I am (again) running into cabal install issues; which have been all too common for me.
In this case as an example, I tried this:
C:\Users\haskell>Cabal install buildwrapper
buildwrapper-0.6.0 depends on regex-tdfa-1.1.8 which failed to install.
regex-tdfa-1.1.8 failed during the building phase. The exception was:
So I tried this:
C:\Users\haskell>cabal install regex-tdfa
In order, the following would be installed:
regex-base-0.93.2 (reinstall) changes: array-0.3.0.2 -> 0.4.0.0, base-184.108.40.206
-> 220.127.116.11, bytestring-0.9.1.10 -> 0.9.2.1, containers-0.4.0.0 -> 0.4.2.1,
mtl-18.104.22.168 -> 2.1.2
regex-tdfa-1.1.8 (new package)
cabal: The following packages are likely to be broken by the reinstalls:
Use --force-reinstalls if you want to install anyway.
So what to do?
Last time I got into a situation like this I tried to start-over with cabal, remove all local cache and rebuild the library.
