Not sure how to separate out the building from the downloading in cabal new-build, so I can fix this by moving everything to prepare().

As for the 'invalid or corrupt package', I'll need a little more context there, as I can't reproduce.

I get 'invalid or corrupt package' during the installation.

matterhorn-bin is broken too, as commented

Needs internet connetion during build(). Please make sure that build() does not need internet, by dealing with all download in the source-array and in prepare().

I think you need to install ghc8.2, which is available in the AUR.

i cannot build this or the other matterhorn packages currently

error: target not found: ghc8.2 ==> ERROR: 'pacman' failed to install missing dependencies. :: Unable to build ghc8.2 - makepkg exited with code: 8

Hmm, I've run into things like this before with cabal and had to manually remove those packages that ghc-pkg check complains about. But I'm no cabal expert so there might be a better way that I'm unaware of.

In the worst case, you could try the matterhorn-bin package, which uses pre-built binaries so should work fine.

Hi there, thanks for the package!

I am unable to build, I get the following issue, any idea if there's anything I need to do?

Also I noticed cabal is using ~/.cache, I wonder if that's a cabal issue or if the package is missing some xdg magic.

I've been unable to build generally without the static versions of ghc and cabal, so I've made those explicit makedepends requirements.

This lacks community/haskell-tasty-quickcheck as a build dependency

I have following build failure with the latest version:

The program 'ghc' version >=6.11 is required but it could not be found
