<clever> cbarrett: i cant see any reason you cant use it
<cbarrett> Thx. I wish I could use NixOps but it appears to from the docs use some hacky workaround for bootstrapping on DO
<clever> cbarrett: ive made my own framework for that, justdoit + kexec
<clever> cbarrett: you basically build a special tarball, upload it to any linux machine, unpack it, execute 1 file, and the machine is now running nixos from a ramdisk
<clever> then just ssh back in, execute a second command, and it now has nixos instaled
<cbarrett> That sounds awesome. But that's not what I want
<clever> i do have plans to add it to nixops in the future
<clever> cbarrett: what is your goal?
<cbarrett> I stated it plainly. never mind. I'm going to work alone
<clever> kk
<disasm> lol, I just added nginx-vts exporter for prometheus, was getting ready to push and was going through docs for the vts module and it has a prometheus formatter already!!!

<ottidmes> what would be the easiest way to overwrite a single binary of another package? I want to wrap it with a script and change its argument list before passing it to the wrapped binary. I am thinking maybe buildEnv with a higher prio of my wrapper, not sure if that is otherwise the same as the original package

<schneid3306> I am interested in trying nixos and have been doing some research. I may be missing something obvious, but how do I go about executing existing scripts that i use on other operating systems? for example, I have a python script i use to take notes. If my understanding is correct, the shebang will not be able to be interpreted on nixos. Can anyone elaborate or point me in the right direction here?
<jackdk> I think you may have some luck with a /usr/bin/env python shebang. software in nixpkgs gets its shebangs patched with exact interpreter paths in the nix store
<slabity> schneid3306: If the script properly uses `#!/usr/bin/env`, it should work fine
<clever> schneid3306: if you use `#!/usr/bin/env python` and happen to have python already installed, it can work, but its often better to package the script properly
<slabity> I believe POSIX only defines `#!/bin/sh` and `#!/usr/bin/env` anyways

<gchristensen> a major downside to the current way I have the set up is the current contextual text around what I am saying is absent. this means that the language model is not able to actually work at its full capacity. this is of course not a problem on Windows, what is a problem on Linux because of the way the forwarding works. to be honest I imagine no CLI program will ever really be great, unless it integrated with

<clever> rydnr: looks entirely normal, which derivation are you having trouble with?
<clever> sevanspowell: the nix sandbox doesnt allow it access to the docker socket
<rydnr> clever: this one, after converting it into a function: https://github.com/lukego/studio/blob/vm-upgrade/backend/Moz2D/default.nix
<sevanspowell> clever: So if, on NixOS, I change my configuration.nix to `useSandbox = false;` it should work?
<clever> sevanspowell: its still running as the nixbld1 user, which lacks access to the socket, its better to rewrite such tests to not depend on docker
<sevanspowell> clever: Alright, thanks for the help. I had already tried `useSandbox = false;` to no avail.
<sevanspowell> clever: :)
<clever> rydnr: can you pastebin the output of `nix-diff` and also `nix show-derivation`?

<clever> rydnr: and how did you load the file from that last link?
<ar1a> is there a way to get emacs to build from HEAD? there was a patch 2 days ago i need to get up to
<rydnr> clever: I'm not sure I understand you. I just added " Moz2D = callPackage ../development/libraries/moz2d { };" to my branch's all-packages.nix
<clever> rydnr: sounds like everything should just work, how is nixos-rebuild loading that copy of nixpkgs?, what args was nixos-rebuild called with?
<rydnr> clever: nixos-rebuild -I nixpkgs=[path-to-my-nixpkgs] switch
<clever> rydnr: and then you just have moz2d in your systemPackages somewhere?
<rydnr> clever: I use it as a dependency in a package "pharo"
<clever> rydnr: can you pastebin that pharo nix expression as well, and the `nix show-derivation` of its .drv file?
<clever> rydnr: that forces everything to do a 32bit build
<rydnr> clever: Is it because of the pkgsi686Linux parameter?
<clever> and moz2d has a 64bit arch hard-coded into it
<clever> rydnr: yeah, pkgsi686Linux is the 32bit version of nixpkgs
<rydnr> clever: thank you very much, and sorry for wasting your time.

<rydnr> clever: One last question. How should you recommend me to refactor that, and still be able to build the 32b version of the pharo-vm?
<rydnr> clever: How do you... sorry
<clever> rydnr: you need to get moz2d from the other pkgs set, or modify moz2d to properly set the right arch when building
<clever> pkgs.Moz2D instead of letting pkgsi686Linux.callPackage load the 32bit one

