2015-04-24 16:02:25 +0200 <geekosaur> saml: sandboxes are partial. hsenv is more like virtualenv... but rarely necessary
2015-04-24 03:40:43 +0200 <saml_> do you recommend hsenv?
2015-04-08 15:36:56 +0200 <merijn> RaceCondition: I don't even use hsenv or anything fancy like that
2015-04-08 15:31:36 +0200 <srhb> RaceCondition: Probably some kind of hsenv usage.
2015-03-31 01:44:19 +0200 <mgsloan> For readers of the archive: I figured out how to fix my hsenv. "rm .hsenv/ghc_pkg_db/package.cache; cp .hsenv/ghc/lib/ghc-7.10.1/package.conf.d/package.cache .hsenv/ghc_pkg_db/package.cache"
2015-03-31 01:31:46 +0200 <mgsloan> Yeah, seems like people would notice hsenv not working quite rapidly, so must be some local issue..
2015-03-31 01:28:31 +0200 <mgsloan> Hrmm hsenv doesn't seem to work with GHC 7.10. Has anyone tried that? https://gist.github.com/mgsloan/6eb77382be523ad04137
2015-03-30 16:18:21 +0200 <merijn> I've mostly found hsenv a bit cumbersome without much value, but YMMV
2015-03-30 16:17:59 +0200 <geekosaur> hsenv might be slightly easier to script for that workflow though
2015-03-13 23:48:16 +0100 <levi> sm: There's a tool called hsenv that's designed for working with multiple versions of ghc; might work a bit better than regular cabal sandboxes.
2015-03-09 07:14:00 +0100 <Javran> what about hsenv?
2015-03-05 21:51:33 +0100 <Javran> btw I compiled ghc 7.10, to get it to work with hsenv, how should I prepare the tarball file?
2015-02-22 05:49:58 +0100 <Javran> carter: I don't have alex local installed so I guess hsenv would be safer.. ok I'll try to compile it without hsenv
2015-02-22 05:48:25 +0100 <carter> Javran: dont use hsenv
2015-02-22 05:46:57 +0100 <carter> why are you trying to use hsenv though
2015-02-22 05:41:19 +0100 <Javran> can I use hsenv to compile ghc?
2015-02-17 15:47:06 +0100 <geekosaur> nschoe, there is also hsenv which sandboxes ghc installations. it's not very widely used though because that is usually overkill
2015-02-03 14:46:53 +0100 <geekosaur> hsenv sandboxes multiple ghc installations
2015-02-03 14:46:22 +0100 <hodapp> what about hsenv?
2015-02-01 19:13:29 +0100 <geekosaur> MrPopinjay, fgor multiple ghc releases there is hsenv
2015-01-18 20:02:46 +0100 <therp> johnw: tempting. is there a way without emacs? I am using hsenv, and I haven't set up the emacs integration yet.
2015-01-11 12:44:19 +0100 <therp> quchen: my local "cabal" probably suffers from the same problem as hackage. I am using hsenv just in case that matters. I see Data.Packed.* showing up in my haddock coverage report though. strange.
2015-01-03 16:49:44 +0100 <therp> are people here happy with hsenv? I am looking for a solution that my project-specific haskell installation doesn't bitrot, when I came after a couple of months. So I am thinking about just dumping a whole GHC environment into my project dirs.
2015-01-02 02:37:31 +0100 <geekosaur> just remove the hsenv binary manually
2015-01-02 02:36:50 +0100 <calvinx> for some reason, ghc-pkg cannot find the hsenv that I have previously installed using cabal install……. :-/
2015-01-02 02:34:47 +0100 <lachenmayer> so it'll likely be something like "hsenv-0.5"
2015-01-02 02:31:32 +0100 <calvinx> `which hsenv` says “/Users/calvin/Library/Haskell/bin/hsenv"
2015-01-02 02:31:22 +0100 <calvinx> ghc-pkg: cannot find package hsenv
2014-12-30 12:07:20 +0100 <pnielsen> calvinx: hsenv existed before cabal got the sandbox feature
2014-12-30 11:55:09 +0100 <calvinx> does anyone know what’s the difference between cabal sandbox and hsenv (a 3rd party tool to isolate your cabal environment) ?
2014-10-23 22:51:08 +0200 <SwashBuckla> thsig_: use hsenv!
2014-10-23 22:45:19 +0200 <SwashBuckla> has anyone here used hsenv to install a different version of `base`?
2014-10-23 18:25:06 +0200 <geekosaur> use hsenv to install an appropriate sandboxed ghc with the correct version of process
2014-10-23 18:23:38 +0200 <geekosaur> you'll need to use something like hsenv for that
2014-10-23 07:52:19 +0200 <monochrom> hsenv, cabal-dev, cabal-install
