    GHCi on Slackware 10


    Can anyone tell me where to download the GHCi package for slackware??

    If not, tell me how to do that "Porting" thing they talk about on the GHC homepage.



    I know noby uses Haskell, but I have to use it for some classes at university.

    first place to look for slackware packages would be http://linuxpackages.net/. it's not there though.

    what do you mean? compiling it from source? post a link to the page you're refering to.

    I also searched linuxpackages.net, and as you pointed out, there's no package for ghci.

    I read about "porting" in the ghci homepage:
    http://www.haskell.org/ghc/docs/6.2....rting-ghc.html

    but I can't really grasp what it is that I have to do.

    any help will be apreciated

    it may not work but you can try to install an rpm. make sure you have rpm support on slackware. if not, get this package:
    ftp://darkstar.ist.utl.pt/pub/slackw...2.1-i486-3.tgz

    then do
    Code:
    $ su
    # install_pkg rpm-4.2.1-i486-3.tgz
    and then you probably want to get and install this ghc package:
    http://www.haskell.org/ghc/dist/6.2....-linux.tar.bz2

    we'll resort to porting if that doesn't work.
