Native NixOS for Windows?

Hey @Qubeo did this help at all?

also i am using WSL 2 on my spectre with ubuntu as @AshantiMutinta suggested and it has been smooth so far with holonix :+1:

i’m using it to review the docs right now :slight_smile:

it might be worth recommending this as the best path forward for serious development (e.g. not a “simple hackathon setup”)

Hi, thank you for your reply!

Turns out that it worked when I removed the whole stack and installed the versions linked from the guide - it looks like an update of one of the parts (Vagrant or VirtualBox) caused the problem.

Yeah, that makes sense.

In the end I got so frustrated that I finally installed Ubuntu in a dual boot alongside Windows.

It seems to be working so far :slight_smile:

Thank you for your help!

haha yeah, it looks like for a lot of people the path of least resistance is just “somehow ubuntu”

this is totally fine, have fun!

Going to give this a go on my windows box. Could be nice to get it into the quick start.

i made a rough chart of the different ways that windows can be setup with colour coding by how reliable and easy they are to setup and maintain over time

@freesig FYI ^^

NIce this is great

Holonix NixOS running on WSL2, node test failed. Is it my fault?

@Wladoo nope, not your fault, try again with latest versions of everything :slight_smile:

Yes, it is OK :crossed_fingers:
