I'm trying to follow installation steps on OpenSolaris 2009.06, but glib
installation fails with:
$ cabal install --user glib
warning: #warning Setup.hs is guessing the version of Cabal. If
compilation of Setup.hs fails use -DCABAL_VERSION_MINOR=x for Cabal
version 1.x.0 when building (prefixed by --ghc-option= when using the
[1 of 2] Compiling Gtk2HsSetup (
does not export
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
glib-0.12.0 failed during the configure step. The exception was:
My cabal is:
$ cabal --version
cabal-install version 0.8.2
using version 188.8.131.52 of the Cabal library
And ghc is:
$ ghc --version
The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 6.10.4
Do you have any idea what to do with this failure? i.e. is my cabal old
or is it something different...
PS: Manatee screenshots are amazing and your code lines list even more!
