There are a few places you can obtain goiardi packages, if you don’t want to build it from source yourself.

  • The most up-to-date, and the one with the most platforms available, is the collection of goiardi packages at packagecloud.io. These packages are built automatically when a new release is made. Currently, packages are built for Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04 on amd64, CentOS (etc.) 6 and 7 for amd64 (a.k.a x86_64 in Red Hat terminology), and Debian wheezy and jessie for amd64, armhf, and armel. On an experimental basis, there are also CentOS 7 (well, more RHEL probably) and Debian jessie for s390x.

  • Goiardi is in Debian stable, sid, and testing, if you’d rather use distro repos.

  • Goiardi has also been automatically imported to Ubuntu’s “universe” repository from Debian. At this time, it’s available for “Zesty Zapus” and “The Artful Aardvark” from the distribution repositories.

  • For those using MacOS X, there is a goiardi homebrew tap.

  • Additionally, each release on github includes a variety of binaries compiled for different architectures, many of which do not have packages.
