I got IntelliJ CLion working on my nixos based arm system. However, the rust tool chain doesn’t know where to find stdlib sources yet and the fsNotifier is still broken despite compiling it for the platform.

Is anyone instead in a description of what I am doing to fix it? Or maybe even a working flake?

The trick is to just use emacs or vim, and then you don't have to worry about IntelliJ being broken.

@ScumbagDog that is true and I am tempted!

I'll still need to solve the rust stdlib source code availability issue in nixos. Worst case scenario, I manage it out of band through rustup.

If you have any suggestions to make the nixos managed rust experience any better, I would love to hear them!

I don't use nix myself, I just got tired of jetbrains taking away my IDE as a student, so now I've committed to learning emacs as nobody can take that from me.

@ScumbagDog I can understand that! Great platform to learn. I used emacs exclusively for about 6 years when I did C programming and really enjoyed it.

Best of luck on your emacs journey! It’s a fun one!
