I had another go at getting it going.
leksah 0.6.1 requires gtk2hs >= 0.10gtk2hs 0.10.1 requires gtksourceview >= 2.2gtksourceview 2.2 requires gtk+ >= 2.12gtk+ >=2.12 requires upgraded glib
So the answer is no, it is not installable on Centos withoutupgrade to gtk and glib.
The fedora 12 install works and I have leksah and my wx appworking, but unfortunately I use NX to open a remote sessionto the server and leksah does something to crash the connection,so I can not use it anyway.

Hi Adrian,

Were you able to get the installation of Leksah done ? I haven't tried installing leksah from cabal in centos myself but it would be good to know whether it is possible to get leksah built without having to upgrade gtk and glib in Centos 5.4. In that case, we might be able to use some rpms from fedora haskell platform.

Hi Adrian

Is Centos close enough to RedHat to use Fedora packages?

The Haskell-Platform seemingly is available as a package:


Leksah has a fairly large set of dependencies so installing it might

take some work - particularly where it depends on packages outside the

Haskell Plaform (GTK, etc...) you might well want versions from

Hackage rather than ones prepackaged for Fedora. It might be worth

asking on the Fedora-Haskell-devel mailing list for better advice.

Best wishes
