Jan Nieuwenhuizen - Sept. 9, 2016, 9:09 p.m.
Hi!

I wanted to play with Hydra and found it did not build and so did not
some of its dependencies.

Our nix package got updated which broke the hydra build.  First I
downgraded nix to 1.8.  That worked, eventually.  We decided on #guix
that we'd rather upgrade than downgrade.

So I upgraded hydra to latest git and did not get past build problems.
The Hydra git does not mention anything on dependencies or versions.  I
asked on #guix and later on #nixos.

Finally I found this comment from last February

    https://github.com/NixOS/hydra/issues/270

    "You have to use NixUnstable or go a few Hydra commits back."

So after a couple of iterations in the Hydra git I settled on a commit
from 20151030 (just after a compile fix that I ran into).

Two perl packages did not build anymore (failing tests), so I disabled
the tests.  Hydra also has two new dependencies, which I added.

Greetings,
Jan

Neat.

I should mention that I didn’t maintain the Guile part in Hydra (which
is really just the ‘hydra-eval-guile-jobs.in’ script), so the latest
Hydra won’t work with Guix.  :-/

I think it’s “just a matter” of updating this script to produce JSON
instead of XML, but that has to be done (and I thought it’d be more
fruitful to invest in Cuirass).

ISTR that other changes were made that tie Hydra to Nix more closely,
and I’m not sure what the implications are.

Woow, congrats on getting this far!

Could you split it into separate packages: one for each new package, one
for each individual package change?

Thank you!

Ah..I was wondering about nix and how it all worked together.  That makes
more sense now.

Sure.  I didn't upgrade hydra to latest git, as that depends on an unreleased
version of nix also; did not want to go there.

I understand.  I struggled quite a while reading doc/dev-notes.txt and getting
sqlite up and running, fixing database errors until I finaly found that file
is terribly out of date and in 2014 sqlite support was dropped, apparently.

:-)

I need a sensible ci server that works with guix, and from the outside it
looks like hydra is pretty good.

Done.

Find the script below that I used to test hydra with postgres.

Jan
