>>93672302>untruetrue>that's a featuremissing something isn't a feature. even nix works on other operating systems. but nix is also shit and has the same outdated packages. guix and nix both have no point. just use docker and ansible just like everyone already does.
GNU GUIX & Plan9 linked up! need it or keep it??!

Packaging stuff for it is actually kinda fun. I've built a few so far and I'm planning to submit them. There's one I haven't managed to build with every library enabled yet.

>>93672168>unreal amount of outdated packagesIsn't it source based though?
>>93679897nope>>93679868yes, docker is great, i'm glad we agree. you can't even understand it, you don't know how to use it, you don't know how to deploy at scale, you don't even know what kubernetes is. you're a fucking smoothbrain LOL
>>93679897>>93679947It is source based but since packages are guaranteed to be 100% reproducible they can ship prebuilt binary substitutes, so you only have to compile yourself if you modify the package in some way (building against different libraries, etc.).
>93680911 Not true, you can not only download binaries but also use package transforms to customize each package however you like.Parameterized packages (Guix's version of Gentoo's USE flags) are also coming soon

>>93686474if guix or nix were any good no one would need to shill it day in and day out, hour after hour day after day week after week month after month. but they do. they CANNOT stop shilling this piece of garbage guix and nix shit. it's a very small group of super autistic homosexual sex pest diddlers peddling this broken freetard trash
>>93671291>cuck licenseno thanks
I'm running it in a VM right now and am confused. If i'm on the full distro version, what happens if I set GUIX_PROFILE? The guide keeps telling me not to do it, or that the package manager should only tell you about it if you're not on the distro, but it nags me about it every time I do things. I currently have it set, but what are the consequences of that? Instructions unclear.
