<mirai>is there any service that can track branches/issues/patches and check if it's still conflict-free to merge with the intended branch?
<lechner>rekado / Hi, I used goggles-bot as a template but I am not sure that is being packaged via guix.scm here
<lechner>rekado / also, have you been getting my emails? (i worry primarily about deliverability, since i operate my own mail server
<lechner>rekado / goggles-bot is being loaded via local-file
<lechner>goggles-bot also uses the system guile
<lechner>apteryx / i now install my script as a guile module and link it into /bin. can i still wrap that script?
<lechner>anyone who knows a way to package a simple Guile script, please share!
<bjc>i don't have access to my guix box rn, so i can't test it myself, but for simple scripts i think you should be able to use ‘extra-special-file’ to stick them in /bin
<lechner>bjc / okay, thanks! i'll have a look around.
<bjc>if you mean actually package it, if you have a channel set up you might get away with ‘copy-files-build-system’
<lechner>i don't; i just use plain text files in guix deploy or submit them to guix-patches
<lechner>Hi, should guix shell -f guix.scm rebuild whenever guix.scm has changed?
<bjc>what's -f do? but in general, i think rebuilds are only triggered if the derivation changes
<lechner>well, guix build -f guix.scm rebuilds without --check. does that not mean that the derivation did change?
<bjc>it shouldn't change it, since the test results don't alter the contents of the installed package
<lechner>which test results, please?
<bjc>from the check phase of the package build
<bjc>i mean, they *might*, if they drop files in the output, but in general they shouldn't
<lechner>my package does not have a 'check phase
<bjc>oh, ‘-f’ is for custom packages without a channel
<bjc>it doesn't seem to affect --check at all
<bjc>which i was mistaken about: --check is for testing environment variable clobbers
<bjc>that won't affect the derivation
<apteryx>lechner: yes you can; you should be able to use wrap-program to do so
<apteryx>and then you won't need to propagate inputs (unless your package is also intended to be used as a library)
<lechner>apteryx / thanks! do i have to add all cumulative prerequisites to the GUILE PATHS?
<elb>`guix shell --container --no-cwd` is really a glorious thing
<elb>guix gc: freed 1,532.37897 MiBs <-- this choice of units and precision is also great
<Nathan-web>When using `(inherit ...)` in a `(package ...)` will `#:make-flags` over-write the inherited flags, or append?
<Nathan-web>And, if it is overwrite, how could I append instead?
<Parnikkapore_m>same question but with an (origin) that has patches
<Parnikkapore_m>editing the fetch URL and sha256, in particular
<Nathan-web>Or, really, how do I keep `arguments` exactly the same as the the package I'm inheriting from, except append a make flag?
<mroh>Nathan-web: for an example, take a look at "guix edit emacs-next-pgtk" that modifies the configure-flags of the inherited package (emacs-next). You can do the same with make-flags.
<mroh>or hplip-minimal which deletes a configure-flag and appends another.
<Nathan-web>Hah, just as I thought I was getting close with chatgpt explaining `package-mapping`! I'm trying substitue-keyword-arguments from the emacs example now, but I get `error: make-flags: unbound variable`.
<Nathan-web>What module would that be in? (In general, I have trouble figuring out which modules to include)
<Nathan-web>Oops, sorry, I left off the #:
<unmatched-paren>hello guix :)
<unmatched-paren>i should really hurry up with that second blog post...
<Nathan-web>Running `c++` on any file containing `#include <string>` gives me a lot of errors similar to: `~/include/c++/type_traits:2597:8: error: expected ';' after struct
<Nathan-web>    { } _GLIBCXX17_DEPRECATED_SUGGEST("std::invoke_result");` and `~/.guix-profile/include/c++/bits/allocator.h:94:28: error: expected ';' after using declaration
<Nathan-web>      using is_always_equal`, which means I cannot compile a number of things.
<Nathan-web>Any ideas on what might be wrong? I'd expect that this must be an issue with my install because otherwise I think I'd see other reports about something like this, but I'm not a c++ programmer so I have no idea what is causing this.
