kiwiirc has joined #nixos
<kiwiirc> after 20 years of running freebsd, i'm switching to linux for both desktop and server. *bsd has stagnated too badly, sadly. now i need to choose a distro, and i'm looking for security, reliability, and performance, in that order. which distro has the best rep for that pls?
<multun> debian would be the go to
<kiwiirc> why may i ask?
kristofers has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<DigitalKiwi> yeah, why
<DigitalKiwi> i wouldn't even tell people i don't like to use debian
<mtn> energizer: Hm, should I be able to call `:p` on `poetry2nix.mkPoetryEnv`? I tried that and a few other invocations -- I should probably go brush up on what the distinction between these objects are
<multun> it's not a good user distro, and yet it runs the server world
<multun> it has an active dedicated security team which provides fast updates, it has a pretty long release cycle, and it's also pretty bloat free
<multun> kiwiirc: is it for a server or for a desktop ?
<Athas> kiwiirc: if security and reliability are your #1 and #2 concerns, why does the BSD stagnation matter?
<kiwiirc> both, i wanna use same distro for both desktop/gaming and serious servers
<kiwiirc> cuz it's a shit desktop/gaming experience
<Athas> Isn't it mostly stagnant in features and performance? E.g. I use OpenBSD for servers when I can get away with it, but it is dog slow.
<kiwiirc> tried using plasma DE on it and tons of stuff didn't work
<kiwiirc> i've been using freebsd
<kiwiirc> the problem is that linux has 99% of the dev/commercial attention, and is gaining users. BSD is being limped along
<energizer> i'd think the 600 pound gorilla is ubuntu
<multun> yeah it's probably the best for a first linux distro
<multun> if you want super up to date software, manjaro is pretty darn nice compared to ubuntu
<kiwiirc> i don't mind tough to learn, i've been using fbsd for 20 years, but i do wanna choose the right distro

cransom has joined #nixos
<Athas> kiwiirc: for Linux, I would (perhaps obviously) always pick NixOS, unless I had specific requirements like support contracts that make me pick RHEL instead.
<Athas> For a desktop system that will have frequent updates and configuration changes, definitely NixOS.
<DigitalKiwi> lol manjaro seriously?
<DigitalKiwi> and have you considered nixos
<multun> DigitalKiwi: anything with up to date software
<kiwiirc> multun makes a good point about a dedicated security team which is obviously important for a server platform. can nixos compete?
<DigitalKiwi> manjaro users can't even find the right irc channel
<multun> 1) ubuntu has a huge community, and is a debian derivative. it uses the same package manager with different repositories. it has a long release cycle, but not at long as debian. security isn't that great, they have a team which isn't famous for being that good
<Athas> Definitely don't run these dubious derived distributions like Manjaro. They trade superficial complexity for deep complexity.
<DigitalKiwi> nixos has a security team
<Athas> NixOS doesn't do things like security backports, does it?
<kiwiirc> ya i'm gonna stick with a root linux distro, not a derivation
<DigitalKiwi> gchristensen is on it
<Athas> kiwiirc: if you want a Linux with reliability and security as the focus, then run CentOS or RHEL.

<multun> 2) nixos is very, very different compared to most linux distros. is has a rolling release unstable channel, and stable releases. it's pretty up to date, also gets security updates sort of in time, but still not professionnal as debian. it has some quite amazing package and config management capabilities, which come with a quite steep learning curve
<mtn> learning curve is indeed steep :p
<energizer> it's technically true that ubuntu is a variant of debian, but i think it's substantially more mainstream than debian is
zupo has joined #nixos
<multun> 3) archlinux is a pretty barebones rolling release distro, which mostly gets sec patches with upstream releases, even though some fast patches sometimes get though, a bit like nixos. software is more up to date than with a stable nixos or ubuntu, and it also has a pretty clean filesystem layout. not the most stable distro, but the most stable rolling release out there. manjaro is an overlay distro
<multun> which adds an installer and better UX, never tried it myself, but people seem to like it

<DigitalKiwi> hi i'm ArchKiwi on twitter and i use nixos
<DigitalKiwi> if that says anything about arch
<multun> 4) RHEL is a very enterprisy linux, which is super stable, has a dedicated sec team just like debian, but also has the same long release cycle. fedora is the community / same company maintained distro with a faster release cycle. pretty decent, a lot of cutting edge features
<multun> kiwiirc: even though ubuntu mostly works like debian, it is very well maintained and isn't just a ripoff
<kiwiirc> hmm
<multun> choosing a distro is super hard
<kiwiirc> multun ty for the summaries. have one for gentoo?
<kiwiirc> ya it is
<idontgetoutmuch[> I'd say this is a very poor feature of nix: my error message was caused by me using a particular hash; if I use a different hash I get the expected error message of the hashes do not match.
<multun> gentoo has some pretty nice package management, but it's also pretty involved to use. it has better package management than most distros, but binary caches aren't traditionnaly a thing, so gentoo users usualy spend ages rebuilding stuff to get the packaging features they want
waleee-cl has joined #nixos

