<mekeor>nckx: i prefer bots that only talk when explicitely asked to do so. even if it shall deliver URL-details without being asked, it could at least avoid mentioning the link again
<nckx>futurile: Not looping as in circular, but a few propagated-inputs can ossify a profile so almost everything has to be updated in lockstep. Sometimes there's no other reasonable way to make things work. Often there is.
<nckx>mekeor: Yeah, not echoing the links seems like an easy fix. It doesn't check whether the original message already contained it.
<KE0VVT>Where can I look at others' Guix Home configurations?
<voroskoi>adding (udev-rules-service 'light light) to my services does not append the udev rules
<Lumine>What worked was creating a new profile in icecat
<tux1c>has anybody successfully built guix for 32bit raspberry boards?
<tux1c>i'm using the raspberry-pi-64.tmpl and adjusting it for arm-linux-gnueabihf, and gawk fails on the test phase, i wonder if anybody has had any similar experiences..
<voroskoi>after installing git:send-email i still get "git: 'send-email' is not a git command" error
<lizog>hello guix, i was trying to cross compile a system image for aarch64 on a x86_64 machine, but when trying to build gawk-mesboot it fails. i noticed on guix-patches someone asked about the same question several days ago but got no reply: https://issues.guix.gnu.org/66866
<bonmlp>Do I have to write a whole config.scm from scratch?
<voroskoi>bonmlp: the config for the current system is /run/current-system/configuraion
<voroskoi>you can edit that file, put it anywhere (it is a good thing to keep it version controlled)
<voroskoi>and sudo guix system reconfigure my-config.scm to reconfigure the whole system
<bonmlp>voroskoi: I copied that file to /etc/config.scm and ran guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm but it errors out while looking for a channel from a git repo under /home/ludo which doesn't exist.
<bonmlp>Actually, should I do that reconfig as root or as an unprivileged user?
<voroskoi>if you forgot sudo it will report symlinking issues, so you need root, but Your problem is something else
<voroskoi>paste the config.scm somewhere, so I can take a look
<tux1c>lizog: i have the exact same issue with 32bit arm system configuration, gawk-mesboot fails on the configuration stage :/
<nckx>voroskoi: Did you install git:send-email into the same profile as git? That's a requirement. While you can 'stack' different profiles (e.g., your system profile bleeds through your user profile), packages in different profiles don't 'interact' as closely.
<gcarlos8>Hi guys, how can I install a 32-bit package on a x86_64 system?
<gcarlos8>nckx: what's the diff of --system and --target?
<nckx>gcarlos8: --target=i686-linux-gnu cross-compiles: it uses an x86-64 'cross' GCC to build an i686 binary. --system=i686-linux (note the slightly different argument) actually uses an i686 GCC to build an i686 binary.
<nckx>Cross-compiling is often more of an adventure.
<nckx>Sometimes you want adventure, or you need it. Sometimes you don't.
<nckx>(Also, many things don't support cross-compilation 'yet'.)
<ieure>Is there some way to tell the guix command to output plain text? My $TERM is set to "dumb", but `guix describe` / `guix system describe` have a bunch of escape sequences in the output, so it looks like trash.
<ieure>Guest89, No. You probably need to mount /dev/sdg1
<ieure>/dev/sdg is the file representing the whole device, you usually have a partition table with a partition containing the filesystem. That should be /dev/sdg1 (but might be something different, depending on the way the drive is partitioned.)
<Guest89>ieure you are right. It works now . Thank you
