Since the pandoc package in the repository is outdated, I would like to install it via
cabal update, and then
cabal install pandoc which fails with:
cabal: Couldn't read cabal file "pandoc/22.214.171.124/pandoc.cabal"
This might be relevant:
cabal --version cabal-install version 0.10.2 using version 126.96.36.199 of the Cabal library
my machine is running oneiric.
