LnL: I think RosaCtrl could help you with the errors and documentation around the installation issue, she was offering to write a guide on how to do it as-is today, and I thought maybe she could skip a lot of that and start from where you are now
that would be great!
I though it would be nice to have a guide detailing the different ways to install Nix manually on Catalina
My knowledge on the issue though is limited to what was explained in the GitHub issue. I don't know if there are other ways to do it
Is it not just
1. create apfs volume, vim /etc/synthetic.conf and then vifs the apfs uuid?
From top of my head I remember two ways: one using an encrypted volume and another using a symlink. Both have shortcomings. I remember a third one that allowed to decrypt the volume before the user logs in
if you're adversed to docbook, I'm happy to build an updated version of those and do the translation of the edits
Nah, I can do it. I'll read the log of the channel. The PR looks like what I have in mind
thank you a lot RosaCtrl, LnL :D
I'll look at this during the weekend. I'm still on my working hours here 😅

RosaCtrl LnL I've picked at part of this a little this week, but it's been a busy week and I haven't had many spare neurons to rub together; I'll try to make sure I've got mine at least posted/shared somewhere even if I don't think it's complete
I've mostly been trying to focus on proposing a golden path (though I've also done some reorg and line edits elsewhere)--so there might not be much direct overlap between my edits and a broader guide
