Hello, I have recently started using NixOS 17.03 and am having fun getting to know it. I use the Sway window manager and wanted to make some changes to the current nix package.
I managed to upgrade to version 0.13.0 of Sway and build the swaylock application by including pam as a build input. There are two remaining issues that I am not sure how to solve: 1. swaylock did not recognise the password to unlock the screen. This was because there was no swaylock file created in the /etc/pam.d folder. When I created this file manually swaylock worked as I expected. Could anybody help me to understand what I need to do to get this file created during package installation? 2. When I display the Sway version with sway --version it returns 'sway version (1970-01-01, branch "")'. The difference between this output and that returned by the package already in nixpkgs is the date. Could anybody tell me how I can get a sensible date to show up in the version output? Any help with the above issues would be much appreciated. Please let me know if any further information is required. -- *Regards,* *Chris*
