Install Haskell


Haskell is availible for many platforms, see this page.

However it was not obvious to me how to install Haskell (ghc) for opensuse 11.3. It is on the build service here:

but only for openSUSE_11.3 not openSUSE_Factory. On this page openSUSE_11.3 contained a lot of RPMs do I need to download and install all of them? It would be easier if I cold install from YAST but I have tried searching for Haskell or ghc in both software management and package search (webpin) and neither combination returns any results.

In the end I installed Haskell like this:

In openSUSE 42.3 I used the following repository:

martin@suse113:~> su root
suse113:/home/martin # zypper ar hasekell_repo
Adding repository 'hasekell_repo' [done]
