    NixOS module for NVIDIA Jetson devices

    It's more doable on NixOS than on most distros, but the real problem is you're trying to run out-of-tree code. The world isn't going to stop for you (or for all the android devices) so it becomes mainline or GTFO. On reflection I think this is a good thing, despite it meaning I can't play with nvidia things. AMD APUs are good enough these days.

    Nix Packages collection & NixOS

    I wanted luks encrytion and TPM features (requiring systemd-boot) and swap and hibernate. Hibernate and swap w/zfs are right out unfortunately.


    I'm quite a zfs advocate so it's a bitter pill, but for laptop use its reasonable. btrfs seems fine, if a little limp.