<rekado>Nathan-web: are you using the gcc-toolchain package?
<rekado>that’s a pretty recent GCC which defaults to more recent C++ standards
<rekado>you may want to use an older gcc-toolchain or explicitly request an older standard
<Nathan-web>`guix package -I gcc-toolchain` returns nothing
<rekado>what c++ are you using then?
<rekado>everyone, what are your thoughts on using package transformations in package definitions?
<Nathan-web>file $(which c++)  -> ~/.guix-profile/bin/c++: symbolic link to /gnu/store/2ggfdjdzvmjxnh8vzr5bavz8c1fbdyk2-clang-toolchain-15.0.6/bin/c++
<rekado>Nathan-web: oh, clang. No idea then.
<rekado>I have a package here that needs an older biopython, but its inputs may have been built with the latest biopython.
<Nathan-web>Any reason I shouldn't switch? I feel like I installed it for a reason but I can't remember why now.
<rekado>so I’m thinking about using a package transformation
<civodul>Hello Guix!
<paul_j>Good morning!
<lembrun[m]>anyone knows how to pretty print a record with all of itf field in the guix repl ?
<lembrun[m]>with a package record for example
<civodul>lembrun[m]: hi! there's nothing that would do that out of the box, but you could use record-type-fields and record-accessor to iterate over the fields and print their value
<normeo>i want to understand, are guix service declarations supposed to cover the entire configuration language of a given package? what happens if they don't?
<Kabouik> Is anyone using R on Linux with a tiling window manager like Sway/i3/xmonad/etc.?
<Kabouik>Whoops, wrong channel. Apologies.
<grtcdr>Hey y'all, I'm trying to install Eclipse's JDT Language Server, but I can't find the relevant package - Eclipse JDT Core is packaged however.
<grtcdr>I should mention that my Guix experience is very limited, I tried to define my own eclipse-java-jdt-ls module and failed quite badly.
<mrvdb>Can anyone merge ?
<tasty-sandwich>"[PATCH] Update i3-wm to version 4.22"
<lembrun[m]><jpoiret> "lembrun: there's probably a..." <- also happens with 5.15.89, I'm out of ideas
<lembrun[m]>* of ideas, I'll try with another thinkpad this evening
<GChriss>I'm getting the following error on a new Guix install:
<GChriss>guix pull: error: libxml2-parent-pointers.patch: patch not found
<GChriss>Appears when 'guix pull' is run by the user or root, also appears when any packages are attempt to install
<GChriss>Removing '.cache' directory doesn't help.  Any ideas?
<GChriss>the patch itself is in the guix store as well as '.cache/guix/checkouts'
<antipode>GChriss: Sounds like the 'guix pull is not concurrency-safe and should use worktrees' bug.
<antipode>Proposed work-around: delete ~/.cache, switch to the previous generation (guix pull --rollback) and "guix pull"
<GChriss>"guix pull: error: profile '/var/guix/profiles/per-user/gchriss/current-guix' does not exist"
<GChriss>Same error message on roll-back as root
<antipode>GChriss: What does "type -p guix" say?
<antipode>(I have been assuming that the original /run/current-system/profile/bin/guix was non-broken, in which case you could do /run/current-system/profile/bin/guix pull)
<apteryx>probably a lot of bugs to iron out, but: file /gnu/store/dcfxzla705xam9bd42b627fsb77wfmc9-hello-rpm-pack.rpm says: RPM v3.0 bin i386/x86_64
<apteryx>so at least the lead section is okay ^^'
<GChriss>antipode :  as user: /run/current-system/profile/bin/guix
<GChriss>same as for root
<mirai>Any opinions in this? Is it clearer?
<mirai>tldr, I'm changing and=> to return an empty list instead of #f when it fails
<GChriss>what is "worktrees' bug"?
<antipode>A reported bug I can't find the report of.
<antipode>It's on, somewhere.
