Hello together,

I am new to xmonad. I installed it on my gentoo system using the haskell
overlay and "emerge xmonad".

No I want to change the configuration:
I tried uncommenting the following lines in

(Line 69)
import qualified XMonadContrib.HintedTile
(Line 248)
, XMonadContrib.HintedTile.tall nmaster delta ratio

and did emerge -av xmonad:

XMonadContrib/HintedTile.hs:55:13: Not in scope: `modifyLayout'

What am I doing wrong?
