile session where the same load path that guix itself is using is active. <WesterWest[m]>mekeor: i mostly use the default provided by guix or simply guix import them <kennyballou>mekeor[m]: I use it in my home profile, but I pin it to a specific commit, and manually update it. <WesterWest[m]>djeis: i want to do something along the lines of guile -L CHANNELS -L myproject myscmfile <mekeor[m]>kennyballou: does it take long for you to guix pull? <mekeor[m]>kennyballou: pinning is a nice thing but reviewing changes to a 3.6MB file is tedious <djeis>Wester West: You might be able to accomplish that by putting ~/.config/guix/current/share/guile/site/3.0/ on the load path. <djeis>That's how I've got my geiser-guile configured. <WesterWest[m]>djeis: i think I tried that but it didn’t work :/ my geiser simply doesn’t see any modules for example <djeis>That might've been the thing I was mentioning above about needing to first use `(gnu packages)` <kennyballou>mekeor[m]: indeed, I live a little fast and loose on updates to that channel. But I don't update very often... maybe every few weeks. I would probably be better served manually importing the packages that I depend on being updated, but I digress. I just did a `guix pull`, all channels were pulled in ~2 minutes <mekeor[m]>kennyballou: okay hmm maybe it takes so long because i reference that melpa-generated module from my custom channel (in order to "inherit") (because emacs-ement is packaged for guix but not for melpa) <djeis>Oh, also, you can pass a file to run to guix repl these days. <djeis>And add some to the load path for your own projects. <djeis>`guix repl -L myproject -- file.scm` ought to work. <mekeor[m]>i wonder if guix-pull is quicker if i re-order my channels so that first babariviere/guix-emacs is loaded and my personal channel afterwards <kennyballou>mekeor[m]: perhaps, there might be a cycle there, by the sounds of your personal channels referencing the babariviere/guix-emacs <kennyballou>from my on again off again attempts to package dnslookup, the cycle detection of go-protobuf gets me every time... still not sure how to resolve that <Guest88>on guix system, is there a way to authorize a public key without running guix system reconfigure? <Guest88>that fails on my system: "guix archive: warning: replacing symbolic link /etc/guix/acl with a regular file <Guest88>hint: On Guix System, add all `authorized-keys' to the `guix-service-type' <Guest88>service of your `operating-system' instead. guix archive: error: mkstemp: Permission denied" <kennyballou>Guest88: I could be wrong, but I believe that needs to be run as root <kennyballou>Do both, add it to your system definition, but temporarily fudge it so you can run the reconfigure... I'm suspecting a chicken and egg problem? <Guest88>yes, thats the idea. i wanna have the substitute available when running guix system reconfigure <Guest88>i just ran it as root. it still showed that warning, but didn't error <kennyballou>Make sure the file is no longer a soft link and has the right content, and you should be good to go <kennyballou>Guest88: yes, that's "the file". then your reconfigure should work, no? <Guest88>it worked. thank you. so my issue was that i never tried running guix archive --authorize with sudo <WesterWest[m]>djeis: how do you setup geiser? Mine doesn’t seem to load my project into load path even when I try very hard to convince it to do so <kennyballou>How can I specify NFS mounts to be mounted automatically on an unencrypted system? On an encrypted system, specifying the `(dependencies mapped-devices)` works, but on a system that does not use any mapped devices, I'm not sure how to get the mounting of NFS to happen at the right time and not hang the bootup. I've tried copying the root file-system object as the dependency, but that just errors saying nothing provides that "service" <kennyballou>is that error the hint, can I specify the networking service as a dependency? <kitty1>the_tubular: I wouldn't be aware ; internet kinda bad right now, what is emacs-eaf? <the_tubular>Basically you can render python and JS inside of emacs <the_tubular>One of the project of eaf is eaf-browser, a full fledged chronium browser inside of emacs :) <the_tubular>kitty1 if you are interested in emacs you should definitely look it up
