<lfam>That's not normal. I can guess at what's wrong
<Apo11o[m]>waits for the response while watching ssh-keygen xD
<lfam>It's likely that the virtual machine can not create enough entropy to initialize the kernel's entropy pool. This is a problem in VMs. I would search the web for info on how gnome boxes deals with this issue. Other virtual machine hosting programs have mechanisms to provide random data to VMs, to avoid this problem
<lfam>Search terms may be "entropy" "random" "rng"
<lfam>You *could* try mashing on the keyboard while making sure that the VM is "in focus". That is, making sure it would be the program to receive your key presses
<Apo11o[m]>Started searching about kernel entropy and ended up looking into scihub unrelated articles lol. I switched to using the QEMU image and everything works fine, should have done that from the start
<Apo11o[m]>My bad, but thanks lfam for the quick response
<lfam>The QEMU image has some special sauce to avoid this issue
<Apo11o[m]>Thermodynamics are truly fascinating, more so as related to biology. I guess I won’t have any issues if I test my config in the QEMU image?
<lfam>I think that, in a VM, you can't meaningfully test things like bootloaders, disk partitioning, etc. By default, QEMU does not support ping / ICMP. But most things will work
<johnabs[m]>Hi all, does anyone here use emacs-company-coq per chance? I'm seeing some strange behavior in the package that may warrant a bug report, but I usually like to get a second opinion since I'm pretty new to this stuff.
<lechner>there is no shame in filing a bogus bug report. you would not be the first
<trevdev[m]>If I wanted to package something written in golang that wasn't some lib/extension of the language, what package file should I put it in? golang-xyz? golang-apps? Maybe I should make a contextual file such as notetaking or cli-apps? The context is a cli driven zettlekasten app
<KarlJoad>zoglesby: Awesome sauce! Did you have to remove anything PulseAudio-related from the system level?
<zoglesby>No, and piprewire-pulse works to bridge the gap for things that want pulse
<KarlJoad>Noice. Thanks again! This will be super useful!
<KarlJoad>Is auto-mounting NFS shares in the system config possible? I cannot seem to make it work with CIFS.
<KarlJoad>fiesh: No worries. I will have to tinker over the weekend. I have to get work done tomorrow anyways.
<cobra>Hey, I'm having trouble with Xorg on my Guix System installation. When I try to run Xorg for any purpose, my video output freezes until i SSH into the machine and kill Xorg. My Xorg log says that it couldn't load driver "intel", and I have an i965 GPU
<lechner>fiesh / on the system level i believe we have an issue with network not being up in time 60300
<unmatched-paren>bumble[m]: rekado is part of the conspiracy! You see, Taurus is a STAR sign, the Guix website has PENTAGRAM STARS on it, and the PENTAGRAM is a SATANIC mark!!!! Therefore... [continues for the length of a mid-sized novella]
<rekado>bumble[m]: and a gnu’s head is the logo of the GNU project. Guix aims to fulfill the vision of the GNU project in several ways: a fully free operating system, and an overarching means to give people more power over their software
<Kabouik>Thanks rekado! So I have redone a guix pull and guix package -u, but I still get the same issue in R. Isn't that how I am supposed to update r-guix-install before retrying the installation of the R package that requires jq.h?
<rekado>Kabouik: do you have a definition of r-jqr in ~/.Rguix?
<rekado>that’s something that guix.install doesn’t handle gracefully
<rekado>it keeps adding imported package definitions to that personal package module, which will override whatever packages may have been added to Guix later
<rekado>I guess I’ll need to change it so that it prefers packages from Guix proper
<futurile>I'm trying to create/build a package (virtualenvwrapper). It has a dependency virtualenv-clone, which I've already packaged. At the moment I'm trying to debug the build of virtualenvwrapper: so I do --keep-build and now want to go into that environment. I normally do `guix shell python <package dependencies> --container` and then mess with the build in /tmp/. But, I don't know how to tell guix to
<futurile>install the local dependency (virtualenv-clone). I can't figure out how to tell `guix shell` about this local package (it is built and in my /gnu/store). Anyone know how I should be doing this?
<rekado>futurile: I don’t know what you mean by “local dependency”, but two things: “guix shell -D yourpackage” gives you an environment for hacking on “yourpackage”, and /tmp/guix-build…/ has an environment file with all variables it set during the build.
<jpoiret>if your local package is defined in a file (and it is the value returned by the last statement) you can do `guix shell -f yourfile.scm`
<futurile>rekado: the package I'm working on (virtualenvwrapper) depends on another package (virtualenv-clone). The dependency package (virtualenv-clone) is not in Guix yet, I've got an scm file for it - so I can build it and install it on my machine. That's what I mean that it's "local" - the package is not known by guix yet. So when I try `guix shell python virtualenv-clone` the output is `error:
<PotentialUser-22>Hello! Hope everyone here is having a great Friday. May I ask if someone here can help me to package an application and add it to Guix library? The software is written in golang and I'm not sure how to get it built correctly.
<PotentialUser-22>is there possibly a conversion tool to take an RPM SPEC file and tool it for use by Guix?
<munksgaard>PotentialUser-22: Unless you have some strange dependencies, it might be pretty straightforward to package using the go-build-system? Have you looked at how other go packages are defined in guix(
<dthompson>my morning: laptop had 2 hard restarts. suspected it was an overheating thing. realized thermald wasn't part of the default desktop service set so I added it to my system but it didn't work. realized that our version was tool old for intel alder lake cpus. updated to 2.5.1. thermald works! hope that helps someone else out there.
<civodul>dthompson: interesting, worth sharing on the list as others are likely to stumble on this issue!
<gabber>does cuirass not build for a foreign riscv64 system? i configured a spec to build `guix` for x86_64, aarch64 and riscv64 but only the former two are being built. the riscv64 doesn't show up in the evaluation and when i click on "Add a specification" in cuirass-web i can not select riscv64 as a system..?
<mirai>huh, alists are rendered as '() but empty lists are ()
<podiki[m]1>what does joycond do? gamepad/joystick configuration or some such?
<podiki[m]1>f3n1x: just running guix build should give you exactly the same thing as the binary substitute unless you make a change to the package definition; you could look into "tunable" packages though for some that let you set options