<surpador>Hey Guix- I'm packaging a Perl script. If I don't make Perl a propagated input, I have to set the INC search path manually. Many of the required modules are transitive dependencies, so it seems like setting the search path manually would be difficlt. I don't want to pollute the user profile, but when Perl is propagated, the path is set right. Is there a standard solution to this?
<sneek>luis-felipe, you have 1 message!
<sneek>luis-felipe, mfiano says: I'll try again. I may have just tried it on a random broken commit.
<luis-felipe>surpador: I had to wrap a script recently myself to avoid propagating software that is not supposed to be propagated.
<surpador>luis-felipe: could you send me an example? The ones I can find look very manual and difficult, I might be misunderstanding the process
<luis-felipe>surpador: I just found this:
<luis-felipe>surpador: See the wrap-program part in that package definition.
<surpador>Thanks, I'll give it a look and see if I can get it working!
<luis-felipe>Good luck :)
<mirai>surpador: If your package requires wrapping itself, see or exiftool
<tasty-sandwich>"[PATCH 1/2] gnu: perl-xml-xpath: Wrap xpath command."
<luis-felipe>Question: is there any way to make "guix build MY_PACKAGE" rebuild the package so that I can make sure all phases are run and actually work?
<surpador>luis-felipe, mirai: thanks a ton!
<luis-felipe>(I mean, make it rebuild the package without having to modify the package definition)
<surpador>I'd appreciate that too, I've been manually GCing the build outputs
<apteryx>luis-felipe: yes, --no-grafts --check
<devmsv>Hi, can anyone help me to package company npm project in guix? I'm using npm-build-system but stuck at 'npm ERR! code ENOTCACHED \n npm ERR! request to failed: cache mode is 'only-if-cached' but no cached response is available.''
<devmsv>of course the package is under node_modules so it shouldn't download anything...
<devmsv>needless to say I know almost nothing about node and I'm still learning guix
<apteryx>npm is probably not a good fit to get an introduction to guix; little is already packaged and there are known dependency cycles which will be hard to tackle
<apteryx>but you are welcome to dive in and help change that if you have the motivation!
<luis-felipe>apteryx: Great, thanks! (How did I miss --check?!)
<devmsv>apteryx: isn't node-build-system just running npm install ? at least I think I could made a package that way even if it is not pure guix package
<Maya[m]1>@devmsv no, you can’t download anything inside a build
<lechner>Hi, does anyone have a packaging example for a simple Guile script? Please share. Thanks!
<mirai>lechner: did you take a look at the guile modules?
<mirai>or grep for things that indicate guile scripts
<lechner>mirai / yes, i had a look around guile-xyz.scm but would appreciate additional pointers
<lechner>perhaps some parallels to python packaging would help me understand the mechanics better (even though i personally never use python). in particular, i wonder if there is mechanism in the Guile build system that propagates additions to GUILE_LOAD_PATH and GUILE_LOAD_COMPILED_PATH and, in case there isn't, if such a facility should exist in order to avoid propagating inputs
<luis-felipe>lechner: for what it's worth, I'm trying to package a guile script and library here:
<tasty-sandwich>"[PATCH] gnu: Add guile-proba."
<lechner>sorry about the name. it's intended to lower the creative threshold for something better than guix-helper-bot, which will otherwise be reinstated as soon as i package the Guile script for it
<tricon>lechner: now i'm hungry.
<luis-felipe>lechner: See this comment specifically:
<tasty-sandwich>"[PATCH] gnu: Add guile-proba."
<luis-felipe>It points to two ways to avoid propagation.
<mirai>how can I debug an error of this form
<mirai>guix build: error: #<procedure 7f8ed8447f40 at gnu/services/audio.scm:330:4 (expr)>: invalid G-expression input
<mirai>that line number is bogus
<mirai>there's no G-Expression there
<lechner>tricon / i can recommend jimmy john's or potbelly's
<lechner>mirai / does that line number even exist?
