Switching nightlies to GHC 8.10.2 and a workaround for Windows

By Alexey Zabelin, a month ago

The nightly builds are now using GHC 8.10.2 which is known to be broken on Windows. This bug should be fixed in GHC 8.10.3.

To help alleviate some of the problems related to this we wanted to mention a workaround you can use until GHC 8.10.3 comes out.

A direct workaround would be to change in X:\path\to\ghc-8.10.2\lib\settings:

("Merge objects command", " C:/GitLabRunner/builds/2WeHDSFP/0/ghc/ghc/inplace/mingw/bin/ld.exe")


("Merge objects command", "X:/path/to/ghc-8.10.2/mingw/bin/ld.exe")


Thanks to @mpilgrem for linking the workaround and suggesting we write this blog post!
