Debian is more Free Software aligned than Ubuntu

Build Dependencies

In order to be able to build Replicant, you need to install some (free) software:

Required Packages

  • python 2.x
  • bison
  • flex
  • git
  • gperf
  • libncurses development headers
  • make
  • gcc, g++
  • mksquashfs
  • openjdk 6
  • pngcrush
  • wget
  • zip
  • zlib development headers
  • lzma

Additional requirements for 64 bit computers

  • 32 bit libncurses
  • 32 bit libreadline
  • 32 bit libc6 headers
  • 32 bit zlib
  • gcc, g++ multilib support

Command line installation


Required Packages:

apt-get install  bison flex git-core gperf libncurses-dev build-essential squashfs-tools openjdk-6-jre openjdk-6-jdk pngcrush wget zip zlib1g-dev lzma

Additional requirements for 64 bit computers:

apt-get install libc6-dev-i386 gcc-multilib g++-multilib lib32z1-dev lib32readline5-dev lib32ncurses5-dev 

  • If the packages manager complains about lib32readline5-dev being missing, replace it with lib32readline-gplv2dev in the command line.
  • If the /usr/lib/zconf.h header is missing, you will have to create a symlink there:
    sudo ln -s /usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/zconf.h /usr/lib/zconf.h
  • If you see errors about incompatible library versions, you may need some symlinks. For example:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/ /usr/lib32/


Add the following to /etc/pacman.conf (it should be safe for freedom since lukeshu is part of the parabola community and pcr is a parabola repository):

SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Required Packages:

pacman -S core/bison core/flex extra/gperftools core/ncurses community/squashfs-tools pcr/openjdk6-old extra/wget extra/zip core/zlib core/xz ~lukeshu/pngcrush extra/gperf extra/bc

Additional requirements for 64 bit computers:
Uncomment or add the following repository in /etc/pacman.conf:

SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

pacman -S multilib/lib32-glibc multilib/gcc-multilib multilib/lib32-readline multilib/lib32-ncurses multilib/lib32-zlib
