Ticket #1288 (new defect)

Opened 16 months ago

cairo hidden dependency on gtk2hs-buildtools

Reported by: guest Owned by: duncan
Priority: blocker Milestone: 0.13.0
Component: build system Version: 0.12.4
Keywords: Cc: mhitza@…

Description

The easiest way to reproduce is run a cabal install cairo into a clean environment (with hsenv).

Cannot find gtk2hsC2hs
Please install `gtk2hs-buildtools` first and check that the install directory is in your PATH (e.g. HOME/.cabal/bin).
Failed to install cairo-0.12.4
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
cairo-0.12.4 failed during the configure step. The exception was:
ExitFailure 1

As a workaround I had to include this dependency in my packages dependency list, but that doesn't solve it because I can't force the order in which packages are compiled; so I'd be happy if someone could slap in the dependency in cairo and reupload the package :)
