How to get it

The easy way is to go to the web page, which should be self-explanatory:


We supply binary builds in the native package format for many

Thank you for the release!

I have done test scratch builds for Fedora 19 Rawhide:

x86_64: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=4921062
i686:   http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=4921063
armv7:  http://arm.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1412219

Due to the Haskell Platform schedule being out of sync with Fedora's,
we will probably first see ghc-7.6 in a Fedora release towards the end of this year.


ps Note the above builds do not have auto-generated library interdependencies
and will disappear within a week. The "bootstrap" src rpm is also available from
can generate correct dependencies for ghc-pkg-7.6.

pps Just wish the source tarball was a bit smaller! (~80% is mingw64)
