@kravemir @davisrichard437 Apparent comments in a tech project are so destructive to the harmony that it is something that could be part of the armoury of a very effective cyber attack by a state or corporate actor seeking to jam up FOSS. Agree that is so good it threatens corporations like Apple long-term. But I think that the problems are due to people so loving & their investment in it & being unable to put aside differences in value systems while collaborating.

"there is no moral difference taking money from Anduril or from Microsoft. Microsoft has had multi-billion dollar Pentagon and other agency contracts for many years now, and the things they produce are used wherever the U.S. Government wants to use them, including as tools for war and border control."

Hello, and pros!

Could you help me please?
Why does my nixos-rebuild switch fail? It fails on the very end, after all the building and evaluating is done, when starting suid-sgid-wrappers.service.

HOWEVER, here’s the weird part: build-vm works!! The vm boots and everything! If the vm works, why does switch fail?

Any tips?

I would gladly pay a small fee to such a site to test for me and others who have chipped in. Testing can be done with a standard configuration.nix so the results should be fast and easy to share and replicate. nixos has so so many crowd sharing foss advantages.

@rain If someone contributes openly to open source using their actual true identity, should that be discouraged by frightening off those whose employment or backgrounds or posts do not suit our world view?

If you're paranoid about your system having xz-5.6.1 cooties, you might run:

nix-store --query --referrers \
$(ls /nix/store|grep 'xz-5.6.1$'|xargs realpath|tr '\n' ' ')

... should print all packages that refer to any xz-5.6.1 on the system. Probably wanna run a nix-collect-garbage -d first.

Alternately use 'nix run "nixpkgs#nix-tree"' press / to search for xz-5.6.1 and navigate to one, then press "w" for why-depends.

Is there enough interest to:
(1) establish a good set of standard nixOS configurations configuration.nix
(2) test each of them on new that comes out
so we have information about compatibility?
Surely nixOS is a perfect tool for testing hardware and so on.
Is there any possibility of a funded action? Monthly subscription? Does this already exist? Or could we just ask known to "slap in and boot an image" which runs the standard tests, reports to url, basta.

@lgehr Well it a bit like an personalised configurable Apple linux ... because it works and if you change computer you can get the exact same setup back again even if you set the settings five years ago... It is ideal even for a beginner because you can start on a cheap machine & if you like it upgrade to serious hardware without any time overhead. It is for me a simpler Linux because all my setup information in in one place and I do not need to rely on notes on how I got to where I am.
