Revision as of 09:29, 27 November 2018

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

Arch Haskell

IRC #arch-haskell @ freenode.org
Applications Haskell applications provided on Arch Linux
Libraries Haskell libraries on Arch Linux
Tools cabal2arch

Debian GNU/Linux

Debian Gnu/Linux provides a good toolchain for Haskell development


Fedora Haskell SIG Page



IRC #gentoo-haskell @ freenode.org
Applications Haskell applications and libraries provided on Gentoo Linux
Tools hackport


NixOS is a Linux distribution with a unique approach to package and configuration management. Built on top of the Nix package manager, it is completely declarative, makes upgrading systems reliable, and has many other advantages. Nix package manager distributes build instructions for all Haskell packages registered on Hackage.

Documentation User’s Guide to the Haskell Infrastructure, Nix and Haskell in production
Tools cabal2nix, stack2nix

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


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?)

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

Downloads for these distributions can be found at JustHub
