* Bug? Haskell GHC wont' work since ghc@8.6?

This one ought to be very simple to solve (or at least confirm).   Does
anyone use Haskell daily?

I am a very casual user of Haskell (GHC) and when I tried to compile
something just now, I noticed that it can't even compile the simplest
possible program..., unless I downgrade to ghc@8.4 or lower. Newer
versions, including ghc@8.6.5, didn't work, throwing the error message
below instead.

~/co/haskell-tiny-intro/exercise (master *)$ cat a.hs
main = putStrLn "a"

~/co/haskell-tiny-intro/exercise (master *)$ ghc a.hs
Linking a ...
.gcc-wrapped: error: unrecognized command line option '-no-pie'
`gcc' failed in phase `C Compiler'. (Exit code: 1)

Cheers,
Yasu

     Hi yasu, 

 
Compiling with ghc requires a c toolchain (like gcc-toolchain) installed to work. Can you try again after installing gcc-toolchain?    Ghc has not been perfect for me recently but I use it quite a lot.
 

 
Hope that helps,
 

 
John

Hi John,
Thank you, after installing gcc-toolchain, it worked!
Then this is indeed a bug that should be very simple to fix?   Just
require gcc-toolchain (or some of its required features) as a GHC's
dependency?
I am also curious, what kind of testing (if any?) does Guix perform for
packages??  Or is GHC already marked as broken?
(Apology for repeated question marks :-))
~/co/haskell-tiny-intro/exercise (master *)$ guix install gcc-
toolchain...~/co/haskell-tiny-intro/exercise (master *)$ ghc a.hs[1 of

tiny-intro/exercise (master *)$ ghc --versionThe Glorious Glasgow

I think this bug can be closed.  WDYT?


All the best,

Done.  You can close bugs yourself by sending
