Compiling Rakudo Star on OpenBSD 6.8
lambda.cx wrote about this a few months ago. I compiled the 2020.10 version today on OpenBSD 6.8.
I had to update the
datasize-cur value to
staff login class & add my user to the class. The rest of install was
simple & the
rstar script just worked. The installation took around an
hour on my system.
git clone https://github.com/rakudo/star cd star ./bin/rstar fetch ./bin/rstar install
After the installation was complete, I moved it to another directory but that caused raku to exit with this error:
ld.so: raku: can't load library 'libmoar.so' Killed
Symlinking the original install directory to the new directory fixed
this issue. This issue could've been prevented by passing the
-p flag to
# replace `~/star' with desired install directory ./bin/rstar install -p ~/star