<mirai>it does but its unrelated
<mirai>I suspect its macromagic at work
<lechner>mirai / can you post the full error message with adjacent line references, please?
<lechner>luis-felipe / thank you! I will look into wrapping also.
<tricon>lechner: Good calls. Funny: I actually live in Jimmy's town (his house is just a few minutes from me). He sold that franchise for $1 billion. Crazy.
<lechner>i don't know. those are some good sandwiches for good value
<tricon>They are! I really liked the crunchy sammich they had recently.
<tricon>Basically a JJ's Big Mac.
<mirai>guix build: error: #<procedure 7f4a05a5cf40 at gnu/services/audio.scm:330:4 (expr)>: invalid G-expression input
<mirai>clearly that line is bogus
<mirai>the procedure itself works fine with the REPL
<mirai>it works fine
<mirai>but that match-lambda?
<mirai>its returning thunks?
<lechner>tricon / jj's is my first stop whenever i'm in the midwest
<mirai>it works in the repl though
<lechner>then either the inputs are different, or the error is elsewhere
<mirai>ah, I found out
<mirai>it "works" in the repl
<mirai>but that's because the Gexp isnt being built yet
<PotentialUser-19>I have a question but it relates to how Guix handles the thing that is OT, basically will Guix stop me from using NF software if I need it?
<lechner>PotentialUser-19 / no, we only try to stop you from needing it
<PotentialUser-19>Great love that. And coming from a NixOS background, does Guix give similar OS configuration capabilities?
<tricon>lechner: If you're ever in the Champaign-Urbana/Central IL region, let me know, and I'll buy.
<unmatched-paren>PotentialUser-19: Yes.
<unmatched-paren>At least, it does do OS and home configuration.
<unmatched-paren>not sure how similar it is.
<PotentialUser-19>Okay. Yeah then I think I want to make the switch. :)
<PotentialUser-19>Does linux-libre conflict with kernel hardening patches much (like is there a linux-libre-hardened)? Asking on the assumption hurd isn't quite ready for prime time.
<lechner>tricon / unfortunately, it's usually chicago, but i have been wanting to visit U-C ever since the internet browser was invented there. (didn't someone ask a question about building mosaic for guix a few weeks ago?) anywhy, this is such friendly channel, i cannot believe it. thanks so much!
<tricon>lechner: Of course! Building Mosaic for Guix... now that would be a fun project.
<PotentialUser-19>Oh, also does Guix System support wayland?
<PotentialUser-19>Okay last annoying question, is there a procedure to install it on an M1 chip? My next machine won't be a mac but this one is.
<jpoiret>not sure we have support for M1, isn't asahi linux basically the only distro with such support?
<PotentialUser-19>*sorta? NixOS works on Asahi because you can basically jury rig it to use the asahi patches.
<jpoiret>well, you could also do that on Guix, but I personally haven't seen anyone do that
<PotentialUser-19>Okay, thank you. :)
<lechner>it would be worth a blog post
<mirai>is '(foo . (1 2 3)) = '(foo (1 2 3))
<unmatched-paren>mirai: i don't think it is
<mirai>I'm in a conundrum here
<unmatched-paren>'(foo . (1 2 3)) is (cons 'foo (cons 1 (cons 2 (cons 3 '()))))
<lechner>no. the latter has a '() a level higher
<ieure>Correct, the former is a single cons cell, the latter is two cons cells.
<unmatched-paren>'(foo (1 2 3)) is (cons 'foo (cons (cons 1 (cons 2 (cons 3 '()))) '())
<unmatched-paren>or: '(foo . (1 . (2 . (3 . ())))) versus '(foo . ((1 . (2 . (3 . ()))) . ()))
<mirai>see if you can make sense of this
<lechner>i think that's because the argument in 4 is part of a list
<lechner>so the serialized value is also encapsulated by a list
<unmatched-paren>mirai: the list passed is '(foo . ((1 2 3) . '()))
<unmatched-paren>so the returned value is ((1 2 3) . '())
<unmatched-paren>or: '((1 2 3)) :)
<unmatched-paren>as lechner says, it's encapsulated by a list
<lechner>that's also a list
<mirai>I see a __missing dot__ now
<lembrun[m]>Would someone be kind enough to test the following snippet ?... (full message at <>)
<mirai>wait, no, that's not it
<lechner>sometimes it's good to take a walk away from the computer. how is the weather outside?
