nixos/programs/shell.nix: retain defexpr symlink #75060

wants to merge 1 commit into from

@ryan4729 ryan4729 commented Dec 5, 2019

Motivation for this change

Previously the script would delete and recreate ~/.nix-defexpr when it was a symlink

This is a PR against the 19.09 branch since the script was removed in master at 4e0d6a5

I would be interested to know how ~/.nix-defexpr is managed in master as well.

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 nix-review --run "nix-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
