Compiling on Linux is fairly straightforward. All of the library dependencies usually compile without problems on Linux (and other Unix-like operating systems such as Mac OS X). Depending on your distribution, you may be able to install most or all of the dependencies from distribution-provided packages. Please let us know the appropriate list for your distribution if it’s not already on this page.

- libghc6-mtl-dev (not needed or available in Debian 3.1 ‘Sarge’, or Ubuntu ‘Edgy’ or earlier)