<mirai>lechner: black
<mirai>though I've solved it
<mirai>just some silly mistakes elsewhere
<lechner>Hi, what is the meaning of 'prefix' in a package definition, please?
<unmatched-paren>lechner: where? :)
<lechner>unmatched-paren / anywhere in guile-xyz.scm
<unmatched-paren>lechner: that's just part of WRAP-PROGRAM's syntax
<unmatched-paren>it means the value will be prefixed to the env var's original value
<lechner>ACTION would have expected a symbol
<lechner>i guess the whole thing is quoted
<unmatched-paren>yeah, each clause is quoted
<unmatched-paren>WRAP-PROGRAM is kinda weird
<lechner>unmatched-paren / how am i supposed to use wrap-program without 'assoc-ref inputs ...' please?
<unmatched-paren>lechner: what exactly are you trying to do?
<lechner>wrap a guile script with its runtime prerequisites
<unmatched-paren>ah, and you want to do (string-append (assoc-ref inputs "foo") "/lib/guile/" version "/site-ccache") ettc?
<unmatched-paren>you just replace the assoc-ref with #$(this-package-input "guile-loopdeloop")
<unmatched-paren>it's basically the same as just doing #$guile-loopdeloop, except it takes input transformations into account, iiuc
<unmatched-paren>(which is, incidentally, why you don't do #$guile-loopdeloop :))
<lechner>unmatched-paren / thanks!
<lechner>apteryx / when using wrap-program on a link into the Guile site directory, the wrapper carries the hashbang "#!#f'. (it also creates a copy of the executable.) are you sure wrap-program can be used on links?
<lechner>if not, do i have to precompile Guile scripts manually?
<unmatched-paren>can you show me your package?
<lechner>unmatched-paren /
<unmatched-paren>i'm not sure what's going on there, sorry :(
<unmatched-paren>(also: too many let bindings! :))
<lechner>ACTION is open to suggestions
<unmatched-paren>lechner: ah, i think i know the problem
<unmatched-paren>(wrap-program script ...) == (wrap-program "bin/guix-helper-bot")
<unmatched-paren>should be (wrap-program "/gnu/store/.../bin/guix-helper-bot"), methinks
<mirai>the naptcha and co. bindings don't seem to be used anywhere?
<lechner>they will be, and 'bin' includes #$output
<unmatched-paren> <- opinions wanted: too silly for dissecting guix part 2? :P
<jpoiret>I wouldn't capitalize monad
<lechner>that type of post has been called a rite of passage
<jpoiret>I could possibly contribute to the monad explanation part
<unmatched-paren>jpoiret: that would be helpful, thank you :)
<jpoiret>"so a monad is just a monoidal object in the monoidal category of endofunctors"
<lechner>isn't scheme's 'begin' a monad sequencer for beginners?
<jpoiret>have you written anything yet?
<jpoiret>no, there's nothing monadic about begin
<jpoiret>you don't have bind, and it has effects
<unmatched-paren>i believe mdo is kind of like a monadic begin?
<unmatched-paren>jpoiret: i have written some things about guix's monads specifically
<unmatched-paren>but not that much
<unmatched-paren>i'm not sure how to word an introduction to monads in general
<jpoiret>yeah, that's the age old issue
<unmatched-paren>anyway, what i want to know right now is, is this first paragraph too silly or okay?
