Yea, I already tried that, as well as the upgrade. I still need something newer. That's what's giving me fits
Yer not doing anything wrong (I think), we just need a better installer or upgrader. 8.6.5 is the best I can do so far, and I need at least 8.10. It kinda looks like it's possible with that command, but, something is missing. "Bindist OS key has not yet been added for linux armv7"
And google is not being very helpful
I know it's been done, I just can't figure out how

This, https://www.haskell.org/ghc/blog/20200515-ghc-on-arm.html, worked quick and easy for me on a RPi 4 w 8gb RAM and Raspbian

Thanks @analyticd I took a look. That specifically didn't work, but I made some changes that did work.
I'm running 64-bit Debian - arm64. I had to update the download package and install a few additional packages.
sudo apt install llvm-9 libncurses5 libnuma-dev wget http://downloads.haskell.org/~ghc/8.10.1/ghc-8.10.1-aarch64-deb9-linux.tar.xz tar -xf ghc-8.10.1-aarch64-deb9-linux.tar.gz cd ghc-8.10.1 ./configure sudo make install
libnurcses5 was discovered as a need during the
make install command and
libnuma-dev when trying to compile the Hello World application.
Now I just have
stack by my very limited work in Haskell doesn't really need those. Maybe one day I'll do something complex enough in Haskell to need additional tooling.

I emailed the maintainer of GHC's ARM build (and that wiki page above) and he was kind enough to provide an updated URL for a pre-built cabal-install whose URL is referenced from here:
To get the binary:
I have a Raspberry Pi 4 and have been using it for Python and Go development for a while. I've been tinkering around with Haskell and Rust as well. Here's what I did to get Haskell on my RPi.
Details and instructions are here: https://www.haskell.org/downloads/, but
sudo apt install haskell-platforminstalls
ghci. It does not appear to install stack. (I'm very new to Haskell so I can't say too much about
I did find this package to install
sudo apt install haskell-stack.
Here's a bit of what is installed.
a quick list of Haskell packages available using
sudo apt list *haskell*shows a few other options.
In some very quick tests (and remember, I'm a noob with Haskell, Stack, and Cabal) I had more success with Cabal than Stack, but I could very easily be doing something wrong.
