NixOS on ARM/Scaleway C1

NixOS historically had some support[1] to work on Scaleway C1 servers. It may be possible to boot a C1 server using the approach described in Install NixOS on Scaleway X86 Virtual Cloud Server.

At the time of writing (Dec 2017), that servers does not boot the NixOS kernel, although boot the kernel from http://mirror.scaleway.com/kernel/armv7l/4.9.67-mainline-rev1/ using instructions from Install_NixOS_on_Scaleway_X86_Virtual_Cloud_Server with the only difference in tags: instead of X86's:

KEXEC_KERNEL=/boot/nixos-kernel
KEXEC_INITRD=/boot/nixos-initrd
KEXEC_APPEND=init=/boot/nixos-init

There should be

KEXEC_KERNEL=http://mirror.scaleway.com/kernel/armv7l/4.9.93-mainline-rev1/zImage
KEXEC_INITRD=/boot/nixos-initrd
KEXEC_APPEND=init=/boot/nixos-init


It is to be investigated the difference between those kernels.
