Truly, twidge is very simple to install into debian (or derived) linux distribution, I found some problems on centos server but I solved them in a previous article.

Now it's time to install twidge on Mac OS X 10.6.8

To install Twidge on Mac OS X Snow Leopard the following steps shall be performed:

Install the Glasgow Haskell Compiler


Note: this step could take a long time, so be patient!

$  sudo port install ghc



--->  Computing dependencies for ghc

--->  Building ghc

--->  Staging ghc into destroot

--->  Installing ghc @6.10.4_4

--->  Activating ghc @6.10.4_4

--->  Cleaning ghc


Install Cabal

$  sudo port install hs-cabal



--->  Verifying checksum(s) for hs-cabal


--->  Extracting hs-cabal

--->  Configuring hs-cabal

--->  Building hs-cabal

--->  Staging hs-cabal into destroot

--->  Installing hs-cabal @0.8.0_0

--->  Activating hs-cabal @0.8.0_0

--->  Cleaning hs-cabal

Update Cabal packages

$ cd /opt/local/var/macports/software/hs-cabal/0.8.0_0/opt/local/bin/

$ ./cabal-0.8.0 update


Config file path source is default config file.

Config file /Users/luigidandrea/.cabal/config not found.

Writing default configuration to /Users/luigidandrea/.cabal/config