<malice`> Hey all! Trying to install Nix and failing. I can't get both networking and GUI to be working, but I'd like to start with GUI... The problem is simple - I can't start the display manager.
<malice`> So I've looked online and found that nvidia driver is not loaded. (otherwise, running display manager tries to run X 3 times (and I see a black screen blinking 3 times in the process, after which it fails)
<malice`> Unfortunately this makes things even worse. After running nouveau and starting a display manager my whole PC freezes after 20 seconds or so
<malice`> It looks like nouveau crashes (I can see some backtrace in `journalctl -f` in other tty), I also get message about CPU stalls and I've seen kernel panic as well
<malice`> My GPU is Nvidia GP106
PeterHK has quit [Ping timeout: 256 seconds]
<malice`> Is this a known problem with nouveau?
zupo has joined #nixos
<clefru> malice`: I'd try to blacklist/disable X and then try new kernels/configurations with "nixos-rebuild test" so that when your machine freezes you get back to a good state
<clefru> malice`: I'd probably try upgrading to nixos-unstable, which is out in a few weeks anyway
<malice`> clefru: hey, thanks for responding!
<malice`> No idea what you're saying though. How do I do that during installation?
<malice`> And why disabling X would help?
<clefru> malice`: Just don't enable an xserver when installing, that is don't have "services.xserver.enable = true" in your config
<clefru> malice`: you want a stable system first before playing around with it
<clefru> the installer is usually too limited for good experimentation. you might also try the vesa driver btw
thc202 has joined #nixos
<malice`> clefru: I see. I understand that the installation media boots itself into nix OS, so I will just ask to make things crystal clear... we're talking about switching the installation media OS into unstable, right?
<malice`> and not the OS that is installed using this installation media?
<clefru> malice`: no don't do that. just do a regular installation with what you have and disable the xserver (as there is no guarantee that in nixos-unstable you won't have the same problem)
<clefru> malice`: to disable the xserver you need to edit /mnt/etc/nixos/configuration.nix and find and change the xserver line here
<malice`> Okay... So I guess that I will have no GUI during installation.
<clefru> malice`: that's during installation. if you have it already up and running then your config is at /etc/nixos/configuration.nix
<malice`> I never succeeded to install Nix.
<clefru> oh hold on, the installer has a GUI? I am sorry. I didn't know that. I thought that you talked about having a broken installation
<malice`> I started an hour ago but I run into this problem when trying to start
<clefru> malice`: ah sorry my bad.
<malice`> Yeah, I thought we might had a misunderstanding there :)
<clefru> malice`: I haven't installed nixos in a long while it seems :)
<malice`> :)
<clefru> malice`: ok maybe try the nixos-unstable ISOs then.. should there be anyu
<malice`> just the "normal" ones.
<malice`> That's fine, I can do without the GUI. Let's get to the second question.
<malice`> How do I connect to wifi during installation?
<clefru> https://nixos.org/nixos/download.html <- lists a minimal installation CD. try that
<malice`> I couldn't run wpa_supplicant. I guessed (correctly) that it was due to the network-manager running, so I stopped it. I succeeded, but I don't have dhcp server running anymore. How do I start one? dhcpcd wasn't working.
<malice`> Sorry if I'm asking stupid or wrong questions but I'm coming from Gentoo and am used to a bit different set of things I guess

<Alling> Hello everybody! I'm trying to install Manticore, for which SML is needed. Specifically 110.81, not 110.79 which is in nixpkgs.
rycwo has joined #nixos
<Alling> Installing 110.79 works like a charm, but since I need 110.81, I copied the expression from that file and changed version to "110.81".
<symphorien> you must also change the hash
<Alling> So I did let smlnj_110_81 = ... in ... in a shell.nix. However, it ways that "smlnj-110.81 is not supported on ‘x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu’, refusing to evaluate".
<Alling> says*
<Alling> It also suggests some workarounds, but I'm just wondering why I'm getting the message. How does it know?
<andi-> Alling: meta.platforms is only darwin + i686 on that package
<andi-> you might want to give it a try building it on x86_64-linux (by adding that to the list)
<Alling> andi-: How come I didn't get that error (or did I?) when I installed 110.79?
<andi-> Alling: well you didnt since it transparently switched to the i686 compiler chain (stdenv etc..)
<andi-> in pkgs/top-level.nix there is a `pkgsi686Linux.callPackage` being used instead of the "standard" `callPackage`. Since amd64 is usually able to execute i686 code that was used (transparently?) there.
<Alling> How come the same mechanism doesn't kick in when I'm defining an almost identical package in a shell.nix?
<andi-> because you are using the normal stdenv (which is the native/amd64 one)?
<andi-> thats the relevant part. Alling can you post your shell.nix and then I can point you in the right direction.

<Alling> I didn't quite understand how to use pkgsi686Linux.callPackage in my context from your linked example.
<andi-> substitude `stdenv` with `pkgsi686Linux.stdenv` in line 36 and it might work :)
<Alling> andi-: Woah! It's building now. :D Let's see if it works.
<andi-> Alling: you can also try to add `x86_64-linux` to meta.platforms and using the "normal" `stdenv` again. Maybe upstream is now compatible with that.. (personally never used/heard of that package before)
<Alling> andi-: I did that first; the build failed with an error about 32-bit libraries etc.
<Alling> It actually built now!
<therealwaphire[m> Guys, is it possible to use refind as the default bootloader instead of grub or systemd - boot? Last I checked there weren't any derivations for refind
<Alling> However, when I run sml, I still have version 110.79, so I guess this is where I should listen to symphorien :)

<infinisil> therealwaphire[m: i don't know of a way, do you have trouble with grub?
<therealwaphire[m> Nah
<therealwaphire[m> It's just that rEFInd has been my goto. So I wondered if there was a way to use it.
<Alling> andi-: symphorien At this point I know what to do, but it's quite laborious: Manually change the hashes of every single one of the ~25 sources so as to provoke an error, then copy the correct hash into my Nix expression. Is there a quicker way?
<andi-> nah
<andi-> that sounds about right
<symphorien> look in the same folder if there is a script to generate these
<andi-> unless you want to nix-prefix-url them
<andi-> s/prefix/prefetch/
reallymemorable has joined #nixos
<Alling> andi-: "prefix" does not occur anywhere in this expression.
<andi-> Alling: I meant you can also use the tool `nix-prefetch-url` to obtain the hash for the url without attempting a build.
<Alling> andi-: Aha, of course, ye olde s/a/b in IRC. :D
<andi-> ;)
<Alling> andi-: symphorien Then I can probably script it! :)
<andi-> good luck!

