<rekado>I increased it to 4G and it’s building packages without problems now.
<Natris1979>Hi all, is it possible to use guix from within a chroot'd environment? I'm currently running a chroot'd debian environment from inside an archlinux host. I installed guix, and when I try to run `guix install whatever` I get an error trying a access /var/guix/daemon-socket/socket which doesn't exist
<Natris1979>I think it's because systemd isn't running inside the chroot'd environment
<gorilla>Would it be idiomatic in Guix to create a package for a custom Nginx configuration? That is, a package that just contains the config files specific to some desired setup?
<gorilla>Then use guix deploy to push that config onto multiple identical hosts?
<gorilla>So that you could update and manage your Nginx version with one package, and your configuration version with a different package?
<doriru>i'm gonna repost my question from earlier yesterday. hope it's alright
<doriru>i'm having trouble during installation of guix system. i've tried asking about it before and was told it's a problem with 1.4.0, but the latest build isn't available for download. is there anything i can do to successfully install it?
<doriru>i used graphical installation, so i didn't get to do any command prompts after the error, only either starting the building from the start or going back to configuration. restarting the building resulted in the same error
<doriru>didn't want to wast time, but i'll do manual tomorrow and hope it works
<podiki>you can switch to a console and run the command it shows at the end to manually redo it i believe
<podiki>or yeah, do the graphical as much as you want and can always switch to a tty to run any commands (manual install isn't hard either really, when i do i tend to spend time on the non guix things, like deciding partitions)
<doriru>i tried pressing ctrl+f1 or f3. don't remember the combination now, but it didn't seem to work after certain point of installation proccess
<podiki>you can see the command at the end of your image: "guix system init --fallback /mnt/etc/config.scm /mnt"
<podiki>should always be able to switch, i forget which has the manual and which are shells
<podiki>if you have another machine with guix (system or package manager) you can actually do it all from there if you pop out the drive you want to install to
<doriru>i'll try it then. thanks for the tips! very helpful
<podiki>welcome! that's what i did most recently, just partitioned the drive and then ran guix system init with a configuration (that i was testing in a vm first) to a partition (of course make sure you have the right boot partition)
<apteryx>I've got a bash-static failure on core-updates; is it only me?
<apteryx>triggered by trying to build just 'bash-minimal'
<futurile>civodul: did you see my email to the guix-blog alias - with updated notes and a blog post to publish?
<futurile>civodul: I don't know who's behind that alias so not sure if you are on it or not?
<futurile>civodul: oh I see you did - 'opens mailbox'
<civodul>futurile: i’m on it! it’s currently 5 people
<civodul>maybe we should just use guix-patches though, for more transparency
<futurile>I'll just correct the items you and zimoun suggested and send a new version. I get where the 'don't use gender' is coming from - I struggle with it because I'm old and it breaks the rules I was taught heh - so I'll just re-use the name (which breaks a different rule in English writing about repetition but oh well!)
<PotentialUser-72>Hello. Here is a quick noob question: following the Guix manual (on Guix 1.4 VM image), it is mentioned that the command "sudo guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm" would upgrade the system. However, I have no /etc/config.scm file. Should it exist?
<apteryx>I think it'd exist if you had installed Guix System with its installed, but it's possible it doesn't in the VM
<PotentialUser-72>One more question, if I may: When I call "guix package --list-generations", I get a list of 4 items, that I believe to be related to my user's profile. It says I am at the 4th.
<PotentialUser-72>When I call "guix system list-generations" I get only one generation, which I assume to be because I have no system update yet.
<PotentialUser-72>But when I call "guix describe", it says "Generation 2". The help for the command talks about "information about the channels", but I am confused about what is being tracked through these generations. Is it related to the "guix pull" calls I made?
<ieure>PotentialUser-72, Every time you `guix pull', that should create a new generation of your profile. System generations happen when you `sudo guix system reconfigure -- since you have no system config, you won't see new generations of that.
<ieure>Actually, maybe I don't know how this works.
<apteryx>so there's the main pkg-config, then there's an ad-hoc pkg-config for gnu-make-final (in (gnu packages commencement)), then there's another pkg-config used by email@example.com (I presume guile-final)
<doriru>can't build python-afdko during system installation for some reason
<ulfvonbe`>do we have any dbus wizards around? What magic incantation do I need in order to run cdemu-daemon from an ssh session?
<ulfvonbe`>'sudo -E cdemu-daemon' fails with 'cdemu: Daemon: D-Bus: failed to get proxy for 'org.freedesktop.DBus' on session bus: The connection is closed!'
