        I tried building nix, but the C++ library didn't support C++11 for some reason, depending on what you're trying to build you might run into similar difficulties
      • I don't know that much about how the whole thing works, but if you have any questions I'll answer them to the best of my ability :)

        sphalerite: I want to try 'https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/24229'

      • sphalerite: But that needs a kernel recompile, and this takes way to long on the rpi.
      • sphalerite
        Also: does anyone know why nix links using rpath rather than referring to absolute paths for the libraries?
      • tsmeets: that sounds scary :p good luck!

        sphalerite: haha :). I hope that that fixes some wifi issues.

        One option that might also be worth looking into is emulating the pi. Not sure how much better the performance would be, I don't know how much overhead cross-arch emulation has nowadays.

        sphalerite: building and then copying the package should work.
      • sphalerite
        Yes, if building the package works ^^

        sphalerite: thanks for the help.

        tsmeets: you could get a 96core monster from packet.net to do some trial builds on, not so expensive if you just get it for a couple hours

        how do I import with nix-store --import from the output of nix-store --export on another machine? It barfs with "lacks a signature"
      • gchristensen
        I think you need to import as root, ocharles?
      • jluttine
        oh, nvm, i can use fpm's own support
