2016-06-09 15:44:22 +0200 <bernalex> ertesx: if it appears that I am flaming, I want to make it clear that I am not. all I said was that I wish intero.el worked with cabal-install. and in came the stack-brigade. ;)
2016-06-09 15:40:40 +0200 <ertesx> although cabal sandboxes have worked for me
2016-06-09 15:39:49 +0200 <bernalex> I use cabal-install and am happy with that.
2016-06-09 12:13:05 +0200 <quchen> Stack is a wrapper around Cabal that makes things fairly easy.
2016-06-09 12:07:44 +0200 <hexagoxel> tobiasBora: try installing `Cabal` manually first.
2016-06-09 12:07:01 +0200 <magneticduck> tobiasBora: 1) cabal update ; cabal install cabal
2016-06-09 12:05:41 +0200 <magneticduck> tobiasBora: any reason to not upgrade cabal?
2016-06-09 12:05:14 +0200 <tobiasBora> I would like to install diagrams-gtk, but my cabal version is 1.22.8 while "The package 'cairo' requires Cabal library version -any && >=1.24"
2016-06-09 06:08:52 +0200 <Squarism> so that part of cabal/hunit is a bit buggy?
2016-06-09 06:00:53 +0200 <glguy> All that cabal knows is that it ran the test executable and it returned a success code
2016-06-09 06:00:27 +0200 <Squarism> cabal file is here : https://github.com/gurgl/julius-caesar/blob/master/haskelltest1.cabal
2016-06-09 06:00:26 +0200 <glguy> Squarism: Oh, the problem is that you're expecting to see more output than a cabal exitcode-stdio can show
2016-06-09 05:56:10 +0200 <glguy> Maybe in your cabal file or project directory structure; maybe you're not running the version of the tests represented in this file
2016-06-09 05:45:07 +0200 <Squarism> why o why do i get the result: "1 of 1 test suites (1 of 1 test cases) passed." when running "cabal test" where my test file looks like this : http://pastebin.com/gUhUuUQj
2016-06-09 00:30:03 +0200 <athan> man, removing ~/.cabal is taking a long time :|
2016-06-09 00:26:14 +0200 <roboguy`> athan: I don't think that's a cabal install issue. Sounds like the tar archive on hackage is corrupt
2016-06-09 00:25:49 +0200 <athan> I'm on the latest cabal-install also
2016-06-09 00:25:44 +0200 <athan> roboguy`: many times :\ I'm destroying ~/.cabal, hopefully that will do the trick
2016-06-09 00:23:37 +0200 <athan> What should I do if cabal-install fails with "trucated tar archive"?
2016-06-09 00:14:55 +0200 <rodlogic> is there a way to specify PKG_CONFIG_PATH in a cabal file?
2016-06-08 19:14:46 +0200 <DanielDiaz> is it possible to specify flags for dependencies in the cabal.config file?
2016-06-08 16:26:03 +0200 <tdammers> install via cabal
2016-06-08 16:25:41 +0200 <arcetera> install xmonad via cabal or whatever, or deal with an old version and wait for it to be updated in ports?
2016-06-08 15:26:18 +0200 <unexisting> I installed the latest Haskell platform, but can't install ghc-mod via cabal ('dependencies can't be resolved' for transformers).
2016-06-08 10:37:18 +0200 <lemonxah> i can use hackage and cabal to get the depencies i need but i am unsure as how to structure a project so that i have multiple files and packages all compile into one app / library
2016-06-08 10:36:41 +0200 <quchen> hvr: Thanks for that :-) I'm not arguing against cabal(install) here!
2016-06-08 10:35:39 +0200 <hvr> quchen: anyway, I'm biased of course, as I'm contributing lots of my time to Hackage & cabal these days
2016-06-08 10:31:04 +0200 <quchen> Let's not explain the difference between cabal and cabal-install to a beginner.
2016-06-08 10:30:39 +0200 <merijn> lemonxah: So the real question is "stack or use cabal directly"
2016-06-08 10:30:27 +0200 <merijn> lemonxah: Wrong question, stack is a wrapper around cabal
2016-06-08 10:30:05 +0200 <lemonxah> which is best to use? stack of cabal?
2016-06-08 06:36:15 +0200 <fProgrammer> mgsloan: So slack is a wrapper around cabal which sandboxes by FPComplete; it also downloads different versions of ghc/ghci etc for each project if required
2016-06-08 06:31:44 +0200 <Welkin> oh, that is for cabal sandboxes
2016-06-08 06:31:29 +0200 <Welkin> Cale: it just uses cabal
2016-06-08 02:44:53 +0200 <c_wraith> cabal list --simple-output | awk "{ print \$1 }" | uniq | wc -l
