<ldlework> Is there no way to set permissions on files created with `home.file` in home-managers?
<ldlework> I'm not seeing anything here:
<Ke> I know nothing about hm, but traditionally nix places all files in /nix/store world readable form and can not be used to manage secrets
<Ke> my imagination says hm probably just does nix derivation builds and links them to your home
<Ke> not sure, if there is something like environment.etc."filename".source, where you could create a symlink to an arbitrary target

<Jezhehim[m]> yup, that's how hm works: everything in `home.file` is copied to the nix store (where it is read-only) and symlinked into place
<Jezhehim[m]> take a look at `/nix/store/*-home-manager-path` after running `home-manager switch`

<joesventek> I'm currently playing with the HM module of impermanence and kinda got it working. Unfortunately all the bind mounts for persistent directories get stopped by systemd as soon as I do a graphical login.
<joesventek> Any ideas what could cause that?

<siraben> How do I delete all home-manager generations except the latest one?
<__monty__> nix-env --delete-generations +1?
<siraben> __monty__: but those are the nix-env generations, right? not the home-manager ones
<__monty__> HM generations are part of those. It's the system generations that are usually separate.
<dutchie> you could point it at home-manager iwth -p
<dutchie> if it doesn't pick them up properly

<theduke> Hey there. I'm trying install home-manager on a new system with my existing config.
<theduke> And I'm running into problems.
<theduke> The first one: during installation, multiple packages are not found. Those packages are available on unstable, but not on stable.
<theduke> The NixOS setup is on stable, but for my user I added the unstable channel.
<theduke> Do I need to do something to make home-manager use unstable?
<rycee> theduke: Does `nix-instantiate --eval -E '(<nixpkgs>)'` indicate the system nixpkgs or the user one?
<theduke> <rycee "theduke: Does `nix-instantiate -"> Ah, no, for some odd reason it actually shows the root user
<theduke> `/nix/var/nix/profiles/per-user/root/channels/nixos`
<rycee> theduke: Is the channel you added to the user present in `~/.nix-defexpr/channels`?
<rycee> And is `~/.nix-defexpr/channels` present in `echo $NIX_PATH`.
<rycee> Also, avoid Matrix features like replies since this channels is bridged with IRC.
<theduke> Ah, will do.
<theduke> Yes to both. `/home/user/.nix-defexpr/channels` is the first entry in `$NIX_PATH`. And both home-manager and the unstable nixos are in .nix-defexpr.
<theduke> NIX_PATH does say `:nixpkgs=/nix/var/nix/profiles/per-user/root/channels/nixos` though.
<theduke> Ah, that's the same on my other system, so that seems to be normal.
<theduke> Ah, but on the other system the system itself is using unstable, not stable.
<rycee> Right, then that might override the one in `.nix-defexpr/channels`?
<rycee> You could try `NIX_PATH=$NIX_PATH:nixpkgs=/home/user/.nix-defexpr/channels/nixpkgs nix-instantiate --eval -E '(<nixpkgs>)'`
<theduke> clear
<theduke> That didn't help.
<theduke> Mhm, thanks for the advice. I'm kind fo in a hurry so I just switched the whole system to unstable for now. I'll investigate more when I have some time.
<rycee> Then can try `NIX_PATH=nixpkgs=/home/user/.nix-defexpr/channels/nixpkgs:$NIX_PATH nix-instantiate --eval -E '(<nixpkgs>)'`
<rycee> (putting nixpkgs= at the front of NIX_PATH)
<theduke> Will do. Haha I didn't realize how long a full build with things like emacs, vim and VS Code plugins actually takes.
<zmacs> Can I avoid to relogin after nix-shell '<home-manager>' -A install? I'm setting up a CI build and relogin after install is no option.
