 #### Source, latest released version
 
 To compile the latest release from source, install the [Haskell
-Platform](http://www.haskell.org/platform/), run "cabal update", then run "cabal install
-notmuch-web".  This will install the latest release from
-[hackage](http://hackage.haskell.org/package/notmuch-web).  The binary will then appear at
-~/.cabal/bin/notmuch-web and the configuration files (see below) are in
-~/.cabal/share/notmuch-web-version
+Platform](http://www.haskell.org/platform/).  Next, install notmuch-web from the latest released
+version on [hackage](http://hackage.haskell.org/package/notmuch-web).  To do this, from the shell
+run
+
+~~~
+# cabal update
+# cabal install yesod-platform notmuch-web
+~~~
+
+You must mention both yesod-platform and notmuch-web on the same install line to make sure all
+dependencies are resolved correctly, otherwise you will get an error.
+
+The binary will appear at ~/.cabal/bin/notmuch-web and the configuration files (see below) are
+in ~/.cabal/share/notmuch-web-version
