first time installer here! had the usual '"/BootTidal.hs" does not exist' error when trying to start up in emacs for the first time.
so following the instructions here: Emacs Extension for the workaround to get 'BootTidal.hs' in the startup path, but when i do this:
[xxx@xxx ~]$ ghc-pkg describe $(ghc-pkg latest tidal) | grep data-dir | cut -f2 -d' '
[xxx@xxx ~]$ ls /home/xxx/.cabal/share/x86_64-linux-ghc-8.4.4/
really strange. it seems that in this case '/BootTidal.hs" in fact does not exist! what did i do wrong?
