In the spirit of providing a temporary solution to the request to
https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-116, I've been posting .deb packages for
Ubuntu 14.04 and 15.10 on an S3 repository.
The following commands will add the repository to allow installation of
wget -qO- http://dev.iachieved.it/iachievedit.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb http://iachievedit-repos.s3.amazonaws.com/ trusty main" | sudo
tee --append /etc/apt/sources.list
echo "deb http://iachievedit-repos.s3.amazonaws.com/ wily main" | sudo tee
sudo apt-get update
apt-get install swift-2.2
I typically try to get an updated package out there shortly after the .tgz
are released by Apple, but these are built on my own and are not a
repackaging of the Apple binaries.
At some point for SR-116 the real answer is to not use a PPA or my
repositories but work with Debian and Ubuntu to get a full package
maintainer. In the meantime, these are for anyone to enjoy.
