Talk: Nix Installation Guide

From NixOS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I have just added a clarifying header that refers back to more official documentation here, because I had a first-time user follow the instructions on this page to install Nix.

I think it's a better idea to first follow the instructions in the official docs and resort to this wiki to fill the gaps.

IMO Nix has a bit of a problem with documentation being so fragmented and I think linking relevant official sources is a good measure to take for improving that situation.

Let me know what you think about this.

Can anyone explain better how to achieve a root-less installation method? I haven't been able to use "nix 2.0" installation method or anything similar, as nix installer doesn't seem to support it.

I have started to use nix-portable, but that doesn't appear here, although deprecated/unmaintained nix-user-chroot seems to be present.
