Use cachix-action on a NixOS host

See original GitHub issue

What is the best way to set-up cachix on a NixOS host running with a services.github-runner?

As per the issue raised on the NixOS matrix channel, this is a log I got from my attempt.

 /nix/store/l0wlqpbsvh1pgvhcdhw7qkka3d31si7k-bash-5.1-p8/bin/bash -c nix-env --quiet -j8 -iA cachix -f
  error: opening lock file '/nix/var/nix/profiles/per-user/github-runner/profile.lock': Read-only file system
  Error: Action failed with error: Error: The process '/nix/store/l0wlqpbsvh1pgvhcdhw7qkka3d31si7k-bash-5.1-p8/bin/bash' failed with exit code 1

Thanks! I’m closing this as it seems it’s possible to use cachix-action on a NixOS host. Please reopen if any issues persist.

It seems like the user doesn’t have access to the profile, I can take a look at this next week.
