Hi Peter,
I have Blobs compiling and running in my machine.
Its an Kubuntu Gutsy with GHC 6.6.1 and HaXml 1.19.SOMETHING (I'm using
a repository version but not yet the current one)
This implies some minor changes that I've as local patches, that I can
send to you as soon as I find how to get a file per patch from the

The big issue is always to be able to get wxHaskell compiled and working
I'm currently using a recent (1 or 2 weeks old) version of wxHaskell
from its official repository  (darcs get
http://darcs.haskell.org/wxhaskell) and wxGTK 2.6.3

You can find more information in INblobs (INblobs is done on top of
Bblobs) webpage : http://haskell.di.uminho.pt/jmvilaca/INblobs/
or in the wxHaskell mailing list wxhaskell-users at lists.sourceforge.net

What versions of wxWidgets are you using and in which platform?
