comment How to use a package revision not yet in the published nixpkgs (but described in the development bracnhes of nixpkgs)?
Perhaps, I could simply extract the wanted package from the master branch of nixpkgs and add it locally to what is available, like in How do I create a local repository for NixOS/nixpkgs?

comment Cannot execute binary in NixOS - No such file or directory
Perhaps, an example of using patchelf to run a binary in a nix environment can be of some use to those searching a solution. But that case is the user's "active" nix environment in a single-user nix installation under CentOS, yours needs may be different (IIC the more nixy approach would be to refer not to the "active" symlinked environment, but rather to a specific versioned, hashed one in the nix store).

comment iptables redirect outside requests to 127.0.0.1
I see, the patch for route_localnet is more recent (June 7, 2012) than my kernel ( 2.6.30-std-def-alt15 #1 SMP Mon Dec 14 08:45:48 UTC 2009). Ok, I'll simply achieve the wanted port-forwarding (from outside to inside) with a forwarding process like netcat (nc), xinetd, or the port-forwarding options of ssh (the latter is ineffective and stupid, of course, but I mention it, because, well, this possibility is there).

Yes, very valuable hard-to-find information! Thank you! But I don't have route_localnet. Have there been other names for it?

comment How to use libraries installed by nix at run-time?
@FaheemMitha I thought the tag had some description so I don't need to explain this in the post. But apparently the tag has no description. Oh, well, so I have to put in some links. nix is a modern package manager, and nixOS is a distro, and Hydra is a system for constantly rebuilding nix packages, and nixOps is a tool to manage an infrastructure (a network of several hosts) declaratively, and disNix to manage a set of services declaratively (on top of an infrastructure). guix is a GNU offspring of nix, with a distro (promoted as 100%libre IIC
