"Loading Nix environment" goes forever (Node.js repl)

Dear Replit community,
While working in a Shell of my Node.js project, I accidently pressed Ctrl + Enter and broke something, I guess. Repl tries to load Nix environment, seconds later dies, and tries again over and over again forever.
How can I stop it? Also, the button to stop the repl also died, it says “Stopping” but doesn’t actually do anything.

Here are screenshots:


Thanks in advance!

Hey, @entcode!

Can you please provide a link to the repl? This way it is easier for staff and members of the community to help you!

Also see this guide on how to share your code:

I apologize for long wait!

In your replit.nix file you have multiple pkgs.openssh_with_kerberos. As far as I can tell, this package is causing the error, removing all duplicates and replacing that package with just pkgs.openssh fixed the issue for me.


Hey @MattDESTROYER, thanks for help! Your method worked for me! Also, I discovered that after a certain period of time Replit gives up and stopes loading Nix, so there is always a spare way out :smile:
