Hi there, I’ve been having issues with switching my build with flake. It just stopped working for me and I couldn’t not solve it
Basically running this command does nothing, shows newline and that’s it.
nix-shell -p nixUnstable --command "nix build --experimental-features 'nix-command flakes --show-trace' '.#desktop'"
Any ideas to debug this. Thanks
Is your current
nixUnstable or from
nixStable? By “does nothing”, did you check perhaps whether a
result symlink was created in the directory you ran the command?
My current nix is from
nixUnstable, here’s my nix config https://gist.github.com/tami5/83e142a65d32e0690ada4fce6dc544e6.
No, it doesn’t create that directory any more.
It is fixed now, there was an issue with some package failing to build
If you want to see why a package fails to build, you can use
nix build --print-build-logs (or
-L) which is not document (see this issue).
I’m also wondering why do you use
nix-shell if your
nix is supposed to be the
nixUnstable - why not use
nix build directly?
