I have been trying to get a simple-integer build for GHC without success. It
always ends with the build going through fine, but when I try to run ghci I
GHCi, version 6.12.3: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/ :? for help
Loading package ghc-prim ... linking ... done.
ple-0.1.0.0.o: unknown symbol `base_ControlziExceptionziBase_patError_info'
Loading package integer-simple ... linking ... ghc: unable to load package
My MO is to
. get binary GHC package, install it and put it on the path;
. unpack the source distribution and set up build.mk, usually with
quicktest, always with INTEGER_LIBRARY = integer-simple;
. configure, build and install;
. switch the path over from the binary to the new build and run
I have tried this many combinations of build and source trees from
ghc-6.12.1 up to 7.0.4 on CentOS/RHEL 5 & 6 with the same result.
The above output was taken from a 6.12.3 source tree built with 6.12.2
. I use 6.12.3 binaries heavily on CentOS 5 with no issue.
. On the couple of occasions I have tried a vanilla build (no
build.mk), the build breaks down with GMP link errors. Configuring with
--with-gmp-includes=/usr/local/include and --with-gmp-libs=/usr/local/lib
didn't help. (I did not persist for obvious reasons.)
. At least Mik Konecny appears to got this to work for 6.12.3
'Tis all very odd! Anybody any idea what I am doing wrong?
