For ubuntu (change jaunty as needed):

sudo sh
cat >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/parrot-dev.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/sthoenna/parrot-ysth/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/sthoenna/parrot-ysth/ubuntu jaunty main
apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 834C179E
apt-get update
apt-get perl6

parrot occasionally segfaults building rakudo under lpia - just retrying
seems to work (though I don't know what all may differ from one try to
another on the launchpad build farm).

The dependencies aren't ideal; I think rakudo only needs libparrot1.6.0
and the library files from parrot-devel, but parrot-devel drags in all
the parrot packages except parrot-doc.
