Raspberry Pi, Raspian Buster with Lazarus 2.0.0 and FPC 3.04

(1/3) > >>

FYI, after you install the brand new new operating system Raspian Buster on Pi3 or Pi4, you can install Lazarus 2.0.0 and FPC 3.0.4 simply by the following:

sudo apt-get install lazarus

This makes it much much simpler.  :D

Mmmmh, which isn't the latest release (2.0.2 as of 16-04-2019).

Raspbian Buster is afaik not complete (and Debian buster is released later this week) and not every package is ported yet. I can only test it after my RPI 4 deliveries.
It  *should* contain fpc 3.0.4 and Lazarus 2.0.0, because that is in stretch - backports.
What I DO know, is that you can copy your old installation and that should work, provided all dependencies are satisfied.
.You are just a bit too patient.

Don't even tell buster will be released this week: There is no announcement yet. Except for RaspBian (under the same restrictions...)

For now I'd recommend to keep Stretch, unless you already have a RPi 4, (needs Buster!),, which I ordered but do not have

For an intel-server I already switched to buster last week. I needed php7.3 and was caught in a dependency hell, so I upgraded everything. For now it's working fine (for mail and webserver, no gui stuff).

As far as I know buster was freezed some time ago so what's in 'testing' now should be final (but you never know).

Yes, Rik, It is frozen, pending release ... (Just like fpc 3.2.0..... :o :o :o)
In both cases there are still bug-fixes applied, but functionality is frozen indeed.
