Error, While Trying Holochain Tools Setup

Hi, I got an error message while Install Holochain Tools. Three minutes after run “nix-shell https://holochain.love” command, the error message appears and the installation is interrupted.

“error: build of ‘/nix/store/7x70dgh5yj743lcdyahl9ywmf1518rqd-rust-1.38.0-nightly-2019-07-13-69656fa4c.drv’, ‘/nix/store/gq192dvrhi35i2cmkgxxa8qxvmjbzpi5-hc.drv’, ‘/nix/store/hzj1rmbm9a9yx2bz6cpwb5kw7bj5lfvv-trycp_server.drv’, ‘/nix/store/rk12y7hz68b5p8ba294nhq07dvw18di0-sim2h_server.drv’ failed”

Distro : Debian 9.7 on Digitalocean

Hey @yavuzsyildiz it looks like nix got interrupted. Does this happen if you try it again?

I did 5 times with 3 different machines, but same result.

Ok something must be broken on that linux for the sim2h_server build.
I’ve opened an issue for this.
An alternative approach while this is being fixed is cloning the holochain-rust repo and building from that.

git clone https://github.com/holochain/holochain-rust.git
cd holochain-rust
nix-shell
hc-conductor-install
hc-cli-install

Then you can run hc and holochain from that nix-shell.
This will build everything from source but hopefully we can find the issue and fix it soon anyway.
