That is strange, I'm using Ubuntu myself, and I come from Windows so know
absolutely nothing about Linux whatsoever, but GHC 6.10.2 binary installed
without problems.

But anyway, in this case, if you're on Windows, installation of GHC works
like a charm: download, install, play. But for most of the packages on
Hackage, Windows is not a good platform :)
