Happy version downgrade

GHC - devs mailing list

Friends

I can’t build ghc-9.0 because of this:

checking for ghc-pkg matching /opt/ghc/bin/ghc... /opt/ghc/bin/ghc-pkg

checking for happy... /home/simonpj/.cabal/bin/happy

checking for version of happy... 1.20.0

configure: error: Happy version 1.19 is required to compile GHC.

What is the easiest way to fix?  I have happy 1.19.8, but it’s not called plain “happy”

bash$ happy-1.19.8 --version

Re: Happy version downgrade

Richard Eisenberg-5
If you say `./configure --help`, you'll get all the flags to ./configure. Toward the bottom, it says that the HAPPY environment variable can contain the path to the happy executable. So try

> HAPPY=happy-1.19.8 ./configure

and see where you get. You might need the full path to your installed happy-1.19.8. It might also be possible to pass --with-happy=/full/path/to/happy-19.8 as an argument.
