Ticket #1169 (closed defect: wontfix)

Opened 8 years ago

Last modified 7 years ago

Makefile.am contains non-standard shell idioms, breaking source install on at least FreeBSD

Reported by: guest Owned by: duncan
Priority: normal Milestone: 0.10.2
Component: build system Version: 0.10.1
Keywords: Cc:


In the Makefile.am file, this (bash, I guess) idiom is used in the install-exec-hook rule:

mv somefile{.tmp,}

This is apparently supposed to be a shortcut for:

mv somefile.tmp somefile

And indeed, once I made that change, install succeeded correctly.

  • status changed from new to closed

Apologies. This should not be an issue anymore with the cabal version.
