Help to install vim (and others) in NixOS
#1
Hi All!

There is a NixOS image available for the pinecube. Coming across NixOS for the first time. I tried to install vim the way it is recommended e.g. here:
https://www.mpscholten.de/nixos/2016/04/...nixos.html

But when I try to switch to the new environment (hopefully this is what I am trying to do on NixOS Sad ), I get these
Code:
[root@nixos:/etc/nixos]# nixos-rebuild switch
warning: Nix search path entry '/nix/var/nix/profiles/per-user/root/channels/nixos' does not exist, ignoring

[root@nixos:/etc/nixos]#
Has anybody an idea how to fix this error?
