2014-08-15 21:04:38 +0200 <mdgeorge4153> bennofs: not even with the version of cabal-install that is in cabal
2014-08-15 20:58:08 +0200 <bennofs> mdgeorge4153: if your cabal version that is recent enough, maybe --allow-newer works
2014-08-15 20:55:35 +0200 <mdgeorge4153> Hi. I'm trying to install a cabal package that needs an older version of glut than I have. The older version doesn't compile

2014-08-15 17:09:19 +0200 <clrnd> bennofs, yeah I think its a bug in cabal ...
2014-08-15 17:00:03 +0200 <bennofs> Is it possible to use cabal repl even if the package doesn't build?

2014-08-15 15:00:14 +0200 <bennofs> bernalex: cabal repl <name of test-suite>
2014-08-15 14:59:45 +0200 <bernalex> I did cabal configure --enable-tests, and then started cabal repl, and did import Test.Hspec.Wai.JSON
2014-08-15 14:57:05 +0200 <Fuuzetsu> blind guess: cabal configure --enable-tests && cabal repl
2014-08-15 14:56:11 +0200 <bernalex> is there a way to start "cabal repl" with the packages for the tests visible?

2014-08-15 14:44:12 +0200 <neutronest> I tried to rm the .ghc, and .cabal, and then cabal update, but it was not useful.......
2014-08-15 14:43:21 +0200 <neutronest> is anyone who faced a problem that when "cabal install http-enumerator", it said that there was some rejecting...

2014-08-15 12:22:41 +0200 <abc56889> how do you manage a project with local dependencies? is there a way to get cabal to find them automatically before downloading them from the web?

2014-08-15 11:25:59 +0200 <trap_exit> ion: google gave me http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Cabal/Developer-FAQ#Conditional_compilation which is not helpful
2014-08-15 10:57:47 +0200 <johnw> i think GHC supports it, but it's not in cabal yet
2014-08-15 10:56:54 +0200 <johnw> cabal install -j4
2014-08-15 10:55:08 +0200 <trap_exit> does cabal have this option to say "use all 4 cores"
2014-08-15 10:54:48 +0200 <trap_exit> maybe timing cabal makes it go faster since it knows its being watched
2014-08-15 10:54:08 +0200 <trap_exit> "cabal update; cabal install cabal-install"
2014-08-15 10:53:28 +0200 <oakwhiz> time cabal install cabal-install: 34 seconds
2014-08-15 10:51:43 +0200 <trap_exit> how long is "cabal install cabal-install" supposed to take? seems to have hung (> 5 minutes) at "Build Cabal-1.20.0.2 ..." for me
2014-08-15 09:44:25 +0200 <merijn> ij: Yup, "cabal install hlint" and then just run "hlint file.hs"
2014-08-15 07:21:49 +0200 <merijn> Man, I don't know who was responsible for implementing a hdevtools patch that makes it support cabal files, but I <3 this person
2014-08-15 04:40:12 +0200 <merijn> Why did the cabal defaults change to "avoid-reinstalls: False"?
2014-08-15 04:38:57 +0200 <merijn> Sense when is cabal automatically doing reinstalls without --force?
2014-08-15 04:38:10 +0200 <vanila> nitrix, I was going to look at it but I got cabal install problems
2014-08-15 04:33:18 +0200 <merijn> Plus I don't know whether cabal wouldn't do the "wrong thing" there either
2014-08-15 03:33:51 +0200 <fumieval> hi, is it possible to put C++ sources into a cabal package?
2014-08-15 02:39:13 +0200 <dolio> I don't think cabal clean clears out the libraries you've installed into the sandbox.
2014-08-15 02:38:13 +0200 <vanila> cabal clean doesn't seem help though
