 Yes, that is the folder to delete to start with a clean installation.

Perhaps the /Users/MyUser/.ghc folder is causing your problem?

Hi All.
I'm using GHC with MacOS X 10.6.7 (Xcode4). I've installed GHC 7.0.3 and the HackageDB package hsgsom. Then, for my motivation, I've uninstalled GHC.
To remove GHC I've used the uninstaller tool and I've manually removed the folder /Library/Frameworks/GHC.framework. I've also manually removed the folder /Users/MyUser/Library/Haskell and the folder /Users/MyUser/.cabal

Now I've installed GHC again, but when I try to install the package hsgsom cabal tells to me that the package is already installed and I have to use the --reinstall flag. So, where the information of the installed packages are stored on my system? How can I remove all Haskell dependencies from my system in order to start with a clean installation?

Thanks in advance for any answer.
