Motivation for this change
Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • [N/A] 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
Remaining work

This PR is in a draft state primarily because I have not yet tested that NixOS's stage-1 bootloader still works. Although this is a fairly simple extraction of code from one place to another, it is critical that this be fully tested before it is merged.

  • Test that NixOS stage-1 bootloader still works identically to before
  • Add package metadata for find-libs
  • Decide whether find-libs is the correct name for this

What is the use case for this? Note there are other tools like ldd-tree if you just want to use it as a tool.

I built this tool using it:

I'd be very happy to know if there's a better way to do that, though!
