evopedia is running on arch linux

23 Dec 2010

#motivation evopedia [1] is now working on arch linux! i’ve uploaded the PKGBUILD to AUR [2], which means that it is now very easy for arch linux users to use evopedia.

with some luck a developer will pick up that package and put it into the main distribution. in case you want to use the package directly (without waiting for official support,  read on)

how to install

download the PKGBUILD source from [2]. then read [3] and in short:

as root:

pacman -S base-devel

as root:

makepkg PKGBUILD

as normal user:

pacman -U evopedia-0.4.2-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

if you get any trouble, read the documentation ;-)
