Steps to Build Rakudo for Star distribution.

  • Download Rakudo star distribution from Rakudo releases page

  • Run the parrot.Slackbuild first. (Rakudo depends on parrot). If you do need ICU (optional, not necessary for Rakudo), you can build/install it from: AlienBob's Repository and modify the Slackbuild script by setting ICU to a non zero value.

  • Run the rakudo.Slackbuild script after installing the generated parrot package.

  • Install the generated Rakudo package. You're good to go with: perl6 -e 'say "Hello world!"'

  • Have fun! :)
