For operating systems that handle the installed software with RPMs there exist parrot packages. Parrot-RPMs are available for the Linux distributions Fedora, Mandriva and SUSE.
Fedora starts the Parrot integration with Fedora 9 and Parrot 1.0. On current Fedora versions the Parrot-software can be chosen during the installation process. On the command line parrot can be installed with the yum tool:
# yum install parrot parrot-devel parrot-tools parrot-doc
Parrot is available in Mandriva, and can be installed with the urpmi tool:
# urpmi parrot parrot-doc parrot-devel parrot-src
openSUSE 11.2 was the first SUSE release that contained parrot. It can be installed with:
# zypper in parrot-devel parrot-docs
Parrot packages are available on OBS.