<Alling> By the way, since Manticore has a few scripts with #!/bin/bash, can I, like, symlink /bin/bash to /usr/bin/env bash or something in shell.nix?
<ottidmes> if I want to keep one package as it was before applying my overlay (otherwise I would get infinite recursion), what are my options? The most obvious solution is to just import pkg.path again without the overlay, but I was thinking, would it not be better to use something like callPackageWith (tried that just now, but still get infinite recursion).

sphalerite has quit [Ping timeout: 268 seconds]
<viric> ottidmes: meh. I have a nar from stdin
<viric> /dev/stdin maybe
<viric> no. all bad. And ls-nar expects an argument besides the nar.
<ottidmes> or use: nix cat-nar <(your command)
<viric> ottidmes: will that create the file on disk?
<ottidmes> in bash, I believe: nix ls-nar <(your command) should then work
<viric> ah it creates a named pipe.
<viric> I think it won't work because it fails with /dev/stdin too.
<ij> Did syncthing get a downgrade on master? I installed a syncthing, set it up, but now I can't start it, because the version's too young.
<symphorien> you can use =(command) instead of <(command)
<symphorien> it creates an intermediary file
<viric> no no, I can't afford a file on disk with that
<ij> that's zsh-only or…?
<viric> I'm surprised - aren't people using compressed nar all the time?

<Alling> Hm. What would be the most NixOS way to make #!/bin/bash scripts run without having to edit them?
<Taneb> https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/commit/a7c774300b7eab779afb9a81b3f02f3bed69c943 this commit seems to have broken the build of GHCJS
<ottidmes> Alling: calling them explicitly with #{pkgs.bash}/bin/bash, so the shebang does not matter
eadwu has joined #nixos
<woffs> #!${pkgs.bash}/bin/bash
<Alling> ottidmes: I don't understand what you mean by that.
o1lo01ol1o has joined #nixos
<ottidmes> Alling: you are saying, you cannot touch the script at all, right? so patching the shebang or something similar is not an option? then rather than executing the script, you can execute bash, by passing it the script as the first argument
<ottidmes> Alling: or you could wrap your script in yet another script that does this for you
<Alling> Well, I can edit the scripts in this case, but it would be convenient to just have all such scripts work on my system, since people tend to use #!/bin/bash because they don't use NixOS.
<Alling> ottidmes: Thing is, in this case I don't run the scripts manually; I run make etc which in turn call the scripts in question.
<ottidmes> Alling: I just use patchShebangs to fix the shebangs before running them
<Alling> I'm actually quite surprised at the fact that NixOS doesn't symlink /bin/bash.

<Alling> OK, I must say using patchShebangs like that is fairly simple after all.
<goibhniu> Alling: you can also add a symlink for /bin/bash
<Alling> goibhniu: Yeah, do you know why that's not the default, or even a NixOS option?
<goibhniu> Hrm, I can't remember why /bin has `sh` in it at all
<symphorien> It is required by POSIX
<ottidmes> anybody have any better ideas to fix the following: I have a custom fetchurl that uses cacert, but cacert uses fetchurl (and other dependencies that use fetchurl), so I cannot use cacert to customize fetchurl, since that loops. What I really want is to take cacert as it was before customizing fetchurl, and use that cacert to customize fetchurl. I tried `cacert = callPackageWith super (super.path +
<ottidmes> /pkgs/data/misc/cacert) { };` and `cacert = super.cacert.override { inherit (super) stdenv fetchurl nss python; };`, but only `cacert = (import super.path { overlays = []; }).cacert;` worked so far
<goibhniu> ah, thanks
<symphorien> system() invokes /bin/sh
<ottidmes> /bin/sh and /usr/bin/env are the only ones required by POSIX AFAIK
<symphorien> ottidmes: there is fetchurlBoot iirc
<ottidmes> symphorien: how does that help me here? if cacert was just a single call to fetchurl, then I could have rewritten it to use fetchurlBoot, but its not, it uses python and and others, that in turn would also need to be rewritten which is not really going to work
<symphorien> Ah I see
<symphorien> Alling: in any case, /bin/bash would not be available in the sandbox

<Alling> symphorien: ottidmes What do you mean by "sandbox"? The shell I get when I run nix-shell?
<symphorien> no with nix-build
<Alling> symphorien: Hm, I have never used nix-build.
<ottidmes> Alling: you do when you use nixos-rebuild though (assuming you are on NixOS)
<ottidmes> gchristensen: any idea about the comment here https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/blob/master/pkgs/build-support/fetchsvnssh/builder.sh, it has only one ancient commit, and I don't see it do what it describes in the comment (when does it write this 'p' character)
<Alling> I don't think I get the implication of /bin/bash not being "available in the sandbox" though. I was just looking for "the" way to run #!/bin/bash scripts painlessly on NixOS. From what I've heard here, the answer seems to be patchShebangs.
<Alling> Maybe I could symlink /bin/bash, but it doesn't feel very "nixy" since it's not a NixOS option.

<ottidmes> fetchcvs, fetchegg (uses cvs too), and fetchfossil don't even support HTTPS from what it seems (fetchfossil at least doesn't), so they will be unsafe regardless
<Alling> ottidmes: So if I'm following you, even if I symlink /bin/bash, #!/bin/bash wouldn't work in nix(os-re|-)build?
<ottidmes> still have question marks at fetchmtn (no clue) and fetchs3 (probably safe, just not sure)
o1lo01ol1o has quit [Ping timeout: 272 seconds]

<gchristensen> the latest commit is not the same as the current channel
<ottidmes> ij: check this readme: https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs-channels
<gchristensen> the current built release-18.09 is 9bd45dddf8171e2fd4288d684f4f70a2025ded19
<ij> ah, I guess I'd always been lucky
<ij> cause it worked other times
<ij> makes sense though… in hindsight
<ij> so nixpkgs-channels is just another remote for nixpkgs, whose branches are the build versions?

