@peanutbutter144 If that’s the case then something changed for sure.
If almost everything is affected then some core package was updated (maybe a security fix in SSL) and now that change must be propagated through the system to make it reproducible.
That’s the trade‑off.
@kmicu hmm, ok. i guess ill leave it updating overnight tonight and see how it goes.
apart from this one issue, ive really liked nixos. but every now and then i wish i had chosen to use a more popular / lower maintenance distro...
@kmicu ok. i knew about the disk usage, thats mentioned somewhere easy to find on nixos.org but i didnt know about the amount of recompiling and network usage until i experienced it myself.
so i agree that nixos and guix should make that more prominent.
if the recompiles and full system re-download are as often as once a month, i might consider intalling a traditional distro instead, thats a bit top often for me i think...
