« on: April 21, 2014, 10:35:38 pm »
Is it possible to run Lazarus Free Pascal in an old Mac laptop with OS 9.2?

Out of the box: no.

Rough status:

- older (2.2.x era)  FPC have run on classic Mac OS.
- Lazarus supports Carbon which is a cleaned up classic Mac OS api.

but the combination FPC+Lazarus/carbon in practice never really ran on classic Mac OS.

Actually, I have it running on 9.7

FPC 2.6.0 and a current Lazarus (with minor modifications to keep it running with 2.6.0)

What is Mac OS 9.7? AFAIK the last version of classic Mac OS was 9.2.2.

  GetRandomNumber := 4; // chosen by fair dice roll. Guaranteed to be random.
end;

I don't know.  I don't normally use Mac.
It says 9.7.0 when I do "uname -a"

You use Darwin 9.7.0. This is Mac OS X 10.5.7, not Mac OS 9.
