Installing GenI

1. Every time I try to cabal install GenI, it keeps trying to build wxcore (and fails!)

  • Solution: 2009-02-14. This is a tricky one. For some reason cabal-install keeps trying to re-install wx

cabal install wx --configure-opt="--user --enable-split-objs --hcprof (tested on 2009-02-12, Ubuntu Intrepid, wxWidgets 2.8, GHC 6.10.1)

1. I get this error when I try to do runhaskell Setup configure:

GHCi runtime linker: fatal error: I found a duplicate definition for symbol
   waitForProcess
whilst processing object file
   /home/me/.cabal/lib/process-1.0.1.1/ghc-6.10.1/HSprocess-1.0.1.1.o
This could be caused by:
   * Loading two different object files which export the same symbol
   * Specifying the same object file twice on the GHCi command line
   * An incorrect `package.conf' entry, causing some object to be
     loaded twice.
GHCi cannot safely continue in this situation.  Exiting now.  Sorry.
  • Workaround: 2009-02-14: I don't know the proper solution to this yet, but I found that it helps to ghc --make Setup and then call ./Setup instead of runhaskell Setup

1. I get this error when I run GenI (wxHaskell 0.11 ; wxWidgets 2.8), and GenI refuses to load

(process:11334): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: /build/buildd/glib2.0-2.18.2/gobject/gtype.c:2458: initialization assertion failed, use IA__g_type_init() prior to this function

How to do cool things

1. How do I use the paraphrase selection mechanism documented in A Symbolic Approach to Near-Deterministic Surface Realisation using Tree Adjoining Grammar?

  • At the time of this writing (2009-01-22), there is no documentation on this. Sorry. See ParaphraseSelection? and ask Eric Kow for more details.
