Thanks once again to Tom and Manuel for building RH6.2 and
RH7.x RPMs of ghc-5.00.2.  I'll shortly put these RPMs at
the usual place, the download pages at http://www.haskell.org/ghc,
so you can get them from there too.

Note also that a build for Solaris 2.7 (sparc) is also now

| For your installation pleasure, RPM packages built on RedHat=20
| are now available.  Binary packages built for RedHat 7.x are at

and those for RedHat 6.2 are at


The ghc-prof-* packages contain optional libraries for profiling.  The
packages for 6.2 are courtesy of Tom Moertel.

The source rpm used to built the above binaries is at


If you build from the source rpm using an older version of
GHC, note that you have to build the system twice if you
like to use the interactive environment.  The second build should use
the compiler generated in the first.
