Thanks to lwn pointing me to NixOS I decided to test drive using VirtualBox. I
was quite impressed how much was available and how smooth my experience has
I am puzzleed that runnig
nix-env -i eclipse-sdk-4.4
works fine, but I was unable to add it /etc/nixos/configuration.nix with lines
Similarly I was surprised that nix-env -i kdepim needed a item called
pkgs.kde4.kdepim in /etc/nixos/configuration.nix.
Could anybody point give me an explanation or point me to where I find one for
this behaviour? I did not find one under https://nixos.org/wiki/FAQ,
http://nixos.org/nix/manual/ nor http://nixos.org/nixpkgs/manual/.
