Description

Hi, when I start GHCI -v (but also without -v) I most of the time get this:

GHCi, version 7.6.3: http://www.haskell.org/ghc/ :? for help Glasgow Haskell Compiler, Version 7.6.3, stage 2 booted by GHC version 7.4.1 Using binary package database: C:\Program Files\Haskell Platform\2013.2.0.0\lib\ package.conf.d\package.cache wired-in package ghc-prim mapped to ghc-prim-0.3.0.0-9d603ae4e062e1401099a3daa89 31d0f wired-in package integer-gmp mapped to integer-gmp-0.5.0.0-4093e6ff1e8ebdba04ec8 92df9ac108f wired-in package base mapped to base-4.6.0.1-f0c2cc6dcf0e12bf75312a2e7f354095 wired-in package rts mapped to builtin_rts wired-in package template-haskell mapped to template-haskell-2.8.0.0-42f1e6e5551 1ef4dff7e4249580faf8f wired-in package dph-seq not found. wired-in package dph-par not found.

However, once in a while it does start properly and activates Prelude for me.

I already checked that the required bin directories are specified correctly in my PATH env var. Any ideas why this happens? TIA, Arie

Change History

Somebody in the beginnes list wrote: The only difference I have with your output on my computer is a line after the "Using binary package database..." line:

Using binary package database: C:\Users\hgolden\AppData?\Roaming\ghc\i386-mingw32-7.6.3\package.conf.d\package.cache

That package cache contains hs-dotnet-0.4.0.

But I only have this path: "C:\Users\Arie\AppData?\Roaming\ghc" only containing ghci_history !!

Maybe this helps: I have now installed the older version 2012.4.0.0 and that seems to work fine so far. Maybe somebody can find a corrupting change in between the 2 releases?
