Re: GHC armel build
I've finished building the ghc packages. THey seem to compile and
run my stuff ok
The fast testsuite gives 10 unexpected failures, all due to lack of
assembly language support for calls to external C functions, lack of a
native code generator and lack of dynamic library support under ARM. I
assume the old-arm version has the same limitations and am running the
fast test suite on old-arm to verify this, as well as the full
testsuite on armel hoping to catch other problems.
I've uploaded the essential Haskell packages to
http://freaknet.org/martin/debian with a README. These are built from
unmodified Debian source packages.
If I add up the various phases of building spent on the Debian package
on 266MHz / 128MB hardware with 500kb/s I/O, I estimate that it
required about 57 hours of straight grinding on that hardware. I
mention it in case you need to adjust timeouts for it on the faster
Thanks for your endless work pushing the armel port to completion;
it's good to come back and find it in such good shape; let's hope the
Haskell-dependent packages give no further trouble.
