I’ve been tinkering with trying to get VS Code Remote Containers to work with the official docker image. I’m wondering if anyone has had success with this? It appears that VSCode ships with its own
node version which, of course, doesn’t play well with Nix due to dynamic linking.
This is what I have so far:
FROM nixos/nix:2.8.0 # Install deps RUN nix-env -i ncurses glibc gcc ## Enable flakes RUN echo "experimental-features = nix-command flakes" >> /etc/nix/nix.conf # Fixes RUN mkdir /lib && \ ln -s "$(ls /nix/store/*glibc*/lib/ld-linux-aarch64.so.1 | tail -1)" /lib/ld-linux-aarch64.so.1 && \ echo "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$(find /nix/store -name libstdc++.so.6 | tail -1 | xargs dirname)" >> /etc/environment CMD /root/.nix-profile/bin/bash
The problem I’m running into is that I can’t get the VSCode to pick up the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH when it connects to the container and so
node complains about not finding
libstdC++. I feel like I’m close but I tried all sorts of locations to get the environment variable to get picked up (i.e. /profile, ~/.bashrc, etc) but I haven’t figured it out.
Note I am running on arm64, but I planned on cleaning it up to be platform agnostic once I got it working.
Any tips or pointers?
