Currently trying to install :nixos: #NixOS on a :raspberrypi: #RaspberryPi Zero. The poor thing with its 500MB RAM has a hard time during nixos-rebuild... 🥵

With the new Cloudflare Warp release this month, they finally support ARM on Linux! Haven't seen this announced yet, but tested in parallels on the mac and it seems to work great. 🎉 I've also opened a PR to support this in #nixos

Could anyone on #NixOS with #XFCE (or something else known to work with compiz) please test this and tell me if you also get a black screen when doing compiz --replace or if it’s just VirtualBox’s fault?

#NixOS update after sleeping for one month on host floyd (lenovo x260) takes 1 hour and 15 minutes (despite new 2TB SSD). During that, the device is almost non-responsive for anything else.
Host jackson (with even a slightly larger setup) probably would need 5-10 minutes maximum (lenovo t490). (I do weekly updates there.)

It was very easy to do having already made an :archlinux: #ArchLinux PKGBUILD.

Hello, #NixOS and #Nix pros!
Could you help me please?
Why does my nixos-rebuild switch fail? It fails on the very end, after all the building and evaluating is done, when starting suid-sgid-wrappers.service.
HOWEVER, here’s the weird part: build-vm works!! The vm boots and everything! If the vm works, why does switch fail?
Any tips?
My config (alongside with a file showing the error) is available here: github.com/LuNeder/nixos-confi
Edit: an important note is that if I comment the uutils part out the rebuild works, but I want to keep uutils!
Edit2: Those are bugs on uutils! Btw: folks on uutils discord are awesome and super cool they helped me a lot in troubleshooting this and were able to reproduce it!

What in the actual heck is going on with chrooting into a mounted :raspberrypi: #RaspberryPiOS SD card rootfs on :nixos: #NixOS?
SOLVED: One also needs to bind-mount /nix in the target system:
> sudo mkdir /mnt/nix; sudo mount -o bind /nix /mnt/nix

tmux screenshot with multiple panes, showing that /mnt has a fs mounted and the virtual trees bind-mounted, that chrooting into it doesn't work with weird 'no such file or directory' errors, showing a NixOS config with emulatedSystems set to raspberry pi compatible arm, and other stuff

Adventures in #NixOS rabbit hole continue
- Wanted to run GNOME 46
- Didn't want to build the world locally
- Bought a beefy x86 server and made it build staging-next branch
- Spun up Attic (docs.attic.rs/

Screenshot of a notification from the screenshot tool (so meta, I know) that shows an oversized icon of the screenshot app at the top left that looks out of place. In that same line, there is also the text "Screenshot" and "Just now" without a space separating them, making it "ScreenshotJust now" instead. Overall high quality stuff.

Can one pre-build a buildFHSUserEnv in configuration.nix and then have a command like 'fhs' that yanks you into a shell with all your environment.systemPackages in an FHS layout?

Updated my bio to reflect my switch from #openSUSE #Tumbleweed :opensuse: to #NixOS :nix:
I still love openSUSE, but effortless migration/reinstallation was a big interest for me and I’ve been looking into NixOS for a while due to that.
This week I was finally able to overcome my anger and will to give up and installed it on my main machine after configuring for a little while on a vm. It was really stressful, specially due to the fact that #Nix documentation is awful in most cases or often straight up nonexistent :omya_nix:, but as of today I have a working and usable desktop again. There’s still tweaking to be done, and also new stuff to do taking advantage of nix features, but the main part is now done
Note that I love openSUSE dearly, and shall they ever make a declarative distribution nix-like (preferably nix-compatible) there’s great probability that I’d migrate to it if it was good and had the features I needed (I don’t think that’s impossible, since they do like making new or experimental distros)
