<florhizome[m]>could it be that my User profile has a manifest incompatibility 🤔 <apteryx>'guix pack -f rpm hello' update: generated rpm package now validates & installs! <apteryx>perhaps the only non-rpmbuild rpm generator out there <jackhill>apteryx: not to rain on your parade, but what about fpm? <sneek>Welcome back abrenon, you have 3 messages! <sneek>abrenon, nckx says: A hack (but totally legitimate fix) would be to replace the thousand of symlinks with hard links. <sneek>abrenon, nckx says: I don't actually see any disadvantage to that. <abrenon>nckx: wow that's a great fix, I wouldn't even have dreamt of it <abrenon>I wonder if there wouldn't be some optimization to perform at the directory level, since it's SVG I guess all the resolutions (24x24, 48x48…) must contain the exact same files <abrenon>but that would probably require more work than is needed <abrenon>regarding your comment about the source, the source is about 100k inodes, the real problem to me is the expanded build which was over 1M inodes <mekeor[m]>how long will people hang around tomorrow, thursday, at guix days? there is no programme, afaik. <gabber`>"As was the case pre-pandemic, we are also organizing the Guix Days as a FOSDEM fringe event, a two-day Guix workshop where contributors and enthusiasts will meet" <mrvdb>Is there a way to specify a local package definition and have dependencies follow the override? For example, i leave out 'aalib' as input for gst-plugins-good (fails on ppc64). On every upgrade i have to respecify that every time. Tried using the same name locally, but that just issues a warning 'ambiguous...' and takes the default. <broken_fontconfi>hi I'm trying to build fontconfig-minimal but it fails at a test, couldn't find any information online and the test failure is quite obscure <broken_fontconfi>`/gnu/store/5riz6vz07gj63z14kw763zb049bdb6x4-fontconfig-minimal-2.13.94.drv` <nckx>broken_fontconfi: Hullo! Is that error reproducible, i.e., does it happen each time you retry ‘guix build $that-drv’? Maybe try -c1 to rule out parallelisation bugs? <nckx>My substitute server has it, so it must be buildable *somehow*. <broken_fontconfi>nckx yes, it fails every time, just tried running with -c1 (guix build $drv -c1) and still the same failure <nckx>…it does not fail here. Could you host/paste the log file somewhere and share it here? <gabber`>nckx: are the IRC logs for today missing? <nckx>Oh bother. I guess so, if you're asking. <nckx>Apparently goggles-the-bot has trouble with months. <nckx>They are not missing, but appended to 2023-01-31.log.
