Ticket #15 (new defect)
Be able to cabal install haskell-platform
|Reported by:||anonymous||Owned by:||dons|
Once this works:
$ cabal install Resolving dependencies... Configuring haskell-platform-2009.0.0... cabal: Unknown build tool cabal-install cabal: Error: some packages failed to install: haskell-platform-2009.0.0 failed during the configure step. The exception was: exit: ExitFailure 1
That is, cabal is able to track and install build-tools of unknown origin, we can put the haskell-platform.cabal file on Hackage, and it should be cabal-installable.
