<Kolev>hello-world.scm: Error:
<mirai>pret7 why not use something like ansible/script to provision the secrets?
<Kolev>Since installing Guix on Fedora, I can no longer log into my desktop session...
<amirny2205>Hi. When installing guix, it tries to access, but they're unreachable. How to prevent it from accessing the servers? It's 800mn everything is gotta be there. Thanks.
<amirny2205>Plugging of ethernet gives error that it has to be connected to internet
<oriansj>amirny2205: no guix is not a light distro by default; it includes a great deal because most people don't know what they need.
<Kolev>I should post to the ML...

<stevenroose>I broke my Guix, I think I know what did it, but both Firefox and the guix commands are broken, so I can't easily find fixes or report.
<stevenroose>Basically, I think the fuckup was doing `guix install runc` in my home folder so it installed a different runc for my user than for the system. My battery ran out and I rebooted and suddenly most GUI applications give "command not found".
<stevenroose>Then also doing `guix package -r runc` (or any other package really, literally any) gives "unsupported manifest format"
<stevenroose>I tried running `PATH=<path-without-my-.guix-path> guix package -r runc` but that doesn't work.
<stevenroose>doesn't help*
<stevenroose>Anyone got an idea how to fix this? Or if it's really the runc fuckup that causes this?
<stevenroose>Can I manage my user's guix stuff from root using flags?
<stevenroose>Hmm, weird, doing `guix package --profile=/home/steven/.guix-profile -r runc` also gives "unsupported manifeste format"
<stevenroose>Doing `guix package --profile=/home/steven/.config/guix/current -r runc` says it doesn't have the package. Why is there two profiles for my user?
<stevenroose>Heh, it seems that `/home/steven/.guix-profile/manifest` is empty
<stevenroose>Strange.. My laptop did a hard shutdown because of battery. But I
<stevenroose>I didn't think I was doing guix stuff in the meantime
<stevenroose>Wow I didn't know Guix was such a European project :) It's 03:43 here (Prague) and there seems to be noone
<pret7>your login shell sources your guix profile somehow im guessing?
<pret7>I don't have a foregin distro setup anymore so can't confirm
<pret7>but I think removing the guix related stuff from whatever your login shell is sourcing (~/.bash_profile, ~/profile) should atleast fix the gui program issues
<stevenroose>pret7: yeah somehow the manifest file is empty, but the other one isn't (why is tehre two profiles?)
<stevenroose>I wanted to set it to the other one, but ofc they point to the store so they're read-only
<pret7>you mean the root profile and the user profile right? I found that really confusing too.
<stevenroose>My guix (when run as a normal user), lists these:
<stevenroose>Is one the system profile and the other the user one? They both look like a user one? If I run that command as root, I get:
<stevenroose>So the TL;DR is that somehow my <profile-dir>/manifest file is empty which makes me unable to do any package manipulations, it seems.
<pret7>Hmmm, I think the current-guix is for guix itself
<pret7>and the ~/.guix-profile is for the default user profile
<pret7>from here:
<pret7>does guix pull work?
<pret7>guix package --roll-back might work
<stevenroose>no longer from my user
<stevenroose>and guix package doesn't work from my user
<stevenroose>gonna do another guix pull and reconfigure cycle from root this time
<stevenroose>hey achow101 :D
<Kolev>pret7: does gnome do .profile or .bash_profile?
<Kolev>pret7: commenting out Guix .bash_profile lines did not fix login
<pret7>uh depends on your login shell, for me stuff gets sourced from /etc/profile and ~/.profile (which gets stuff from guix home)
<Kolev>pret7: there is no .profile
<pret7>oh odd
<pret7>is there guix stuff in your /etc/profile?
<Kolev>pret7: no
<pret7>hmmm wait your issue is that you can't login?
<pret7>and you're on a foreign distro right? debian?
<Kolev>pret7: fedora
<Kolev>pret7: can't log in
<cow_2001>the `guix install guile gnutls guile-gnutls` setup is making weird errors. (@ (web request) http-get) fails to get an https.

<maybe-mekeor>hello. when using guix on a foreign distro and starting X with `xinit ... -configdir ~/.guix-profile/share/X11/xorg.conf.d`, how to install another xorg-configuration file into that directory? can i use xorg-configuration within a package definition, possibly using copy-build-system?
