Ticket #192 (closed defect: fixed)

Opened 6 years ago

Last modified 5 years ago

cabal throws an error message if there is a space in the path to $HOME

Reported by: SeanMcMillan Owned by: MtnViewMark
Priority: critical Milestone: 2012.4.0.0
Component: OSX installer Keywords:


sean-mcmillans-macbook-pro-282:learn-haskell sean$ pwd /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/sean/Documents/Programming/learn-haskell sean-mcmillans-macbook-pro-282:learn-haskell sean$ cabal /usr/bin/cabal: line 15: /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/sean/.cabal/config.platform: No such file or directory /usr/bin/cabal: line 115: [: /Volumes/Macintosh: binary operator expected cabal: no command given (try --help) sean-mcmillans-macbook-pro-282:learn-haskell sean$

I'm not sure how much this blocks the functionality of cabal (I'm just starting out with Haskell.) My system grew a split root/home a while back, and the home partition ended up here.
