<the_tubular>I don't understand that... Why when user A guix puill && guix upgrade gets version B and user B guix pull && guix upgrade gets version C ?
***Xenguy_ is now known as Xenguy
<trevdev[m]>If you use guix home, and you have made an update to your own personal channel and you would like to benefit from that update without updating everything else...how would you pull and reconfigure for it?
<trevdev[m]>Could I potentially put my personal channel in a different file and pull it separately from my primary channels.scm, or will that just cause me to loose packages from one channel or the other?
<podiki[m]>you could pin channels to commits, so you only update one channel's commit maybe?
<boud>In case anyone is interested, we now have a Libera Chat channel #maneage - with the aim of bridging it to our main matrix channel. For the moment the only person on #maneage on liberachat is me, though. :P
<boud>There has been some #maneage chat on #tukaani, related to the role of xz in maneage and a library symbol bug introduced by RHEL into CentOS 7 for xz.
<Kabouik>What are the use-modules required to enable virtualization with libvirt? I already added (gnu packages virtualization) but libvirt-service-type is still considered an unbound variable
<Kabouik>That was simply (use-service-modules virtualization), I just didn't find it in the manual so I did not try it immediately
<lilyp>service modules are for services and package modules for packages :)
<zamfofex>Some more updates: I decided to try to run the QEMU command to start the Hurd VM manually, and it seems to not have proper networking — when I try to connect to it with SSH, the QEMU command complains: ‘Slirp: Failed to send packet, ret: -1’ I’m not fully sure about what that means, but investigating it further, it seems my host does not allow using KVM within the VPS.
<zamfofex>Even if that’s not the cause of the issue, it means the VM would likely be prohibitively slow, so I’m investigating using DigitalOcean instead.
<unmatched-paren>"...going down, going down, Matrix bridge is going down, my fair lady" :P
<strangepr0gram>i cannot ugprade or install packages anymore, seems manifest is in an "unsupported format" http://ix.io/4a6V ; for current profile manifest is http://ix.io/4a6W ; i can't really remember anything significant i've done besides removing a channel which was provenant for 1/2 packages
<ulfvonbelow>to follow-up on my earlier issues with gdm, it turns out that the actual problem was that gdm apparently panics if it doesn't detect hardware acceleration, and it had trouble finding mesa because of some tinkering I did to get mesa use to go through libglvnd. In short, the issue was some changes I made in my local repository that gdm was less than clear about (and the occasional permissions issue when switching between gdm and sddm
<strangepr0gram>hi, i tried running "guix time-machine -C ~/.config/guix/channels.scm --commit=c9fbd40785a99e13a59d8e530830ce85220a9871 -- guix pull" as "bug was fixed in" c9fbd40785a99e13a59d8e530830ce85220a9871. i got a build error which is: http://ix.io/4a84 "unbound variable ~S"
<Kabouik>Awesome examors, I didn't see your message until now about the GRUB options, but tried them and they seem to work: the screen is properly rotated after the GRUB screen (but not before; somehow it was properly rotated out of the box when the machine still had its Windows install)
<Kabouik>Touch coordinates are still wrong though, I'll check with other GPD Pocket 3 owners
<boji2>I am having trouble installing fresh guix, getting this error: /mnt/boot/efi doesnt look like EFI partition
<boji2>I am new so if its something obvious please excuse me
<ulfvonbelow>I mean it worked okay when I was managing my ~/.guix-profile with "guix package -u" and "guix package -i", etc
<unwox>boji2: did you create uefi-boot partition? it should be formatted as vfat and have mount point "/boot/efi"
<ulfvonbelow>it looks like the installer is expecting it to be mounted on /mnt/boot/efi for installing the bootloader, though
<boji2>unwox: oh I see, I did it as ext4 haha I was just going through install :) Using guix atm on my laptop and decided to put it on pc as daily driver, but not really sure what are benefits of making it EFI instead of regular since laptop is on "normal" install?
<boji2>I suppose so, really fresh into computer world and linux :)
<unwox>boji2: well, for uefi setup you'll need at least 2 partitions: etx4-formatted root "/" and vfat-formatted /boot/efi (1-2 GB should be enough)
<boji2>unwox: Thanks a bunch :) Also would you consider EFI an upgrade or different option? Trying to wrap my mind around the concepts
<ulfvonbelow>the advantage of efi is that I have no idea how to tell grub to install to a particular UUID or partition name, but I do know how to tell guix to mount a particular UUID or partition name in a particular place in the filesystem, and I do know how to tell grub-efi to install to a particular place in the filesystem
<boji2>lilyp: not really sure as to what you mean? :)
<unwox>boji2: if i remember correctly graphical installer should give you a config.scm before actual installation. could you share it with us somehow?
<unwox>you may also need to disable "secure boot" in bios settings (f2/del on boot)
<boji2>Quickly checked bios to see if safe boot is off before posting log, only thing that could possibly impact in bios settings is sata mode: ahcii or intel rst premium with intel optane system acceleration, change that maybe, right now ahci is on and safe boot is off
<jpoiret>ahci should be on for linux to work properly iirc
<muradm>i had a question few days ago, what is the effective linux kernel configuration for default kernel packages? as far as i can tell from (gnu packages linux) it seems to be "make defconfig" + %default-extra-linux-options basically for x64 least
<muradm>i'm curious which kernel features would be mandatory to run guix if there are such?
***lukedashjr is now known as luke-jr
<jpoiret>i'm curious how people use emacs on guix. I often want to use modes corresponding to what i'm working on using guix shell, and so would need to launch an instance per project so that the lisp files are available to them
<jpoiret>this is quite the opposite to the common knowledge of "run one system-wide daemon", which is why I was wondering how other people manage
<unmatched-paren>muradm: Hi, did you get my previous message about wlgreet? I didn't see a response ping, apologies if there was one
<unmatched-paren>sneek: later tell muradm: https://issues.guix.gnu.org/57721 <- wlgreet patch sent! Thanks for your work on greetd; since you're the expert on it around here, would you mind doing a cursory review of it to see -if- what I got wrong? :P
