There's a problem with the Haskell Platform website. I'm posting the
message here because I gave up looking for contact information for the
site, maybe someone here can forward the message or tell me who to
forward it to?
The specific page is http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/mac.html
Being one of the few who still use the PPC architecture, I expect to
have to build my own packages from source. Imagine my surprise when
the Haskell platform uses the "Universal Binary" logo on the Mac
download. Nowhere on the Mac download page does it specify an
architecture. However, the binary is i386 only and not PPC. So I
just wasted time downloading something I can't install on my computer.
This page shows the "Universal Binary" logo: http://hackage.haskell.org/platform/
Here is Apple's "Universal Binary" page, which describes what the logo
It would be nice to get rid of the "Universal Binary" logo and to mark
the packages as i386.
