Revert "nixos/gnome3: launch gnome-shell wayland with RT scheduling" #99147

wants to merge 1 commit into from

Motivation for this change

This reverts commit 927a6fd.


That commit adds support for an experimental feature that is disabled by default and has caused multiple people to waste hours debugging. To quote the author of the commit:

I've kinda forgot about the issue, but we should probably disable the wrapper for now since it breaks things (would be nice to get into 20.09). Regardless of our understanding the underlying issue, it's a fairly minor feature which probably aren't used by many people (especially since it's not enabled by default).

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Fits

^ can we add an option? I actually use this feature, and it's possible some people from unstable still want it.

I would also like to backport to 20.09.

I also can't reproduce one of the bugs for TZDIR #86730 (comment). This could either mean, this actually is working as expected since we know that LD_LIBRARY_PATH is going to be dropped by design, or that it's just broken (or my setup isn't correct) and why I can't reproduce.
