Hi all,

I am trying to use Stack on Manjaro 21.0.1 Ornara. When I run stack build, I get an error message saying that libgmp.so.10 cannot be found:

appar > configure
appar > /home/noahsg/.stack/setup-exe-cache/x86_64-linux-tinfo6/Cabal-simple_mPHDZzAJ_3.2.1.0_ghc-8.10.4: error while loading shared libraries: libgmp.so.10: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This is quite bizarre, because I specifically installed GMP using Nix. And the location shows up when I run locate libgmp.so.10.

$ locate libgmp.so.10
/home/noahsg/.julia/artifacts/39b8e3dea0a701983a8ae84a2c567e1c4e555c7a/lib/libgmp.so.10
# Please ignore the fact that I have Julia installed; I love Haskell!
...
/nix/store/y0kbka0hid1h5a08a7p370c7i7zzn2dx-gmp-6.2.1/lib/libgmp.so.10
/nix/store/y0kbka0hid1h5a08a7p370c7i7zzn2dx-gmp-6.2.1/lib/libgmp.so.10.4.1
/usr/lib/libgmp.so.10
/usr/lib/libgmp.so.10.4.1
...

I have tried installing Stack using multiple package managers, including Nix (my first choice), Pacman, the generic install script, and Homebrew. I always seem to get this error when I run stack build.

I would appreciate any help you can provide.

Best wishes,
Noah G.

I have no experience with Manjaro, so I'm not sure exactly may be happening here. Perhaps setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the dir that contains the .so may help?

Thank you for the suggestion! I did try adding /usr/lib to LD_LIBRARY_PATH. I now get a different error:

 $ stack build
*** stack smashing detected ***: terminated
Aborted (core dumped)


Not sure what that means. Google says it has something to do with GCC.

Manjaro is a distribution based on Arch, but geared more towards beginners… if that helps.

Hey, never mind! I got it to work by using Nix, i.e. adding the following lines to my stack.yaml:

nix:
  enable: true
  packages: [pkgconfig zeromq zlib]


I will let you know if there are any other problems based on the dependencies.
