Installing Lazarus on Fedora 36
« on: October 14, 2022, 01:35:46 am »
Basic installation was fine. After installing a number of online packages, however, when I tried to rebuild the IDE, I got errors:
Hint: (11031) End of reading config file /home/wmeyer/.lazarus/idemake.cfg

Have not had any similar issues with Lazarus 2.2.4 on Windows, nor on other Linux.

You might need to back out of those "online packages", in reverse order until it builds again cleanly. That will indicate which of those packages is causing the problem.

Then, you could tell us what that package is. Its probably a path issue but absolutely no point in guessing until you have narrowed it down a bit.

If you cannot get it to run at all (so you can remove the extra packages) don't bother to reinstall, just remove the config directory and start again. Its probably /home/$USER/.lazarus unless you have set it somewhere else....

Lazarus 2, Linux (and reluctantly Win10, OSX)

probably the dev-packages for OpenGL missing
One System to rule them all, One Code to find them,
One IDE to bring them all, and to the Framework bind them,
in the Land of Redmond, where the Windows lie
Code is like a joke: If you have to explain it, it's bad
