It should work on 0.10; I'm not sure about earlier versions.

What happens if you try to run `cabal install yi -fpango`? Also, can you
try installing the development version? That might provide more insight
the problem, as I'm not immediately sure what's wrong.

To get the latest version from the darcs repository, try this:

$ darcs get http://code.haskell.org/yi/
$ cd yi
$ cabal install -fpango

And then, try execution via (the -fpango should be the default, but no
harm in being verbose)

$ yi -fpango

Do you get any errors at this point?
