I try


on Debian 11.

$ /usr/local/ghc-9.4.0/bin/ghc --version
/usr/local/ghc-9.4.0/lib/ghc- error 
while loading shared libraries: libffi.so.8: cannot open shared object 
file: No such file or directory

Debian 11 seems to support only libffi7:

$ dpkg --list "*libffi*"

ii  libffi-dev:amd64 3.3-6        amd64        Foreign Function Interface library (development files)
un  libffi4-dev      <keine>      <keine>      (keine Beschreibung vorhanden)
ii  libffi7:amd64    3.3-6        amd64        Foreign Function Interface library runtime
ii  libffi7:i386     3.3-6        i386         Foreign Function Interface library runtime

I think this dependency is new and was not present in the Alpha releases.

Also many directories have no read and cd permissions for 'other' users.
