[05:14:23]<rekado->mark_weaver: hmm, all three conditions are, in fact, met (plus the recommendation of adding wicd to the system packages). I'll have to investigate this at some point.

[05:18:09]<rekado->when executing "wicd-gtk" as a user I get "Could not connect to wicd's D-Bus interface. Check the wicd log for error messages".
[05:18:21]<rekado->the user is a member of the "netdev" group.
[05:18:56]<rekado->the wicd log at /var/log/wicd/wicd.log only contains one line: "2015/08/28 18:49:41 ::"

[11:41:46]<civodul>rekado-, iyzsong: actually you need a rebuild
[11:41:50]<civodul>of the .go files
[11:42:02]<civodul>will send a message on that
[11:42:14]<iyzsong>civodul: ah, ok
[11:43:49]<rekado->civodul: ah, good to know. I'll retry.
[11:49:56]<civodul>alezost: i don't know about you, but i miss Magit's old "rewrite" mode
[12:01:40]<rekado->I use interactive rebase now instead of rewrite.
[12:01:52]<rekado->i.e. "r e" instead of "E ..."
[12:18:25]<alezost>what is old "rewrite"
[12:18:26]<alezost>?
[12:26:03]<civodul>you would do "r b" for "rewrite begin", and then it would display the list of pending commits, and you could apply them, commit them, etc. in the order you want
[12:26:20]<civodul>the new thing pops up a git buffer with 50 lines of comments
[12:26:23]<civodul>not very helpful IMO
[12:28:47]* ztennix has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[12:29:02]<alezost>I never used that thing so I don't miss it :-)
[12:29:09]<alezost>but I use interactive rebase all the time

[12:38:51]* Nexus has joined #guix
[12:44:32]<karhunkynsi>quick note on guixsd: when i boot up to console, i have to press Enter after a while to get the login prompt
[12:45:31]<karhunkynsi>before that it's just waiting after printing: "[ 6.80154] random: nonblocking pool is initialized"
[12:51:53]* tschwing_ has quit (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[12:51:59]* tschwing_ has joined #guix
[12:52:57]<davexunit>karhunkynsi: that's jut because the syslog *and* the tty are writing to the same place on tty1
[12:55:41]<karhunkynsi>can it be fixed? It doesn't bother me but it would obviously be preferable if it got to the login prompt on its own
[12:56:02]* ztennix has joined #guix
[12:56:57]<DusXMT>karhunkynsi: the problem is, the login promt is already there, it's just that more text gets added over it by syslog
[13:00:26]<karhunkynsi>ok, well i thought i'd just mention it
[13:06:14]<davexunit>perhaps we could have syslog output somewhere else, I don't really know much about this.
[13:11:52]<davexunit>oh boy, I've encountered an interesting GPL situation. Maybe someone here can sort it out.
[13:13:02]<davexunit>I found a library that is only licensed under the GPL 2, and it is used as a dependency *only* for running the test suite for a library that is dual-licensed under the GPL2 and the Ruby license
[13:13:56]<davexunit>there exists a third library that uses the second that is expat licensed.
[13:14:41]<davexunit>this GPL library is not at all required for things to work, and in fact most users do not ever download it because it's only a "development" dependency.
[13:14:49]<davexunit>has the GPL been violated?
[13:19:46]<efraim>#fsf? #gnu? i have no idea
[13:20:59]<davexunit>I'll probably have to write to licensing@fsf.org
[13:21:18]<davexunit>ACTION packaged activesupport
[13:21:31]<davexunit>one more step towards having Rails 4.
[13:23:34]<civodul>hey, davexunit

[14:09:59]* davi has joined #guix
[14:15:26]<efraim>I'm using some other packages as references while building tilda, I'm not understanding why I'd use pkg-config as an input and not a native-input
[14:18:57]<efraim>and i just tried apt-get build-dep -s tilda, and the list is 75 packages
[14:19:20]<efraim>i no longer feel bad about my growing list in native-inputs
[14:21:08]<efraim>build-deps pulls in libwayland-dev and libx11-dev

[15:01:44]<efraim>ran into problems with vte, vte-0.40.0 provides vte-2.91 and I need at least vte-2.90, so I may need to do that later with passing flags to configure to tell it that it does have it
[15:04:30]* civodul has joined #guix
[15:10:39]<civodul>efraim: re pkg-config, it's a "native input" because of the way it's used when cross-compiling
[15:11:13]<efraim>civodul: i'll see if i can find that package again that uses pkg-config as an input
[15:11:34]<civodul>ok
[15:11:43]<civodul>note that when not cross-compiling there's no difference
