Ticket #218 (new defect)

Opened 5 years ago

Last modified 5 years ago

Makefile can't be run with -j4

Reported by: MtnViewMark Owned by: duncan
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Generic source tarball Keywords:


Because we don't encode the package dependencies into the makefile, running -j4 causes havoc - as packages get built in parallel, not in order.

At least we should document this in the README. Better would be to have the makefile somehow reject the -j4 Better still would be for it to actually work!

cabal info cabal-sort

I wouldn't want to make the build dependent on cabal-sort, but it could optionally be. Anyone want to make a patch?
