My name's Kristoffer and I'm not really a user of Fedora per se, but I do however port Fedora packages to Mageia and the time of writing this I'm porting ghc, but there a slight problem building it.
Is there a ordered list to build the dependencies? I have ported SOME ghc-related packages already, but now I'm seeing some that uses BuildRequires that are built by ghc itself so I'd be happy if I could get any help with what dependencies to focus at.
Alex, Happy, HsColour should be the main focus if I'm not mistaken.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
I do know how to use urpmq --whatrequires, but it would be better to have a numbered list instead.
An IRC user in #fedora on Libera was asking why gprbuild was out of date
and I attempted updating. Worked through the spec in a rawhide mock build
and contributed an update to this bugzilla.
Please let me know what I missed and if I could help more. I am not
familiar with this software and don't know if disabling these patches is
the right thing to do. There is more cleanup that is needed in the spec and
I tried to keep everything commented out that was changed.
Thanks for any guidance,
