test build of current ghc-7.8

Jens Petersen-2
Hi, I did a test build [1] of the current ghc-7.8 branch for Fedora 21 devel,
which I think should also install to Fedora 20.

I put the packages for x86_64, i386 and armv7hl into the yum repos under

I haven't tested this latest build yet but wanted to announce its availability.
Let me know if you hit any packaging problems with it.

Jens

ps I also upload the ghc-7.8.0.20140201 src tarball to
to build yourself.

pps Next time I will build it in copr.fedoraproject.org
which creates yum repos for one (like OBS).

I’m surprised that it worked for you. Did not you not hit
http://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/8725?

Greetings,
Joachim

Does that also affect 7.8?  I see the report is for a 7.9 snapshot.

yes, 7.9 and 7.8 are not so different yet. But I think I’ll resolve this
by making the Debian directory structure a bit more standard; much
easier than hacking the build system.

I’ll make sure it works and then close the bug.

Greetings,
Joachim

different issue: It seems that "hpc" is build dynamically, but installed
to the binpath (/usr/bin) instead of ghclibdir (/usr/lib/ghc/bin), so
the linking against the haskell library via rpath does not work. I had
to apply

Jens, how does that work in the Fedora package?
