Debian GNU/Linux

Debian Gnu/Linux provides a very good and comprehensive toolchain for Haskell development. The most important packages are available in the stable, testing and unstable trees.

A mailing list for discussing the packaging of Haskell tools, libraries and programs on the Debian OS can be found at the following address:

There is also a darcs package, so you can also 'apt-get install darcs' and then use darcs to get more recent versions of packages (most Haskell libraries seem to have darcs repositories).


Write something please.

Slackware Linux

The official Slackware Linux does not support Haskell at all. No packages are provided.

An unofficial Slackware repository for Haskell tools, library and programs can be found at this address:

This repository works with slapt-get and swaret.

The SlackBuild scripts can be found at the following address:

The scripts can be retrieved via darcs:

 darcs get


Write something please.


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).