<ottidmes> samrose: "package set" is not really saying much, an overlay that defines a set of packages, acts already like a package set, if you mean that, any example of an overlay will do, if you mean adding an actual set of packages via some attrset as part of an overlay, then you can just use super.callPackage to a file that produces an attrset rather than a derivation, since that file could just have at least {
<ottidmes> callPackage }: as a dependency and then define its attrset
DrLambda has quit [Ping timeout: 250 seconds]
<ottidmes> samrose: just remember to call recurseIntoAttrs (defined in pkgs) on your attrset, so it is marked as an attrset containing packages (so nix-env / `nix search` can safely recurse into it to check for other packages)

<gchristensen> I'll solve it another way.
<elvishjerricco> gchristensen: Maybe some crazy `/dev/tty` hacks? `(read < /dev/tty && cat) | sudo do-something`
<gchristensen> :o
<manveru> ij: not really, i usually remove the gemset from the inputs temporarily
<elvishjerricco> er, `read foo < /dev/tty && echo $foo && cat`
<manveru> ij: or just run `bundix -l`, since i have that in my user profile
o1lo01ol1o has quit [Ping timeout: 250 seconds]

<manveru> heh
<manveru> `env = if builtins.pathExists ./gemset.nix then [ gems.wrappedRuby (lowPrio gems) ] else builtins.trace "to get your gems, please run bundix -l" [];`
<ij> because sometimes the gems didn't build or something, so I needed to remoev them
<manveru> i have this sometimes too
<manveru> so i just rm gemset.nix and it works
<elvishjerricco> gchristensen: The man page for sudo describes a `--stdin` flag which tells it to use stdin instead of the terminal device, implying there's a way to get the prompt on the terminal device built in
<ij> manveru: hm! also nice
<sb0> how do fetchgit/fetchurl/etc. disable the sandbox to get network access?
<sb0> it's not obvious from reading their code. they just look like usual derivations.

<betawaffle> hey folks, is there something special i need to do with the nixos minimal iso to get it to use a serial console? i'm trying to install nixos on an apu2d4, and i've got the iso flashed to a usb stick. i see isolinux stuff on serial, but then it just stops at some point
<betawaffle> cc: gchristensen, since i know you have an apu2c4
<gchristensen> cc disasm
<reallymemorable> I'm following these instructions: https://nixos.org/nixos/manual/index.html#sec-installation
<reallymemorable> I am still on local host when I check `ip a`
<reallymemorable> and so i went to configure manually so I tried `systemctl stop network-manager` as the instructions indicate
<sb0> in what package is the ping command?
<reallymemorable> and it says failed to stop network manager.service: Unit network-manager.service not loaded
<clever> ,locate bin ping
<{^_^}> Found in packages: busybox, iputils, inetutils, unixtools.ping
<{^_^}> [nixpkgs] @alyssais pushed to master « kakoune: remove inaccurate "unstable" from name »: https://git.io/fhdTj
<clever> sb0: iputils is the one nixos uses
<sb0> thx
<Alling> clever: Cool! I did run `which patchShebangs` to confirm your statement. :)
<clever> Alling: which only searches PATH, you want type
<reallymemorable> systemctl start display-manager <--- that also failed to run
<disasm> betawaffle: are you on #nixos-on-your-router?
<betawaffle> yep
<Alling> clever: Hm, `which` should be enough to confirm that something is not an executable (in PATH), right?
<Alling> Not that it's a Bash function of course.
<disasm> reallymemorable: can you run `which nmtui`?
<clever> Alling: type will tell you if its in PATH or not, and if its a function/alias, what the definition is
<disasm> I'm not sure network manager is in the installer
shibboleth has joined #nixos
<disasm> reallymemorable: yeah, that's a minimal install iso, no graphical environment
<reallymemorable> disasm: it says `which: no nmtui in (/root/bin....etc)`
<reallymemorable> ah ok
<disasm> reallymemorable: you, no network manager
<Alling> clever: `type` is actually _extremely_ useful, I must say.
<reallymemorable> disasm: what do you mean?
<clever> yep
<reallymemorable> i don't have a network manager?
<disasm> reallymemorable: just run that wpa_supplicant command
<disasm> ignore stopping network-manager step
<disasm> that's only in the live full gui installer
<reallymemorable> wpa_supplicant -B -i interface -c <(wpa_passphrase 'SSID' 'key')
<disasm> yeah, change interface to probably wlp3s0
<reallymemorable> how would i do that
<disasm> and SSID to your SSID and key to your psk
<reallymemorable> so the stuff in the quote marks gets changed
<reallymemorable> but where do i insert w1p3s0
<disasm> wpa_supplicant -B -i wlp3s0 -c <wpa_passphrase 'MyNetwork' 'mysecretpassword')
<reallymemorable> got it thanks
<disasm> if that fails, run ip addr show and check what the interface is named
<reallymemorable> im in a co-working space with a weird pop up to sign onto the internet
<reallymemorable> i might use my iphone hotspot

<disasm> oh, my I got karma!
<ottidmes> elvishjerricco: I don't know it from avahi, but I think it was with Samba, I believe it configured to what interfaces it binds to, by default it will bind to (all interfaces), but that can be problematic (was for me), so I had to limit to what interfaces it could bind, but not 100% sure if the same applies here
<elvishjerricco> ottidmes: Yea I don't mind if it's *accessible* to the network. I just don't want it published by avahi.
<reallymemorable> Add the root partition. This will fill the disk except for the end part, where the swap will live, and the space left in front (512MiB) which will be used by the boot partition.
<elvishjerricco> But I do want it published on a different interface.
<reallymemorable> # parted /dev/sda -- mkpart primary 512MiB -8GiB
<reallymemorable> for that step
<reallymemorable> do i adjust those numbers to the size of my devices HD?

