Unmask and Install GHC 6.10.4
Currently (2009-08-02) GHC 6.10.4 and a few libraries are hard masked, meaning you will have to p.unmask yourself before installing. This is because we're still updating the portage packages to get full GHC 6.10.4 support.
echo dev-lang/ghc >> /etc/portage/package.unmask echo dev-haskell/parallel >> /etc/portage/package.unmask echo dev-haskell/haddock >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
As the haskell-platform depends on this recent GHC version, you'll need to unmask it too;
echo dev-haskell/haskell-platform >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
Don't forget that these packages are also ~keyworded.
