NixCon 2023

Automating testing of NixOS on physical machines
09-08, 15:50–16:15 (Europe/Berlin), Lecture hall (Room 122)

The NixOS virtual machine testing framework is very powerful, and allows for convenient testing of entire NixOS machines. However, some capabilities can only be tested by booting a physical machine with a given NixOS closure. This talk describes some work done toward the goal of enabling testing NixOS closures on physical machines, with an example of testing NVIDIA Jetson devices using the "jetpack-nixos" project.

What level of experience in Nix is the talk addressed to?
