Nats nsc package coming up as undefined variable

Hi all,

I’m attempting to use nix package nsc which does appear exist with support for x86_64, however it’s coming up as error: undefined variable 'nsc', and doesn’t appear when doing a search for it in repl. I am on nix (Nix) 2.13.2

nix-repl> :load <nixpkgs>
Added 18358 variables.

nix-repl> ns
ns-3           nsis           nspr           nssTools       nss_ldap       nssmdns        nsync
nsd            nsjail         nsq            nss_esr        nss_pam_ldapd  nsss           nsz
nsh            nsncd          nss            nss_latest     nss_wrapper    nsxiv
❯ nix-shell -p nsc
error: undefined variable 'nsc'

When I run nix search nixpkgs nsc it’s there


Is there something I’m missing here? Would appreciate any help. Cheers

Got past this original issue being that I was attempting to use 22.11 tagged release instead of master / unstable. That is able to work however requiring override for failing tests

Was able to get past the solution by setting config.allowBroken = true; and setting overrideAttrs to not run tests

    utils.lib.eachDefaultSystem (system:
        pkgs = import nixpkgs {
          inherit system;
          # needed to allow build of unstable nixpkg version - nixos-unstable (master)
          config.allowBroken = true;
          overlays = [
            (self: super: {
              nsc = super.nsc.overrideAttrs (old: {
                doCheck = false;
