Dotnet-script, not found

When I run dotnet-script, I get this error:

A fatal error occurred. The required library could not be found.
If this is a self-contained application, that library should exist in [/home/b0ef/.dotnet/tools/.store/dotnet-script/1.3.1/dotnet-script/1.3.1/tools/net6.0/any/].
If this is a framework-dependent application, install the runtime in the global location [/usr/share/dotnet] or use the DOTNET_ROOT environment variable to specify the runtime location or register the runtime location in [/etc/dotnet].

The .NET runtime can be found at:

This seems to be a known issue and listed here as resolved:

It says it’s merged into master on April 26th, so this should’ve been included in the channel I’m running, no?

No that change is not on stable.

ok, so master is basically head, but can I pull in that change without going to unstable?

Fork the repo, checkout stable, cherry-pick the commit, change your input to that, profit.

ok, this is far out, as I’ve started using nix like two weeks ago;) Anyways, I should focus on a flake?, like this: How do I apply a GitHub commit to my configuration.nix? - #3 by nrdxp

Oh, overread that you where still using channels. You can do that same thing with channels by adding a GitHub archive download link as as a new channel URL.

I wonder first if this commit is part of unstable, at this point? How can I check that?

It is in unstable when it was pushed by hydra to GitHub - NixOS/nixpkgs at nixos-unstable

Seems I’m wrong here, as that issue I linked to on Github is not the same issue I’m facing, so I’m back to square one.

find /nix/store/3axaxgbragp3zhb20i2swfqdwdnl1b3v-dotnet-sdk-6.0.300/ -iname "*fxr*"

ok, it works if I do this:

export DOTNET_ROOT=/nix/store/3axaxgbragp3zhb20i2swfqdwdnl1b3v-dotnet-sdk-6.0.300/

, but shouldn’t this be set by the installation of dotnet?

I installed dotnet-script non declarative, though:

dotnet tool install -g dotnet-script

Maybe it should’ve been installed declaratively? If so, how?:wink:

Checkout my dotfiles. You need dotnet.nix and dotnet-tool.nix from it. I packed dotnet-script for you, so you just need to add dotnet-script in the list of tools in dotnet.nix.

Note that my declarative global tool installation is super-experimental.