<kiwiirc> multun how would you summarize centos? and ty but i don't have anything for voice chat
<mtn> Is there a function to serialize lists, just for printing/debugging?
domogled has joined #nixos
<DigitalKiwi> and centos was always my go to server distro (now it's nixos)

<kiwiirc> multun how often are there sec vulns in nixos that are slow to be patched?
<multun> gaping famous vulns are usualy patched fast
<immae> idontgetoutmuch[: I think there were a PR that added a feature to allow *not* putting a hash (replacing it behind the hood by zeroes), that would solve this kind of issue
<multun> anyone can submit a patch pretty easily, and many people do
<multun> not all vulns are patched that fast because of the outstanding number of packages in nixpks
<multun> I believe it's the biggest maintained package repository out there
<kiwiirc> even bigger than arch's?
<multun> oh yeah, a lot bigger
<immae> it is according to repology yes
<etu> kiwiirc:
<immae> Ease of contribution is a nice word but it’s kind of false, contributions may stay forgotten for ages before getting attention and that’s frustrating
<multun> easy contributions are usualy merged pretty fast
<multun> but yeah, sometimes it takes ages and it's unfortunate

<multun> the truth is most distros just work, you'll meet a lot of people that like their stuff better because X, and will try to convince you it's the best thing in the world. at the end of the day, picking one over another usualy isn't a big deal
<multun> nixos is a notable exception, as it is very different from all the others. better on many aspects, but still different
<multun> if you wanna impress your freebsd friends with crazy features, the nixos church is a pretty good one!
<kiwiirc> is nixos used in any well known server environments?
<multun> shopify I think?
<multun> it's not very popular with companies, it's so different from the rest they usualy don't want to handle the learning curve for newcomers
<DigitalKiwi> have you seen nixops
<multun> it also only have reached decent maturity recently, so many companies just haven't heard of it
<multun> but I believe it's the most server-capable distro out there
<multun> it's a bit like rust

<multun> nixos is like rust because it's the new shiny thing that's actually better than what was there before, but isn't yet widespread enough to make companies dive
<kiwiirc> what about nixos makes it so much different/better than other distros? just the declarative whole-system config?
<kiwiirc> "just", i know
<multun> yeah, it is
<kiwiirc> i actually pushed for freebsd to incorporate the same idea a couple decades ago. UCL got created but it didn't go much further
<multun> I spent years with traditional configuration management software, like ansible or salt

<kiwiirc> ppl called me a "winblowz registry fag"
<kiwiirc> nice
<DigitalKiwi> Initial release2003; 17 years ago
<mtn> Okay, so another newbie question: how can I find out what the set returned by `buildPythonPackage` looks like?
<multun> it's actually super shitty compared to what nixos can do
<kiwiirc> isn't nix similar to ansible since they both have declarative configs?
<multun> kiwiirc: nixos also trashes all the weird bullshit inherited from who knows when, like the weird filesystem layout
<multun> not at all
<multun> ansible is very imperative
<energizer> it's similar, yes
<kiwiirc> i'd normally overlook something like nixos because ansible made me hate using config files for complex stuff, i just wanna use code for ops now
<multun> it you install a configuration file and do not delete it later, you're screwed
<kiwiirc> sorry, nixops, not nixos
<multun> I realize my sentence doesn't make sense, sorry about that
<multun> anyway, ansible is super imperative, it just runs actions in a sequence
<multun> with nixos, you're a 100% sure your configuration actually reflects what's running
<multun> if your machines dies and you have the config someware, you will be able to spin it up from a backup

<immae> yes
<DigitalKiwi> nixops - the paper
asymptotically has quit [Quit: Leaving]
<multun> I mean that as everything is configured declaratively, you only need the nixos system configuration to rebuild all your /etc, install all your programs, and even renew your certificates to some extent
<kiwiirc> i'll read that ty DigitalKiwi. my problem with config-based workflows is eventually the config language becomes complex enough to just turn into a shitty programming language in which case it's better to just use a programming language. my dream is to use rust for ops/cm

<multun> nix is a programming language
<DigitalKiwi> nix is a p
<DigitalKiwi> yeah that
<kiwiirc> there we go :)
<kiwiirc> well at least it's mature enough to have understood what it needs to be
pjt_tmp is now known as pjt_mpt
<kiwiirc> is the idea that what you learn in nix, you can apply to both nixos and nixops?
drewr has joined #nixos
<energizer> "Nix" is the name of the language, but it's also the name of the package manager written in that language

