It took me quite a while to find out how to make Language Server Protocol working with C/C++ on NixOS. clangd couldn’t find any standard header files and complained that “pp file not found”. The trick to make it working is adding clang-tools to nativeBuildInputs in shell.nix. To make clang compiling the programs on the […]

One bought an expensive CD and, unless listening to its samples in the shop, enjoying the surprise afterward at home. (BTW […]
This blog has been silent for a year and even unreachable for some time. One of the primary reasons is that I spend a large portion of my life fixing things. Not because of my choice but because so many things I use don’t work as expected or at all. I have little remaining resources […]
