@dctrud Personally when I use similar hardware I update only when binary substitutes are ready, or keep my system profile slim and put some difficult to compile programs (I’m lookin’ at you Qt) in a separate profile and update them rarely. When I need something ad‑hoc and a substitute is not ready I install it from an older guix revision.
A good strategy is to pull a commit from a few days ago. That's usually enough to get substitutes
@roptat that’d work, but I’m not sure it’s a good strategy given presence of security issues.
Well, either you wait a few days for substitutes, or a few days for the builds to finish on your laptop…
@roptat yeah. It’s manageable for me. I just wouldn’t want to attempt it on something that much slower.
