<NewUser-Basic-Qu>Hi...playing with sway. Wanted to try some modding. if i check wm.scm i see that sway version is 1.6.1 and has sha256 (base32 " 0j4sdbsrlvky1agacc0pcz9bwmaxjmrapjnzscbd2i0cria2fc5j").. My assumption was if i download the 1.6.1 version via guix download <source> i will see the base32 but i do not. Waht am i missing?
<pkill9>is guix system usable on raspberry pi yet?
<mvnx>I use-modules `(gnu packages vim)` which defines `neovim`. Is there a way I can get the binary name, or at least it's primary `out` path, from that? I'm sure it's documented but I don't know the keywords for what I'm trying to do.
<jgart[m]>mvnx: you can use a gexp to get the binary name
<jgart[m]>depends the context in which you need that binary name
<mvnx>I was still experimenting with this `$VISUAL` thing - probably not needed. I'm brand new to all of this just trying to get a working system primarily so maybe I'll focus on that and then dig deeper into Guile and more advanced things here.
<jgart[m]>one thing you can do is just focus on learning the package manager first
<jgart[m]>learn how to package and contribute packages, updates, etc.
<next4th>um, i don't get the humor point, but there must be some in your words. lol
<mvnx>jgart[m]: I'd like to learn to understand my Guix system very well and actually learn Guile (I've wanted to learn a Lisp for a long time). It seems things are still a bit early so it's a good opportunity to contribute while I learn. It's difficult to paint a long term goal but if I'm contributing new packages or updates for things I need then I
<mvnx>would continue to maintain them. If I learn more Guile, maybe I could contribute in other ways. It's been surprisingly easy to create and update packages locally given I have zero Lisp background and just starting to explore with Guix.
<sarg>hi guix. Is there some status page for guix on a non-gnu domain? It seems that *.gnu.org is not responding and unfortunately there is no way to find out what's the deal. lists/issues/ci/irc logs/substitutes - everything is on gnu.org
<NewUser-Basic-Qu>Question: I want toexperiment with packages a bit. Therefore i took sway-package from wm.scm and tried to mod it. First thing was i thought i use "guix download" to check base32 of existing configuration. Seems i am not able to fetch a sway 1.6.1 Version that has base32 "0j4sdbsrlvky1agacc0pcz9bwmaxjmrapjnzscbd2i0cria2fc5j". What am i doing
<Hasnep[m]>Hi everyone, quick question, does anyone have any experience using a DE installed through Guix on a foreign distro? Does anything break, anything I need to be aware of, or should I just stick to installing a DE through my system's package manager? I'm thinking of Sway particularly, but if people have experience with other DEs that'd be good to know too. Thanks :)
<madand>I'm too contemplating setting up my new maching with Devuan as the kernel+zfs+drivers only. And having all the other user-level tools (Pipewire, Sway, Emacs ...) managed with Guix. Has anyone tried having Wayland, Sway and Pipewire installed via Guix on a foreign distro like that?
<ds-ac>Hi. I am new to guix and am having trouble getting my smartcard to work (fresh GuixOS installation). I have added the pcscd service to my configuration and have reconfigured my system. When trying to decrypt something, gpg uses the correct key, but fails with "decryption failed: No secret key". I first thought that gpg could not find any pinentry program, so I added "pinentry-program $(which
<ds-ac>pinentry-qt)" to gpg-agent.conf, without success
<ds-ac>Does any of you have an idea of additionnal steps I should take ?
