1) I did an Ubuntu purge followed by an install. Afterwards I rebuilt ghc
6.8.2. The same d*mn "unknown package: unix-126.96.36.199" message when I try to
bytestring via runhaskell Setup.hs configure.
2) This strongly looks like the package database manager, i.e. ghc-pkg.
Source please so I can understand where this d*amn "unknown package:
unix-188.8.131.52" message is coming from and why?
3) Serious rant mode on ... I am a computer industry veteran(decades) who is
trying to convince, coggle, etc. younger colleagues about the usefulness of
FPLs for correctness, etc, and then => "unknown package ....".
