<< < (3/26) > >>

olly:
Seem to have come across the following issue, on 2.0.8.

From: /var/log/install.log

--- Code: ---./postinstall: /tmp/PKInstallSandbox.vFZ5uH/Scripts/org.freepascal.pkg.fpc-macos-x86-64-laz.QajxE2/postinstall: line 8: /usr/local/lib/fpc/Error: ppcx64 can't be executed, error message: Failed to execute "ppcx64", error code: 127/samplecfg: No such file or directory

I am also very pleased to see that cocoa has now become an official release. Many thanks and congratulations to the team.

Thats because you are looking at it using the Gnome supplied 'Software' or 'Software Install' tool. It classes anything that does not come from its own repository as proprietary.    I have seen numerous bug reports on the topic, they just seem to be ignored and, quietly closed.  I suggest you install gdebi and use that instead.

As an experiment, grab a deb from your /var/cache/apt/archive/*, to be really nasty, see if you can find gnome-software.....   It most certainly came from the approved repository and is open source.  Open it with Software-Install and you will see it claims it, itself, is proprietary !

Any file that is not in the official repository is reported as proprietary.  Even if it came from the repo.

I believe newer distros have stopped that particular tool  from claiming its a general software management tool.  Gdebi is your friend.

Thanks.  I forgot it. :)

Thanks for the explanation.  I'll try Gdebi. :)

Lazarus 2.0.8 on macOS:
I am happy to announce that my updates of the lazarus packages descriptions for macports and fink have been accepted.

Fink has a wide variety of packages for lazarus and freepascal, macports just fpc and lazarus-cocoa, both 64 bit.

Michael.
