  • Do you mind sharing when was the last time you tried? One usually would get the compiler Rakudo through Rakudo Star (quaterly releases) which contains the Rakudo compiler, a few modules from the ecosystem, and language documentation. You can also install only the compiler if you wish. Alternatively, you could try rakudo-pkg which offers minimalistic, self-contained packages for every Rakudo release (monthly).

    By JRE, do you mean Java Runtime Environment? Rakudo targets the JVM and MoarVM, thus you probably tried to install Rakudo targeting JVM and that's the reason for the dependencies. I myself have only used Rakudo targeting MoarVM.

    If you still want to install it, I suggest you go with Rakudo on MoarVM. If you've any questions, you can join the #perl6 IRC channel. I'm quite sure people there will help you out.
