Arch Linux packages for both i686 and x86_64 are available through our Arch Linux repository.See InstallingOnArchLinux for instructions.
Pre-built packages for i486 and x86_64 (as well as for FLTK 1.3) are available from our Slackware repository. See InstallingOnSlackware for instructions.
OpenBSD (since 5.4) packages EDE for i386, amd64, hppa, mips64, powerpc and sparc64! See InstallingOnOpenBSD for instructions.
