Starting a new project: nix-fixed.
Goal is to create a nix-shell that has a more recent ghc.
For stability and maximum binary package support, it is recommended to
maintain custom changes on top of one of the channels,
git remote add channels https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs-channels.git
I'm missing context. This is supposed to be run inside a git
repository, but what repository would that be?
I'm seriously missing the point. Let's ask some questions.
- How do I know which package set I'm running (channels, nixpkgs).
- what does the nixpkgs-channels.git look like? what is the
difference between that and nixpkgs.git?
