<gabber>where are differences in package definitions determined?
<nckx>gabber: A different way to think about this that might help is you explicitly asked Guix to build something called wayland 1.21.0 using the sources of wayland 1.20.0. By mistake, but you still did. You gave it a URL as *hint* (not identifier) where it might find them, but since that URL is bogus Guix can't tell the difference between a broken upstream and a mistaken hash.
<Guest46>I have installed ovmf package as well but I can't choose other than bios. Is it because I am not using Guix System?
<Guest46>Ah I know why, it requires configuration, though I don't know how.
<lechner>attila_lendvai / unmatched-paren / mroh / Hi, 'forcemerge' is usually easier to use than merge because it resolves status inconsistencies between the bugs that might otherwise prevent a merge. also, closing either of the two bugs after the merge will close both (and is hence a mistake). when it is finally time to close the bug, it it is better to close via email to XXX-done, because closing bugs requires a reason, which cannot be
<sneek>lechner, haugh says: A while ago, I saw you were looking at composing forms around abort on #f. Have you seen chain-and from SRFI-197? The syntax-case implementation works for me; you just need eof-object from (ice-9 binary-ports) and let-values from (srfi srfi-11)
<xd1le>Hi! I just booted into a newly installed guix system \o/ But how do I shutdown?
<xd1le>I know it's halt, but how do I shutdown immediately?
<dcunit3d>i'm using emacs-* packages from guix on a foreign distro, but whenever i use `C-h k` or `C-h f` to look things up, i get an error for "(void variable read-symbol-positions-list)". it's pointing to the correct files in the hashed /gnu/store package AFAIK. is there something I need to do to set this up?
<lechner>cwebber / Hi, thanks for those links last week! What was your motivation (or use case) for syrup over straight preserves, please?
<lechner>i see the ordering and like it, but am otherwise unsure of the benefits above canonicalization
<lechner>Hi, why does guix shell -f guix.scm not ensure that the build product exists, please? I wish it would invoke guix build -f guix.scm if it didn't
<Guest46>How can I configure `virt-manager`with `ovmf`?
<mekeor[m]><dcunit3d> "i'm using emacs-* packages..." <- does it work with emacs -Q?
<nckx>lechner: Very minor feature request: a list of URLs that make no sense to <title>, like paste.debian.net.
<nckx>unmatched-paren is correct, there's no forced ‘-O2 -fwhatever’ for Guix packages (Guix uses this flag to build *itself*, nothing more). However, autotools does default to -O2 -g, so it's quite common. But no, no distro-wide -funroll-loops -mplacebo.
<mfg[m]>how do i know the actual label of an input? i'm looking at the build failure of itk-snap and the problem seems to be that gnu/packages/image-processing.scm:1470 doesn't find a suitable labeled input and theregore returns #f which leads to a build failure
<nckx>unmatched-paren, attila_lendvai: ‘merge 36069 60002 \n close 60002’: ‘merge’ makes bugs synonyms of each other, so combining it with ‘close’ makes little sense (and will in fact close both if the merge succeeds—since they are now 2 names for 1 bug).
<nckx>Sorry, just replying to random old backlog… :)
<nckx>mfg[m]: If you're using the ‘new’ label-less input style, my recommendation is not to try to guess the label. Whatever it is, it's not API, and could change. Instead, use helpers like search-input-file. If that's not an option, it's fine to keep the ‘old’ style. There are other packages that do just that.
<nckx>mfg[m]: …*however*, my guess is that here it's "qtdeclarative", no "-5".
<mekeor[m]><unmatched-paren> "could somebody review #61214..." <- heh, i could, but i'm a little fatigue after travelling so much. i need a little rest. but i bet it's very good and you don't really need my feedback :D

<neox>Good evening. I'm trying to update a python lib that depends on gtk+ and I obtain an error during the check phase : "RuntimeError: Gtk couldn't be initialized. Use Gtk.init_check() if you want to handle this case"
<neox>I made the lib depend on gtk+ and python-pygobject