<energizer> unfortunately
<DigitalKiwi> sometimes makes it hard to know which manual to read
<energizer> there are three
<DigitalKiwi> but i linked that already
<multun> kiwiirc: yeah that's pretty much it
o1lo01ol1o has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<kiwiirc> that seems pretty good. i'd obviously prefer if it was all rust, but at least i'd be able to get rid of ansible and its shitty config format from my stack
<Athas> kiwiirc: I mean, Nix is a shitty programming language, but it started out that way instead of organically growing to become that.
<multun> :D
<kiwiirc> i can respect that at least
o1lo01ol1o has joined #nixos
<multun> you'd love those sick compile times to do anything
<kiwiirc> fair rebuttal :P
<multun> Athas: it's a DSL tailor made for doing that thing right
<kiwiirc> are any usage stats of nixos available? would be good to see a trend line for it. 20 years into freebsd learning going into the toilet, i'd really like to avoid another mistake
<multun> I'm pretty sure the trend is up
<Athas> For the Eventual NixOS Successor, I think the most important improvement would be replacing the Nix language with something that has types. Guix replaces the Nix language with a better language (Scheme), but that improvement on its own is not enough for me to move away from NixOS.
nixbitcoin has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
<kiwiirc> static typing for the yay!
<multun> yeah I do have to agree
<Athas> kiwiirc: no usage statistics that I know of, but at least Nixpkgs sees growing activity:
<Athas> Also importantly, NixOS is fundamentally a Linux that runs ordinary kernels and software, so it benefits from general Linux improvements.
<multun> I don't think there are any usage state out there actually
<multun> for _any_ linux distro
<multun> even distros that do don't do it in the same way, so it's hard to compare
<kiwiirc> Athas is it as generic as arch is? i was reaching about arch and it seemed pretty much "either upstream accepts patches or we don't keep them"
<Athas> kiwiirc: Nixpkgs contains patches as needed, but mostly (exclusively?) to work around Nix-specific issues.
<Athas> It's not like Debian.
<kiwiirc> i like a minimal distro that's generic unlike de.... ya
<Athas> I think Debian is the only distribution that patches the way it does.
<kiwiirc> ok great ty
<kiwiirc> which repo has nixos in it?
<energizer> nixpkgs
<kiwiirc> ty
<kiwiirc> 2k open pull requests ha
<kiwiirc> reminds me of rust with its 5k+ open issues
<Athas> Yeah, contributing to Nixpkgs can require a lot of patience.
<Athas> Too few committers, too many PRs I think.
<multun> kiwiirc: it has like 500 merged PRs a week
<energizer> it's a pretty serious issue imo, i hope the community can figure out a way to automate or hire that problem away
<kiwiirc> Athas looks like the trend is having a nice, albeit small, exponential growth

<multun> what? nixos is pretty good for servers
<Athas> evils: oh right, the unquoted ones are deprecated now, right?
<energizer> Athas: yes
<multun> it's a risky choice for enterprises because people usualy aren't familiar with it, but it's a super good server distro
<kiwiirc> multun sorry i thought you recommended debian over nixos for server
cinimod has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
<kiwiirc> mainly for the slow sec patching
<multun> kiwiirc: debian is the most commonly used
cinimod has joined #nixos
<multun> kiwiirc: it all depends on what you prefer
<kiwiirc> security, reliability, and performance, in that order
<multun> :D
<Athas> I think a single NixOS server will require more maintenance than a single Debian or CentOS server, but NixOS seems pretty popular if you have many servers (so you'd use some kind of orchestration framework anyway).
<kiwiirc> i run systems with only a few services and very locked down firewall/daemon rules fwiw
<multun> nixos will push you out of your comfort zone
<kiwiirc> why would it require more maintenance athas?
<Athas> In particular, NixOS shines when you want to rebuild servers declaratively. I'm a sysadmin amateur, so my servers are pets, not cattle.
<multun> if you're ok with that, then it's better than debian
<Athas> kiwiirc: I can leave a Debian Stable running for years and just run an 'apt upgrade' sometimes, without worry.
<kiwiirc> ya i don't care about comfort zone i only care about high quality end result
o1lo01ol1o has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
<Athas> NixOS will certainly fix security problems just as quickly as Debian, but they might also come with functionality changes.
<kiwiirc> a consequence of rolling vs point releases?
<multun> nixos doesn't have breaking changes in the same release
<multun> nixos has releases
<multun> it also has release notes
<Athas> Yeah, but for how long are those releases supported?
<Athas> RHEL/CentOS is supported for something like a decade.
<multun> only the latest is supported, but it doesn't matter much as software management is better done
<DigitalKiwi> changing release is easy though
<multun> people can keep antique software and run a recent nixos if they want
<DigitalKiwi> you can even go backwards
<Athas> Sure. I guess my main argument is mostly that RHEL/CentOS/Debian is more tolerant to _bad_ or negligent administration. If you put in the effort, NixOS is fully as stable and secure as those.
<DigitalKiwi> go try and downgrade your debian tell me how it goes
<multun> I've administered both nixos and regular distros on a small scale basis, shared with 5 coworkers each time, and nixos is just better
<multun> I upgraded to a more recent release without even rebooting
<multun> people can't patch shit in place, they have to update the nix configuration and pull it
<kiwiirc> hm speaking of work, how are nix* jobs? might be nice to find a rust+nixos/ops devops gig
<KarlJoad> Hey guys, how would I go about getting the path to my user's home directory for a home-manager module? I used `${config.users.users.<name>.home}` to try and get it, and I get the error "error: attribute 'users' missing, at /home/karl/.config/nixpkgs/home.nix:16:15", even though I have `config` as an argument to the home.nix function module.
o1lo01ol1o has joined #nixos

