  • Managing issues with the Haskell Stack projects under NixOS | 2021-08-28
    and need to change my stack to use a newer version of ghc that nixpkgs switched to like ghc8106. This is actually open as an issue in the stack project However it's more than just a stack issue, even if stack were to fix this part of the problem is haskell-language-server that runs haskell-lsp keeps updating its supported ghc versions. Fixing stack but being unable to use my development environment doesn't do me much good.
  • I can't find a solution to this problem involving stack install | 2021-08-27
    Following the hint to, I found and "Overriding GHC boot packages results in any other GHC boot packages depending on it being no longer available as a dependency".
  • Help getting started | 2021-08-14
    There was a proposal to introduce a brokering tool to handle this communication, but the maintainer of ghcup didn't like it very much, because this adds yet another program into the mix.

    Maybe you can try manually extracting it. There is a description of how to do that here: Instead of copying the ghc-8.6.5.installed installed file (which you probably won't have) you could probably just create a file with the contents: installed yourself.
  • Starting a project that depends on a module with a custom Prelude: mixins, cabal, and yesod-bin
    I don't know if this is related to your case, but stack has some problems with cabal mixins. You may try using alternative methods to add a custom prelude (via base-noprelude or NoImplicitPrelude) and see how it goes.
  • Haskell is vulnerable to dependency confusion | 2021-02-11
    There seems to be another variation of the attack that can be carried out against stack projects that have private git repos in their `extra-deps`:
  • How to run Haskell stack with Docker on Apple Silicon | 2021-02-09
    ARM predates Apple Silicon; check this commit out: for instance, arm and aarch64 have been commented out in the stack's installation script and the message mentions "fewer binaries". Must be in some changelog too, just couldn't find it quickly.
