So I am setting up nix in a docker alpine image. Basic reason is to use it as part of jenkins slave node and use nix-shell for encapsulating testing dependencies.
Anyway doing a quick test of a nix-shell -p python36 and well we are compiling everything, and it is of course taking a while, I know why of course, glibc vs musl libc. My question is there a way to alleviate this time. Install glibc though apk perhaps, or maybe as part of the image build have nix install some packages to start to alleviate what might have to be compiled during the container run time when kicking off a nix shell.