<Athas> Anecdotally, the professional Nix ops users I know of are mostly working in small organisations, where they can decide on the tech themselves.
<DigitalKiwi> tweag removed the page that had all of their staff from their website? :(
<MichaelRaskin> Also, that tasks where good engineering can pay off are rarely even attempted
<multun> I mean that's not surprising, for a company to switch to nixos, you have to move all the team out of their comfort zone, out of nixos
<multun> into nixos*
o1lo01ol1o has joined #nixos
<kiwiirc> multun or that good engineers aren't valued as much as they should be
<multun> they are
<Athas> For example, I think the backend ops team for the Danish public libraries ran NixOS.
orivej has joined #nixos
<multun> I work in a super big tech company with super terrible package management, and it's mostly due to the fact moving away from the current infrastructure is pretty much impossible
<multun> not because engineers are bad
<multun> also, the bigger the company is, the more weird constraints there are
<kiwiirc> ya that underscores athas' point about small shops. that's a lot of rust too, tho past year or so Big Tech, Inc has started to bring rust into its mix
<Athas> Anyway, the best OS is the one you don't have to manage. We have RHEL development servers at my job, and those are great because keeping them running and updated is not my problem.
<kiwiirc> would be nice if a few of them brought nix* in too
<multun> nix can't be used at my company because it doesn't support QNX, nor windows
ebopp has joined #nixos
<dminuoso> Athas: Haha, that sort of reasoning has little to do with RHEL though, but rather with the fact that its someone elses problem.
<MichaelRaskin> In a large company it is cheaper to have a dedicated quirk-fixing team than make everyone relearn
<dminuoso> MichaelRaskin: That depends on how many servers you have.
<kiwiirc> athas ya but there's a danger in that, of the whole internet consolidating to GCE/Azure/AWS
<Athas> dminuoso: totally! But it's nice to have an OS where the upgrade procedure is "send an email to someone who is paid to care about it".
<multun> Athas: that type of management is super stupid long term.
<dminuoso> multun: No its not, it's what you do when you scale.
<dminuoso> We maintain a fleet of 300+ servers.
<dminuoso> I cant be responsible for OS upgrades.
<Athas> kiwiirc: oh, we have physical hardware. And in fact, whenever we want hardware upgrades; I have to grab a screwdriver and do it myself. The IT department only handles software. It's a little weird.
<Athas> I think it would be awesome if the servers here ran NixOS, honestly. It would make parts of my life easier.
<multun> dminuoso: he was refering to the 'I just install and upgrade stuff by and, it just works' strat before, I'm not sure I'm understanding him correctly
o1lo01ol1o has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
<DigitalKiwi> i maintain that a lot of the alleged security of RHEL and the like is not that their programs are more secure or better patched (frequently they're more out of date and more vulnerable) but that more of the problems (and workarounds) are known because they're 10 years old
<MichaelRaskin> They do backport patches
<dminuoso> DigitalKiwi: I think its actually about something else.
<MichaelRaskin> Sometimes to the level of creating the infamous RHEL-exclusive gcc version
<Athas> DigitalKiwi: I don't think that makes the security "alleged". It is well known that minimising change and features is key to security.
<dminuoso> DigitalKiwi: The RHEL mentality is "changes cause breakage so dont ship changes"
<multun> dminuoso: that's pretty much what he's saying
<kiwiirc> so RHEL is basically frozen forever save for sec patches or?
<dminuoso> kiwiirc: No, but frozen for feature changes.
<MichaelRaskin> Not forever, until the next major release
<Athas> A specific major version of RHEL is feature frozen, yes.
<dminuoso> You still get security patches, but dont expect to get the new version of nginx containing feature XYZ.
<MichaelRaskin> (with, of course, a few years of overlap)
<Athas> They issue new major versions every 3-5 years.
<kiwiirc> new major version is basically new kernel + updated packages then another 3-5 years till the next, and 10 years of sec patch support?

