Just wanted to let you know that I’m fairly new to NixOS and just starting out on my journey.
I’m interested in creating a Nix system that boots from USB and runs with all data in RAM so that I can remove the USB stick during run. Maybe even
/nix/store could also live in RAM, possibly as a unionfs of a squashfs base and a writable top filesystem.
I’ve heard about the
copytoram boot parameter and also found some helpful information on how to customize an image for booting from a USB flash drive. Can anyone provide further guidance or advice on how to achieve this? Thanks in advance!
