Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2012-03-16 09:46:47 UTC
Hmm mysterious error.  Maybe some endian bug or something, dunno.

It builds fine on ARM anyway:
http://arm.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=10760

but still waiting for s390 f17 builds.

If you want I can disable ppc64 for now on f17.

There is a new release now from upstream so this might improve for f18 anyway.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2012-12-04 04:22:00 UTC
Looking again at the build error it seems like gtk2hs-buildtools (c2hs)
is generating broken type signatures for those functions
(Bool does not take a type variable).

Still no idea why, but it might be a gtk2hs-buildtools bug I suspect.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2013-12-21 15:01:12 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '18'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be 
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
