Ticket #165 (closed defect: invalid)
Unclear state of MinGW+MSYS in relation to Haskell Platform
|Reported by:||han_joosten||Owned by:||dons|
The haskell platform 2010 as well as 2011 comes with MinGW+MSYS, as far as I can tell. However, when I had freshly installed the HP 2011.2.0.0, the first thing I did is build my project with it. I was able to do so with version 2010.2.0.0, but not any more. I get the following message:
cabal: The package has a './configure' script. This requires a Unix compatibility toolchain such as MinGW+MSYS or Cygwin.
I am pretty sure I didn't have to install MinGW+MSYS myself in the previous version, and it didn't complain. Of course, I could install MinGW myself, but if that is required, what is the use of having it as a component of the platform?
