+Hello, I hope this is the right place to ask for help.
+I am new to Haskell and Propellor; just want to give it a try. I have been using ansible but now looking for an alternative.
+I did the following steps:
+* install propellor on control machine with: `stack install propellor`
+* `propellor --init`
+* create a minimal config.hs file, which does nothing:
+ abc :: Host
+ abc = host "abc" $ props
+ & osDebian (Stable "stretch") X86_64
+when I run `propellor --spin abc`, it ended with the following message:
+ Installed propellor-5.3.4
+ Resolving dependencies...
+ Configuring config-0...
+ Preprocessing executable 'propellor-config' for config-0...
+ cabal: can't find source for config in .
+ sh: 1: ./propellor: not found
+ propellor: user error (ssh <long text>
+Can someone give me a hint how to process further?
