Furthermore, because the ebuild for haskell-platform (dev-haskell/haskell-platform-2009.2.0.2) uses the old version of ghc (dev-lang/ghc-6.10.4), it will conflict with newer ebuilds that use newer versions such as ghc-6.12.3. In order to resolve this conflict the newer ebuilds that uses ghc-6.12.3 need to be masked by adding these entries to /etc/portage/package.mask

Gentoo supports the Haskell Platform!

Contents

[edit] 1 Setup

There are two ways to install haskell-platform, from the main portage tree or the overlay. The overlay is recommended as the overlay includes additional haskell packages that are not in the portage tree.

[edit] 1.1 Overlay

To get the latest version use the overlay. If you haven't already, install layman (this is used to setup overlays). Then run 'layman -a haskell' to install the haskell overlay. Now you are ready to install.

[edit] 1.2 Portage Setup

Gentoo portage packaging policy requires that packages can not be marked stable until they have been in the portage tree for > 30 days. Some of the ebuilds are not stable yet, so they need to be enabled by adding these entries to /etc/portage/package.keywords:

dev-lang/ghc

[edit] 2 Install

Now, to install, run:

emerge haskell-platform

This will pull the GHC compiler, Cabal, and all the libraries included in HP. If you want haddock documentation, set your USE="doc". If you also want profiling libraries, set USE="profile".

[edit] 3 Feedback

Got any feedback for the packages above? Let us know!

You'll find us in #gentoo-haskell @ freenode, or send your comments to haskell@gentoo.org.
