@Blaise Pabon I finally remembered the OS… it’s called NixOS

What was the the name of the sandbox style package manager for red hat?

Blaise Pabon

Oh! I remember nixOS! my old boss Ariya is a huge fan of their package manager Nix

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

Yep!

OK, so the redhat OS package manager is ostree

for the system image

Do you know how ostree compares to nix? Or is it apples to oranges

and the next-gen package manager for applications is called flatpak.

Blaise Pabon

Sooo… ostree is for the system image

yes, the ostree upstream project is a little behind on docs. This guy has lots of good links for Nix resources: https://wiki.nikitavoloboev.xyz/package-managers/nix

right and NixOS has a similar approach to system images of NixOS.

rpm-ostree is for RHEL style os

Blaise Pabon

actually the genealogy is more like this:

Blaise Pabon avatar
Blaise Pabon

CoreOS begat ostree (which is mostly found on RedHat systems)

Blaise Pabon avatar
Blaise Pabon

NixOS begat nix (although now nix runs on other OS, including Mac OS!)

IF you’re booting NixOS, then nix can manage your system images.

Blaise Pabon avatar
Blaise Pabon

If you’re booting CoreOS, then ostree will manage your system images.

…and since CoreOS has tight collaboration with Fedora and RHEL, the ecosystem of .rpms is ported over…. whereas there are fewer nixOS binaries and some packages you will have to build from source.

I suspect that NixOS will become the NetBSD of the devops world: bombproof, stable, late to adopt. and CoreOS/OStree will become the RHEL of the Enterprise world.

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

I agree… don’t see NixOS taking off

Blaise Pabon avatar
Blaise Pabon

Don’t get me wrong, ‘nix is a very kickass solution if you are switiching beteween monolithix development environments (python, Java) where a sdk version can mean a whole different set of dependencies.
