This package is heavily outdated and was orphaned. I am working on a new update which should released very soon.

It seems this package was orphaned, I'll adopt it and update it shortly.

This package is still having build issues. Attempting to build results in a non-specific error "make (4)" and not much else.

Doesn't build for me under pacaur, because it conflicts with itself.

Sorry about that marcool04. It's been updated. Thanks for catching that!

Hi there. Seems the sha sum is wrong in current PKGBUILD. Having downloaded the tar.gz from another machine, I have:

# shasum -a 512 rakudo-star-2018.10.tar.gz
50b258409df71003e30563f8a080691f6316c33c958d90579f999b1efd9382292272032874e58953061d6336b1aa2a74a5fba63326480b85eaaf98e10ef6facc  rakudo-star-2018.10.tar.gz

Where the PKGBUILD has:

sha512sums=('36d6f81d8f2fed218edb606bd29a3265cd258ba86100e7e406cc98ae121a4b076cf1489121568ecf5ce9448756029ee1ce3f05cc0ff331eca4f5d9f065576280')

This causes installation to fail, but replacing the sum with the one I quoted above succeeds. Regards, Mark.

As discussed below, I have created a metapackage to install the Rakudo Star modules if Zef has already been installed. Zef is the Perl6 module manager and requires Rakudo (Perl6) to have already been installed.

@piojo

Thanks for the feedback. The short answer is "no" I haven't got this to build / work properly. You're correct about a meta-package being the way to go. I've been holding out hope that each new release would fix DESTDIR support, but it hasn't.

I can set to work on the meta-package, but haven't had much time lately. If you (or anyone) are inclined to do so, you'll also need to make a 'zef' package to that will be used to install the Star modules on top of rakudo. That said, you'll also want to use the *-git versions of moarvm, nqp, and rakudo as another ongoing issue has been that the official releases of those packages are "not new enough" to support the Star modules.
