Ticket #19 (closed enhancement: fixed)
The platform directory should be relocatable
|Reported by:||refold||Owned by:||refold|
Description (last modified by refold) (diff)
The Windows installer currently writes the absolute path to the "extralibs" directory to package.conf. It should use a path relative to the GHC installation directory instead to make the Haskell Platform directory relocatable.
In general, it would be also nice if cabal-install didn't write absolute paths to package.conf.
