Xmonad cannot find modules

I used to use the haskell-core repository, but I got frustrated by the breakages and I'm trying to move back to using the officially supported haskell packages in the community repo. However, I'm running into compilation errors on `xmonad --recompile`, after removing the haskell-core repo, similar to the errors described here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=195366

I've tried everything in the thread, including removing all haskell-related folders and completely reinstalling. Nothing has fixed it. Every reinstall leads me to the same errors.

Re: Xmonad cannot find modules

I'm having the same issue but with xmonad and the packages provided by pacman.

Errors log: https://nopaste.linux-dev.org/?1162171
xmonad.hs: https://nopaste.linux-dev.org/?1162172
Output of pacman -Ql xmonad-contrib: https://nopaste.linux-dev.org/?1162173

Things I've tried:
- ghc-pkg reache --global (and without global)
- deleting .ghc/ folder.
- Reinstalling xmonad and xmonad-contrib
- Compiling xmonad.hs with the -dynamix flag.

Note: I don't have cabal installed.

Tried

Use -v to see a list of the files searched for.

Re: Xmonad cannot find modules

Yes, this is the output: https://nopaste.linux-dev.org/?1162174

I can tell it can't find the proper files, but how do I fix it?

Re: Xmonad cannot find modules

I'm getting the same errors ever since upgrading to xmonad-0.13-9. If I downgrade back to xmonad-0.13-8, I can recompile again just fine.

Exactly, downgrading fixes the issue.

Re: Xmonad cannot find modules

And which files does that version test? ...

Re: Xmonad cannot find modules

Which looks quite different from the replaced patch https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/comm … 04025b8ea6

Re: Xmonad cannot find modules

The first link contains the changes made to the PKGBUILD, it adds the new patch. This is the relevant commit by felix: https://github.com/felixonmars/archlinu … dd4d838511.

Re: Xmonad cannot find modules

I'm getting these identical errors with regard to the shadowed dependencies.

What happens if you downgrade xmonad? Does it get fixed?

Re: Xmonad cannot find modules

How do I do that without downgrading a ton of other packages?  I tried using the last one from my package cache and it complained about some other haskell-x11* packages (but installed anyway).  It still failed to work, though.

I just downgraded xmonad without no complaints. It's still not an acceptable fix.
Mmh, I dunno.

UPDATE: try updating xmonad-contrib, that fixed it for me.

Re: Xmonad cannot find modules

I ended up uninstalling all-things-arch-haskell (xmonad, xmobar, ghc, etc.) and instead reinstalled them via stack. I wrote a step-by-step tutorial here for anyone interested.

Re: Xmonad cannot find modules

brianb - I ended up doing this as well, but I'd much rather use the arch maintained packages.  This is frustrating.

Apparently, the latest update to xmonad-contrib (0.13-7) fixes things. I'm sticking with stack for now, so I can't confirm.

Re: Xmonad cannot find modules

Yes, I can confirm the latest update to xmonad-contrib fixed things.  It was broken for well over a week, though.  Given that users may or may not routinely run xmonad --recompile, it makes the issue substantially worse.
