2014-04-22 22:51:36 +0200 <geekosaur> in which case you should probably not be trying to reinstall it in the sandbox; consider using hsenv instead so you can sandbox global packages
2014-04-17 18:33:51 +0200 <Jinusai> ReinH: Maybe I just have to get used to this, but for playing around hsenv seemed more comfortable to me
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
2014-04-14 21:55:05 +0200 <Zekka> I haven't tried hsenv, is that similar to cabal sandbox?
2014-04-14 21:55:00 +0200 <merijn> awestroke: That's not very constructive advice and hsenv is a bit of a non-solution
2014-04-14 21:54:26 +0200 <awestroke> Zekka: rm -rf ~/.ghc ~/.cabal, or get hsenv
2014-04-14 20:27:04 +0200 <zq> hsenv sae
2014-04-10 07:12:24 +0200 <dmj`> I used to C-c C-l on any file back when I used hsenv and since ghci and my cabal dir were "global" to that directory, it worked fine
2014-04-09 23:02:29 +0200 <geekosaur> wonder if you're on one of those syste,s that don't default terminals to +ls because everyoen knows you put everything in ~/.bashrc (and then find out that rvm, hsenv, perlbrew, virtualenv, etc. won't work right...)
2014-04-09 03:52:28 +0200 <geekosaur> cabal sandbox can sandbox the user package db, hsenv sandboxes the whole thing
2014-04-09 03:52:02 +0200 <geekosaur> athan: hsenv
2014-04-09 02:33:50 +0200 <hpc> i don't see the purpose of hsenv in the presence of those options and binaries
2014-04-09 02:32:49 +0200 <conal> what's hsenv about? related?
2014-04-08 06:17:32 +0200 <bitemyapp> newsham: alternately, you can use an hsenv for isolation from your global packages.
2014-04-02 22:03:49 +0200 <awestroke> so, what should I do now? Get hsenv, then what? I don't know off the top of my head the versions for each package, and if I install them with "cabal install" one at a time I get "Warning: This package indirectly depends on multiple versions of the same package [...]"
2014-04-02 22:01:48 +0200 <bitemyapp> awestroke: hsenv when sandboxes aren't enough isolation.
2014-04-02 22:01:35 +0200 <sked> awestroke: hsenv makes cabal much, much more enjoyable
2014-04-02 22:01:04 +0200 <sked> awestroke: do you use e.g. hsenv?
2014-04-02 21:18:07 +0200 <bitemyapp> edwardk: how do you test multiple GHCs? hsenv?
2014-04-02 13:00:31 +0200 <Sensora> Hey, I'm using Archlinux and its package manager pacman in order to install Haskell packages. The only package I have installed via cabal-install is hsenv. Now I want to update hsenv to the newest version. How do I do this in the cleanest way possible? Remove .ghc and .cabal and cabal install again? Would I still need to ghc-pkg unregister?
2014-04-02 04:35:45 +0200 <dmj`> johnw: I switched to cabal sandboxes, wasn't too bad, miss hsenv sometimes
2014-04-02 04:33:22 +0200 <johnw> hmm.. packunused really doesn't like running within an hsenv environment
2014-03-29 18:13:55 +0100 <geekosaur> hsenv?
2014-03-29 00:18:54 +0100 <bitemyapp> sylvanica: I generally use cabal sandboxes, but if you need to complete ghost the global environment, you could use hsenv.
2014-03-26 08:24:57 +0100 <wirrbel> hi, I am using cabal with hsenv
2014-03-21 00:38:14 +0100 <cwvh> I still hsenv things that I really don't care about. For example, testing a package that I read on a blog or similar.
2014-03-21 00:36:40 +0100 <cwvh> I don't find cabal to be any problem these days with hsenv and cabal sandboxes.
2014-03-20 21:45:51 +0100 <akegalj> quchen: that works with hsenv tool
2014-03-17 23:05:06 +0100 <dmj`> with hsenv everything just works, but it's not cross-platform since it uses unix and not unix-compat
2014-03-17 19:11:47 +0100 <byorgey> dcoutts, jle`: cabal-dev passes flags. hsenv messes with your PATH.
2014-03-17 19:11:46 +0100 <jle`> dcoutts: am i thinking of hsenv?
2014-03-17 01:27:27 +0100 <cwvh> `hsenv` is another package installation alternative that doesn't seem to get much love these days
2014-03-15 02:03:38 +0100 <dmj`> geekosaur: it's in .hsenv/ghc_pkg_db/
2014-03-15 02:02:20 +0100 <dmj`> geekosaur: I'm using hsenv if that makes a difference
2014-03-14 21:57:36 +0100 <ofan> is hsenv compatible with cabal-sandbox?
