Getting the Code

The source code for pachuco is hosted in a git repository on github. You can browse the code on github, but you will need git to download it. (You should get git anyway — it's good. Packages for git are available for all major Linux distributions, and it's in FreeBSD ports.)

Once you have git, you can download the source code by cloning the repository from github:

$ git clone git://

$ cd pachuco

Now you are ready to follow the instructions on the Getting Started page.
