Gentoo supports the Haskell Platform!

Contents

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.

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.

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:

app-admin/haskell-updater
dev-haskell/alex
dev-haskell/cabal
dev-haskell/cabal-install
dev-haskell/cgi
dev-haskell/deepseq
dev-haskell/fgl
dev-haskell/gluraw
dev-haskell/glut
dev-haskell/haddock
dev-haskell/happy
dev-haskell/haskell-platform
dev-haskell/haskell-src
dev-haskell/hscolour
dev-haskell/html
dev-haskell/http
dev-haskell/hunit
dev-haskell/mtl
dev-haskell/network
dev-haskell/objectname
dev-haskell/openglraw
dev-haskell/opengl
dev-haskell/parallel
dev-haskell/parsec
dev-haskell/quickcheck
dev-haskell/random
dev-haskell/regex-base
dev-haskell/regex-compat
dev-haskell/regex-posix
dev-haskell/statevar
dev-haskell/stm
dev-haskell/syb
dev-haskell/tensor
dev-haskell/text
dev-haskell/time
dev-haskell/transformers
dev-haskell/xhtml
dev-haskell/zlib
dev-lang/ghc

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".
