Hi folks,<br><br>I've got an application to release. I'm releasing the
source, but I also wanted to release binary versions for people that
don't have GHC. I developed on Windows, so making a Windows executable
was simple. I also have access to an Ubuntu Linux box, on which I can
easily build and test my app.<br>
<br>But, I'm a bit confused about how to release binaries for Linux.
It's not so simple as on Windows. Or, maybe it is but I don't know it.
What do people recommend as a way of distributing Linux binaries? I
tried to make a Debian package and couldn't figure it out, but maybe
that's overkill. GHC itself has some kind of tarball for the binary
distributions, one for Debian and one for Red Hat. How would I make
such a package and what would go into it? There's only one executable,
so it shouldn't be too complicated.<br>
<br>I figure the main issue on Linux is that when you compile it, it's linked to specific shared libraries.<br><br>Don't have a Mac myself but I'm happy to have Mac folks submit binaries. I'll worry about that later.<br>
