Hi Marius,

Marius Bakke <address@hidden> skribis:

> * gnu/packages/admin.scm (wpa-supplicant)[inputs]: Add QTBASE and QTSVG.
> [native-inputs]: Add IMAGEMAGICK and INKSCAPE.
> [outputs]: New field.
> [arguments]: Add phases 'build-wpa-gui' and 'install-wpa-gui'.

The patch LGTM, but I wonder if we should make it a separate package.

Since it uses a separate output, that should be fine *if* you get
substitutes.  If you don’t, then you end up building Qt.

Since wpa_supplicant is a requirement for most GuixSD configs, that
could be an issue.

>From the patch, it seems that the GUI is well isolated, in a separate
directory, with a different build system and all.  Do you think it would
work to make a separate “wpa-supplicant-gui” package?  WDYT?
