Also boost is missing.

This package fails to build in a clean chroot because it is missing brotli as a dependency.

Apologies for the delay in updating. @shaugh I'm adding you now. Also, I have put the repo on github: People are welcome to do PRs for future updates. If you do, make sure to add yourself as a contributor in the PKGBUILD.

@asppsa, if you want to add me as co-maintainer I can keep the releases up to date. There's currently an OOD flag for v2.1.

urbanslug, try man nix-env. I don't think the nix command has a man page.

I've added armv7h (untested) to the list as requested. I couldn't access the links from AGTT, so I haven't added aarch64

I managed to compile on RaspBerry Pi 3B (aarch64) on ArchLinuxARM-aarch64 (, as well. I published my PKGBUILD for a single-user mode nix, along with my modifications (namely usage of -O0 instead of the default (-O3?)) at The PKGBUILD is named 'nix-2.0.1-7.rcp'. To build 'nix-2.0.1-7.rcp' these files would be required, in total (minimum): Makefile-mod nix-2.0.1-7.rcp

Such a command could be run: makepkg --syncdeps --needed -p 'nix-2.0.1-7.rcp'. See 'descr.txt' for details.

For version 2.0.2-1, please see

Running man nix gives "No manual entry for nix" so I guess the man pages aren't "build built".
