The registered trademark Linux(R) is used pursuant to a sublicense from The Linux Foundation, the exclusive licensee of Linus Torvalds, owner of the mark on a world-wide basis.

An attempt at making a fully declarative system package manager for Linux.

The main tenants of this package manager are: Maintainable, Bootstrappable, Reproducible.

Note: currently this will only work on x86_64 NixOS 22.05.

Future plans are to support x86_64, arm64, riscv64.

Projects that currently pull in from a binary seed (eg Nixpkgs):

At present many GNU packages pull from Nixpkgs to bootstrap, but this will be eliminated entirely once the full source bootstrap is implemented. x86_64 support in Mes is still in progress.

  • bootstrap/000_bootstrap-seeds
  • gnu/make
  • gnu/gcc
  • gnu/sed
  • gnu/grep
  • gnu/automake
  • gnu/autoconf
  • gnu/coreutils
  • gnu/binutils
  • gnu/diffutils
  • gnu/inetutils

The list of known-working packages can be found at ./scripts/test_all.sh

#Built With

[meghan@nixos:~]$ nix-instantiate --eval -E '(import <nixpkgs> {}).lib.version'
[meghan@nixos:~]$ zig version