<DigitalKiwi> hey i'm also in #archlinux
<dminuoso> kiwiirc: Its a mixed bag.
<kiwiirc> is nixos any worse for desktop/gaming than ubuntu or other desktop focused distros?
<kiwiirc> dminuoso how so if i may ask?
<dminuoso> Well I use nixos for my laptop as well.
<dminuoso> Its rock solid here.
<kiwiirc> nice
<dminuoso> The main problem with nixos for servers is if you have a team of people and they dont know nix.
<kiwiirc> ah ok
<Athas> kiwiirc: slightly worse than Ubuntu, mostly because Steam puts effort into running correctly on Ubuntu. However, I use NixOS for gaming, and it works fine, albeit sometimes it requires a little prodding.
<kiwiirc> but not the engineering itself
<energizer> kiwiirc: for desktop it's a more complicated answer. nixos makes you do a lot of work to get things working, but then they stay working.
<kiwiirc> athas with the prodding can it run games as well as ubuntu?
pjt_mpt has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
<multun> I got people into nix to run servers, and they are happy about it. they just have to be willing to do it
<Athas> kiwiirc: yes, *if* something runs it's just as fast and stable as it would be on Ubuntu.
<kiwiirc> if something doesn't run, is it impossible or just requires config?
<Athas> These days I am playing Original Sin 2 running in Steam Proton on NixOS, and it runs beautifully. That's quite far from the environment the developers intended!
<kiwiirc> fuck ya
<Athas> Mostly just enough config to make the run-time environment look Ubuntu-ish. Nixpkgs has lots of helper things to make it work.
<kiwiirc> ok great
<kiwiirc> i've pillaged yall with enough questions. tyvm. i'm almost sold. gonna go read everything on the nix site
<Athas> There is a 'steam-run' derivation that makes most of the needed libraries available for command line running, and I think the 'steam' derivation itself also does it.
<kiwiirc> really really appreciate it
<multun> kiwiirc: many stuff requires patching to run on nixos, as many programs go fetch stuff inside /etc like it's chistmas, or exec /bin/bash
<multun> kiwiirc: it's not always "just config", but adding support for most software is super smooth thanks to all the previous work
<kiwiirc> oh so i might have to patch code
<multun> it does happen when you package stuff yeah
<multun> it's almost never the end of the world, but it's still there
nikita` has joined #nixos
<Athas> Yeah, the smoothness of NixOS is built on thousands of man-hours invested in workarounds in Nixpkgs.
<multun> It's still much, much easier than packaging stuff for debian derivatives, and even arch derivatives
<multun> nix people has to patch and repackage the world so it's pretty darn smooth to package new things now
<Athas> But the workarounds are stable, documented in code, and shared. It's very different to other distributions, where your fixes become invisible just after you've made them.
<Athas> I ran Debian for ten years without contributing anything, but I made my first PR to Nixpkgs the same weekend I installed NixOS.
<Athas> It's orders of magnitude smoother.
<multun> same here
<kiwiirc> i like the idea of invested work being shared and building a better common base so that's fine with me
<kiwiirc> fortunately i know more langs than just rust
agsdheidjd has joined #nixos
<kiwiirc> someone said about nixos: "I think Nix works but is wasteful, inelegant, and encourages bad software. it reminds me a lot of Windows where you dump a million tons of redundant deps into C:\Programs Files\ and each program has its own copy of the same dep, because they can't interoperate, because they're bad software running on a bad host"
<kiwiirc> any validity?
<multun> no
<multun> that's pretty backwards

<manveru> DigitalKiwi: you do your own silkscreen printing?
<multun> oh yeah
<kiwiirc> DigitalKiwi much respect to anyone who writes haskell. i wanted to learn it but it's too niche so i went with rust :P
<DigitalKiwi> i have not done silkscreen printing i airbrush though
<DigitalKiwi> rust is the gateway lang to haskell
<DigitalKiwi> ask lovesegfault
<DigitalKiwi> i'll help anyone learn haskell as much as i am able
<manveru> i really like the baby colored ones for some reason...
<kiwiirc> pls, don't tempt me
<kiwiirc> menveru ya but which emoji skin tone variant baby color!?
<KarlJoad> kiwiirc: Haskell by itself is not terribly hard to learn. Getting functionality out of it like what you expect out of imperative languages is the hard part.
<kiwiirc> ya that sounds right. when i'd talk to ppl in #haskell or watch vids the big concepts made sense but translating it into a working program was a different story
<{^_^}> [nixos-homepage] @edibopp opened pull request #483 → Enable local link checking and fix a few outdated links →
<kiwiirc> really great link digitalkiwi
<KarlJoad> What I found was the key thing in Haskell, at least for me, was understanding the smallest amount of work possible to achieve something. For example, don't write 1 big function to achieve 5 things. Write 10 small functions that do 1 thing and put them together in creative ways.
<kiwiirc> same in rust actually. some of the hardest concepts in rust (like lifetimes) are irrelevant to most code
<kiwiirc> good advice
<KarlJoad> Lifetimes are only really difficult to consider when writing multithreaded things. For single threaded applications, the human mind is just as efficient as Rust's lifetime system.
<kiwiirc> you use rust too?
<kiwiirc> is rust popular with nix ppl?
<multun> nix is a functional language, so it attracts a lot of haskell / caml / whatever people
<multun> and these people often do rust, which must be the most functinal-ish imperative language
<DigitalKiwi> a lot of the tweag people use rust/haskell/nix
<KarlJoad> I'm a Uni student, so I use whatever I need to. I regularly write C, Rust (Learning it right now), Haskell, SML, Java, Python3, and now, Nix.
<DigitalKiwi> the is rust
<kiwiirc> awesome
<KarlJoad> I wouldn't say that Rust is popular with Nix people, rather that people who use Nix like functional languages' super strong typing, and Rust is an imperative language that bridges the gap of functional's strong typing and imperative's straight-forward development.
<DigitalKiwi> *lisp has entered the chat*
<kiwiirc> ty
<KarlJoad> Yeah, but while most LISPs today are in the same imperative/functional niche as Rust, I know of few people who like the prefix-function/operator syntax.
<MichaelRaskin> Common Lisp is not a functional language. It is a language that just supports a ton of paradigms, including but not limited to first-class functions.
<MichaelRaskin> (I like Common Lisp)

