Description

hello,
i seem to be getting a panic from ghci on a very simple
program.  apologies if this is not a bug, but something
wrong with my installation.  this is on linux (mandrake
9.1), and i just installed the rpm for redhat available
from the site.  the same problem was happening with the
binary distribution as well.
this is what happens:

diatchki@chara: Haskell >ghci
   ___         ___ _
  / _ \ /\  /\/ __(_)
 / /_\// /_/ / /  | |      GHC Interactive, version
6.0, for Haskell 98.
/ /_\\/ __  / /___| |      http://www.haskell.org/ghc/
\____/\/ /_/\____/|_|      Type :? for help.

Loading package base ... linking ... done.
Prelude> let Just x = Nothing in x
ghc-6.0: panic! (the `impossible' happened, GHC version
6.0):
        getLinkDeps No iface for [<pkg>]GHCziErr

Please report it as a compiler bug to
glasgow-haskell-bugs@haskell.org,
or http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghc/.

bye

This is a bad bug, reported many times now.  It'll be fixed in 
6.0.1, which is imminent.

Meanwhile, as a workaround, start by saying
    :t GHC.Err.error
and all will be well