<disasm> your gist you installed in ubuntu reallymemorable :)
<disasm> was a yorick package

<disasm> you may want to add networking.networkmanager.enable = true; to configuration.nix
<reallymemorable> ok when the install finishes i will do that
<gchristensen> how about wireless
<reallymemorable> i added the unfree line
<reallymemorable> to configuration.nix
<disasm> gchristensen: nixos-generate-config grabbed it
<gchristensen> cool
<disasm> yeah, you can re-run nixos-install any number of times
<gchristensen> well also networking.wireless.enable ?

<disasm> gchristensen: I'd suggest networkmanager instead for now
<gchristensen> ah

<disasm> you need plasma or gnome to have a gui
<reallymemorable> can i add it
<reallymemorable> or i have to start over
<disasm> plasma is on configuration.nix
<disasm> just edit it and uncomment
<reallymemorable> ah ok

<JosW> Hi all, I was trying to get my colleague into NixOS and he was installing subsonic https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/blob/master/nixos/modules/services/misc/subsonic.nix
trevorriles has quit [Quit: My MacBook has gone to sleep. ZZZzzz…]
<reallymemorable> there is a commented out line that says networking.wireless.enable = true
<reallymemorable> should i also uncomment that
joehh has quit [Ping timeout: 245 seconds]
<disasm> no, use networkmanager
<JosW> when using subsonic there was a sing telling there was an update to 6.1.5 available, searching for subsonic I found a default.nix https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/blob/4d1487908195d8c0975a3aca0b7a3a2dbf7301a8/pkgs/servers/misc/subsonic/default.nix
<reallymemorable> i dont see anything that says plasma
<disasm> you can use the declarative wireless config later if you want, but you have to add all your networks into that config
<JosW> which states it is version 6.1.5
<disasm> reallymemorable: do you see anything that says desktop in it?
<softinio> disasm: ty
rcshm_ has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
<reallymemorable> there is a section that says enable the KDE Desktop Environment
<reallymemorable> uncomment those lines?

<reallymemorable> services.xserver.desktopManager.plasma5.enable = true;
<reallymemorable> lol i see plasmanow
<disasm> you don't have to use kde, but that's the easiest one to setup since it's just uncommenting a couple lines
<reallymemorable> ok
<disasm> so we can get you to reboot and see if this will even work without reinstalling OSX
<reallymemorable> so its uncommented

<reallymemorable> so heres the error https://ibb.co/b25Q01v
<reallymemorable> other thing 1 sec
<acowley> Actually I'm probably confused about the problem I have. Some of AMD's newer code wants to query the current system hardware at build time. In particular, there is /dev/kfd that is in the video group. When I nix-build something that uses a helper tool that interacts with the GPU, it fails when trying to open /dev/kfd according to strace.

<acowley> Can I disable the sandbox for one build?
<elvishjerricco> acowley: If you're user is trusted (`nix show-config | grep trusted-users`), then you can pass the `--no-sandbox` flag to any nix command
<acowley> elvishjerricco: !! Thank you!
<disasm> reallymemorable: you need to uncomment the x11 stuff as well
<acowley> Is there a way to grant sandbox access to /dev/kfd?
<acowley> Declaratively I mean
<disasm> reallymemorable: lines 64 and 65
<reallymemorable> the 3 X11 lines
<elvishjerricco> acowley: I think so... I think you can add files to the sandbox in nix.conf. There's also relaxed sandbox mode but I don't know how that works
<ottidmes> acowley: maybe sandbox paths?
<disasm> reallymemorable: just the 2 eurosign xkb option :)
<acowley> I can't believe the sandbox didn't occur to me until typing my question here just now
<disasm> *unless*
<acowley> I spent over an hour fiddling with groups
<acowley> ottidmes: Thank you, that looks perfect
<disasm> yeah, I use extra-sandbox-paths = /etc/nsswitch.conf /etc/protocols acowley
<disasm> you can set that to whatever you need
<reallymemorable> disasm: are you talking to me
<reallymemorable> with the euro sign stuff?
<disasm> reallymemorable: yeah, you probably don't need that option uncommented
<disasm> just enable and layout x11 options
<reallymemorable> ok so i leave that third one commented
<reallymemorable> ok
<disasm> nixos-install again :)
<reallymemorable> ok its doing stuff

<JosW> ah, that's why there is an seperati default.nix?
<acowley> Setting nix.sandboxPaths in configuration.nix and switching didn't immediately work. Perhaps I need a full reboot. Fingers crossed.

