You are probably using an older version of Cabal. You can either upgrade
Cabal or, from the Edison README*:
This version of edison builds correctly with Cabal version 1.1.4,
which is shipped with GHC 6.4.2. To build on earlier versions,
it should suffice to:
in the .cabal files.
The 'hs-source-dir' cabal directive was depreciated in 1.1.4, but perhaps I
should have waited a bit longer to change it. OTOH, there isn't any good way
to deal with the change in the undecidable instances flag, since it was
outright changed. Grrrr..... *grumble* incompatible changes in minor
(*) Further, grrrr... in the above, I've fixed several embarrasing typos in
the text of the README.
Talk softly and drive a Sherman tank.
Laugh hard, it's a long way to the bank.
