Im participating in the Marlowe Pioneers program, I setup Nixos with IOHK Binary, then added to Marlowe repository, did cd marlowe-cardano. But when I ran Nix-shell I got an error that I had no space left on device. How much space do I need to run these? Setup is 8GB RAM, 16GB Memory. Are there ways i get better optimise to let Nix-shell work? Thanks for your help.
The error you are getting has nothing to do with the RAM of your environment but with the disk space.
Unfortunately, there is no other way to make Nix work rather than setting up a partition with, at least, 40 GB of free space (to be safe).
This is a screenshot of my
/nix/store directory, where Nix keeps all its necessary modules:
You can see it has over 1M files, totalling 33.3 GB.
