Nixos Installation Failures

I have the 19.03 release and keep getting the following failure when running nixos-install:

the option value ‘filesystems./boot.device’ in ‘/etc/nixos/hardware-configuration.nix’ is not a null or string (with check: non-empty)

I have tried on a laptop and a desktop system. In both cases using a Samsung 860-QVO SSD. Driving me nuts.

Please paste the configuration.nix file you modified under /mnt/etc/nixos/configuration.nix.

Sorry, I’m not sure how to get a copy of the config file. Can it be written to a usb stick?

After you partition your hard drive(s) you would have mounted to /mnt, etc… and then modified /mnt/etc/nixos/configuration.nix. You could pastebin this file, save to a usb, whatever works for you.

Thanks for your quick response. After I attempted another installation in order to send my configuration file, I finally realized that I had incorrectly mixed up the uefi and mbr steps. I successfully got Nixos installed with plasma, but am still running into other small difficulties. My goal is to use Nixos for dump1090, gqrx, and cubicsdr for software designed radio programs.
