I am new to Holochain development and wanted to get started tinkering around with it. I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 20 in a Virtual Machine.
I started with the tutorial (https://developer.holochain.org/docs/install/) the Nix package manager installed fine.
When using the one-liner to install Holonix I ran into my first problem when running the command:
$(nix-build https://holochain.love --no-link -A pkgs.holonix)/bin/holonix
No nix-shell is spawned and the output gives me following warning:
warning: the group 'nixbld' specified in 'build-users-group' does not exist
With a little tinkering around to fix the issue, I created a new user and added him to the nixbld group. I don’t know if this is the correct way because in the tutorial it isn’t mentioned to have a user in this group. If someone has a proper/other way of fixing the warning please let me know.
adduser --disabled-password --gecos '' docker adduser docker sudo echo '%sudo ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL' >> /etc/sudoers addgroup --system nixbld adduser docker nixbld
After trying the one-line again everything worked fine and the nix-shell spawned like expected.
[nix-shell:~]$ holochain --version holochain 0.0.100 [nix-shell:~]$ dna-util --version dna-util 0.0.1
Unfortunately, the “Hello Holo” tutorial (https://redux.developer.holochain.org/docs/tutorials/coreconcepts/hello_holo/) isn’t available yet for the RSM Holochain. Is there a equivalent available that I can take a look at to learn more from that? I have also tried to perform the old tutorial in the new Holochain RSM but it seems that the command “hc” is depreciated. Is there a new command for the “hc” command that I can use to perform the “Hello Holo” tutorial in the Holochain RSM?