drakonis has quit [Quit: WeeChat 2.3]
<srhb> samueldr: Very good! I like how it almost ends on a note of "imagine if we used Hydra for this sort of thing" if only the author knew :D
<acowley> I can only find something saying it can be renerD12x, but x usually starts at 8.
<srhb> (Even if they think we're crazy (and we probably are, a bit))
<samueldr> srhb: I'm thinking some attention should be given to run their "review notification" kernels through the nixos test suite, not saying "upstream nixos has to do it", but it's something to consider
<gchristensen> many things are true, like: we are a bit crazy. the perl infra shouldn't make 30kb shebangs. the kernel shouldn't breake userspace :P
<samueldr> and same for _testing
<samueldr> we might have spotted the overlayfs regression sooner too
<samueldr> though the issue here is humanpower I guess
<elvishjerricco> samueldr: How hard would it be to add some kind of automation that runs all the NixOS tests for nixos-<stable> on every new kernel release (candidate)?
<srhb> Yep :) All true. But I think this mainly puts us in a good light.
<samueldr> elvishjerricco: "how hard would it be" are the words I didn't want to say :)
<elvishjerricco> :P
<acowley> Does anyone have any recommendations for a NixOS friendly laptop with a nvidia GPU? (or anti-recommendations)
<samueldr> probably damn easy, but probably takes time
<srhb> acowley: Thinkpads in general are usually good. I'm biased though.
<srhb> (But I guess that's what recommendations are for...)
<acowley> srhb: Yeah, that's the way I'm being swayed based on what I've heard from non-NixOS folks
<elvishjerricco> acowley: Beware I've had endless problems with NVidia and NixOS
<srhb> acowley: fwiw I think it's mostly the business lines that are really good.
<acowley> :()
<reallymemorable> disasm: awesome thanks
<srhb> And they're expensive.
<acowley> I unfortunately need a Nvidia GPU for a particular project
<reallymemorable> so do i have to install it again
<srhb> acowley: fwiw I've had zero problems with nVidia and NixOS.
<disasm> reallymemorable: no :) edit /etc/nixos/configuration.nix and nixos-rebuild switch
<elvishjerricco> acowley: I think it's mostly not specific to NixOS, but problems that other distros have solved with hacks
vidbina has joined #nixos
<elvishjerricco> srhb: I still can't prevent screen tearing
<reallymemorable> `nixos-rebuild switch`
<reallymemorable> just like that?
<disasm> reallymemorable: that's the whole power of nixos :) you can interatively make changes and if things break, just rollback :)
<srhb> elvishjerricco: Oh, hm, is this running the nvidia driver directly? I only use optimus.
<disasm> iteratively
<srhb> (So, modesetting)
<disasm> I gotta run, good luck reallymemorable! glad it boots. Do you have wifi working in the install?
<srhb> I've heard the tearing issues from multiple people on the nvidia driver for sure (and regardless of distro)
<reallymemorable> lol thanks so much
<reallymemorable> haven't tried wifi yet
<acowley> I have trouble keeping the various nvidia driver options straight in my head. I thought I'd read that running the nvidia driver directly was more reliable than optimus.
<reallymemorable> holy shit my mouse works
<reallymemorable> wow
<reallymemorable> what a wild ride
<elvishjerricco> srhb: All I've got relating to nvidia is `nixpkgs.config.allowUnfreePredicate = p: lib.hasPrefix "nvidia" p.name ...;` and `services.xserver.videoDrivers = ["nvidia"];`, plus a little script that improves *most* but not all of the screen tearing
drakonis1 is now known as drakonis
<elvishjerricco> `nvidia-settings --assign CurrentMetaMode="nvidia-auto-select +0+0 { ForceFullCompositionPipeline = On }"`
<srhb> elvishjerricco: Ah, okay. Yeah, that's very different from what I do..
<elvishjerricco> srhb: What do you do?
<srhb> elvishjerricco: I have drivers = ["modesetting"]; only and hardware.bumblebee.enable = true;
<elvishjerricco> srhb: What do each of those do?
<srhb> The first uses the native intel card by default, the second allows me to use optirun to offload to the GPU on a case-by-case basis
<srhb> It's slower since I'm using the hybrid mode and have to transfer the data from the nvidia gpu to the intel one, but it's a nice user experience most of the time.
<reallymemorable> how do i install a browser on nixos?

<srhb> reallymemorable: How'd you end up picking NixOS, if I may ask?
<CrazedProgrammer> Hi all, I think I'm encountering an issue with a package that I want to add to Nixpkgs: https://github.com/Electrux/ls_extended . This package uses a custom build system (not used by anyone else) or build script (doesn't support custom compiler flags). What would be the proper action to take? Build the package using another build system like CMake? Or add compiler flag support to the custom build script? I really like this
<CrazedProgrammer> package but I don't think it would be up to the standards that nixpkgs would require.
<srhb> (It's not a typical beginner's choice, not that I mean to discourage you)
<acowley> Yeah, spec'ing out a T480s is not cheap
<reallymemorable> so I have been doing bizops for my company and am on a long term trajectory to get into Haskell

<skratl0x1C> I'm now to nixos, giving it a go, but this discoverability is a real show stopper, since it's entirely configuration based, using home-manager or not, but looking up those configuation options is really hard
<moredrea8> skratl0x1C: Oh, sorry, I'm mistaken, you can find them e.g. at https://nixos.org/nixos/options.html or in `man configuration.nix`
<skratl0x1C> moredrea8: right, but what about, eg. options for programs.git (home-manager)
<elvishjerricco> skratl0x1C: home-manager is a different thing.
<reallymemorable> do any of you guys use keybase with nixos? I installed it with pkgs.keybase but it wont start
<elvishjerricco> skratl0x1C: But they do have some kind of auto-docs IIRC
<reallymemorable> i got firefox and slack running with the same method
<reallymemorable> so im confused why keybase doesnt work -- when keybase is listed as a package

<acowley> That lwn article about shebangs is pretty interesting. I'm surprised folks are defending the patch's inclusion given the timeline as presented.

<moredrea8> acowley: Do you have a link?
<acowley> The worse part is doubling down on defending it by blaming people for not catching the bug when in fact people did catch the bug.
<skratl0x1C> moredrea8: oh right, thanks :) so, this man file contain all of it, or just all of what I have installed ?
<elvishjerricco> reallymemorable: What do you mean it won't start?
<elvishjerricco> acowley: Yea. Someone should point that out
<reallymemorable> i can see it in the start menu and i click it and nothing happens

<acowley> Automating things is great, but every automated system needs a prominent, tested, omnipotent Emergency Stop button.
<elvishjerricco> reallymemorable: I know nothing about keybase, sorry. But FYI, this page is really useful for searching for services you might need to enable: https://nixos.org/nixos/options.html#
<elvishjerricco> reallymemorable: Some software is more than just a program, but also a service that needs to be constantly running in the background. Looks like keybase might be on of them?

<acowley> Irritating because avahi on a raspbian server in a closet works great, but NixOS is the weak networking link on my home LAN.
<elvishjerricco> acowley: At least that almost confirms it's a NixOS thing, not an avahi thing. How is it set up on the raspbian server?
<acowley> elvishjerricco: The fact that it works occassionally for me makes me think it's making a useful broadcast followed by a bad one.

