Update Lazarus and FPC - Ubuntu
« on: April 07, 2015, 11:26:48 am »
I use Lazarus and FPC for several months. I would like to update Lazarus and FPC source to new versions. How can I run automatic updates? Or: Is there some command to start the update?
OS UBUNTU.

Hoping that Ubuntu package maintainer will push the latest .deb to the official repository, a `# apt-get update` should do. Otherwise, get the new .deb(s) yourself from Downloads link on the left.

There is a good chance that Lazarus to be included in ubuntu-make. I have contacted the developer and he is willing but needs a contributor.
Someone who knows packaging should take the job. A lot of us will be eternal grateful!  ::)

If i had time i have  just done it but i do not and that was the reason posting here. It is not a trivial task because the packages exists in Lazarus download page put them are conflicting with the fpc from Ubuntu main repository and i can not solve that with my skils.
