Generally, concerning Glasgow Haskell (ghc) installation and usage,
They know GHC and Haskell much better and will help promptly.
Explain them what system and processor you have.
GHC compiles and `makes' itself.
And for the first time, you need to install Glasgow Haskell (ghc)
from binary distribution, not from source.
the binary distribution appropriate to your system
(Linux, Intel ... ?)
DoCon needs version ghc-5.02.2 or ghc-5.02.3
If you have Debian Linux, then install ghc-5.02.2 from the package
of Debian distribution.
Binary installation does not require the Happy parser to be
Then, see install.txt of DoCon.
Also I shall help - only, after about April 25.
