Haskell support on various Linux distributions. How to find Haskell applications and tools, contribute new packages, and get help for your distribution.

Available downloads:

For most cases, the Haskell Platform is the preferred download.

Mostly distributions should provide:

  • GHC
  • Core libraries
  • Core development tools
  • Cabal and cabal-install

2 Debian GNU/Linux

Debian Gnu/Linux provides a good toolchain for Haskell development

3 Fedora

4 Gentoo

5 Slackware Linux

Slackware does not have official Haskell support.

An unofficial Slackware repository for Haskell tools, library and programs is available here. This repository works with slapt-get and swaret.

Tools: slackbuild

6 Ubuntu

This is pretty much the same as Debian, providing you add the 'universe' and/or 'multiverse' repositories, which import Debian packages and recompile them to match Ubuntu dependencies. The exact versions of packages may be different from Debian, but they tend to be ahead of Debian stable (sometimes by a long way). (See also How to install Haskell Platform for Ubuntu 13.04?)

7 RHEL, CentOS, Scientific Linux 5 and 6 and Fedora 16 and 17

Downloads for these distributions can be found at JustHub
