Binary Distribution Notes

If you have just untarred a binary Go distribution, then there are some
environment variables you'll need to set in your .profile (or equivalent):

    GOOS should be set to your operating system (eg, linux),
    GOARCH should be your processor architecture (eg, amd64),
    GOROOT should be the directory you extracted the tarball to,
    GOBIN should point to $GOROOT/bin.

For example, if you downloaded the tarball 

    go.release.YYYY-MM-DD.linux-amd64.tar.gz 

and extracted it to 

    /home/username/go

you would set the following variables:

    export GOOS=linux
    export GOARCH=amd64
    export GOROOT=/home/username/go
    export GOBIN=$GOROOT/bin

See doc/install.html for more detail about these flags.

Additionally, $GOROOT should be in your $PATH:
    
    export PATH=PATH:$GOROOT
