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://code.haskell.org/mubot darcs get http://code.haskell.org/lambdabot
All these three repos fail for me with : "darcs failed: Not a repository: ..." --Gphilip 05:19, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
Lets 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 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.
