Can anyone direct me as to how to install GHC? I went here: and tried both the binary and source packages (though i don't know how to install src.rpm's)

with the binary (.rpm) I got an error when I tried to run it through chrome. The error contained a massive amount of dependencies, the first one being: "ghc-ghc-6.12.3-6.el6.i686 requires"

a quick "yum search libHSdirectory" returned nothing.

maybe there's a repository I can add for the easiest method of install?
