[Haskell-cafe] test driving cabal install... cabal install and
normal install (runghc Setup) don't mix... two package.conf files...

After a little drama with zlib, I managed to get cabal-install installed.
I then attempted to do
cabal install HAppS-Server
since this is a module with a lot of dependencies, and in rapid
development flux, so perenially painful for me to install.
The result is that I managed to install everything up to HAppS-State,
which I think is the last dependency, but then seemed to hang
indefinitely in the middle of installing HAppS-Server at the end.
OK, I thought, then perhaps I can do normal runghc Setup.hs after
downloading and unzipping the tar from
However, this resulted in error
thartman at thartman-laptop:~/haskellInstalls/smallInstalls/HAppS-Server-0.9.2.1>runghc
Setup.hs: At least the following dependencies are missing:
Strange, because I had just installed that module via cabal-install,
and I could load it in ghci with :m +HappS.Data.
I then ran ghc-pkg and got this strange result that my packages were
broken into two different files. Is this by design?
Cabal-184.108.40.206, Cabal-1.3.11, Cabal-1.5.2, DeepArrow-0.2,
HAppS-Data-0.9.2.1, HAppS-IxSet-0.9.2.1, HAppS-State-0.9.2.1,
I am curious if anybody else is able to install HAppS-Server using
cabal install, and whether they can shed any light on the other isuses
