We provide an
x86_64-linux build machine as a public remote builder for the nix community, this machine also has an
aarch64-linux machine configured as its own remote builder.
If you want access read the security guide lines on aarch64-build-box. Than add your username to
builder/users.nix. Don't keep any important data in your home! We will regularly delete
/home without further notice.
Using your NixOS home-manager configuration on the hosts
If you happen to have your NixOS & home-manager configurations intertwined but you'd like your familiar environment on our infrastructure you can evaluate
pkgs.writeShellScript "hm-activate" config.systemd.services.home-manager-<yourusername>.serviceConfig.ExecStart from your NixOS configuration, and send this derivation to be realized remotely: (in case you aren't a Nix trusted user)
# somehow get the .drv of the above expression into $path $ nix copy --to ssh://build01.nix-community.org --derivation $path $ ssh build01.nix-community.org $ nix-store -r $path $ $path
