Running Swift on Ubuntu 12.04


(Projjol Banerji) #1

Hi,
I'm running a linux box with Ubuntu 12.04 on it and as none of the official
builds are for this particular version, I was wondering whether it would be
possible to run Swift on 12.04.

From what I've tried, installing libicu52 throws an error as the

repositories for 12.04 don't have it.
Is there a workaround to this? If not, would 12.04 be supported at any
point?

Thanks,
Projjol

I think your only option is building from source, but I'm sure you will hit
rough edges (we already had to work around broken std::regex in Ubuntu
14.04).
