I'm using Nix on Ubuntu to have more modern versions of some packages, one of them being git. When I'm run
nix-env -u, this is what happens:
% nix-env -u --dry-run '*' (dry run; not doing anything) upgrading `git-126.96.36.199' to `git-1.9.0-full'
This is not what I want - I prefer the plain version
git-1.9.0 over the
-full version. I know I can manually upgrade to the plain version with
nix-env -i git-1.9.0, but is there a way to make
nix-env -u to do what I want?
