Common build problems
GCC 4 issues
It has been observed on Gentoo systems that GCC 4 may fail, complaining about there being no -nopie option. You can either use GCC 3, re-emerge ghc or just edit your /usr/bin/ghc script to remove the -nopie flag (the latter is by far the quickest and is perfectly safe).
Building from the Darcs tree
Distribution/Compat/FilePath.hs:2: error: Cabal/Distribution/Compat/FilePath.hs: No such file or directory make: *** [depend] Error 1 make: *** [stage1] Error 1
- Possible Solution
- Be sure you have run sh darcs-all get to get all necessary packages. Don't forget to run autoreconf again after you pull in new packages.
