Distro packages

When on *nix, the easiest way to install Rakudo is to use the packages provided by your distribution. The packages on non-rolling release distributions are often a bit out of date.

Fedora

dnf install rakudo

Ubuntu / Debian

apt-get install rakudo

openSUSE
openSUSE Tumbleweed (rolling release)

zypper install rakudo

openSUSE Leap (stable)
Click on "1 Click Install" under experimental packages
Gentoo (rolling release)

emerge --ask --verbose dev-lang/rakudo

Alpine Linux

apk add rakudo

NixOS

NixOS: nix-env -iA nixos.rakudo

Non-NixOS: nix-env -iA nixpkgs.rakudo

User repositories

Arch Linux (AUR)
rakudo-bin rakudo rakudo-git
rakudo-pkg distro packages

These are often more up to date than the packages provided by the distribution itself, but require adding a third party repository.

  • Native packages and repositories for Alpine, Debian, EL (RHEL/CentOS/AmazonLinux/OracleLinux), Fedora, openSUSE and Ubuntu
  • Additionally a relocable tar.gz for all Linux distributions
  • One single package used for Rakudo, NQP and MoarVM
  • Includes zef (Raku Module Installer) and helper scripts (e.g. zef install as user).
