GHCI on ARM (Nvidia Jetson TK1)

Tomas Korcak
Hi There,
I would like to ask you what is the situation with ghci on arm.

I bought Jetson TK1 and I am really sad that ghci does not works there.

I have found mentioned somewhere that this should be fixed in 7.4.2 but still it is not.

Can somebody clarify what is the situation at the moment and what are further plans?

Best regards,
T.

I've had good success with Fedora 19 and GHC 7.6 on the ODROID. I don't recall any problems with GHCI.

7.4.2 is over 2 years old now. I recommend checking out something newer (7.8.3 being the most recent release).

GHCi should be functional. As of 7.6.3 (IIRC) the GHC runtime linker has
had support for ARM, although it is known to be buggy in some cases.

More recently there has been a push to move towards dynamic linking by
default. This removes GHC's runtime linker from the equation although
introduces some difficulties of its own (mostly due to bugs in binutil's
linker [1).

A few months back I wrote down some notes on the current state of GHC on
ARM [2]. This might answer some of your questions.

Cheers,

- Ben
