rakudo-pkg offers native Linux 64-bit packages of the
Rakudo compiler/runtime for Raku and the
zef module installer. The packages track the
upstream releases closely. Most of the time, the packages will be released on
the same day as the Rakudo sources. At the moment, packages are provided for
Alpine, Debian, EL (RHEL/CentOS/Amazon/Oracle Linux), Fedora, openSUSE,
Ubuntu and their derivatives. Additionally, a relocatable build is also
provided that works universally on all recent Linux distributions without the
need of installation or root privileges.
The easiest way to install and update Rakudo is by using the
repositories (hosted at CloudSmith):
- instructions for Alpine.
- instructions for Debian/Ubuntu and derivatives.
- instructions for EL (RHEL/CentOS/Amazon/Oracle Linux and derivatives) and openSUSE.

After removing the package, you can safely remove /opt/rakudo-pkg for leftover file (like module installations). The repo file (with the name matching nxadm-pkgs-rakudo-pkg-*) can be also removed if rakudo-pkg is no longer necessary in the future.
