If I’m not misreading the release notes, since 2.10.0 nix should run even if /nix is not available and use .local/share/nix/root
I’m trying to install nix 2.12.0 without using sudo, but the installer keeps asking for sudo password.
I was unable to find documentation about this scenario.
Did I misunderstand something about the non /nix configuration?
You do not need the installer for the portable usage.
Just use a prebuilt
nix from the release page.
I’m not sure to understand your suggestion, can you elaborate a bit please.
Does not work, since the shared libraries are not found.
is not enough, maybe because the distribution is old (ubuntu 20.04 with glibc 2.31).
I’ve compiled a static nix and it “works”, but not enough to successfully complete
nix develop for a small python project of mine.
