Arch Haskell News: Feb 16 2009

A regular update of Haskell in Arch Linux

Arch now has 926 Haskell packages in AUR.

That’s an increase of 27 new packages in the last 8 days, or 3.38 new Haskell apps a day. Well done everyone!

Noteworthy updates

Installing Packages from AUR

To install AUR packages, we recommend yaourt, as in:

yaourt --noconfirm  --lightbg --aur -S haskell-haha

You may want to alias that command line. Here’s an example from this week’s releases:

The reason to use yaourt over cabal-install is that AUR packages correctly resolve all versions and, more importantly, C library and other system dependencies. Packages will also be pulled from the binary releases in [extra] and [community] where available, saving you build times.

LLVM Haskell bindings

Bryan O’Sullivan and Lennart Augustsson’s high level LLVM bindings for Haskell are now packaged up nicely, making it super easy to drive LLVM from Haskell on Arch.

To read more about these bindings, check out the authors’ blog posts:

The main changes required were to the haskell-pugs-compat, haskell-pugs-drift 2.2.3.0-2 and haskell-hssyck 0.44-2 packages to add “–constraint=’base<4′” to ensure they built with the correct base version.

Enjoy the distro packages for your favorite Haskell applications.
