Failing right now because is down (and redirecting to, but changing the source path to works fine

Just in case you ever wonder about aarch64, I've tested and everything in the chain up to (and including) Rakudo compiles and runs fine.

Hey! Just another little request for the inclusion of perl6-install-dist as with rakudo-git,

install -Dm 755 tools/install-dist.p6 "$pkgdir/usr/bin/perl6-install-dist"

It makes installing Perl6 modules much easier (and is required by e.g. zef).

Trying to install the nqp dependency fails with E404 due to some problems on the rakudo servers (see

You can install rakudo from, following the instructions here:

The url in PKGBUILD can be updated with this one, but I'm not sure what would happen with the nqp dependency then (rakudo installed nqp for me, though maybe this can be turned off). One might end up with two instances of nqp if they install rakudo with nqp already installed, but I guess there should be a way to turn that off.

2018.12 is out but I won’t be able to update the package until next week because I am on vacation without access to my Arch install. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

Could you please put back perl6-install-dist? The file was renamed from "" to "install-dist.p6", which broke the previous command.

Last update solved the issue for me. Thank you.

@spider-mario Yes it is a build error. I had the same problem on three different machines. I build in this order: moarvm, nqp and rakudo. moarvm and nqp are now installed with the last version, but rakudo fails to compile. I think that alexpr just had to downgrade moarvm and nqp, as the old rakudo fails to start with the updated dependencies. Tell me if I can do something to give you more information about the problem.

I am not sure that I understand. Do you get this error when building the package? Have you tried removing old versions of rakudo/nqp/moarvm and building the new versions from scratch? And in what way did it break your current install? That should not happen. For me, the package built successfully, as you can tell from the update on my binary repository (see pinned comment). You can always try to install from there if all else fails.
