@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasaurGNU hello only takes 118.3KB12:32:18
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasaursince it has no dependencies12:32:25
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasaurI guess you should also count Nix itself, but I'm guessing that it's not huge12:33:46
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasaur yeah nix (2.18.1) and all its dependencies (including transitive) are only 217.2MB total 12:34:37
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasaurand that includes bash, python3, curl, sqlite, and a LOT of libraries12:36:37
@albertdekoninck:matrix.orgAlbert Kroonsno i mean't Nix itself & 217Mb seems reasonable13:00:59
@albertdekoninck:matrix.orgAlbert KroonsAnd deinstalling is simply as removing the volume making it's size reusable for the other volume's of the apfs container & removing the Launchdemon13:02:43
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasaurjust to be clear, that is just the size of the Nix binary and its dependencies. I'm not an expert on the internals of Nix, so it's possible there are other files that take up space as well13:02:55
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasauri just don't want to accidentally mislead you13:03:00
@albertdekoninck:matrix.orgAlbert Kroons * And deinstalling is simply as removing the volume making it's size reusable for the other volume's of the apfs container & removing the Launchdemon, right ?13:03:01
@albertdekoninck:matrix.orgAlbert Kroonsi understnd what you mean but thanks for the warning :)13:05:13
@albertdekoninck:matrix.orgAlbert Kroonsbut i think it's acceptable & forgive easely 13:05:50

uh if you are doing a multi-user install (which you should be), there is also a nixbld group and a bunch of _nixbld users that you'll want to remove
13:06:07
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasaurNix does come with an uninstaller, which is what i would use13:06:16
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasauruhh actually the default installer might not come with an uninstaller but the Determinate Systems installer does13:07:16
@albertdekoninck:matrix.orgAlbert Kroonsow nice, leving that group & users doesn't really hurt though, i guesh, does it ?13:07:25
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasaurnope13:07:32
@albertdekoninck:matrix.orgAlbert Kroonsbeause i still have quiet a few unused groups & users on my MacOS as it has been updated since 10.1 on13:08:15
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasaurThe Determinate Systems installer is here, btw: https://install.determinate.systems . It's fairly similar to the official installer (as i understand it) but makes some choices for ease of use13:08:55
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasaurI honestly don't know enough about the differences to recommend one over the other, but I have heard from others that the Determinate installer is good and don't recall anyone having complaints with it13:09:41
@samasaur:matrix.orgsamasaurperhaps someone else in this room could offer more information here13:09:52
@albertdekoninck:matrix.orgAlbert Kroonsthey are free & most welcome to share their knowledge13:13:27
@albertdekoninck:matrix.orgAlbert KroonsIs this corret, found on wikipedia, Nix instald prebuild binaies/packages, it doesn't deliver src & bui:d locally ?13:43:26

@k900:0upti.meK900 ⚡️It can do both13:43:51
@albertdekoninck:matrix.orgAlbert Kroonsok,needs o be changed at wikipedia then13:44:20
@k900:0upti.meK900 ⚡️There's a binary cache that contains prebuilt binaries, keyed by store path13:44:23
@k900:0upti.meK900 ⚡️But if you're building something that's not in the cache, or have the cache disabled, it will rebuild from source13:44:43
