tvix: warnings when running home-manager build

#78
Opened by unknown at 2020-11-22T22·33+00

Running home-manager with tvix as the system nix implementation results in some warnings being printed while building the home derivation.

[multi@whitby:~]$ home-manager build -A whitby
I20201122 22:28:29.315966 54134 shared.cc:302] unrecognised flag '--quiet'
I20201122 22:28:29.316016 54134 shared.cc:303] Try 'nix-build --help' for more information.
/nix/store/myq5s829ighw8mfmf3szxaw4z9qh2rrw-home-manager-generation
/home/multi/.nix-profile/bin/home-manager: line 127: /tmp/home-manager-build.evnVtl2Ed0/news-info.sh: No such file or directory

This does, however, appear to build the derivation correctly, as a result symlink is created in the current working directory, and activating the derivation appears to also work correctly.

  2. The "unrecognised flag" warning seems to be a result of d0c44425e147ab7d38410f400825ad20da15037b, which was part of the series of commits which replaced upstream nix's logging library with glog.
