How does the LAMW Manager work under the hood?
There is the third party tool Fpcupdeluxe which "It will ease the install of FPC and Lazarus.".

Does LAMW Manager do everything Fpcupdeluxe does plus do the Android side of things as well?

Is it possible to use Fpcupdeluxe, which has been tried and tested over more than two years, and then  run LAMW Manager?

Is that even a viable option?

I just need to clarify how LAMW manager is intended to be used.
Hello PeterEvans,
LAMW Manager performs all the installation and configuration of a complete and functional LAMW environment (including the Android APIs)
It is not necessary to use FPCupdeluxe! LAMW Manager performs all the service while you drink coffee! Just download LAMW Manager and run the ./lamw_manager
Good luck!

Hello DanielTimelord,

Let us say that I have used Fpcupdeluxe to install Lazarus etc.

Can I now  run LAMW Manager without it affecting Lazarus?

Fpcupdeluxe should make an isolated install of FPC and Lazarus in a directory of your preference. No system path are added or changed.

So I guess you can use (one or) both methods to install a programming environment to cross-compile towards Android. The choice is yours.

The development environment created by LAMW Manager does not affect previously installed Lazarus IDEs. Lazarus installed by FPCupdeluxe will not be affected.

Hello DanielTimelord,
That is very good news.
