Scheme Programming Language Support with Manjaro Arm?


#1

I am trying out Manjaro Arm on my Raspberry Pi 3, but surprisingly find only Guile as the only viable Scheme interpreter/REPL.

I have tried the following:

Racket, and Mit-Scheme not found by pacman in the repositories.

Chicken Scheme seems to install, but will only run as the Chicken compiler, the csi REPL is MIA.

Chibi Scheme seems to install (and MAKE test runs fine) but then crashes looking for a support file

Chez-Scheme is X86 centric, and no arm fork has been created yet. Historically older versions also ran on Sun SPARC. I did not try to compile or install it.

I would prefer a scheme REPL that is supported by Geiser, running within Emacs.

There are some ARM snapshot builds for Racket:

and you can try building the Arch package from source using its PKGBUILD, editing the arch array to include whichever ARM arch is appropriate.
