I’m trying to build daedalus on NixOS (not with Nix only, but on an actual NixOS operating system), however I’m having a few difficulties. Basically, I followed these steps and executed the following:
# git clone https://github.com/input-output-hk/daedalus # cd daedalus
If I switch to branch release/0.11.1, I cannot build the wallet with the command presented in the previous article:
# git checkout release/0.11.1 # nix-env -f release.nix -iA daedalus error: attribute 'daedalus' in selection path 'daedalus' not found
However, if I use nix-build, then the wallet builds just fine:
# nix-build default.nix
My question is, which is the best way to build cardano, is building with nix-build okay and satisfies everything, so that if I transfer my coins to the Linux wallet, create the paper wallet and send the coins there, I’ll be able to restore them without problems?
Also, which branch is the best one to build the wallet from - is there a list of the latest branches that are up-to-date and contain all the latest stable development hurdles.
