congrats to the new release

btw is this site http://www.getlazarus.org/ also yours? or are they fake?

GetLazarus is by no means fake, but a website by a Lazarus user. It is not the official website if that is what you mean.
It contains a lot of useful information and builds that are not yet in the official release.

But official releases are only from https://sourceforge.net/projects/lazarus/files/ .

Re: Lazarus 1.6 - Released (rebuild bug)
« Reply #17 on: February 19, 2016, 09:13:11 am »
I deleted the old ~/.lazarus directory and uninstalled Lazarus and FPC. I then installed Lazarus 1.6 with FPC 3.0. When I rebuilt the IDE to install some components, it completed the rebuild and restarted properly. However, when I closed it down and tried to restart it again it displayed the "Configure Lazarus IDE" dialog with the message "Warning: directory lcl not found". The component palette was empty apart from my custom components.

I found the solution in the "IDE options" dialog. In the "Files" section, the item "Lazarus directory" was empty. I entered "/usr/share/lazarus/1.6/", and after this Lazarus started up properly. So I suppose this is a small bug but easily fixed.

[Edit] Sorry, I failed to say that this is a 64 bit Debian Linux system.

How did you install it?

It's a Debian system. I used the .deb packages.

I remember similar error with clean installation earlier but didn't find any report about it.
However the initial Configure Lazarus IDE dialog should find Lazarus directory and at least offer it in a Combo list.
It makes this a minor bug but still a bug.
I will test in a virtual machine later ...

Guys, are you aware of http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=29176? It's a pretty serious bug in fpc 3.0.0 IMO. I don't know if it affects Lazarus, like whether Lazarus uses dateutils from the FPC RTL but I think someone should make sure that this issue doesn't actually affect Lazarus. Just sayin'.

ye i actually thought its a shady site, that website looks better than the official site too so it got me skeptical that it might be deceitful

but thanks for clearing that up

Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit in VMware VM on OSX.  I had 1.4.4 installed.  Downloaded the DEB files and installed the FPC no problem.  Installing Lazarus it says it can update via the Software Center but it get stuck about 1/8 of the progress bar and eventually just bails out. 
Rebooted the VM, Rebooted OSX.  Still the same.

Any thoughts?

UPDATE: 

 Tried it one more time and it finally asked me to allow changes and it installed...  Weird...

This is not fixed in the release, it makes using Lazarus painful if I have to edit the library paths by editing the underlying files....

Just installed and then tried a rebuild (to use my extra components)
which gives me this error:
Fatal: Kann sslsockets nicht finden verwendet von fphttpclient. Make sure all ppu files of a package are in its output directory. ppu im falschen Verzeichnis=D:\Dev\Lazarus\fpc\3.0.0\units\i386-win32\fcl-net\sslsockets.ppu..

RC2 worked without problems, so should I go back?

Problem was solved by making a CLEAN install of LNET 0.6.6 !
Same issue here:
fphttpclient.pp(285,6) Fatal: Cannot find sslsockets used by fphttpclient. Make sure all ppu files of a package are in its output directory. ppu in wrong directory=C:\lazarus\fpc\3.0.0\units\i386-win32\fcl-net\sslsockets.ppu..
