I am trying to run a vendored executable under NixOS on a Raspberry Pi 4. The executable is
node (NodeJS) and I cannot replace it with the NodeJS from NixOS (it’s provided by Visual Studio Code; see context below).
Here’s what happens when I try to run the
$ ./node zsh: no such file or directory: ./node
What I found so far:
I can confirm that the file exists and has the executable flag:
$ stat ./node Access: (0555/-r-xr-xr-x) Uid: ( 1001/ me) Gid: ( 100/ users)
I also found that the linker cannot find
$ ldd ./node | grep 'not found' libstdc++.so.6 => not found
So, I tried to provide the library via
$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/nix/var/nix/profiles/system/sw/lib ldd ./node | grep 'not found'
The library was no longer missing, however, the error didn’t go away:
$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/nix/var/nix/profiles/system/sw/lib ./node zsh: no such file or directory: ./node
Surprisingly, I found that I can actually run the executable like this:
$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/nix/var/nix/profiles/system/sw/lib /nix/store/6diwpjpcjz497wxwj4mdbfg8hl1hi8l2-glibc-2.32/lib/ld-linux-aarch64.so.1 ./node Welcome to Node.js v12.14.1. Type ".help" for more information. >
Unfortunately, this solution does not solve my problem. I need a solution where this
node binary is executable as is from the shell (without the weird ld-linux invocation).
Any suggestions on what can be done here would be super welcome
Context: I am trying to use Visual Studio Code’s remote SSH feature to edit files on my Raspberry Pi 4 (running NixOS) remotely.
The Raspberry Pi runs NixOS (nixos-21.03pre254279.6f0c00907bb).
Repro steps: I run vscode on a Ubuntu machine. Then I tell vscode to connect to RPi. It successfully logs into the RPi via ssh and also successfully downloads its vendored aarch64 vscode-server distribution into the following folder:
However, vscode then tries to execute the
node binary in that folder:
which results in a failure with the following message:
zsh: no such file or directory:~/.vscode-server/bin/e5a624b788d92b8d34d1392e4c4d9789406efe8f/node
Apologies for the length and thank you in advance for all your help!
