This page records some user experiences building wxHaskell on Linux. It should be cleaned up!

Contents

1 Debian and Ubuntu

1.1 Ghc 6.6 version

For Debian Linux systems:

  1. get wxWidgets 2.6
    • aptitude install libwxgtk2.6-dev
  2. obtain the wxhaskell-bin-debian-gtk2.6.3-ghc6.6-0.10.3.deb package from sourceforge
    • Install it with dpkg -i

You may need to add /usr/local/lib to your library search path. You can do that by making a file called /etc/ld.so.conf.d/usr_local.conf containing:

/usr/local/lib

after adding the file, run ldconfig.

1.2 Ghc 6.8 version
  1. get wxWidgets 2.6
    • aptitude install libwxgtk2.6-dev
  2. get ghc
    • apt-get --target-release=unstable install ghc6
  3. obtain the wxhaskell-bin-gtk2.6.3-ghc6.8.2-0.10.3.deb package from sourceforge
    • Install it with dpkg -i

2 Gentoo

wxHaskell is available in portage for x86, amd64, sparc and ppc

ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge wxhaskell

(users of other arches should use their arch keywrods as appropriate)

3 Fedora Core 6

There is no wxHaskell package to go with the ghc-6.6 packages. You will have to compile it yourself. This a simple matter of:

  • Installing wxGTK:
    • yum install wxGTK-devel
  • Getting the sources:
  • Configuring, building and installing:
    • configure && make && make install && make wx && make wx-install
