See a failed build:!/neothemachine/adp-multi/builds/2567508

Could not find module `Prelude'
Perhaps you haven't installed the profiling libraries for package `base'?

Perhaps you have to install them in an install: step or two?

When I use the Haskell Platform locally, it already comes with the profiling libraries of the system-level packages. So, in my opinion it should be enough to use an alternative install command:

  - cabal install --enable-tests --enable-library-profiling

But this won't work as the profiling libraries for the core modules are missing. And I highly doubt it's wise to try to install every core module afterwards in its profiling version like you suggest.

I'll reopen this for further investigation.

@michaelklishin do you have anything against installing core modules with profiling enabled? If I understand correctly, it would solve the problem

We use stock Haskell Platform 7.4, no modifications, official tarballs, 32 bit. Maybe profiling tools are 64 bit only. We have ~40 runtimes to look after and cannot investigate every single thing.
