Installing Pharo in Linux using the System Package Manager

One of the improvements that we are including in Pharo 9 is the update of the build process in OpenBuildService.

This service allows us to produce packages for different distributions of Linux. These pacakges are built using the versions loaded in the distribution and they can be installed and updated using the tools present in the system.

Currently we have support for the following set of distributions and architectures, but more are coming.

  • Debian: 9.0 / 10.0 (X86_64)
  • Ubuntu: 18.04 / 20.04 / 20.10 (X86_64, ARM v8 (64 bits))
  • Raspbian: 9.0 / 10.0 (X86_64, ARM v7(32 bits), (X86_64, ARM v7))
  • Arch (X86_64)

We still have the version as latest, later they will be pass to stable as soon as we release Pharo 9.

Updated instructions for installing are found here:
