[Haskell-cafe] Re: Why does cabal unnecessarily reinstall dependencies?

I've noticed that ghc-6.10.4 did not work well with cabal-install
version 0.8.2. (cabal install gtk did not work.)

Everything was fine after I switched back to:

cabal-install version 0.6.2
using version of the Cabal library

and removing the Cabal 1.8... library package.

Cheers Christian
