Get to GHC build 8.6.5 to get cabal

GHC 8.X.X requires GHC 7.10.X, GHC 7.6.3 is available in pkgsrc, bootstrap 7.10.3 with it, then build GHC 8.X.X.

The command-line interface for Cabal and Hackage.

Sadly Linux is prioritized as is AWS, before you get to Haskell cabal though, we need the following packages and tools on our Linux system to download the source code and build it:

  • developer libraries for the the arbitrary precision library gmp,
  • developer libraries for the compression library zlib,
  • developer libraries for systemd,
  • developer libraries for ncurses,
  • ncurses compatibility libraries


Trition SmartOS is not Linux so:

  • Service Management Framework (SMF)