orivej has quit [Quit: No Ping reply in 180 seconds.]
<KarlJoad> I personally love LISP's very clear and expressive syntax. Much more so than Haskell, where people always try to get rid of parentheses.
<Athas> kiwiirc: I think there is some truth in that quote, as Nix allows you to handle complexity and poor packaging, rather than insist that bad or complex software is simplified.
<kiwiirc> the one comparing nixos to windows?
<Athas> Yes. This is why OpenBSD remains my favourite system, but it's not just practical. It's like a pristine jewel, and I find that its advantages disappear when you move away from the base system. NixOS scales much better with all the complexities of a modern desktop system.
<kiwiirc> oh
<eta> Common Lisp is great
<kiwiirc> likewise re openbsd
<Athas> NixOS does address the complexity in a much more principled way than any other system, though, so the quote is only relevant if you are comparing NixOS to extremely puritanical systems.
<Athas> Also, comparing the number of packages on AUR and Nixpkgs is probably not fair.
<Athas> Nixpkgs is vetted and maintained, while the AUR is a collection of everyone's private stuff, with lots of dead and duplicate packages.
<Athas> There's lots of people maintaining their own unofficial Nix derivations that can be added to a NixOS system, a lot like AUR or Ubuntu's PPAs.
<MichaelRaskin> Maintenance attention varies across Nixpkgs, but indeed duplicates get noticed and merged
<kiwiirc> ah
<kiwiirc> did any of you come to linux/nixos from freebsd? if so, any quick onboarding (here's what's different) primers or tips?
<Athas> I maintain a program at my job, and it is present in AUR as four different packages.
<KarlJoad> Hey guys, how would I go about getting the path to my user's home directory for a home-manager module? I used `${config.users.users.<name>.home}` to try and get it, and I get the error "error: attribute 'users' missing", even though I have `config` as an argument to the home.nix function module.
<DigitalKiwi> did you use literally <name> or did you substitute your user name
<DigitalKiwi> and maybe that's 1 too many users
<KarlJoad> I substituted my username, no worries there.
<KarlJoad> When I run that same expression through the REPL, I get my path back though.
<KarlJoad> nix-repl> config.users.users.karl.home
<KarlJoad> "/home/karl"

<rycee> Hayden: It depends on the module. Some modules use lists when defining the `Service.Environment` field and in that case it should be possible to merge in more entries by assigning a list to the option. Unfortunately `sxhkd` is not one of those modules so I think the easiest would be to `mkForce` a value containing both the value set by the module and what you would like to set.

<dejvo> what is the difference between import bla.nix; and imports = [] ?
Guest37969 has quit [Quit: WeeChat 2.7.1]
<symphorien> the first takes an arbitrary nix file and evaluates it, the second is only for nixos modules
<dejvo> is tehre a way to pass inherit into imports = []?
<symphorien> can you elaborate ?
sunova has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
<dejvo> I have a nixos file that is using a variable that I defien in let in in the main file
<dejvo> but I want to import the second file that is using it
<dejvo> so import "myfile.nix" { inherit region; };
<symphorien> declare a nixos option and assign the variable to the option
<symphorien> then use in the second module
<dejvo> actually that file is not a module
<dejvo> just something I want to include
<symphorien> a then make the file a function taking the value as an argument
<symphorien> then (import foo.nix) evaluates as the function, and you have to call it with the value
<dejvo> how to call it? so I have a bunch of stuff (define packages, open port) in foo.nix
<dejvo> I do import foo.nix?
<symphorien> if foo.nix contains the text "x: x+1" then import foo.nix 1 evaluates to 2
<symphorien> because import foo.nix evaluate to x: x + 1

<dejvo> oh ok, so there is a way to include a file?

