niso: because if they're a path, they will be put into the /nix/store
well, there are ways around that, but it's much easier to make that mistake :)
knur has joined #home-manager
Hello there! New home-manager user. I don't really understand how to update all my packages. I did ` nix-channel --update && nixos-rebuild switch` followed buy `home-manager switch`, but I noticed that all packages referenced in my home.nix are still the older versions
For instance, even though the system has firefox 68.0, the one I get through `home-manager` is still 67.0
knur: Did you update root's channel? Cause your system and home-manager may be using different channels.
I did `sudo nix-channel --update` if that's what you mean. Also, just found something interesting: `home-manager packages | grep firefox` says `firefox-68.0.1`
But when I launch firefox it is still pointing to the 67 version :/
