Description

System

Mac OS X 10.4.8 for PPC (G4) with GHC 6.4.1 installed.

Description

On this system, neither the source or binary tarballs will install. When the user enters sudo make install the install prcess fails, saying that there and insufficient permissions to run install-sh. (Unfortunately, I did not preserve the original error message.)

Steps to Reproduce

Source tarball

To reproduce the error message:

  1. Download and extract the tarball.
  2. Run ./configure
  3. Run make
  4. Run sudo make install and enter the correct password.
  5. Observe that the install fails with permission errors.

Binary tarball

To reproduce the error message:

  1. Download and extract the tarball.
  2. Install according to instructions.
  3. Observe that the install fails with permission errors.

Workaround

Source tarball

Make install-sh executable by running chmod +x install-sh in the build directory.

Binary tarball

Not tested but will probably be the same as the source tarball.

To clarify, I was building GHC 6.6. GHC 6.4.1 was previously installed and was used to build GHC 6.6.
