Ticket #685 (new defect)
cabal install does not work when /tmp/ is mounted "noexec"
|Reported by:||guest||Owned by:|
Wanting to to build darcs 2.4.3, I downloaded the tarball ( http://wiki.darcs.net/Releases/2.4 ) and uncompressed it in /tmp/ to run cabal install. I got the following error :
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install: darcs-2.4.3 failed during the configure step. The exception was: ExitFailure? 127
See http://hpaste.org/fastcgi/hpaste.fcgi/view?id=25412#a25412 for a full verbose log, but i think there is nothing informative to it.
However, if I do "rm -fr dist" and try cabal install again, darcs build fine. Also, if I try in $HOME, cabal install works directly.
Here are the versions of the software I'm using:
cabal-install version 0.8.2 using version 22.214.171.124 of the Cabal library
Linux distribution: Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx).
I hope this will help you!