<civodul>Hello Guix!
<iyzsong>Hello :3
<iyzsong>maybe-mekeor: you can use 'xorg-wrapper', from (gnu services xorg)), to build a package with custom 'X' command and config (ref: xorg-server-profile-service)
<maybe-mekeor>iyzsong: cool, thanks :) i guess i can use (xorg-wrapper my-conf) within the copy-build-system
<maybe-mekeor>oh, package-source accepts file-like objects, too
<maybe-mekeor>thanks for the "ref" :)
<maybe-mekeor>i guess i could have just used xorg-server-profile-service if it was exported
<iyzsong>yeah, any lower-able object (package / file-like, etc) can be referenced in gexp, source/inputs are referenced in the same way in gexp too.
<maybe-mekeor>another question: having password-store installed and using zsh, auto-completion for 'pass' does not work for me. what's wrong? this symlink also exists: ~/.guix-profile/share/zsh/site-functions/_pass
<iyzsong>not sure, but maybe zsh need some environment variable or config in zshrc find its complections?
<Ack25>i just did a fresh guix install

<Kolev>Installing Guix on Fedora 38 broke my system. I cannot log in anymore.
<civodul>Kolev: hi! could you be more specific: what happens when you log in? any error messages?
<Kolev>There are no error messages. I log into GNOME, the screen goes gray like it's loading GNOME, and then it returns me to the login screen.
<Kolev>Unless there are some files I should check. What are those?
<Kolev>I've seen two bug reports about this same issue.
<civodul>oh, something with XDG_DATA_DIRS interfering?
<Kolev>civodul, likely.
<rekado>compiling the sources today I get this warning: gnu/home/services/ssh.scm:203:0: warning: possibly unbound variable `serialize-match-criteria'
<efraim>almost 23 hours to build opencv on riscv64-linux
<rekado>the remote git repo says: warning: There are too many unreachable loose objects; run 'git prune' to remove them.
<panosalevro>anyone planning on package hyprland?
<Kolev>civodul, so, how do I fix the XDG_DATA_DIRS thing?
<civodul>Kolev: i don't know; do you have a link to the bug reports you found?
<civodul>Kolev: as a stopgap, you can "guix remove" packages that cause XDG_DATA_DIRS to be defined (check "guix package --search-paths")
<civodul>a better solution might be to not source ~/.guix-profile/etc/profile until after login
<Kolev>civodul, I removed all the packages in my Guix profile.
<civodul>then i suppose XDG_DATA_DIRS is no longer defined, is it?
<Kolev>civodul, hm. Still defined with Guix stuff in it.
<Kolev>Oh, looks like I still have some stuff installed.
<Kolev>Removed all Guix-installed software. Login works now. But this means I cannot use Guix.
<janneke>i haven't followed the discussion closely, but it sounds like "someone" needs to bisect which guix package breaks your login, and then find out why/how?
<Kolev>libadwaita did.
<janneke>what's the story with harfbuzz, and harfbuzz-5 inheriting from it duplicating its source?
<janneke>(define-public harfbuzz-5 harfbuzz) seems identical to me?
<ChocolettePalett>> li-BAD-waita
<civodul>am i right that tex-team was merged? neat!
<podiki[m]>any pandoc users here? the backedn we have that? it uses webkit I believe but don't see it in a webkit package or as a separate package
<stevenroose>hi all
<stevenroose>I made this issue last night:
<stevenroose>Currently I think my "home profile" broke. So I'm not even sure what to do as last resort measure. I thought, I can backup my home dir (it's a separate partition anyway) and just reinstall the OS from my configuration.
<stevenroose>But if it's the home profile that is broken.. How would that help..
<stevenroose>Is there a way to remove/recover/fix a home profile?
<spacecadet[m]>stevenroose: Not sure the BEST way to fix this, but your profile generations are stored in /var/guix/profiles/per-user/, the same way system generations are saved, you should be able to roll-back to a previous one
<stevenroose>spacecadet[m]: how do I rollback?
<spacecadet[m]>stevenroose: That I am unsure of, you could try the advice given in this thread
<stevenroose>spacecadet[m]: also, why do I have two of them? Is that default behavior?
