Set of expressions to run
angr on Nix/NixOS.
Many packages in
angr's dependency tree are not available in past releases.
In consequence, it is necessary to use the
unstable channel (more info about channels).
unstable may lag behind the
master branch of NixOS/nixpkgs (see status.nixos.org);
In that case, if you cannot wait for it, you can always use a local fork of
This repository has been made part of the Nix User Repository (see details, documentation, and installation guide).
With NUR set-up,
angr can be made available to a
nix-shell with the following:
nix-shell -p 'python3.withPackages(ps: with ps; [ nur.repos.angr.python3Packages.angr ])'
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:angr/nixpkgs.git angr-nixpkgs export ANGR_NIXPKGS="$(pwd)" nix-shell --arg ANGR_NIXPKGS_PATH "$ANGR_NIXPKGS"
- For a more "persistent" solution, add
export ANGR_NIXPKGS="$(pwd)/angr-nixpkgs"to your shell configuration file.
- To stay up-to-date, you will have to fetch and rebase your local repository manually.
In all this, please keep in mind that angr is a large project being frantically worked on by a very small group of overworked students. It's open source, with a typical open source support model (i.e., pray for the best). 1
