In order to save disk space by reducing my store’s (
/nix/store/) disk usage, I’d like to use a single channel for both my system (whatever is used for
nixos-rebuild) and for my only (real) user’s
I’m not sure I got right what’s documented hence I’m asking here. Here’s some info of my current channels state:
$ sudo nix-channel --list nixos https://nixos.org/channels/nixos-unstable
Should I create a link from my user’s
roots? I.e to:
Should I edit
~/.nix-channels as well?
I haven’t tried any of these ideas because I don’t want to break anything.
BTW, while here, I was wondering: What’s the meaning of the symlink to
default-5-link in the profiles directory? I.e:
$ ls /nix/var/nix/profiles/ default default-5-link per-user system system-245-link
