I had asked about cross compilers about 5 months back and other
priorities have put that work on hold. However I am once again tasked
with trying to get Haskell to build properly within an embedded
environment we use. I found the additional pages on the Haskell build
system and its architecture and everything it uses and read through all
of them. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in helping me
work through the problems I'm having with the build of Haskell in Open
Embedded. I want to use the most up to date release of Haskell and if we
need to push any changes to the build system to facilitate getting this
working for everyone I'm happy to do so.
I can set up a repository on github with all the appropriate sub modules
to make it easy for someone to check out and start trying to build GHC.
If anyone is interested in tackling this problem with me I'm happy to
arrange a phone call or some other form of meeting to go over the
specifics of OE and fill that person or persons in on what I hope to
If you are interested please let me know and we can try to work on
getting better build support for Embedded toolchains.
