NixOS 22.11 Released With Better AArch64 Support, NVIDIA Open GPU Kernel Driver Option
With today's release of NixOS 22.11 they have merged their aarch64-linux channel with the separate aarch64-linux specific channels being discontinued. With the AArch64 work now living within nixos-22.11 and nixos-22.11-small channels, the AArch64 updates will come at the same time as the x86_64 Linux counterparts.
The NixOS AArch64 Linux ISOs are also now available from the project's downloads page as another sign of their maturing 64-bit Arm support.
Some of the other work with NixOS 22.11 includes switching the crypt password hashing API to be backed by libxcrypt rather than glibc, NixOS documentation is now generated from Markdown, nsncd has replaced nscd, and there is a new NVIDIA hardware option to make use of the NVIDIA Open GPU Kernel driver on the distribution. NixOS 22.11 has also pulled in GNOME 43 and KDE Plasma 5.26, defaults to OpenSSL 3, defaults to PHP 8.1, defaults to Python 3.10, and a variety of other package updates.