<symphorien> no. nix is a functional language so everything has to be a value

<symphorien> a function, an attrset, an integer, you name it, but a value
<dejvo> ok, I need more reading as I do not understand that
<dejvo> I have a foo.nix which says open a port portX
<dejvo> and main.nix which say let portX = 1337 in bla bla imprort foo.nix
<dejvo> but says portX doesn't exist
<dejvo> even if I put { portX }: at top of foo.nix
<symphorien> then foo.nix is a function

<dejvo> that import foox.nix is in the top file or in "let ... in ... import"?
<symphorien> `let foo in import ./foo.nix { inherit portX;}` is a short-hand for `let foo in import [snip the content of foo.nix here] {inherit portX; }`

<dejvo> I want to call it?
<symphorien> ah sorry:

orivej has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
<symphorien> I don't don't know what you are trying to do so it's hard to answer
<dejvo> so let's say my foo.nix has: networking.firewall.allowedTCPPorts = [ portX ];
<symphorien> that's not a value
<dejvo> I want to do let portX = 1337 in import ./foo.nix
<dejvo> hm
<symphorien> put it in braces and suddenly it's an attrset
orivej has joined #nixos
acarrico has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
<symphorien> but if you are setting nixos options, you are better off writing a module
<cole-h> dejvo: That won't work as you think it will. It only binds portX to the value 1337 in the scope of the `in`, but it doesn't get passed to the import.
<dejvo> okay I did but still cannot import it
<dejvo> yeah I want to pass it to import :)
<dejvo> that's what I am trying
<cole-h> So you'll need to do what you did earlier and have `{ portX }:` at the top of foo.nix
<dejvo> ok ok, so now I have a function right?
<cole-h> And then you can do `let portX = 1337; in import ./foo.nix { inherit portX; }`

<dutchie> how do people typically keep /etc/nixos/configuration.nix under version control? I don't really want to be running git as root all the time, and it'd be nice to have it all in the same repo with my home-manager config
<manveru> dutchie: symlink to your home then :)
<MtotheM> an easy way to get around that is by symlinking into your nixOS repo
<MtotheM> this way you can just change the link to swap configs too
<MtotheM> `ln -s /path/to/repo/configuration.nix /etc/nixos/configuration.nix`
<MtotheM> Or maybe it's the other way around. i don't recall
<{^_^}> [nixos-hardware] @bbigras opened pull request #174 → add xps 13 (9343) →
<manveru> no, that's right :)
orivej has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
orivej has joined #nixos
<MichaelRaskin> Advanced way is -I nixos-config=…
<clever> i prefer to have configuration.nix outside of revision control, it only does boot and fs related stuff, and imports = [ /path/to/repo/configuration.nix ];
<clever> if the disk is lost and i have to re-install, the boot and fs stuff will be different anyways
<clever> and this lets me have 2 identical installs, without the different UUID's causing a conflict in git
<MtotheM> you don't have to include the hardware information. since it can be auto generated
<clever> MtotheM: but you must reference that generated file, in the main configuration.nix
<clever> MtotheM: also, bootloader stuff isnt in the auto-generated file
<MtotheM> sure, but you can make everything into modules. that's how I do my things.
<clever> yeah
<clever> thats why my config forms a tree, with hostname.nix at one end, and core.nix at the other end
<clever> all hostnames eventually lead to core.nix
<clever> and its sort of 2 trees weaved together
<clever> multiple starting points (hostnames), one ending point (core.nix) and many dead-end leaves (large features)
<xantoz> you could always recreate using the same UUIDs or maybe use labels instead of UUIDs
<MtotheM> I like grouping things by what they bring to the table. like `gaming.nix` brings in steam, opengl, retroarch and those things.
<MtotheM> So if I want to do that on a system I just import it.
<clever> this file for example, will pull in plex, set plex to run on login, and sets sddm to auto-login
<clever> and it runs plex in tv mode, so the UI expects you to only have ~6 buttons
<asymmetric> if i set dontBuild = true, then how can i still run tests in the checkPhase?
<clever> asymmetric: that just means it wont run the buildPhase, and skip right to the next phase in the list
<asymmetric> iiuc dontBuild = true means that `foundMakefile = 0` in
<asymmetric> so checkPhase will exit early
<clever> asymmetric: it will just skip running buildPhase
<clever> asymmetric: and lines 1261-1264 is the default phase list
<asymmetric> this is set in buildPhase right?
codygman has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
<clever> asymmetric: yeah, line 1015
codygman has joined #nixos
<clever> so its not that it sets it to 0, but rather, it doesnt set it to 1
codygman has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
<clever> so you need another phase to set it to 1, or just `buildPhase = "export foundMakefile=1"`
codygman has joined #nixos
<asymmetric> right, thx that worked
<asymmetric> is this kind of coupling between the two phases desired?
<clever> not sure
<clever> i dont really use the checkPhase much

