I got one pretty much straight away. Have tried the installation instructions but it fails as per in this thread:
http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,25687.msg156330.html

Having just reformatted and reinstalled NOOBS 1.3.12 I wasn't keen on the proposed solution, but may not have a choice.

Arch Linux has just made their distro available for the Pi 2.
http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv7/broadcom/raspberry-pi-2

You can use fpcup to install the latest fpc / lazarus on your system.

Instructions: http://wiki.freepascal.org/Odroid

Works for me !

Yes I believe it !
I have obtained the same on Banana PI with FPC 2.7.1 and 3/4 weeks Lazarus 1.3.

Lazarus should be pushed to write useful GUI Linux applications.

For example having W$ explorer like interface on those ARM'ed machines would help have nice alternative to some open but disparate file navigators.

I've just posted a step-by-step guide on how to deploy the Trunk SVN revisions of FreePascal and Lazarus on the Raspberry Pi 2 using the Raspbian distribution: http://otapi.com/2015/02/10/raspberry-pi-2-freepascal-lazarus-and-delphi/

Thank you! I'll run through this tonight.
Also looking at the rest of the website. Nice articles!

Thank you very much :)
I haven't had much time in the last month to post more complete articles (though I have 6 in draft)... so it was nice to take time to put this one together (even if the effort involved in figuring it all out was infuriating, and I had to wipe my MicroSD card and start over about 9 times) :-\

Huh?

Lazarus should "be pushed"?

For Gods sake, Lazarus is open source, it is you and me, and you are welcome to contribute, there is no Lazarus entity as such "to push"!

Hi LaKraven

I had a few issues with the instructions but I think I worked most of it out.
Changes I did to your instructions were:

- After the initial "sudo bash" I ran "apt-get update"
(this was important for some references/links)

- When saving out of nano, I did a CTRL+O before the CTRL+X to explicitly write out to the file. Probably not necessary but it was just some piece of mind :)

- I copied and pasted the "[shared]..." details to the end of the smb.conf file

- I rebooted after the TightVNC and Samba installs to make sure the settings stuck

- For the line
"apt-get install libx11-dev libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev libcairo2-dev lpango-1.0 lpangox-1.0-dev xorg-dev"
I found that "lpangox-1.0-dev" did not work but "libpangox-1.0-dev" did

- I changed
"svn co http://svn.freepascal.org/FPC/svn/lazarus/trunk trunk"
to
"svn co http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk trunk"

- upon starting Lazarus for the first time I had to locate the FPC folder at "/usr/local/fpc/trunk"

Thanks for the ground work you put in! I hope my modifications/additions help.

Regards
