2015-08-21 19:48:57 +0200 <codedmart> I have this in a cabal file https://github.com/AtnNn/haskell-rethinkdb/blob/f700133a4c2935389e1dd69ef887ae5f84cbe58a/rethinkdb… under an if flag(dev). Travis cabal check is failing on 7.10 with `'ghc-prof-options: -fprof-auto' is fine during development…`
2015-08-20 08:30:59 +0200 <xelxebar> I don't really know nix all that well, and while the problem persists, I can't really use my dev tools. So, this is really silly, but I wrote a cabal wrapper to manage a "cabal store" of individually sandboxed packages.
2015-08-11 10:33:46 +0200 <bennofs> + some scripting so I can load any haskell project with a cabal file in 3 commands (and it fetches most haskell lib deps from binary cache, so it's fast (but only for GHC 7.10)): themplate init <project> haskell-nix; cd <project>; dev-shell :)
2015-08-06 01:00:54 +0200 <drewbert> We just need to get stack support into ghc-mod, flymake, leksah, and all the other dev tools that rely on a traditional cabal setup.
2015-07-25 02:37:20 +0200dcouttsnotes that a dev branch of cabal-install has nix-style shared sandboxes
2015-07-18 19:58:03 +0200 <fizbin> Are you using cabal-dev?
2015-07-11 16:46:10 +0200 <favetelinguis> Im trying to get HDBC working on my mac but i dont understand what this is? http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/libghc-hdbc-sqlite3-dev It is required for setting up hdbc on linux. Why is not the cabal hdbc and hdbc-sqlite3 enogh for hdbc?
2015-07-07 13:51:24 +0200 <dcoutts> (or test out the latest dev version of cabal-install and try out the new setup-deps feature)

2015-06-24 10:31:08 +0200 <barrucadu> m0rphism: Without looking into it, I assume cabal-dev's sandbox functionality predates cabal's
2015-06-24 10:30:47 +0200 <m0rphism> barrucadu: Is there some benefit for using regular cabal with sandboxes? I didn't knew this was possible. Where was the motivation for cabal-dev then?
2015-06-24 10:26:17 +0200 <m0rphism> IIRC to use cabal-dev I first cleaned the previous package conflict be removing the packages installed via regular cabal by removing ~/.cabal and then only used plain cabal to install cabal-dev.
2015-06-24 10:23:46 +0200 <m0rphism> haskell783: nix and stackage take a bit time to get into, cabal-dev behaves the same as cabal, but by default installs everything into $(pwd)/cabal-dev
2015-06-24 10:22:43 +0200 <m0rphism> haskell783: Instead the current practices seem to use either cabal-dev, which builds each project including its dependencies in a sandbox,
2015-06-23 02:19:59 +0200 <rofer> Is there a cabal-dev channel I could poke people in?
2015-05-30 12:53:50 +0200 <ph88> setup-Simple-Cabal- The pkg-config package 'fftw3f' version >=3.3 && <4 is required but it could not be found. do i need to install libfftw3-dev ?
2015-05-01 20:37:22 +0200 <slack1256> jo_os: http://dev.stephendiehl.com/hask/#cabal the easy way is explained there
2015-04-27 15:19:23 +0200 <benzrf> is there a notion of dev dependencies for cabal
2015-04-26 21:39:47 +0200 <dmj`> neuroserpens: when you specify the "O" it corresponds to Core transformations, the more transformations the more efficient your code can become, but the longer it will take to compile, so maybe make a flag "dev" "prod" etc. in your cabal file for those ghc-options
2015-04-18 17:53:35 +0200 <athan> You can also make your own isolated sandbox and use `cabal sandbox add-source ~/dev/foo` to add your functionality
2015-04-05 07:31:14 +0200 <Fylwind> but yeah I think the Cabal API docs are easier to read than the Cabal dev docs, but that's probably because I sort of already know where to look for things and don't need all the extra explanatory 'fluff'
2015-04-04 18:36:32 +0200 <noteventime> Geraldus: What happens if you set it to something explicit (the options here are: ghci, cabal-repl, cabal-dev, cabal-ghci)?
2015-04-03 16:15:07 +0200 <ph88> hey how can i make this work on windows? E:\dev\fuzzy>cabal install fft Resolving dependencies...

2015-03-15 20:27:22 +0100 <m0rphism> rui3: how are you installing your dependencies? I assume either cabal or cabal-dev?
2015-03-09 21:38:58 +0100 <gdoteof> i should probably clean the dev container at this point. in production i make the container on the fly with cabal install --only-dependencies
2015-02-28 18:41:05 +0100 <Cale> I don't know what it's called on arch, but on Mint, there's a libgtksourceview-3.0-dev package which you'd want to install before installing the cabal package for the Haskell binding.
2015-02-26 07:05:58 +0100 <pacak> zav: Because cabal-dev is no longer supported
2015-02-26 07:02:13 +0100 <zav> cabal sandbox vs cabal-dev anyone?
2015-02-13 18:48:58 +0100 <clintm> I just want to confirm that I'm on the right track with something. It's been a solid year since I've written anything and the dev environment seems to have changed. If I start from a bare machine with the latest stable ghc, and haskell/cabal from github, is it expected that if I want everything to work correctly, I sandbox everything else and symlink the executables? happy and alex come to mind.
2015-01-22 02:00:53 +0100 <meditans> benzrf: is here any cabal dev I could ask, here (I'm not posting this question in a mailing list because I suspect that the answer is no, and would like a quick check)
2015-01-17 23:40:13 +0100 <wolftune> Cale: the command I ran was cabal configure -f dev --enable-tests && cabal build -j5
2015-01-14 23:31:20 +0100 <luite> SrPx: you shouldn't install cabal 1.23 unles you want to do cabal dev, use the 1.22 branch
2015-01-12 18:32:12 +0100 <mpickering> cabal-dev is unmaintained now I think
2015-01-12 18:30:20 +0100 <developernotes> Has anyone run into a similar failure when attempting to install cabal-dev: http://pastie.org/9827794
2015-01-12 18:20:54 +0100 <developernotes> I am attempting to install cabal-dev with a fresh haskell install on OS X. I receive the following error (http://pastie.org/9827794) as it checks the dependencies. Any suggestions?