<clever> the only packages ive really delt with that have tests, are haskell based

<Raito_Bezarius> I'm using and the kpxe for BIOS and efi for the UEFI
<Raito_Bezarius> (on a KVM guest)

<MtotheM> I personally want to learn how to do the '.enable' pattern though
<clever> MtotheM: one sec...
<MtotheM> Cause having files that you import is all nice and good. but it's easy to over declare them
<clever> MtotheM: this defines a custom option, programs.vim.fat, and then it uses the value to decide if youcompleteme should be enabled
<MtotheM> having a pattern like `gaming.steam.enable` would give a more clear and easy to read file in the end
<clever> MtotheM: but you can also do `config = mkIf config.gaming.steam.enable { ... };` to do more complete on/off
<MtotheM> yeah I will look into that.

<jD91mZM2> Okay so from what I now understand, doing `nix-env -i` will create a user profile in some cases if you don't have one. But your ~/.nix-profile link made Nix think you wanted to use an existing profile, which caused issues because it was empty of generations to build on
<LambdaDuck> Yeah, I installed a new package and then it created both the symlink and the directory with symlinks in it
<LambdaDuck> Oh, right. The old symlink was actually wrong. It pointed to /nix/var/nix/profiles/per-user/anka and not to /nix/var/nix/profiles/per-user/anka/profile. Not sure how that happened.

<energizer> silverblue is a month old, maybe nobody's tried it
<jtojnar> it is a bit older than a month (it was called atomic workstation before)
o1lo01ol1o has joined #nixos
<energizer> are you a developer kiwiirc?
<jtojnar> or something like that
<energizer> using nixos basically requires you to write software. if that's not your style then another option would be better
<kiwiirc> ya i am
<prusnak> i would say that silverblue is similar to android/macos in some regards
<prusnak> you have immutable OS, that is meant not to be tinkered with
<kiwiirc> i didn't look closely into it but some are talking about silverblue like it's the future of linux
<prusnak> and you install "apps" into it
<energizer> what's the sandboxing situation in silverblue?
<energizer> nixos doesn't really have an app sandboxing story like the mobile oses do
<prusnak> with nixos you can tinker with everything by changing the definitions
<prusnak> and once you are satisfied with them you rebuild the whole world according to the recipe
<jtojnar> energizer it relies on flatpak a lot
<prusnak> energizer: silverblue uses flatpak
<energizer> does flatpack have restrictions on where apps can write to?
<energizer> and read from
<energizer> or is it just a packaging format? i'm not very familiar
orivej has quit [Ping timeout: 265 seconds]
<energizer> oh
<energizer> nice. nixos is extremely missing that feature
<prusnak> flatpak has "portals" - framework for providing access to resources outside of the sandbox
<prusnak> afaik you can use apparmor with nixos
fpob has quit [Quit: ZNC 1.7.2+deb3 -]
<energizer> nixos does have a firejail option, but i haven't talked to anyone using it (idk why)
<prusnak> but not a lot of packages contain apparmor definitions out of the box
fpob has joined #nixos
<jtojnar> from what I gathered, silverblue is more consumer oriented and does not lend itself to tweaking
<jtojnar> NixOS offers you great hackability since it is basically a set of tools you use to build your own system
<jtojnar> energizer and you can also use flatpak on nixos :-D
<energizer> also, "NixOS offers you great hackability" because it doesn't have application sandboxing on :P
<prusnak> silverblue is going to a restaurant to have a dinner
<prusnak> nixos is cooking your own dinner

<prusnak> food in the restaurant might be good, but not might be for everyone
<prusnak> your own food might not be great, but it might be also very yummy, depending on how much you like to read cooking books and practicing cooking

<samueldr> it could be that one of the folder disallows traversing in your chosen path
<prusnak> kiwiirc: capabilities are kernel mechanism; this permissions are flatpak specific and are more similar to android permissions
<samueldr> a folder's +x mode bits is what allows that user/group/other to traverse the path
<prusnak> flatpak/android permissions can be implemented using kernel capabilities though

<energizer> mtn: idk how services.uwsgi.instance works
<b42> nmtui-connect is easy to use but the minimal installer doesn't have networkmanager
<energizer> mtn: might start by looking at the service file it creates
<karetsu> note that `nix-shell -p mopidy mopidy-youtube` (for example) picks up the module for use, but specification in environment.systemPackages doesn't find them
<mtn> energizer: How can I do that?
<happyfishes> hmm, but it could only residue on installation medium. Anyway, such tools are nice addition for people who just want to use system without too much configuration and custom scripts

<sheeldotme> Looks like I was overwriting the working directory, $src did not contain the patched files.
