Hi Chris, For a symlink from the nix store into /etc you would need to use writeText to write a file with the contents (I'm assuming empty string) and then use environment.etc to link that file into /etc; however this would be immutable and swaylock would not be able to modify this file if done

[Nix-dev] Sway window manager nix package

2017-07-10 Thread Chris Duncan via nix-dev
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.
