WINSOFT ComPort - Laz install Windoze and Rasp Pi...
« on: November 09, 2020, 03:06:45 pm »
Greetings all LAZ fans  :D
Happy to be here! ...  8)

WINSOFT ComPort is supposed to work with LAZ VERSION 2.0.10 ( WINSOFT is in SLOVAKIA !!! )

First, I try to install the package [TRIAL VERSION] "comportp.lpk" on WINDOZE LAZ 2.0.10 and no go...

"Compile package fpcunitide 0.1:Aborted" and "comportp.pas(11,3) Fatal: Cannot find ComSignal used by ComPortP. Check search path of package ComPortP, try a clean rebuild, check implementation sections.."

SECOND, ANYONE had success with this marvelous component? ...
(USED it in the past on DELPHI, and loved it! ... )

Here is the "release page" for LAZ 2.0.10 .... https://sourceforge.net/projects/lazarus/files/

However, NO "ARM" version? ... No joy for Raspberry Pi? ...

Anyone successful in LAZ VERSION 2.0.10 on a Raspberry Pi?
( Would LOVE to develop with LAZ and ComPort, and then run ComPort on a Raspberry Pi (zero thru four) ...  :)
.... CAN someone please point the way? ...... step by step procedure? ... Also, why not on earlier version of LAZ? ...)

Raspberry PI OS is just Debian for ARM.

Lazserial and the underlying Synaser are pure Objectpascal and calls to the OS. So no problem on Arm, just use it.

Oh, a personal note:  here are many happy Windows users , so 'windoze' is not appreciated nor funny. So please keep the OS wars away, Freepascal runs 'everywhere'.

About your question on Lazarus on Raspberry Pi:

- Lazarus older version is in Raspberry Pi OS repository
- search this forum for packages made for Lazarus 2.04 and script for that build

With one of these installed as bootstrap you can build Lazarus from source.

Second: You can install Lazarus e.g. with fpcupdeluxe on RasPi without any problems. RasPi3B+ is working too, RasPi4 is fast working, like on a PC.

First. Ask the Winsoft-Guys maybe in their forum. The missing ComPortP is not known in a normal Lazarus installation.

Thank you af0815 ....  :)

Where is the forum of "Winsoft-Guys"?
 ( Is there a forum of help for the WinSoft of winsoft.sk -> Slovak republic? ..... More people / help than "Eric Salaj" ? )

Where can one find more about "fpcupdeluxe"?

ALL ...
FYI: I have emailed Erik at WINSOFT regards the TRIAL component for COMPORT, (free download) which he shows as working on LAZ 2.0.10...
( I indicated I was running MANJARO XFCE "aarch 64" on a Rasp Pi 4 in my EMAIL ... )

HIS response was LAZ 2.0.10 on a 64 bit x86 CPU only, did NOT contain files for ARM CPU(?) ... ( HOWEVER, his "lib" folder contains TWO folders "x86_64-linux" and "aarch64-linux" ... THESE contain "LComPortP.compiled" ... ) HE added in his email, "Try to compile ComPort files from the source code" ... Hmm? ... Sounds like "source code" required, and this is not part of the "trial" ? ...

Anyone had joy in this direction? ...
