Ok, I think that was because I was using ghc 7.0.4, I updated to 7.4 (haskell platform latest version) and also first uninstalled the haskell platform and nuked ~/.ghc and ~/.cabal and started over (but now using jobs:8 in ~/.cabal/config after having updated to cabal-install- ) and quickly got up to date. cabal-dev also installed fine. Let’s hope I get an easier ride from now on. :-)
