I never had the curiosity to look for zfs. I suppose its more versatile, and better for things like encryption.
I still use a lot of btrfs, because booting from it used to be easier. But it has some quirks, e.g. I would not enable the quota feature, there are some odd bugs with docker,du can explode your space usage in some scenarios and any raid support is broken.

@florian:web3.foundationFlorianBut once you start using subvolumes and snapshots, you will never want to go back.21:48:40
@florian:web3.foundationFlorian Also, btrbk is great if you end up using btrfs 21:49:05
@pablo1107:matrix.orgpablo1107You convinced me. I will take a look at this in my personal machine. Anyway I wanted to nuke my nix system so I can get used to setup using my config files.22:57:43

I had this as my xss-lock lockerCommand. I can't remember when it last worked, maybe 19.03 haha. This isn't really a Nix problem I guess, unless it's the way i3lock-fancy was compiled with imagemagick. Just wondering if anybody can make sense of this or ran into this at some point and can point me in the right direction.

$ i3lock-fancy --text= -- scrot --silent
convert: improper image header `/home/pnelson/tmp/tmp.o3o3bbOfNF.png' @ error/png.c/ReadPNGImage/4104.
convert: no images defined `txt:-' @ error/convert.c/ConvertImageCommand/3235.

Both have unhandled review comments. Maybe see what's up with them and whether you can help answer the questions or resolve the issues.

@pablo1107:matrix.orgpablo1107I imagine it would take quite a while until one became a great contributor.20:28:50
@jwaksbaum:matrix.orgJakeCan nix flakes handle git submodules? Or do I need to use the flakes input mechanism for something like that?21:12:46

pablo1107: work hard and become a person who can merge PRs...?
For me as someone who regularly merges PRs it's always helpful to have a few more approvals from people (who also built and tested the package/module in question locally as well)

not yet. But if I understand your question correctly it should be possible with https://github.com/NixOS/nix/pull/3549
