This page is not up-to-date! In particular, the AUR package is no longer available.

Fawkes on Arch Linux

Fawkes has been included in the Arch User Repository (AUR). You can install it easily with AUR helpers such as yaourt or by downloading the corresponding tarballs (see How to install an AUR package).

Note that fawkes needs some other packages from the AUR, so using an AUR Helper is highly recommended.

Fawkes Binaries Git Version

There is an AUR package fawkes-git to build the latest upstream version.

Install with AUR Helper

Simply install the package fawkes-git with your AUR Helper. For example with yaourt, run

$ yaourt -S fawkes-git

Install without AUR Helpers

If you don't have any AUR helper, you can install fawkes-git with the following commands:

$ mkdir -p /tmp/fawkes-build
$ cd /tmp/fawkes-build
$ wget https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/fa/fawkes-devenv/fawkes-git.tar.gz
$ tar xzf fawkes-git.tar.gz
$ cd fawkes-git
$ makepkg -s

Then, install the resulting package with pacman (as root):

# pacman -U fawkes-git-*.pkg.tar.xz

Development Environment

If you only want to install fawkes' dependencies, install fawkes-devenv.

Install with AUR Helper

Simply install the package fawkes-devenv with your AUR Helper. For example with yaourt, run

$ yaourt -S fawkes-devenv

Install without any AUR Helpers

If you don't have any AUR helper, you can install fawkes-devenv with the following commands:

$ mkdir -p /tmp/fawkes-build
$ cd /tmp/fawkes-build
$ wget https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/fa/fawkes-devenv/fawkes-devenv.tar.gz
$ tar xzf fawkes-devenv.tar.gz
$ cd fawkes-devenv
$ makepkg -s

Then, install the resulting package with pacman (as root):

# pacman -U fawkes-devenv-*.pkg.tar.xz