<cbarrett> hi, it's me again. I'm having trouble getting stage 1 of NixOS to boot on my cloud provider. I tried both the generated hardware-configuration.nix which used UUIDs and my own by-label config. Is it worth it to give hardcoding /dev/sda1 + /dev/sda2 a try? Or is there something else I should be aware of.

<Nivpgir> hi
<blumenkranz> gchristensen: immae: Mostly error checking. I want to check the types of files and directories listed by the user.
<simpson> blumenkranz: Note that most of what's set up in the build phases is inherently in bash. However, it's documented how to completely override the builder: https://nixos.org/nix/manual/#ssec-derivation
rcshm_ has quit [Ping timeout: 245 seconds]
<immae> blumenkranz: would adding "ls $out" in your buildPhase (or wherever you like) be what you’d like to achieve? If not, at which time do you want to do error checking?
<Nivpgir> I was here yesterday, situation is: new nixos install (first time), with networkmanager, butwifi not working, I was advised yesterday to use: hardware.enableAllFirmware = true, did that, still no wifi.
<Nivpgir> I think my issue might be the same as the one discussed here: https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/52645
<{^_^}> #52645 (by tokudan, 8 weeks ago, open): Revert firmware-linux-nonfree to fix broken Ath10k/QCA9377 wlan adapters [18.09]
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: I'm using a local copy of nixpkgs with these changes reverted :/
<Nivpgir> theres also a workaround there, but I'm not sure exactly how to use it, can someone here guide me?
ost has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<blumenkranz> immae: simpson: gchristensen: The idea is that I am trying to import a user-listed parameter into a package. This is to import some specific config files into the package's /etc/. Depending on what the user inputted, I have to be able to check whether some specific files exist, in order to modify the build.
<blumenkranz> Basically, I am trying to add a custom profiles option to the Firejail module, but I tried doing all the checks in Nix, which doesn't have access to the original directories in build time.
<immae> blumenkranz: if I understand correctly, you build a derivation, where some of the input is "user-given" and you don’t control it, and you want to check that the user didn’t try to do something bad?
<Nivpgir> tokudan[m]: how do I use a local copy of nixpkgs, and where do I get it from? and how do I get the firmware from it?
<blumenkranz> immae: Well, I can't check whether they did something bad, but I would like to check whether they did something wrong, like listing a non-directory as input. However, I want to be able to match a series of user-inputted commands to their hypothetical profile files.
<blumenkranz> Which may or may not exist. I guess I could do this in bash, but I dunno.
<blumenkranz> Should I just do it in bash?
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir:
<Nivpgir> sorry for asking like this, my plan was to start using nixos, and get fimiliar with the environment with time, but I can't really do that with no wifi...
<simpson> blumenkranz: You can use any language you like in your builders. What did you want to use?
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: basically, "git clone https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs.git; cd nixpkgs; git revert fbb7dbdb95d04f1517ec8011a3332a8c4c0e86e6 7cf770ca93cad1b3c3bb464fd4e58db79419ac25"
<blumenkranz> simpson: I was thinking about using just Nix to generate a bash script.
<elvishjerricco> acowley: This fixed the avahi thing for me: https://www.irccloud.com/pastebin/PrOhRDUV/
<elvishjerricco> Didn't verify that addresses and domain were necessary, just did it to match the default debian config
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: then, when you rebuild your system (replace /your/path/to/nixpkgs/here with the correct path): NIX_PATH=/root/.nix-defexpr/channels:nixpkgs=/your/path/to/nixpkgs/here:nixos-config=/etc/nixos/configuration.nix:/nix/var/nix/profiles/per-user/root/channels nixos-rebuild boot
<blumenkranz> simpson: Or rather, Nix inside a bash script, but I can't seem to access the $out and $src variables from within the ${} blocks
<immae> blumenkranz: bad or wrong is not so different :) . Then, if you want to check "$out" after the build, it’s simply the /nix/store/hash-your-name path, you can check whatever you like in it, it’s the exact "$out" content.
<simpson> blumenkranz: ${} antiquotes are in Nix, not bash.
<immae> and $src is not very different from the src= of the derivation (there is an unpacking step, but that’s all)
<immae> (blumenkranz: I’m sorry it’s still unclear to me what you’re trying to do exactly, if you have an example it would help)

<blumenkranz> immae: It's okay, I am finding it kinda difficult to explain haha
<blumenkranz> immae: Basically, I took the firejail module at https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/blob/master/nixos/modules/programs/firejail.nix, and added a new option "customProfile", of type nullOr path, which can be set by the user.
<blumenkranz> immae: Then I set the firejail-wrapped-packages derivation's src to the customProfile parameter, and now I am in the process of modifying the buildCommand parameter.
<Nivpgir> tokudan[m]: thats how I should set the variable before running `nixos-install --root /path/to/nixos/part/root` from my working linux, right?
<immae> ok!
<immae> (let me process that :p )
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: hmm... not sure if it works in the installer
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: it's probably worth a try though
johanot has quit [Quit: WeeChat 2.2]
<blumenkranz> immae: The idea is that the user can set customProfile to a path of their liking, which will then be copied into the firejail-wrapped-packages' /etc. After that, the buildCommand will generate every wrapper's bash script, but there is a catch: all imported profile files that can match the given command name in wrappedBins will be passed to the script as firejail's --profile option.
<gchristensen> hmm it seems to me that nobody actually uses the autorandr with predefined layouts
<immae> ok
<immae> So first, this alone will not put anything in /etc

<Nivpgir> tokudan[m]: I don't see any other options since I can't rebuild nixos form within nixos cause theres no wifi.
<blumenkranz> immae: So basically, I have to check whether command.profile has been imported, and then generate the script accordingly.
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: no way to connect a cable?
<blumenkranz> immae: I can copy and paste the horrible, horrible source of the WIP, if you wish
shibboleth has quit [Ping timeout: 256 seconds]
<immae> It may put things in /nix/store/hash-path/etc, which you’ll have to move to /etc in another way after the build (for instance with activationScripts)
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: and no way to boot an older generation?
<immae> (no, I get what you’re trying to do)
<Nivpgir> I don't have a generation where it works, this is the first time I'm installing nixos, and that's how it booted
<immae> blumenkranz: now that you have your src, you can add for instance a "mkdir $out/etc" and "cp $src" $out/etc/some-name.conf", this will put your custom file in the derivation
<reallymemorable> disasm: awesome thank you
<{^_^}> [nixpkgs] @oxij opened pull request #56020 → nixos: doc: include all modules in manual generation → https://git.io/fhdO3
<blumenkranz> immae: Yes, I think that part is working.

<blumenkranz> Exactly.
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: that sucks. sorry, don't have an idea on how to solve that. I'd suggest to make a notice in the issue and/or PR
<blumenkranz> But I want to check whether some-name.conf exists first
<disasm> reallymemorable: yeah, declarable configuration is what makes nix so powerful. If you need something that's not in nix, you don't want to try to install it the way their site says to, you want to build a derivation that does it the right way using nix.
<immae> Sure
<immae> So adding the config is alright, now you need to check it before validating

<immae> Do you have something like `/run/wrappers/bin/firejail --is-conf-valid some-name.conf` ?
<blumenkranz> immae: I'm using pathExists right now.
<blumenkranz> Yes, --is-conf-valid is a Nix function, though. Within ${}

<immae> sorry, I wasn’t clear. How do you decide that your user configuration is valid or not?
<Nivpgir> tokudan[m]: wait, actually, if I reinstall everything to use version 18.03, will it work?
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: that should work
<Nivpgir> tokudan[m]: and then I can upgrade from there, if I want to
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: then you could update using a modified version of nixpkgs
<blumenkranz> If it exists within $out/etc, and matches the given ${command} name as command.profile, then I generate the --profile=command.profile bit, otherwise, it is just "firejail ${binary}"
<Nivpgir> yep
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: do you know git well enough to track a branch or rebase?
<blumenkranz> The line is more or less "firejail ${--profile-if-config-file-exists} ${binary}"

<blumenkranz> Nah, I would go insane if I had to write a firejail config file parser in Nix hahaha.
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: that basically takes an old version of the firmware package and takes only the qca9377 firmware, it's probably preferable instead of keeping your own version of nixpkgs
<immae> ok

<blumenkranz> immae: Could I just check against src?
ost has joined #nixos
<immae> blumenkranz: is that what you want? https://paste.ee/p/LZ0uf
<tokudan[m]> nivpgir: if you already have wifi in the installer, you can ignore building your own installer
<immae> if the path was provided, then you create etc and put the path there, and use --config. Otherwise, nothing changes from the "standard" one
<LnL> nivpgir: sure, it uses the same config format so you can reuse that for the final system if necessary
<Nivpgir> I don't know if I will have wifi in the installer, I installed nixos from a working arch linux, not from a bootable image.
<immae> note that since $out is "specific" to your derivation, you don’t need to call your profile your-name.profile, you can just name it with a non-varying value like "profile.profile"
<immae> (unless the name of the file is important to failjail)
<immae> s/failjail/firejail/
<blumenkranz> immae: Yes, that's more or less the thing, except every program in the wrappedBins set should have its own specific config file
<immae> it will
<blumenkranz> immae: Nah, it's failjail haha.
<immae> each derivation will have his own $out folder
<immae> they won’t be mixed
<immae> so each $out will have his $out/bin/failjail and $out/etc/profile.profile specific to the user

<blumenkranz> immae: I guess it depends on whether the current implementation can set different wrapped binaries on a per-user basis
<LnL> ah ok, so an older channel/iso works?
<immae> the current one cannot, but since you’re modifying it anything can happen
<Nivpgir> tokudan[m]: oh, I thought you were referring to the cd image solution, good then, I'll try that first.
<blumenkranz> immae: My fork isn't all that different, so I guess it can only be set on a system wide basis
<tokudan[m]> LnL: nivpgir doesn't know, because there's no older version to go back to on his(?) system
alex`` has joined #nixos
<tokudan[m]> LnL: it's a fresh install
<immae> but then currently you can only pass one single path, and it will apply to all binaries that you wrap
<immae> it may not be what you want
<LnL> nivpgir: this builds an iso that includes a fix so that should give you internet access to finish an install https://gist.github.com/LnL7/034907a17956276160a0b15d90c4fc72
<LnL> nivpgir: if you add the firmware entry to the generated hardware-configuration.nix before the install your final system will also include it
<blumenkranz> Ah, no, it applies a different config on a per-command basis. The "mapAttrsToList () cfg.wrappedBinaries" expression iterates the command.profile on each key-value pair.
<blumenkranz> More specifically, it takes the key in order to form $out/etc/key.profile
<immae> ok, so you modified that part too
<immae> but it seems to me that you still lack information to correctly build the scenario I pointed above, and you’ll end up with collisions in names
<blumenkranz> Yeah. To be honest, this is my first NixOS fork, and I am just doing it because I am fairly sure nobody else would want to do it, and since the last firejail update, it is a must.
<immae> you’ll have one "git" wrapped for A, and one "git" wrapped for B, and one "neomutt" wrapped for A, and one "neomutt" wrapped for B, which will collide, unless you prefix the wrapped names
<blumenkranz> immae: Well, to be fair, the original module does that as well.
<immae> It does it but not related to A or B :p
