<apteryx>I meant, I don't think MELPA is vetted by the FSF as FSDG-compliant
<apteryx>that doesn't mean the packages that are on it are not FSDG-compliant themselves. In fact, most of them probably are. We have a melpa importer with 'guix import elpa -t melpa' if I recall correctly
<ieugen[m]>unwox: hi, I managed to run guix inside a docker container by mounting channels file, /gnu and socket inside container. but seems like I have to run guix pull since package definitions are not available.
<attila_lendvai>hrm. how come that with my user doesn't have wayland according to `guix package --list-installed | grep wayland`, and guix system either according to `guix package --profile=/run/current-system/profile --list-installed | grep wayland`, but `ps afxu | grep wayland` shows that xorg-server-xwayland-21.1.3 is running?
<jlicht>attila_lendvai: `guix graph --path xorg-server-xwayland wayland' shows that there's a direct dependency, so xorg-server-xwayland can/could just use the wayland program. It doesn't have to be installed anywhere for that to happen, it just needs to exist in the store
<mfg[m]>is there a builtin guix function to change all occurences of /bin/$prog in files under a directory with the correct store paths to these?
<attila_lendvai>jlicht, oooh, that makes sense, thanks! (note that xorg-server-xwayland should show up in the grep, but i guess the same applies to it through another dependency)
<jlicht>lechner: np! I changed the authorship to an existing email address you used earlier, instead of guix-patches. Hope that's okay!
<lechner>jlicht / okay, i am a noobie (and have difficulties with git send-email) but i am looking at Debbugs. Did I submit v2 from another address?
<lechner>it's okay to mention specifics here. I thought I had used firstname.lastname@example.org
<jlicht>lechner: no, I don't think you did anything wrong. I even see many 'Name via <guix-patches>' authors in our commit log, but I saw in your contribution that you _also_ cc'd yourself on that particular email
<lechner>that may have been because i misunderstood the default behavior of 'git send-email'
<lechner>Did 'git send-email' modify my authorship?
<rekado>nope. Not ethernet, just fiber channel connection between HBA and SAN
<irfus>Hello again, guix. Back with an update: I tried reconfiguring with guix home, with only the guix channel enabled, and the minimal example configuration from the manual. This still failed to create the link to .guix-home in my homedir and properly activate the home profile.
<Guest46>why does the installation require at least one user and does not allow a system with only a root user?
<acrow>apteryx: Yes, cups requires you to select the driver for your printer. I've seldom been able to find an exact match but usually just another printer in the line of printers from which you descend. Oftentimes selecting a ps printer can also work bc ghostscript provides good generic translations (I think using the hpip drivers).
<apteryx>did you try the hplip utility? it has a 'hp-setup' thingy
<Guest46>If I use Guix System and do "guix install virt-manager", does it install the libvirtd service for me as well or do I need to do that manually?
<ieugen[m]>I believe more people could experiment with guix if they could run it as part of their CI/CD pipeline.
<ieugen[m]>this is what drew me to try guix in the first place
<PotentialUser-11>is there anything stopping program from loading libraries from for example user directory?
<apteryx>no, if you for example set LD_LIBRARY_PATH
<PotentialUser-11>i have set it and it does't work. from strace it seems that it finds it and then tries to load it again this time using package's ld.so.cache and because of that fails. i gues i will need to package it and add it to inputs...
<mfg[m]>Why is it always frustrating to package software for guix? Especially when trying to unbundle things. I mean sure, it's bundled for a reason; but this is soooooo annoying... :|
<lechner>that's cool. (well, as cool as ODBC can be.) i'll let you know if i convert guile-dbi. each of these C snippets is only 100-300 lines long, and much of it managing the conversion to SCM
<grim`>Hello. I was creating a derivation and I'm wondering how could I reference it's output path from scheme code. I would like to add the output path as a string to the `themes-directory` field of the `sddm-configuration` type. Anyone could please help me figuring out the syntax?
<jgart[m]>What do people think of having a `guix clone` command that passes the result of (-> network-manager (package-source) (origin-uri)) to `git clone`? -> is from guile-pipe package in upstream guix
<civodul>jgart[m]: hey! sounds interesting; there's some overlap with "guix build -S" and with "--with-branch" and the likes, i wonder how we could improve symbiosis :-)
<civodul>it's good to picture more people behind those nicknames now, gives IRC a different taste!
<devmsv>I would like to create a guile script that builds nginx config from ngnix-configuration so I can easily change and test without having to reconfigure. Any tips on how to even start to do something like this?
<civodul>roptat: an indeed, that's what build.cc does, so the manual is nicely accurate
<civodul>devmsv: i would test the nginx config in a VM, with "guix system vm"; would that be an option for you?
<roptat>great, so I guess I can disable these tests. I wonder why they worked before I patches the stream copy function...
<devmsv>civodul: that's what I'm doing now, but still feels a little bit slow.
<devmsv>because then I have to enter in the VM look at nginx logs, shutdown, rewrite, wait for vm to start again...
<jonsger>debbugs doesn't like me or my mail provider. Getting only some messages from bugs or even none :(
<old>anybody working on HIP and Roctracer? Asking because I'm trying and it's a nightmare
<attila_lendvai>devmsv, this is an executable guile script that shows how to add a dir to the load path. then import the relevant guix modules, and you can call the config serializer.
