Ticket #691 (closed defect: wontfix)
cabal-install broken after update of cabal-install
|Reported by:||guest||Owned by:|

After I upgraded to a newer cabal-install my cabal-install broke again: I get a Bus Error when doing "cabal update" or "cabal install something". The version that was bundled with the Haskell platform worked fine, but now it's broken again. I'm not sure what it was that went wrong or how to debug this.
The previous time I had Bus Errors I upgraded to the newest available Haskell Platform release and started from scratch. I would prefer not to do that again. However, I don't really know how to solve the Bus Error. Does anyone have a clue where to start? Or is there a way to undo my cabal-install upgrade?
Here is some info about my system (on OSX 10.6):
<pre> ghc -v Glasgow Haskell Compiler, Version 6.12.1, for Haskell 98, stage 2 booted by GHC version 6.10.4 </pre>
cabal-install version 0.8.0 using version 184.108.40.206 of the Cabal library </pre>
I'm happy to help debugging and willing to test out possible solutions.
