<pie__> is there something like build-vm that will build an independent vm? i want to be able to run nix stuff in the vm
<pie__> doesnt even need to be independent really i just want a vm set up with the config and working tooling...I dont need to be able to rebuild
<qyliss> I'm not sure I understand the question
<MichaelRaskin> I guess the point is that build-vm mounts host store bia 9p
<MichaelRaskin> And independent would not need it?
<pie__> well to illustrate, id like to be able to run nixos-option
<qyliss> MichaelRaskin: btw I forgot to say last time when we were talking about upstreaming the Chromium stuff
<pie__> and build-vm isnt set in a way that that works
<pie__> *isnt set up
<qyliss> I did actually open some PRs, but then nobody reviewed them
<qyliss> So, if you do want to see that stuff upstream, a review would be most helpful :)
<MichaelRaskin> Ah right, some people believe in strict review standards no matter how impossibly optimistic they are
<pie__> so, well, i want to be able to test eerything in my vm
<MichaelRaskin> build-vm stuff actually works fine for me, at least with Qemu
<qyliss> MichaelRaskin: my review standards are "I would like there to have been one"
<qyliss> (Thank you :))
<MichaelRaskin> Yes, this _is_ impossibly optimistic for committer-authored PRs
<qyliss> yeah...
<qyliss> I have a good few committers in here, though
<qyliss> So my hope is that if I post them in here once in a while that might result in a review
<MichaelRaskin> Well, technically, as a committer you might be satisfied by an attentive enough review from a noncommitter
<qyliss> That too
<qyliss> I think I got a non-committer review on one of them, and then I merged it
<qyliss> The one that didn't actually get me anywhere :P
<MichaelRaskin> I should create a repo with tags that are valid as literal commit IDs, preferably present in the same repo
<qyliss> lol
<MichaelRaskin> For bonus points, I should probably host it on GitHub under username and repo name also being valid commit IDs.
<MichaelRaskin> (And there should be no master branch, that goes without saying)

<tazjin> MichaelRaskin: you'd certainly run into issues with some of my stuff - https://github.com/google/nixery/blob/93ec101c604b76b481e31e230fd997fa85472bee/config/pkgsource.go#L56 :]
<qyliss> Latest crosvm-demo commit exposes the host entropy pool to the guest as a hardware rng device
<qyliss> Pretty cool use of virtio IMO
<qyliss> Without it the VM starts up starved of entropy, which I noticed when trying to generate keys for SSH in a service
<qyliss> (crosvm-demo is a branch of the spectrum nixpkgs tree: https://spectrum-os.org/git/nixpkgs/?h=crosvm-demo)
<MichaelRaskin> entropy sharing is nice
<qyliss> Wish Google would fix http://cros-omahaproxy.appspot.com/ :(
<qyliss> I haven't been able to run my updateScript for the Google stuff for like a week
