I am writing because I want to install a program called hpodder
which is written in Haskell.
I am using Fedora 19 beta with these Haskell packages installed:
$ rpm -qa | grep haskell
My attempts to compile this program fails and my Haskell skills are
1. git clone https://github.com/jgoerzen/hpodder.git
2. cd hpodder
3. cabal install
Preprocessing library HaXml-1.20.2...
Ambiguous module name `Prelude':
it was found in multiple packages: base haskell98-126.96.36.199
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
HaXml-1.20.2 failed during the building phase. The exception was:
4. ./setup configure
setup: At least the following dependencies are missing:
make: *** [all] Error 1

Basically nearly all the changes for ghc-7.6.3 and the new approved
Haskell Packaging Guidelines are already tested and staged in pkg git
master branches, and I am planning to start pushing all the version
updates and rebuilds soon to F20 Rawhide.
Hi, it is a while since I last posted an update.
Firstly cabal-rpm-0.8.0 with the new revised packaging templates
is now in updates-testing. Basically it seems to be working ok
though I am planning to do a minor release soon with a few small
tweaks from testing with updating our packages for rawhide.
I have a script to help me do that - it can update most
packages (at least those without C library builddeps) completely.
It should be useful also for updating open package reviews
to the latest approved packaging guidelines.
Try it if you like or use the latest "cblrpm spec" and merge
the differences from *.spec.cblrpm if you prefer to compare
the changes explicitly.
ghc-7.6.3 and haskell-platform-2013.2 are in git and I am slowly
working through all 200+ packages updating them to latest releases
(where appropriate/possible) and building them locally to test.
Once it is all ready I will push it all to Rawhide with my rebuild
script for koji.
I would like to try to backport ghc-7.6.3 to F19 maybe after
it is released but I am not very confident right now about finding
time to do that. I am also thinking of backporting ghc-7.4.2 to
EPEL-6 perhaps (currently it is on 7.0.4).
I think that is the main news for now.
Thanks to Shakthi for helping with some package reviews this week. :)
