I want to try NixOS again, and then get the yarn desktop client built on that, and then see if I can get the client into their repo. That would be fun to do. If I have time tonight I’ll start on that.
So, I kinda regret installing NixOS, I had forgotten why I did not use it for c++ stuff last time. But I learned about ‘flakes’ so Im checking into that now to see if I can use that to my advantage to make it easier. So I’ll give it some more time to see if I can learn what I need to build yarn desktop client on it.
Heh, I do not regret it anymore, I was able to create a flake.nix file that builds the desktop client on NixOS.
But I now found a bug with keyring access that I need to fix. but the client compiles and starts.
It does not open the keyring - so it hangs and waits and you need to kill it. On my previous machine the keyring got opened at login by another application.
Here is a screenshot showing the client running on NixOS.

@prologic Thank you! Now I just need to get it running on OpenBSD 😀
