Install required packages on the host¶
The initial version of KaarPux is build using a host system. The host system is used to build a basic tool-chain used to bootstrap KaarPux.
Building KaarPux should work on
x86_64 (64-bit) AMD/Intel platforms.
Any recent mainstream Linux distribution should be usable on the host system.
Certain packages and package versions are needed on the host system to build KaarPux:
- The packages listed in Linux From Scratch: Host System Requirements
- The perl module YAML::Tiny (YAML::Tiny homepage)
- The GNU parallel application (GNU parallel homepage) at least version 20130822
To install the required packages on your host system, you can try to run:
If this does not work, please install the packages mentioned above manually.
Some distributions ship with mawk, which cannot be used to build KaarPux. Make sure you have gawk installed:
awk -W version | head -1
