Real world Haskell practices

"Install the most recent versions of cabal-install

Don't install things with --global

Make sure $HOME/.cabal/bin is at the front of your path

Don't be afraid to use rm -fr ~/.ghc

Use ghc-pkg for fine-grained package control

Use 'cabal unpack' to download upstream code so you can fix things yourself"

I would only add: use cabal-dev if possible.
