4 Current Issues

The main issues encountered so far is the memory limitations of the device, at 256mb GHC will execute fine, but problems will start to arise when using cabal to install new libraries, especially ones with lots of dependencies.

Potential solutions to this problem have been suggested, including using QEMU on a more powerful system and thus compiling your application there and copying the resulting binary across to your Raspberry Pi
