On trying to install buildwrapper for use with EclipseFP, the build fails with the following output and error message:

I am using Kubuntu 11.10, Cabal version 0.82 and GHC version 7.0.3.

When opening a Haskell file in Eclipse with EclipseFP installed, right now I don't get any syntax highlighting, the outline is empty and running the program does not produce any output. As I suspect this is due to buildwrapper not being installed yet, I would be glad if you could help me find the error.

There's something really fishy, try to install buildwrapper manually in verbose mode (-v). Because it says it's building the library and registering ok, and then when building the executable it says it doesn't find the library it just registered...
Otherwise you're right, without BuildWrapper EclipseFP doesn't give you much...

@bytesource

Apparently the output from using cabal in verbose mode was too large, as I got the following error after pasting it here:

414 Request-URI Too Large

As there is also no way to attach a file, I'll send you the output by mail in a minute.

Everything looks ok:
Registering buildwrapper-0.5.2...

/usr/bin/ghc-pkg update - --package-conf=dist/package.conf.inplace
...
Building

executable buildwrapper.....-package-conf

dist/package.conf.inplace

So Cabal registers the library in the local package db, and reuses it to build the executable, but then fails...
Is the library properly installed in your normal package db (ghc-pkg list and check that buildwrapper-0.5.2 is listed)

Otherwise I have no idea, maybe it's a cabal issue. Check the file mentioned (dist/package.conf.inplace): does it mention buildwrapper-0.5.2 inside? (the file is text).
Sometimes on unixes issues are due to permissions being incorrect on some files/folders...

@bytesource

After running cabal, buildwrapper is located on the following path:

~/.cabal/packages/hackage.haskell.org/buildwrapper/0.5.2/buildwrapper-0.5.2.tar.gz

But buildwrapper does not appear in ~/.cabal/lib/.

Sorry, I have no idea where I can find package.conf.inplace. Do you know where this file is located?

@JPMoresmau
Owner

Mmhh yeah, when you install directly it just creates a temporary folder (see inside your log: Extracting /home/sovonex/.cabal/packages/hackage.haskell.org/buildwrapper/0.5.2/buildwrapper-0.5.2.tar.gz to /tmp/buildwrapper-0.5.212583)
So maybe you can try to take the tar.gz, extract it in a folder, and run cabal install inside that folder. There will be a dist folder created that will contain all the generated files, including package.conf.inplace.

Looks right to me... Are all the paths correct (ignore haddock). Do you get the same error when you build from a local folder? You don't have the same problem with other packages? I've never seen that issue before...

@bytesource

Moving the tar file to a local folder, ~/Desktop in this case, and running cabal install results in the same error message.

I've never seen this issue before, either, and now I wonder if there might be anything else I could do....

@JPMoresmau

Maybe run ghc-pkg check and ghc-pkg recache to make sure everything is ok in your package db

@bytesource

sudo ghc-pkg check returned the following list of problems:

There are problems in package hoogle-4.2.11:
  dependency "blaze-builder-0.3.1.0-afa4730059cca1c360ba70ae11ccdea3" doesn't exist

listed above, or because they depend on a broken package.
hoogle-4.2.11

network-conduit-0.4.0
blaze-builder-conduit-0.4.0.2

case-insensitive-0.4.0.1

Unfortunately I have no idea if these problems are related to buildwrapper.

@JPMoresmau

a priori no, buildwrapper does not use any of these packages. You may want to state your problem on stackoverflow or haskell-cafe. There is no error specific to buildwrapper, so maybe others would have an idea of how an executable cannot find the library defined in the same project... There was a message about test-suite, though, so maybe in your local folder try to remove the test-suite section from the cabal file (just keep the library and the executable) and see...

@bytesource

Removing the test folder before running cabal install did not work, unfortunately.

I am going to search Stackoverflow for this issue and ask a question if I cannot find any related problem.

Thank you very much for patience and help!

@JPMoresmau

I meant removing the section in the cabal file, yes? You don't see the warning about test-suite not being a known section type?

@bytesource

Removing the test-suite part from buildwrapper.cabal did not work either.

I deleted the following content:


test-suite buildwrapper-test

  hs-source-dirs:  test

@JPMoresmau

there's a bit more under that, but yes, that's it.

@bytesource

As was suggested in this answer on Stackoverflow, today I removed my ~/.cabal and ~/.ghc folders and then ran the following commands:

$ cabal update
$ cabal install cabal-install
$ cabal install buildwrapper

After an extremely long build time, I received the same error message as before:

[...]
Registering buildwrapper-0.5.2...
<command line>: cannot satisfy -package-id buildwrapper-0.5.2
    (use -v for more information)
cabal: Error: some packages failed to install:
buildwrapper-0.5.2 failed during the building phase. The exception was:
ExitFailure 1

During the build there were a lot of warnings (I guess) of the following form:

SpecConstr
    Function `$wa{v s1lLy} [lid]'
      has five call patterns, but the limit is 1
    Use -fspec-constr-count=n to set the bound
    Use -dppr-debug to see specialisations

but nothing that caused the build to stop prematurely.

ghc-pkg check also did not report any errors.
