Description (last modified by bgamari)

Hadrian falls over essentially immediately when cross-compiling:

$ ./boot
$ ./configure --target=aarch64-linux-gnu
$ hadrian/ -j32

I believe this broke due to 665f8b0c778b3a5dac4696f81da0cea88b101ea9.

ghctags being gone, I don't have any problem getting the build to complete with this very simple patch:

  • hadrian/src/UserSettings.hs

    diff --git a/hadrian/src/UserSettings.hs b/hadrian/src/UserSettings.hs
    index c92dd11d44..b6fc30bd90 100644
    a b successColour = mkSuccessColour (Dull Green) 
    5959-- 'Stage1' compiler. Setting it to 'Stage3' will build the 'Stage3'
    6060-- compiler. Setting it to 'Stage0' will mean nothing gets built at all.
    6161finalStage :: Stage
    62 finalStage = Stage2
     62finalStage = Stage1

(this is a setting Matthew introduced somewhat recently, documented in hadrian's docs)

With this in place, a simple hadrian/ -j4 builds stage 1 to completion. However, trying to build this trivial Haskell program then fails:

main = putStrLn "hello"


$ _build/stage0/bin/aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu-ghc hello.hs -o hello
[1 of 1] Compiling Main             ( hello.hs, hello.o )

hello.hs:1:1: error:
    Bad interface file: /nix/store/8h3fdgpq66w8kxzxn49s706505a7ihnr-ghc-8.4.3/lib/ghc-8.4.3/base-
        mismatched interface file versions (wanted "80720190211", got "8043")
1 | main = putStrLn "hello"
  | ^

The cross-compiler ends up looking at the boot compiler's interface files instead of its own.
