Edit: I see a double post ...
Edit:Looks like Subversion is having some trouble connecting.Have you tried checked out a Subversion repository (any repository) in the terminal? Code: Bash [Select]svn checkout http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc/tags/release_3_0_2/ /home/sparky/testsvnrepo
Strange.Is there a proxy ?
Try https instead of http - just for the heck of it.From http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21033706/svn-e175002-unable-to-connect-to-a-repository-at-url#21325199
When you have Netrunner installed, and - if you want a rolling release (it's great) - enabled the 'Debian testing' repository in Synaptic - repositories - then I recommend that you install Lazarus / FPC from Debian instead of the 'official' ones from Lazarus.The Debian testing ones are at version 1.6.2 / 3.0.0 - and then you don't have to worry about accidentally upgrading Lazarus/FPC to older versions (as will happen with the debs from Lazarus' Sourceforge files section).Why? Because the Lazarus debs haven't been made to take Debian testing (or backports) into account - because that is essentially 'future'.Edit:Meta-packages fpc and lazarus should ensure that you receive updates - they currently point to 1.6.2 and 3.0.0.Then, after having a working, globally installed, Lazarus installation, then you can jump into building your own, personal Lazarus/FPC installation using fpcupdeluxe.Since you can have both installed at the same time - fpcupdeluxe is creating a self-contained installation - you should be able to at least have a global, working Lazarus, even if you have goofed the local fpcdeluxe installation.
