From Fedora Project Wiki


The mission of the Haskell Special Interest Group is to maintain, grow, and guide the packaging of Haskell projects in Fedora.


Mailing lists

We have two mailing-lists:


We have an #fedora-haskell[?] channel on


There are biweekly office hours in IRC #fedora-haskell: check the SIGs calendar and our mailing-list for details.

Package versions

GHC and Stackage LTS versions

  • F33 and F34 have ghc-8.8.4 and Stackage LTS 16
  • F32 has ghc-8.6.5 and Stackage LTS 14
  • EPEL8 has ghc-8.2.2
  • EPEL7 has ghc-7.6.3 and haskell-platform-2013.2.0.0

See Haskell_Stackage_LTS and Haskell_Platform for older releases.

See Haskell_GHC_LLVM for llvm version requirements.

GHC modules

The following module streams are currently available for current Fedora releases:

  • ghc:9.2 (9.2.1-alpha2)
  • ghc:9.0 (9.0.1)
  • ghc:8.10 (8.10.5)
  • ghc:8.8 (8.8.4)

Haskell Coprs

Coprs for EPEL 6 & 7 only

For newer versions of ghc you can use the following:

(*) if you have Fedora Haskell libraries installed which are not part of ghc, you will need to remove them all first (easiest just to remove ghc-base) to avoid package dependency conflicts


  • add cabal-install to module streams
  • help improve FedoraReview/plugins/
  • docsbeat
  • document ghc and package update workflow (GHC_Update_SOP)
  • package larger subset of LTS in Copr