<jpoiret>especially in scheme, where we do have effects and no type system, the pros don't seem obvious at first
<jpoiret>well, no static type system I should say
<jpoiret>I personally think that it could be good to not mention, even through jokes, that monads are a complex thing
<unmatched-paren>that's a good point
<unmatched-paren>what about this before the heading instead? :)
<jpoiret>I don't want to be the mood-killer but it's probably best to also avoid medical-adjacent vocabulary as well, and "Warning:" might still be a bit too offputting for some. Maybe something a bit more tame, something like "Monads (of course we were going to talk about them)"?
<unmatched-paren>Fair enough.
<jpoiret>i know the temptation to say "please don't run away" is strong but i don't think it has ever elicited a positive response from the uninitiated unfortunately
<jpoiret>(i may have done the same in the past as well)
<unmatched-paren>Finefinefine... yeah, it is tempting :)
<jpoiret>but the same can be said for things like "monads are actually very easy, look!", imo it's best not to alter the reader's expectations in any way :)
<unmatched-paren>Regarding the capitalisation of "What is a Monad?", that's how English titles usually work.
<unmatched-paren>It's weird, but it's very common :)
<jpoiret>oh you're right, i always get confused about those
<bjc>monads are very easy the same way running is very easy: after you've done it a lot, it's not so hard anymore. but if you haven't done it at all, it looks impossible
<bjc>so, yeah, i also hate the "look how simple it is" approach
<unmatched-paren>jpoiret: Eh, it's fine. English has all sorts of nonsense, and yet you and many others here are indistinguishable from native speakers most of the time :)
<jpoiret>if something that the infamous "monads are like burritos" blog post alongside all the "no, monads are not like burritos" counter posts taught me, it's that explaining monads is not a solved problem :)
<bjc>it definitely is not. my only advice to everyone is "you get used to after a while", and even then i'm not so sure…
<lembrun[m]>Monads are monoid (objects) in the (monoidal) category of endofunctors (which is monoidal with respect to functor composition).
<lembrun[m]>pretty clear isn't it ?
<unmatched-paren>Given that I don't understand very much in that statement at all, i'm not sure i'm qualified to be writing a blog post about monads.
<unmatched-paren>(i know vaguely what monoids are, but not what endofunctors are)
<lembrun[m]>it comes form
<jpoiret>unmatched-paren: heh, that's the category theorist's explanation, not that (immidiately) useful from a pure programmer's perspective
<jpoiret>i also suggest _not_ using the idea section from the nlab
<unmatched-paren>jpoiret: i think part of the problem might be that guix doesn't implement that many monads
<unmatched-paren>so you can't really start with a Maybe to explain the basics
<jpoiret>yea, and since there's no type system it's harder to just say "oh I have something of type A → M B"
<jpoiret>also, for a tutorial, I think it's mistaken to use programming names like "Maybe A", "List A", but rather plain descriptions like "either an error or something in A" and "zero or more things of A"
<unmatched-paren>and also, demonstrating the %store-monad seems to require gexps
<unmatched-paren>but there's not been a gexp post yet
<unmatched-paren>so, i have no idea how to start, which is why this has taken so long :(
<unmatched-paren>(sorry about that)
<bjc>good posts and explainers on these topics have already been waiting years. a little more time won't hurt anyone =)
<lembrun[m]>I did find this one pretty nice when I got introduced to the concept
<jpoiret>yeah, probably doing a review of most good (and also not so good) monad tutorials out there could be a good starting point
<tricon>lembrun[m]: that title made me LOL.
<unmatched-paren>lembrun[m]: problem is, you can't really progressively explain guix monads like that
<lembrun[m]>yeah but that's a start
<unmatched-paren>guix has no functors or monoids
<unmatched-paren>and it only has an identity monad, a state monad, and a store monad
<unmatched-paren>none of which are helpful for explaining :(
<jpoiret>i mean, the other usual monads shouldn't be too hard to implement, right?
<unmatched-paren>right, but we'd need to say something like "okay paste this into the repl before continuing: (define-monad ...) (define-monad ...)"
<bjc>maybe it'd be better to come at it from the problem guix is trying to solve with the store monad, and how monads solve it?
