Just thought I install the latest version (0.4.0) from hackage and test it.
Build and install went fine, but then it gets strange:
ben at sarun: .../haskell/cabal-install-0.4.0 > sudo runhaskell Setup.lhs
ben at sarun: .../haskell/cabal-install-0.4.0 > rehash
ben at sarun: .../haskell/cabal-install-0.4.0 > cabal --help
Usage: cabal [GLOBAL FLAGS]
or: cabal COMMAND [FLAGS]
fetch Downloads packages for later installation or study.
install Installs a list of packages.
update Updates list of known packages
clean Removes downloaded files
list List available packages on the server.
info Emit some info
ben at sarun: .../haskell/cabal-install-0.4.0 > cd ..
ben at sarun: .../software/haskell > cabal info
Config file /home/ben/.cabal/config not found.
Writing default configuration to /home/ben/.cabal/config.
cabal: dist/Conftest.c: openFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)
When later I tried the 'install' command, it reminds me to 'cabal update'
first, which I do (no response, so probably worked), however next 'cabal
install' gives the same funny answer about a missing dist/Conftest.c.
