Hello everyone, tl;dr: If you have a macOS computer with Nix, please test my new installer! Remember, if you don't like the daemon, it is easy to uninstall again, and go back to without a daemon! Please test! Link at the end.
I wrote an extensive, thorough, and almost always correct installer for Darwin (macOS.) There is no middle point of having a single-user Nix installation. It doesn't use the default single-user nix install.sh, instead I read the source to the single-user installer, nixos-install, and the various NixOS modules that handle installing and configuring Nix on NixOS. While the script works flawlessly for me every time I use it, I'd very much like to have other experienced Nix users test it, before inflicting it upon newbies. Note: You have to uninstall any nix already installed, prior to testing the installer. The installer guides you on how to do this. Remember, at the end it is easy to uninstall again, and go back to without a daemon! Please test! Thus far no user has run in to a problem they couldn't easily fix, and every time the installer was updated to account for it. I'm tracking successfull installations here: https://gitlab.com/grahamc/mac-nix-multi-user/issues/2 Here is an issue discussing replacing the Darwin installer with this script: https://github.com/NixOS/nix/issues/1061#issuecomment-313850400 TLDR Here is the installer, please test: https://gitlab.com/grahamc/mac-nix-multi-user/blob/master/install.sh Thank you, Graham _______________________________________________ nix-dev mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://mailman.science.uu.nl/mailman/listinfo/nix-dev
