The main channel to compile Pijul from source is the Rust Language package manager: cargo. You’ll need to download rustup from here to install cargo.
On installing cargo, there are also three different channels to choose from, namely: stable, beta and nightly. You can find more information about it here. If you’re unsure of which channel to choose, go with stable as your default rust toolchain:
rustup default stable
If you’ve already installed rustup before, make sure to update it.
Next, you’ll need the necessary libraries and header files installed on your computer and clang compiler:
sudo apt install make libsodium-dev libclang-dev pkg-config libssl-dev libxxhash-dev libzstd-dev clang
brew install llvm libsodium openssl xxhash zstd
On Arch Linux:
sudo pacman -S clang libsodium gcc-libs rustup pkgconf diffutils make xxhash
On openSUSE Tumbleweed:
sudo zypper in clang-devel libopenssl-devel libsodium-devel libzstd-devel pkgconfig xxhash-devel
On Void (Linux):
sudo xbps-install libgcc-devel libressl-devel libsodium-devel libzstd-devel xxHash-devel
After installing the necessary libraries and header files, it’s time to install Pijul!
Run the following command in your terminal:
cargo install pijul --version "~1.0.0-alpha"
You might need to add the install directory to your $PATH environment
variable. For example: adding the following to your
Nix is a package manager that can be installed on any linux distribution, and on OSX.
nix-env --upgrade nix-env -iA pijul
curl https://nixos.org/nix/install | sh
If it fails with the following error:
nix error: cloning builder process: Operation not permitted
then create a file as root:
sudo su root -c 'echo "kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone=1" >> /etc/sysctl.d/nix.conf'
Pijul is packaged in AUR. It should be up-to-date or at least close.
For the development version (
1.0.0-alpha.X) of Pijul,
a package for
openSUSE Tumbleweed in the openSUSE Build Service:
sudo zypper addrepo -f -r https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/tools:/scm/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/devel:tools:scm.repo sudo zypper install --allow-vendor-change pijul
Use the development version at your own risk. As soon as Pijul 1.0.0 is published, the package will be updated and submitted to openSUSE Tumbleweed.
