In June 2006 a group of Arch Linux users initiated the KDEmod packaging project to improve and simplify a standard KDE installation with Arch Linux In December 2008 the group released their first custom made ISO with a preconfigured Arch + KDEmod + Tribe4 After several releases lead developer Jan Mette suggested to split from Arch to allow for a much closer integration with KDE software

On August 30, 2010 the first independent version, called Chakra 02 was released5 This ended the development on KDEmod and the project was renamed to "The Chakra Project"6


Chakra includes both free and proprietary software, though the latter may be disabled during installation It is only available for the x86_64 architecture, with support for i686 having been dropped in August 20127 It is based on KDE Software Compilation

Chakra does not schedule releases for specific dates but uses a "Half-Rolling release" system This means that the core packages of Chakra graphics, audio, etc are frozen and only updated to fix any security problems These packages are updated after the latest versions have been thoroughly tested before being moved to permanent repository about every six months This allows stable base to ensure stability to the rest of the programs The other applications web browsers, games, media players, office suites, etc are updated following the rolling release model and are generally available immediately after their release


The Chakra website supplies ISO images that can be run from CD, DVD or USB The ISO images provide two versions, full edition and minimal edition The graphical Chakra installation program is called "Calamares"

Package managementedit


Currently, the following main repositories exist:

  • core, which contains all the packages needed to set up a base system
  • desktop, which contains KDE Software Compilation packages and Chakra tools
  • gtk, which contains various well-known GTK applications
  • lib32, a centralized repository for x86_64 users to more readily support 32-bit applications in a 64-bit environment

And, testing repositories that include package candidates for other repositories Currently, the following testing repositories exist:

  • testing, with packages for stable repositories

In addition, there also exist unstable repositories that include applications that are still considered to be unstable There are also packages built right from the git, not waiting for an official release Currently, the following unstable repositories exist:

  • unstable, which contains development versions of general packages
  • kde-unstable, which contains development versions of KDE Software Compilation packages

Chakra Community Repository CCRedit

In addition to the official repositories, users can install packages from the Chakra Community Repository CCR The CCR provides user made PKGINFOs and PKGBUILD scripts for software which is not included in the official repositories and is inspired by the Arch User Repository CCR packages simplify building from source by explicitly listing and checking for dependencies and configuring the install to match the Chakra architecture The CCR helper programs can further streamline the downloading and building process

A CCR package with many votes and which conforms to the Chakra software policy may be transferred to the official repositories8
