The Rakudo team provides a source code distribution that you can download. Use that.
This package contains Perl 6 Rakudo Star 2014.12.1 compiled for Linux specifically to be used with Travis-CI but it can be used elsewhere too. The whole Perl 6 Maven runs on it. AFAIK the only limitation is that it needs to be installed in the /user/travis directory as path-es are hard-coded.
$ sudo mkdir /home/travis $ sudo chown foobar.foobar /home/travis $ cd /home/travis $ wget http://dwimperl.szabgab.com/download/rakudo-2014-12-1-2.tar.gz $ tar xzf rakudo-2014-12-1-2.tar.gz $ cd $ /home/travis/rakudo-2014-12-1-2/bin/perl6 -v This is perl6 version 2014.12 built on MoarVM version 2014.12You can add /home/travis/rakudo-2014-12-1-2/bin to your PATH environment variable
export PATH=/home/travis/rakudo-2014-12-1-2/bin:$PATHand then you don't need to type in the full path every time you run a script:
$ which perl6 /home/travis/rakudo-2014-12-1-2/bin/perl6 $ perl6 -v This is perl6 version 2014.12 built on MoarVM version 2014.12
