[Haskell-cafe] Re: Installing Haskell on OSX

I uninstalled all ports and macports, to try with gtk-osx

Once I did all of this, leksah builds, but leksah-server don't, with  
problems with version of libgthread2.

I'm at "jhbuild build meta-gtk-osx-bootstrap" step of GTK-OSX.

Once the next step ("jhbuild build meta-gtk-osx-core") is finished,  
and all is fine (and really I hope it), there are some consideration,  
before directly reinstall cabal gtk packages, and reinstall leksah? I  
ask because it sais thath jhbuild is needed to build gtk apps.


Note: Somebody wants a Macbook? I sell mine :P