<stevenroose>in /var/guix/profiles/per-user/steven there is guix-profile and derivatives and current-guix and derivatives.
<stevenroose>Oh I didn't see guix package had --roll-back (instead of a roll-back command like guix system and guix home)
<stevenroose>That might actually have fixed it.
<spacecadet[m]>There are differences between current-guix and guix-profile, some web searching will give you a better explanation than I can summarize here. Glad you found a fix, the manual always has a lot of information for situations like this.
<pistrie>goodday everyone. I'm trying to install spice-vdagent as a guest, but after enabling the service and reconfiguring I get this warning: "warning: 'spice-vdagent-service' is deprecated. use 'Start the @command{vdagentd} and @command{vdagent] daemons from @var{spice-vdagent} to enable guest window resizing and clipboard sharing.' instead"
<pistrie>What does this mean
<sneek>Welcome back pistrie, you have 1 message!
<sneek>pistrie, pkill9_ says: you can also use (specification->package "package name"), then you don't need to import modules as you aren't using the package variables
<pistrie>im pretty sure that message is a bug, but still
<attila_lendvai>the #:log-file of fork+exec-command does not save stderr, only stdout. is there some fundamental obstacle, or is this merely an omission?
<attila_lendvai>(this is in shepherd, service.scm)
<attila_lendvai>AFAIU, shepherd should be refactored to use spawn here. maybe it's a good opportunity to deal with this problem?
<attila_lendvai>also, it'd be nice if what currently is a logging facility could be abstracted to receive a fiber that gulps the stdio, so that services can provide their own fibers to implement more complex communication with the daemon. maybe.
<janneke>sneek: later tell civodul: i found something interesting, many of guile-2.0.14's thread tests that do (thread-join ..) seem to hang. i'm not sure that they used to pass, guile-2.0.14's package description suggests there wase a time where they passed.
<sneek>Got it.
<janneke>sneek: botsnack
<janneke>ACTION produces many weird typos these days, right sneek?
<janneke>yeah, nobody cares
<johnabs[m]>Hey guys, I'm having a locale issue apparently with both libreoffice and julia, would anyone happen to have any ideas on how to address this? P.S. I figured out my xmonad build issue :3
<johnabs[m]>Sorry, to clarify, here's the exact issue: (soffice:22905): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:28:07.284: Locale not supported by C library.
<johnabs[m]> Using the fallback 'C' locale.

<mirai>attila_lendvai: interesting, there's a few parameters in fork+exec & friends that aren't documented in the manual
<mirai>extra-ports for instance
<mirai>attila_lendvai: fork+exec uses exec-command and the docstring says: … File descriptors 1 and 2 are kept as is or redirected to
<mirai>either LOG-PORT or LOG-FILE if it's true, whereas file descriptor 0 (standard input) points to INPUT-PORT or /dev/null.
<Kolev>I cant log in. I had to remove all Guix programs to be able to log in again.
<Kolev>Foreign disrro.
<reed55>Hi All, I'm trying to wrap my mind around guix configuration. I'm having trouble understanding "guix home". If I have   (packages (specifications->packages (list "htop" "vim"))) in configuration.scm and then run "guix home container configuration.scm" I am able to use htop and vim in the containerized preview. However, if I run "guix home
<reed55>reconfigure configuration.scm" the commands aren't available. I see them in .guix-home/profile/bin but it seems that .guix-home/profile/bin wasn't added to my path
<lilyp>reed55: is this your first time running guix home? if so, it's not expected that the paths are already set up IIRC
<lilyp>you can set up things manually, but you shouldn't need to do so on your next reboot
<reed55>I see. So if I reboot, the paths should all be set up?
<reed55>I will give that a try and report back. Thanks!
<reed62>Rebooting worked. Thanks!
<attila_lendvai>mirai, someone told me that Guile's SPAWN was specifically added to abstract away all the woodoo that is needed to deal with signal handlers and whatnot on various platforms.
<mirai>at first sight, exec-command seems to account for both stdout and stderr
<mirai>unrelated to the above, is there a way to explicitly unregister a non-transient shepherd service
<attila_lendvai>mirai, indeed, stderr should also be included. thanks for pointing me to exec-command!
