Everything is open to the public. Why don't you try it ?

Me too, particularly since he thinks that .msi is cross-platform.

Well, I use Lazarus and it works. Strange...
But then yes, some parts work better, some less.

    also you get  so many errors

Here is the first problem, what errors? Lot's of people use trunk, and they don't run into "so many errors".

Yet, yes the errors may be there. But unless you tell us about every single error, exactly and in detail what happens, and what steps did you do before it happened => how can we help?
Or how can anyone fix them?

And maybe it's just a setting or something?


--- Quote ---2) You install laz for android and you must be charismatic to find out that you need old versions of NDK and SDK and god knows what else.
3) You install it from source and you leave it one day and you pray and you get 10000 errors.

is it so big deal to create seperate Installation msi for each OS?

Well, I don't personally use the android stuff. So I can't comment.

We offer installers for Win, Linux and Mac.

And if there were volunteers to help, maybe we could offer more. But currently we do not have the manpower for that.
It's not the building.
It's writing and maintaining the build scripts.
Maintaining the build environment.
Testing before and after the builds.

All that takes a lot of time.

I don't pray. It just works (and sometimes not, but that's trunk, it's unstable by definition).

Just to enlarge a little on Bart's comment, I routinely use Trunk and while the risk of a problem is always there, in practice, its very, very rare.

> and you leave it one day and you pray and you get 10000 errors.

If you get 10000 error on one day, you would almost certainly have got some on the previous day too. I expect your lack of experience is a factor here.

> cross compike and trunk version with fpcdeluxe and 50% of components are not working.

Your choose to use  fpcdeluxe, when it works, its great, when it does not, put in a bug report. Its difficult for a new comer to see what fpcdeluxe is doing and you sure sound new.

Open source suits some people, not others. Some people need to have all their problems solved for them by knowledgeable people, open source users want to become knowledgeable people themselves. Choose carefully....

I have looked for the posts of nick1965 (are only few, since start of Nov 2021). I looks he is searching/testing for complex things in Lazarus/fpc like cef4, indy, lamw, weblaz .. on Mac/Carbon, freebsd, maybe Win, ... with or without qt5.

With this, i can understand he get frustrated. But without the basics, he cannot attack such complex things. And then only one by one. 

my 2 cents
