installing haskell on debian

This shit keeps breaking..

tom@zoo:~$ cabal install cabal-install
cabal: failed to parse output of 'ghc-pkg dump'

I need a sure shot way of building xmonad.

Maybe best to not install any debian packages except from haskell-stack?

# apt-get install haskell-stack
$ stack setup
$ stack install xmonad-contrib

But that is not enough to also have it do the recompile.


I don't understand how I've fixed it again this time, by uninstalling
xmonad debian package, then reinstalling again.
