How does one use home-manager on unstable and the system configuration on stable. Am I suppose to set home-manager.users.<name>.nixpkgs to unstable based on 1.2 of the manual?
I am pinning home-manager as a NixOS module btw

maralorn: About the bus service. If you are on NixOS with a default dbus-setup (i.e., not socket activated) then you can try it and see how it goes. NixOS is having some issues with its default user session dbus setup so I'm always a bit weary about changing anything related to dbus that seem to work at the moment.
But if it works I'd be happy to accept a change to a dbus type service.
colemickens: Sure, if there are nice changes in the nixpkgs version of these modules it would be good to port them
mmchen: You could try setting `home-manager.users.<name>._module.args.pkgs` to the unstable nixpkgs. Note that this will override the `nixpkgs` module and if you are defining overlays or configurations there they will be ignored.
