Nix killed: too much memory


Everytime I try nix the process is killed because it use too much memory !
For instance:

nix search sdl2

It is the same when I try to install a package …


Nix search takes up more memory than a repl (non boosted) can provide. (I have come across this too)

For searches just use

This shouldn’t happen, are you sure you are installing your package correctly?
