[Haskell-cafe] cannot install base-184.108.40.206 package

how can I install the base-220.127.116.11 package. I tried first
> cabal install base
that gives me this error:
Non-exhaustive patterns in lambda
I googled for this error and found nothing but the simple statement in
the track system http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/hackage/ticket/605:
"cabal install base is not expected to work, however the error message
should be better, see #597. "
(but the link to #547 doesn't solve the problem either)
So I downloaded base-18.104.22.168 package from hackage and run:
> runhaskell Setup configure
which gives this error:
attempting to use module `Prelude' (./Prelude.hs) which is not loaded
Then I noticed that there is configure script in the base-22.214.171.124 dir,
so executed this which yields this error message:
config.status: error: cannot find input file: `base.buildinfo.in'
Why is it so complicated to install the base package?
Thanks for any help!
