[Haskell-cafe] HP + Gtk2hs?

- Apart from HP providing GHC 6.10.4 while Gtk2hs currently requires 6.10.3, it appears that the Gtk2hs installer package doesn't like GHC being installed in a path with spaces. Apparently Gtk2hs has a bug tracker. (I only just discovered this, so perhaps it needs to be more prominent?) Somebody pointed out this bug 6 months ago. Somebody else posted a potential fix a month ago. There is no visible activity from the developers. (I emphasize "visible". Maybe they've seen this and they're working on it, but there's no visible indication of activity.)

Thank you so much for this post. I tried to install Gtk2hs yesterday to play with
its Cairo bindings and I hit the "Setup found what appears to be a
 non-working installation of GHC" brickwall. I found a closed ticket about this problem: http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/gtk2hs/ticket/1117
I posted this issue on the Gtk2hs-devel mailing list and got a response today:

I don't think I have the will to uninstall the Haskell Platform and everything I've set up just to install in a path with no spaces. :)
