Since #76542 this workaround is required to use a FQDN as hostname. See
#94011 and #94022 for the related discussion. Due to some
potential/unresolved issues (legacy software, backward compatibility,
etc.) we're documenting this workaround 0.

Status

nixos-rebuild works but I couldn't test the NixOS manual due to:

error: a 'aarch64-linux' with features {} is required to build '/nix/store/1pppcxbi7m74j52fziprdx5q6mp1n8rs-options-docbook.xml.drv', but I am a 'x86_64-linux' with features {benchmark, big-parallel, kvm, nixos-test}

Either there must be a regression or nix-build nixos/release.nix -A manual isn't the correct command anymore.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.

for the nixos manual, you need to specificy an architecture

nix-build nixos/release.nix -A manual.x86_64-linux
