I have problems installing ghc-mod on my linux machine. cabal worries about "happy" not being available in versione >= 1.17:

$ cabal install ghc-mod

haskell-src-exts-1.14.0 failed during the configure step. The exception was:

However, it even is installed in v. 1.19, as you can see here:

Any ideas?

cabal-install version 1.16.0.2
using version 1.16.0 of the Cabal library
