2014-04-18 00:11:40 +0200 <Rarrikins> It comes with cabal
2014-04-18 00:11:33 +0200 <super_teufel> if I install ghc alone , I will not have cabal
2014-04-17 23:40:59 +0200 <tapuu> I cant really increase the ram on this machine, and I need a version of cabal-install thats newer than the one in the repos so i can use a cabal sandbox
2014-04-17 23:20:37 +0200 <tapuu> Is there anywhere I can get a binary of the latest version of cabal-install for linux x86_64?
2014-04-17 23:12:49 +0200 <tapuu> Does cabal-install compile on ghc 7.8.2?
2014-04-17 22:52:44 +0200 <Handyman> Cale: Yeah, my initial instinct was to use BBEdit with it. Of course, I don't get docs support / cabal support / etc that way but...
2014-04-17 22:37:19 +0200 <they> I don't think you really need to do cabal install cabal-install.
2014-04-17 22:35:57 +0200 <Handyman> 1. Install ghc (sudo port install ghc). 2. cabal update 3. cabal install cabal-install (this fails)
2014-04-17 22:35:34 +0200 <Handyman> It seems that cabal-install is requiring HTTP-4000.2.4 which is incompatible with the referenced
2014-04-17 22:35:27 +0200 <Handyman> I get a compiler error when I run "cabal install cabal-install" in the HTTP library.
2014-04-17 21:12:00 +0200 <dmj`> no need to remove cabal though, unless you want latest
2014-04-17 21:11:14 +0200 <dmj`> if you want to start all over fresh: sudo /Library/Haskell/bin/uninstall-hs all --remove, to get rid of the platform, delete your ~/.cabal and ~/.ghc, and I think any ghc stuff in /usr/local/bin
2014-04-17 21:10:00 +0200 <monochrom> having cabal installed should be of no consequence
2014-04-17 21:09:37 +0200 <activeaspect> dmj`: k, i think i have some left over files from 7.6.3. it thinks i still have a cabal installed
2014-04-17 21:03:39 +0200 <activeaspect> has anyone managed to install the ghc 7.8.2 mac os x binary? im getting an error "ghc-cabal: /usr/local/share/doc/ghc/html: does not exist"
2014-04-17 19:38:45 +0200 <Jinusai> Is there a way to automatically add the .cabal-sandbox/bin directory to PATH when using cabal sandbox?
2014-04-17 19:05:30 +0200 <mmachenry> Is there a way to tell cabal to favor my new extra-lib-dirs?
2014-04-17 18:59:16 +0200 <mmachenry> I am trying to cabal install postgresql-simple but I am getting link errors because the default /usr/lib installed psql is 8.4. 9.2 is installed on this system in an alternate path. I need to change include-dirs in the cabal file but I don't own the package. Is there a recommended way to do this?
2014-04-17 18:26:09 +0200 <BeardedCoder> I'd be interested in hearing the answer to that. I just have a "play" cabal app that's a dumping ground for testing stuff out
2014-04-17 18:24:31 +0200 <Jinusai> Hey, in the past I have been using hsenv to easily play around with some packages, i.e. (1) hsenv, (2) source .hsenv/bin/activate (3) cabal install interestingPackage (4) ghci. Is there some way to have the same smooth experience with cabal sandbox? Because (1) cabal sandbox init (2) cabal init (3) modify build-depends by hand (4) cabal repl seems annoying
2014-04-17 17:13:46 +0200 <tdammers> I get the same situation in a cabal sandbox
2014-04-17 17:08:30 +0200 <tdammers> I forced >= 1.4 in the .cabal
2014-04-17 15:14:57 +0200 <gowda> dcoutts: and run cabal install project-dir/?
2014-04-17 15:13:56 +0200 <gowda> Hello! How do I install a package outside the sandbox? e.g. cabal install --global installs it in .cabal-sandbox, but I'd like it to go to ~/.cabal/bin or the systemwide cabal bin
2014-04-17 13:57:59 +0200 <Phillemann> Is there a way to integrate hlint into cabal, so that it is run before/after the source files are compiled?
2014-04-17 08:28:17 +0200 <dmp1ce> I'm using Arch Linux, but I'm really not sure how to get the up-to-date GHC and cabal-install. What is recommended?
2014-04-17 08:23:29 +0200 <dmp1ce> I'm trying to write a program using HDBC and cabal. When I run "cabal install" to install dependencies I get "ghc: out of memory (requested 1048576 bytes)" after Compiling Data.Text.Lazy.Builder.RealFloat What should I do to resolve this?
2014-04-17 08:09:56 +0200 <stevejb> Does anyone have a moment to look at my cabal error here: http://ix.io/bJG
2014-04-17 07:08:24 +0200 <napping> can you actually run cabal build --disable-optimization
2014-04-17 07:08:09 +0200 <napping> I think I've turned optimization off in my cabal config
2014-04-17 07:06:37 +0200 <johnw> that's a string from within my cabal executable
2014-04-17 07:06:32 +0200 <johnw> "'ghc-options: -O' is not needed. Cabal automatically adds the '-O' flag. Setting it yourself interferes with the --disable-optimization flag."
2014-04-17 06:56:58 +0200 <johnw> and just don't specify it at all in your .cabal file
2014-04-17 06:56:21 +0200 <napping> Is there a good way to make optimization optional in a cabal file?
2014-04-17 02:18:31 +0200 <sm> lispy: ha! that seems to have been it. With the 32-bit windows ghc, cabal works better