<unmatched-paren>there's an idea, but i'm not sure exactly what the problem is :)
<bjc>ultimately, guix is trying to be a pure functional package manager (for handwavey reasons), but it still needs to compose packages together to build a distribution
<bjc>which leads you pretty directly to needing a monad for the store
<bjc>or, at least, that's my understanding of it
<unmatched-paren>you don't really "need" it as far as i understand it
<unmatched-paren>it's possible, but discouraged, to not use monads
<jpoiret>the store monad is basically just threading the store connection around instead of keeping it in every function's argument list
<bjc>for managing state, it would be tough not to use a monad, because its hard to compose ad-hoc solutions to the problem
<jpoiret>you'd be surprised at how much state there is in Guix though :) there are a lot of guile parameters, eg %current-system or %current-target-system
<jpoiret>which is a source of problems: because there's no clear monadic interface, you don't know whether something you're calling actually relies on some state or not, otherwise you'd have to "run" the monad
<Maya[m]1>bjc: well monads are only a great way to compose pure functions with effects, as guile is not a pure language and guix is pure only externally it doesnt matter that much
<bjc>i should say it's hard to manage state in a pure functional environment without monads ;)
<bjc>guix the programming environment is definitely not pure functions =)
<Maya[m]1>well im writing a pure language with effects, and it is possible, but monads abstract the horror of composing a string of lambdas that need to pass a continuation with each other
<bjc>ACTION . o O (let's port guix to haskell!)
<Maya[m]1>haskell is not a lisp :(
<lembrun[m]>What about prolog ?
<bjc>just wrap haskell in parens. problem solved!
<jpoiret>you forgot the meta-programming part though
<Maya[m]1>bjc: hey you are talking about my language pretty much haha
<jpoiret>meta-programming in strongly typed languages is hard
<Maya[m]1>lisp with static typing
<lembrun[m]>Maya[m]1: something like this ?
<Maya[m]1>lembrun[m]: yeah kinda! but more lispy, also with the full algebraic type system
<Maya[m]1>a lot inspired by typed-scheme and clojure
<Maya[m]1>lembrun[m]: what do you men? /genq
<ham5urg>I have a remote machine running some Ubuntu crap. I want to reboot with the guix iso file but can't alter the machines boot method. Is it possible to "hot-boot" the iso-file right from the HD in a magical way?
<jpoiret>no, unfortunately
<lembrun[m]>Nothing I just wanted to talk about prolog, I find this fascinating
<Maya[m]1>ham5urg: you can install guix alongside apt though!
<jpoiret>but, you can use a live system to install guix on it
<Maya[m]1>lembrun[m]: yeah prolog is cool! but it is really hard once you start with cuting branches, as you need to think like the resolution algorythm
<ham5urg>Maybe I can get to GRUB and boot it from there.
<jpoiret>I'd suggest installing guix on ubuntu and using that to install guix system, that's what I did for my laptop
<Maya[m]1>ham5urg: if you can boot to grub, you can manually boot anything from the shell
<apteryx>lechner: it has to be used on the actual program I guess
<unmatched-paren>night guix \o
<ham5urg>I went through the gui-installation-process and after the vnc-console (a remote machine) shows two lines, the first is "sheperd: Service guix-daemon has been stopped." and the second is "sheperd: Service guix-daemon has been started.". It seems to me that the machine hangs. Or is it just slow? The webpanel of the hoster shows a 100% CPU and traffic and some mem-usage. It looks like it is installing but can't see any
<ham5urg>more terminal output.
<rekado>for days now I’ve been tweaking java packages in an attempt to increase the default JDK version
<rekado>it’s gnarly
<rekado>I think what I really need is to section the graph and then build all the stuff close to the root with JDK 8, and all the stuff above a certain cutoff with the latest JDK
<rekado>do we have a way to render a graph for all packages by build system?
<PotentialUser-22>Hi, what is the difference in capabilities between guix and guix system?
