Since emerge is the Gentoo package manager, these instructions are unlikely to work on any other distro/OS unless of course you have installed [http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/gentoo-alt/prefix/index.xml prefixed portage].

You need to unmask several packages, by putting the following in /etc/portage/package.keywords to run the 'unstable' branch. Note that these are actually developed in the [http://www.haskell.org/~gentoo/gentoo-haskell/ haskell overlay] before moving to the portage tree.

If you're currently running stable ghc, you should upgrade ghc first and then run ghc-updater. Either way, it would be good to emerge ghc first, then emerge himerge.

This wiki site is supposed to be the place containing all the possible information and documentation for Himerge

FAQs

What does Himerge really/exactly stands for?

It technically stands for "Haskell Interface for eMerge" ; though I personally can also think about some funny terms like:

  - Hi 'emerge'
  - High-Emerge
  - Himerge Is (only) emerge

How do I install Himerge?

Since emerge is the Gentoo package manager, these instructions are unlikely to work on any other distro/OS unless of course you have installed prefixed portage.

You need to unmask several packages, by putting the following in /etc/portage/package.keywords to run the 'unstable' branch. Note that these are actually developed in the haskell overlay before moving to the portage tree.

# haskell
dev-lang/ghc
dev-haskell/cabal
# haskell deps
dev-haskell/mtl
dev-haskell/filepath
dev-haskell/regex-base
dev-haskell/regex-posix
dev-haskell/regex-compat

# himerge
app-portage/himerge
dev-haskell/parallel
dev-haskell/gtk2hs

If you're currently running stable ghc, you should upgrade ghc first and then run ghc-updater. Either way, it would be good to emerge ghc first, then emerge himerge.
