@kaismh Does the binary version of powershell come with PowerShellGet built-in?

Thanks for your reply, I used and it is working.

Should we open an issue at

When I attempt to build PowerShellGet from source, reports "Arch Linux is not supported!"

kaismh commented on 2017-09-12 08:01

It seems that the PowerShellGet module is not installed with this package, any idea on how to install it?

I will look into this issue and update to beta 6 tomorrow night.

The tests in this package fail if makepkg is run remotely over SSH.

Thanks gegenschall!

I don't see the problem here. It builds just fine on my machine with the latest dotnet packages. Here's a recording of me building it:

One thing though: Make sure that your PKGBUILD does not execute build.psm1 from if you have powershell installed already. That won't work and complains about dotnet 2.0.0 being too old compared to a preview version.

You can use this PKGBUILD, it should be working for v6.0.0-beta.5:

I'll update to beta 4 as soon as dotnet 2.0 preview 3 is released and add an entry to /etc/shells tonight
