Ticket #419 (new defect)
cabal-install should handle packages that need a later Cabal version better
|Reported by:||jimburton||Owned by:|
I am using cabal-install 0.5.2. I have previously installed cgi (and other packages) locally. Now when I try to upgrade them all:
Resolving dependencies... cabal: Couldn't read cabal file "./cgi/3001.1.7.1/cgi.cabal"
I presumed that the starting point in that path was ~/.cabal/packages/hackage.haskell.org. In cgi/3001.1.7.1 there is just the tarball for the package but opening it and putting the .cabal file in the right place didn't help.
