<ToxicAegis>Perhaps it's possible the USB I purchased isn't compatible with the free firmware, which would be unfortunate. I'm not entirely sure how I would verify that.
<mekeor>ToxicAegis: i don't have any ath9k_htc compatible wifi-card on my computer but running "sudo modprobe ath9k_htc" runs just fine
<mekeor>apteryx: wouldn't that be a difficult problem to solve since some env vars allow :-appending, other don't..?
<ToxicAegis>I booted it up again just to confirm. lsmod does actually work, I must have been thinking of a different command. But yeah "modprobe ath9k_htc" returns a fatal error of module not found.
<ToxicAegis>I also found an open issue(53624) from Jan 2022 which seems to indicate the same issue, however there are no responses/solutions.
<denys>hello. are the official servers of substitutes expected to be working now? i'm getting installation errors since yesterday. thought it was temporary or something on my side, but it repeats, and on clean installs too
<mekeor>ToxicAegis: do you use linux-libre kernel?
<BitPuffin>So when y'all work on a project in guile and break it into separate files. Do you a) Add root directory to module load path and then use use-modules to import the modules, or do you just use load combined with use-modules in some main file?
<sneek>attila_lendvai, civodul says: re disabled Shepherd services, could you please email bug-guix stating how to reproduce the problem? i'm happy to take a look afterwards, time permitting!
<attila_lendvai>sneek, later tell civodul: re disabled Shepherd services that are being respawn: once i have a reproducer, i'll send a bug report. until then a hint: `guix system reconfigure` is probably involved in triggering the situation.
<Kolev>I'm nervous. I feel I have polluted my system by failing to install Guix on it.
<rekado>yeah, I sometimes feel like that when I’m using a traditional distro. No matter what I do :)
<Kolev>Silverblue containerizes everything, but Guix probably won't work inside a container, as it manages containers.
<Kolev>(I'm *not* on Silverblue. I know installing Guix on there is uncharted territory.)
<rekado>ACTION doesn’t know silverblue, but also has no interest in getting to know it.
<pret7>hello, what's the best way to put secrets into a guix system configuration file? I have an opensmtpd configuration with an email password that I want to use. Ideally it would decrypt at first login or something.
<Kolev>But, yeah. Guix isn't working on Fedora Workstation.
