Thanks @emmanuelrosa … is there a way to make the change you suggested and apply it while still booted up in the 22.11 Gnome LiveCD? I just completed the install from the Live CD, and I am hoping to make the change you suggested and do a nixos-rebuild switch prior to rebooting.
I did find what I think is the newly installed system under /tmp/calamares-root-hb5363y7 and changed the configuration.nix I found in there. But I don’t know how to rebuild with this new config file while in the LiveCD environment.
@emmanuelrosa OK I can do that, but how do I ensure that the nixos-rebuild uses the configuration.nix that’s in /tmp/calamares-root-hb5363y7/etc/nixos/ (the installed OS) and not the one that is in /etc/nixos/ (the LiveCD environment) ?
I also have an XPS 9520! Been a while since I did a fresh NixOS install, but I know that there are some issues when not using the latest kernel. boot.kernelPackages = pkgs.linuxPackages_latest
You can probably either manage to get to a tty (ctrl-alt-f[3-6]) or don’t reboot after install and edit in chroot (nixos-enter) and then rebuild.
Thanks @Pamplemousse I have tried various combinations of things from nixos-hardware as well as the NixOS wiki to no avail. The result ends up being a black screen with a blinking cursor and X Windows doesn’t start.
Works fine if I just use latest kernel and intel chipset video w/o Nvidia. Although most of my Steam games don’t work with the Intel video.
I’ve been using a 9520 for ~3months now and it works well with the 9500 nixos-hardware module. I had trouble with the nvidia card but got it working using the latest kernel packages from master branch. 6.0.11 is what my current kernel version is
Hey guys. I’m having the same problem too. But the last line that appears in my boot is Starting Update is completed and Finished Update is Completed
After that it freeze, Caps locks works, but it doesn’t leave that screen anymore.
I tried to edit /temp/calamares-root-Xxxxxx/configuration.nix adding boot.kernelPackages = pkgs.linuxPackages_latest; and run nixos-rebuild switch. But it did not work. Any ideas?
