forget RPM's, real men use DEB's. Ubuntu -- being a Debian derivative
-- does so, too. Btw Debian unstable has got GHC 6.6, and isn't
unstable nowadays, except for the name. Better call it Sid; the
freezing process has already begun. If you are interested in a stable
system with GHC 6.6, go with Debian Sid until it transforms into Etch
(the next stable version). Then you can forget hacking Linux for a
couple of years. On the other hand, it will probably take some months
until release, which brings some risk in the game.
