Status Report 20070627

ELF platforms (especially Linux x86-64):


  • non-threaded PIC RTS via Native Code Generator (NCG)
  • Building all core-packages as DSOs via Cabal patches
  • Linking executable using DSOs.
  • Running test cases for most the stage1 compiler.
  • Building GHC itself as dynamically linked executable

To be done

  • Check i386 platform (at the moment the NCG refuses to compile the RTS)
  • Support on Windows
  • Verify support on Darwin
  • GHCi via dlopen
  • Support Makefile generation for dyn way in Cabal
  • Pushing all patches upstream to Cabal/GHC
