I&#39;m new to Haskell, so I&#39;m not able to comment on packaging strateg=
ies. <br>
I simply listen to what experts say, trying to make my own sense of it. </p=

It is possible and desirable to manage haskell packages with pacman on Arch=
 Linux!<br>It is just not perfect yet - the arch-haskell project needs your=
 help. Perhaps you could point Ian Ross this way too.<br>(For me personally=
, using the [haskell] and [haskell-extra] repositories has worked out well =
so far, and it&#39;s nice knowing everything is managed properly by pacman.=

&gt;&gt;&gt; I&#39;m not sure why that error happened but it happened to me=
&gt;&gt; The problem seems to be that those files were not part of any pack=
&gt;&gt; but now are in ghc.<br>
&gt;&gt;&gt; I removed the offending files manually and tried again, and ra=
n into more problems (although everything installed, there were many warnin=
gs about interface files<br>
&gt;&gt;&gt; being the wrong version and being skipped).<br>
&gt;&gt;&gt; So I&#39;m not sure what the correct way out is. Perhaps it wi=
ll require some manual removals then reinstalls.<br>
&gt;&gt; This is a problem with ghc-pkg version. For previous version of gh=
c I had to do:<br>
&gt;&gt; =C2=A0 $ pacman -Rcs ghc<br>
&gt;&gt; then reinstall ghc and needed haskell-* packages. I think you&#39;=
ll want<br>
&gt;&gt; to remove the offending files before installing ghc again. I hope =
&gt;&gt; solve the problem.<br>
</div><div>&gt; Why is it that every single time there is a ghc-update, I h=
ave to<br>
&gt; remove everything and reinstall everything haskell related. Haskell is=
&gt; such a cool language but keeping a Haskell environment up-to-date is<b=
&gt; sometimes just a real pain.<br>
</div>As Haskell newbie and new born Hakyll users, I&#39;ve found recent<br=
replies [1] by Ian Ross interesting:<br>
&quot;I&#39;m also using Arch Linux on x86_64. =C2=A0I would strongly recom=
mend *not*<br>
using the Arch packages for most Haskell things. =C2=A0I use hsenv instead.=
I haven&#39;t switched myself and I still use the packages, but I started t=
wonder if Ian&#39;s got the point indeed.<br>
