I am using the minimal 22.05 ISO + graphical installer (nice!). A hardware PC and good internet connection behind corp proxy
Firefox works no problem etc. I can
But the installers complain about the internet (the minimal installer does seem to download a lot).
An earlier minimal installer worked no problem iirc.
Yeah, flaky internet. Just retry. And yes, the NixOS iso does not contain to much and is more like a netinstaller.
This might be the problem. Maybe your nix-daemon doesn’t have the proxy settings? Try this here: roaming laptop: network proxy configuration · Issue #27535 · NixOS/nixpkgs · GitHub
I followed the instructions in the link, it doesn’t help in my case.
Interestingly some modules do download at the beginning (maybe 2) but it seems to get stuck on a module.
I see the installer is trying to connect to hepta.kde.org. Unsure whether this is a factor.
I got it working by running the installer from the CLI:
calamares. Must be a bug.
Now the installer GUI looks stuck. I hope it’s building in the background (CPUs are doing something, I cannot see any other feedback).
I ran into what I suspect are other proxy-related problems with the official installer.
But I found this which is an excellent alternative:
It leans into the NixOS way of configuring things. I will avoid official installers from now on in favour of this technique.
