I’m confused what the difference is between
util-linux. I was trying to find out which package contains the
last binary today:
❯ readlink `which last` /nix/store/njjgnj2wiidsqc3cdrdd62sd9j8xbzp8-util-linux-2.36-bin/bin/last
Ok, so I look up the
util-linux pakage on search.nixos.org:
NixOS Search - Loading...
Indeed it tells me that the package is called
util-linux and can be accessed via the attribute
But then when I try
❯ nix-shell --pure -p util-linux error: undefined variable 'util-linux' at (string):1:94 (use '--show-trace' to show detailed location information)
What gives? Somehow I discovered that the correct attribute is
nixpkgs.utillinux. Why is search.nixos.org wrong here? Why the discrepancy?
