Hello Damien!

Here are a couple of points:

Did you mean 8.4.3? All major modern Linux distributions are compatible
with this version. But you might run into installation issues, just like
with *any other piece of software*.

I see you were able to install GHC on CentOS 7.2, but not on Fedora Core
28. It happens. I can't really tell what might have gone wrong with your
installation on Fedora without additional details, such as: what did you
actually do for the installation. But it definitely should be possible to
install GHC on Fedora.

Yes, I'm using Ubuntu with several different versions of GHC including
8.4.3. I use HVR's ppa for installation:
