Description (last modified by simonmar)

I just installed the 64bit version of ghc on an athlon
64.  ghc does work and produces correct 64bit code, but
ghci fails to start.

Here is the complete output:

[phil@athlon64 ~]$ ghci
   ___         ___ _
  / _ \ /\  /\/ __(_)
 / /_\// /_/ / /  | |      GHC Interactive, version
6.2.2, for Haskell 98.
/ /_\\/ __  / /___| |
\____/\/ /_/\____/|_|      Type :? for help.

Loading package base ... /usr/lib64/ghc-6.2.2/HSbase.o:
unknown architecture
ghc-6.2.2: panic! (the `impossible' happened, GHC
version 6.2.2):
        loadObj: failed

Please report it as a compiler bug to,

I'm using Fedora Core 3 and installed ghc using yum.

If you have any questions, contact me:

  • Summary changed from missing x86 support to GHCi support on x86_64
Logged In: YES 

Changed to a feature request; GHCi support is simply not
present on x86_64 yet.

Basic GHCi support is available in 6.4.1.  However, FFI
support in GHCi is missing, and there are problems with
accessing data in a shared library from Haskell code.

  • Architecture set to x86_64 (amd64)
  • Description modified (diff)
  • difficulty set to Unknown
  • Operating System set to Unknown
  • Resolution changed from None to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

closing feature request, this is now complete apart from the static data problem for which there is a bug (#781) open.
