2015-08-16 06:23:35 +0200 <Bruuuuuuuno> what do you mean package manager, like cabal? dramforever
2015-08-16 06:22:54 +0200 <dmj`> Bruuuuuuuno: make a new cabal, call it 'hack'
2015-08-16 03:24:52 +0200 <ansible1> is there a way to limit the number of threads used by a cabal build process?
2015-08-16 00:25:53 +0200 <ttt_fff> is ther ea way to ask cabal "please show me output of this file after CPP pre processing ?
2015-08-15 23:09:58 +0200 <ShaneK> this is a really bare-bones haskell setup, ghc + cabal + ghc-mod + dependencies
2015-08-15 23:09:07 +0200 <ShaneK> cabal and ghc were installed through homebrew (i'm on osx)
2015-08-15 23:07:42 +0200 <dmj`> ShaneK: how did you install cabal and ghc
2015-08-15 22:52:44 +0200 <zipper> How does cabal find the path to a module given the module name?
2015-08-15 15:02:04 +0200 <hexagoxel> indiagreen: maybe cabal simply is too stupid to consider the user-globally-installed package?
2015-08-15 14:20:48 +0200 <indiagreen> why does cabal install an older version of a package when a new version is already installed? specifically, see this log: https://travis-ci.org/aelve/microlens/jobs/75723089 (first microlens-0.3 is installed, then microlens-mtl downloads microlens-0.2 even tho 0.3 should already be in the global database)
2015-08-14 23:40:40 +0200 <bz> why does cabal-install try to install criterion, http-client, http-conduit, and a bunch of totally unrelated packages when all i wanted was `cabal install cereal`, and how do i tell it to stop installing stuff i never asked for?

2015-08-14 19:54:29 +0200 <Phillemann> (Assuming cabal picks the highest version when there are no conflicts)
2015-08-14 19:52:19 +0200 <geekosaur> that should show under Installed versions in cabal list --installed foo
2015-08-14 19:51:13 +0200 <geekosaur> hm, "cabal list" shows only the default version it would use and any installed version, not all available versions. I usually get that from hackage web page
2015-08-14 19:49:28 +0200 <Phillemann> geekosaur: I see. Can I somehow list all the candidates that cabal has to offer? :)
2015-08-14 19:48:44 +0200 <geekosaur> Phillemann, that would imply that you are using something not present in all versions of that package, so cabal is picking the wrong one
2015-08-14 19:47:57 +0200 <Phillemann> Hmmm, my build-depends contains a library without a version number. cabal complains that a module of this package is from the "hidden package foo-0.1". When I write "foo == 0.1" in my build-depends, it works
2015-08-14 19:23:33 +0200 <nitrix> How to load an extension in cabal's repl?
2015-08-14 15:10:03 +0200 <srhb> obiwahn: cabal unpack the package and edit the cabal file, see if it compiles. :)
2015-08-14 14:34:33 +0200 <tsahyt> Why does ghc-mod act up sometimes ever since I started using it with stack? I get "launching operating system process `cabal configure` failed" and a message from cabal that it is incompatible with GHC_PACKAGE_PATH and I should use --package-db instead. Does anybody know the reason for that, or even a fix?
2015-08-14 14:31:13 +0200 <aleator> So, now I added a dependency to foo.cabal. How do I command stack to install it?
2015-08-14 13:04:39 +0200 <MagBo> Maybe I should just mention Executable living in test/usage/Main.hs from the main cabal file of the project?..
2015-08-14 13:03:54 +0200 <MagBo> Yeah, I want to make a sub-project in test/usage. Obviously, I'll place a cabal file into test/usage/usage.cabal, but how do I refer from it to the source code of the library?
2015-08-14 12:47:15 +0200 <tsahyt> liste: I'm pretty sure that I do yes, I already compiled several gtk versions with cabal, and gtk-0.13.9 from lts-2.22 compiled just a minute ago.
2015-08-14 12:40:33 +0200 <MagBo> I'm thinking of somthing like making an example project in test/ directory with its own cabal file and test library from this example.
2015-08-14 12:39:53 +0200 <MagBo> I wrote a library that provides rebuilding and configuration utility to applications (projects that have Executable in their cabal file)
2015-08-14 10:01:14 +0200 <suppi> too much work when I didn't have any problem with cabal in the first place on this project.
2015-08-14 10:00:06 +0200 <suppi> so I gave up and continued with cabal
2015-08-14 09:37:05 +0200 <Axman6> `cabal isntall --global yesod lens` then boil some tea and drink it with your laptop
2015-08-14 09:35:18 +0200 <liste> I used to have both the EclipseFP tools and cabal installed, and they used different versions of Cabal library
2015-08-14 09:34:18 +0200 <suppi> greves, My cabal foo is lacking, so I just install everything in a sandbox. this is the easiest way for me to avoid cabal hell.
2015-08-14 09:32:05 +0200 <greves> not so with cabal?
2015-08-14 09:30:19 +0200 <suppi> cabal install downloads haskell packages and compiles them
