Because the most current releases of ghc (F-13 and abouve) contains the ghc-utf8-string stuff, ghc should obsolete this package in a right way, so users can make a proper update to the new release of ghc without the usage of --nodeps.
Thanks for the report: fixing in ghc-6.12.1-6.fc13.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This build is still pending strange buildsystem errors for i686...
which I am looking into.
Looks like the following build may succeed finally...
ghc-6.12.1-6.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
ghc-6.12.1-6.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update ghc'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/ghc-6.12.1-6.fc13
I am thinking perhaps it is better to bring back ghc-utf8-string
instead for F13 (it is already in devel for F14 since 6.12.2 does not
export utf8-string) and upstream says that the inclusion of
utf8-string in 6.12.1 was unintentional.
(Additionally ghc-6.12 should be able to handle having two versions
of the same library system installed much better than 6.10.)
ghc-utf8-string-0.3.6-3.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.
ghc-utf8-string-0.3.6-3.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
