Ticket #7728 (closed bug: worksforme)
ghc-pkg does not build
I am experiencing build errors with HEAD. Steps to reproduce:
git clone http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc.git ghc-working cd ghc-working/ ./sync-all get perl boot ./configure make
Build process terminates with an error:
utils/ghc-pkg/Main.hs:881:3: No instance for (Bin.Binary (InstalledPackageInfo_ String)) arising from a use of `writeBinaryFileAtomic' Possible fix: add an instance declaration for (Bin.Binary (InstalledPackageInfo_ String)) In the first argument of `catchIO', namely `writeBinaryFileAtomic filename (map convertPackageInfoOut (packages db))' ...
I'm using GHC 126.96.36.19930129 for bootstrapping. I'm stuck with development because of this :/
