This package doesn't install correctly on a clean installation of ArchLinux. The following message is displayed:

==> Starting build()...
Resolving dependencies...
cabal: Could not resolve dependencies:
[__0] trying: gitit- (user goal)
[__1] trying: xss-sanitize- (dependency of gitit)
[__2] trying: attoparsec- (dependency of xss-sanitize)
[__3] trying: scientific- (dependency of attoparsec)
[__4] trying: integer-logarithms-1.0.2 (dependency of scientific)
[__5] next goal: base (dependency of gitit)
[__5] rejecting: base- (conflict: integer-logarithms
=> base>=4.3 && <4.11)
After searching the rest of the dependency tree exhaustively, these were the
goals I've had most trouble fulfilling: gitit, attoparsec, base,
integer-logarithms, scientific, xss-sanitize
Note: when using a sandbox, all packages are required to have consistent
dependencies. Try reinstalling/unregistering the offending packages or
recreating the sandbox.

@Rufflewind: It worked! Thank you!

@cidig: Try the latest PKGBUILD and let me know if it fixes your problem. If your problem is not resolved, please paste all the errors from the build process.

I get this error when trying to install.

cabal: Error: some packages failed to install: ConfigFile-1.1.4-DJARwklgWmZ58CrBTu3gLb depends on ConfigFile-1.1.4 which failed to install. MissingH- failed during the building phase. The exception was: ExitFailure 1 gitit- depends on gitit- which failed to install.

@DkTyph: Thanks! I've pushed an update to fix this.

Resulting binary has the following error:

gitit: /home/dk/.cache/pacaur/gitit/src/gitit- openFile: does not exist (No such file or directory)

@solnce: Arch recently removed static libraries, which makes it very difficult to build statically linked executables using Cabal. I switched to Stack, which is immune to these problems. The rationale is explained in more detail here:

If the weight of stack as a dependency is a concern, you can try this instead:

Why has the stack dependency been introduced in the latest version? This will install 180 haskell related packages on my system.

@ftschindler: I've bumped the version. Let me know if it still doesn't work.
