Unfortunately, the packages that lambdabot depends on in hackage do not support ghc-6.10. Fortunately, the darcs repositories of most of these packages do support it.
To compile lambdabot on ghc >=6.10, follow the following steps
Get the stuff from darcs repositories:
darcs get http://code.haskell.org/HSP/haskell-src-exts darcs get http://www.glyc.dc.uba.ar/daniel/repos/ghc-mtl darcs get http://www.glyc.dc.uba.ar/daniel/repos/hint darcs get http://code.haskell.org/mubot darcs get http://code.haskell.org/lambdabotLets install haskell-src-exts from darcs (TODO: This may not actually be required, the one from hackage might be good enough):
cd haskell-src-exts cabal install cd ..
cd ghc-mtl cabal install cd ..
The mueval package depends on hint prior to the "New configuration api" patch, so lets unpull that patch (and its dependents), and install hint:
cd hint darcs unpull -p "New configuration api" cabal install cd ..
cd mubot/mueval cabal install cd ../..
Apply a patch to lambdabot and install it:
cd lambdabot wget http://www.haskell.org/sitewiki/images/e/ed/Lambdabot.patch -O -|patch -p1 cabal install cd ..
Edit your online.rc file at ~/.cabal/share/lambdabot-<version>/online.rc And run lambdabot via:
lambdabot -e "rc ~/.cabal/share/lambdabot-<version>/online.rc"
This may not be complete, please correct it if any more fixes are required, and as things are updated.
