I'm on Snow Leopard, and just installed the new Haskell Platform with GHC 6.12 from the download site. As far as I can tell everything works fine without the patches and other instructions in the Snow Leopard section. Accordingly, I'm removing the section. --AranDonohue 13:29, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

GHC with


I am running Lion 10.7.3 and Xcode 4.3.2, with the Command Line tools installed through Xcode, and ghc (64bits version) works just fine.

All I had to do was create a symbolic link in /usr/bin/gcc that links to /Developer/usr/bin/gcc (Apple apparently changed the usual path, and ghc can't find gcc under /Applicationg).

I get a warning every time i compile (ld: warning: could not create compact unwind for _ffi_call_unix64: does not use RBP or RSP based frame), but I have never had any problem running or compiling any kind of Haskell code.

I think this option makes it much more easier to newcomers to run the Haskell platform, instead of having to mess around with older versions of Xcode - just install everything the easy way, and create a symlink.

Just a thought. Cheers, Pedro
