Linux / Re: [SOLVED] Get "make" to work to build Laz from cvs sources

@mai, maybe you are not clever enough for this task.
Now you are totally confusing 2 different toolsets: a 3rd party FpcUpDeluxe and the "official" Lazarus installation.
When you compile Lazarus using its own makefile, obviously FPC must be properly installed at that point. You can easily test it by typing "fpc" at console.

I must blame also the people who recommend FpcUpDeluxe for total newbies. It is an advanced geeky tool, most valuable for people who cross-compile. It is not suitable for "normal" installation because it keeps both FPC and Lazarus in an isolated sandbox.
Besides, compiling Lazarus from sources is easy. There is no need to recommend a geeky FpcUpDeluxe for it. You guys have totally confused "mai" by doing so.

Better sleep over night ... maybe things start to make sense in the morning.  :-*

FPC and Lazarus both use SVN, not CVS, for their revision control.

I removed a post from "mai". There is no need to hijack yet another thread for the useless ranting.

Installing SW to any Linux / Unix variant distro is easy when using the distro's servers. Installing a more recent version of SW is more demanding. It is not a Lazarus specific problem, it is true for any SW.
Debian and its derivatives are recommended by many. Yes, they are stable and good ... as long as you are happy with the outdated versions of programs found in their servers.
If not, then you may find 3rd party packages (like what we provide for Debian). If they work, good, but otherwise you must bypass their package system which breaks things very easily. I used to screw my Xubuntu system many times by installing a new version of something. Usually I was able to fix it but the struggle felt useless.

My personal recommendations for getting latest release of FPC / Lazarus:

1. Use a rolling distro. They have the latest versions of everything. I use Manjaro myself. It has an impressive selection of packages. FPC 3.0.4 and Lazarus 1.8 will be in their server a week or 2 after their release.
No problems so far with Manjaro.

2. For other distros, including Mageia, if no 3rd party package is available, you must bypass their package system.
A certainly functional way to install latest FPC is to use the install script provided by FPC project itself. A downside is that you cannot update it later by using the distro package system.
Then, Lazarus does not need installation really. Just get the sources, build and start it right there.
$ svn co https://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/branches/fixes_1_8  lazarus_1_8
$ cd lazarus_1_8
$ make
$ ./lazarus

Easy peacy. :)

Please stop bashing us.
You are not obliged to use Lazarus, if you find it to be so utterly useless.

About make and Lazarus from svn, for me it works out of the box, both on Windows and Linux (32 and 64 bit) and a Pi.
Just install fpc.
Get the Lazarus sources
cd $(Lazarus)
make all (or make bigide)

This has never failed me on many systems I have installed Lazarus.

B.t.w. It is NOT recommended to use fpc trunk with Lazarus trunk (which fpcup seems to favor).

It is OK to be frustrated if you don't get things to work, but your tone (not only here, but also on the wiki) is certainly not OK.

Lazarus / Re: Lazarus Release Candidate 5 of 1.8 (includes RC1 fpc 3.0.4)

Check that your Lazarus installation is using the correct version of FPC.
That is the one in your_laz_rc5_dir\fpc\3.0.4\....

Did you select "clean all" for the rebuild?

Did you make the install into an empty dir, or did you install over an old installation? (In case of the latter "clean all" may help, but not always)

Thanks Martin_fr. It worked.

Problem solved
Manual download CrossLibsLinuxARMRaspbian.zip and extract in cross
from https://github.com/newpascal/fpcupdeluxe/releases
and add LibraryPath when complie.
Just tested mORMot sample 31 WebSockets, cross compiled client and server works fine i QEMU emulation.
TestSQL3 failed on start - investigating.
Linux / Re: TMouseButton mbExtra1 - using 5 button mice in Linux - patch is sketchy
« Last post by bytebites on October 17, 2017, 10:22:10 pm »
I just checked the bug tracker for a open entry of "mbExtra1". I don't get eny result. So this problem isn't known (at least not reported).

bug report : https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=32562

what I meant to say was that 5-button-mice support is more important than various specialities, that have been worked on for 2 years, during which the patch existed.

Nobody has missed it,, since it is RIHFIOR RINF FIRF EDE property.
