I am trying to install haskell-platform-2011.2.0.1 onto my SUSE 11.4. I have got all the dependencies required for ./configure, which works ok. But when getting to make, it builds with this error:


Scanning system for any installed Haskell Platform components...

Found: None.

New packages to install: None! All done.

How do I install the missing System.IO module?
