I believe there is an bug in the package haskell-platform. This is the output of the installation attempt:
# apt-get install haskell-platform
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
haskell-platform : Depends: alex (< 2.3.5+) but 3.0.1-1 is to be installed
E: Broken packages
Hope this is the right place to post about the problem. keep up the good work.
