Title: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: stocki on January 31, 2015, 01:35:41 pm
Is there a fpcup update for 3.1.1?
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: Bart on January 31, 2015, 03:06:01 pm
AFAIK fpcup just updates to trunk (if you want), there is no hardcoded version for that.
So it should still work.
(Never tried it myself)

Hello to all,

In the past, I have worked together with the late Reinier.
I helped him to get fpcup working on ARM (hardfloat).

I have tried to update fpcup to work again on Windows and on ARM devices like the RPi2.

https://github.com/LongDirtyAnimAlf/Reiniero-fpcup (https://github.com/LongDirtyAnimAlf/Reiniero-fpcup)

Binaries are included in the lib directory !

Feedback welcome as usual.

Greetings, Alfred.

Hello to all,

Again some updates to keep fpcup in sync with all changes.

And some improvements in cross-compilers and cleanups.

Keep the BigChimp spirit high !!

Hi,

that's good news...
I try to install default Lazarus, but with FPC 3.0 instead of 2.6.4 - and I am failing epicly, struggling with the configuration. fpcup just seems to ignore it or does simply nothing.

Do you have a sample configuration?

Thx,
Dietmar

@Dietmar

Is your system Win7 / 64 bit ?

The below should work on all windows systems !

For fpc 3.0:
Code: [Select]
fpcup.exe --fpcURL="3.0" --lazURL="trunk"
For fpc latest:
Code: [Select]
fpcup.exe --fpcURL="trunk" --lazURL="trunk"
Same is valid for Lazarus !
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: dietmar on April 10, 2015, 12:26:25 am
Many thx!

Now it definitely seems that I have a broken SVN configuration (Win7 64Bit) since I tried a similar approach.
Ok, will have to dig further on, but I think I will get it.

Maybe a stupid question but how to get FPC trunk without Lazarus?
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on April 10, 2015, 08:13:18 am
There are no stupid questions .... only stupid answers !

Code: [Select]
fpcup.exe --fpcURL="trunk" --only="FPCcleanonly,FPCgetonly,FPCbuildonly"
To be more precise. I use this sequence very often:
Code: [Select]
fpcup.exe --fpcURL="trunk" --only="FPCcleanonly,FPCbuildonly" --keeplocalchangesafter I have patched the fpc source.
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update

with win32 SEH support,

Code: [Select]
fpcup --fpcurl=trunk --keeplocalchanges --fpcopt="-dtest_win32_seh"

fpc, fpc crosswin32-64 only
it sometimes useful.

Code: [Select]
fpcup --fpcurl=trunk --keeplocalchanges --fpcopt="-dtest_win32_seh --only=fpc,fpccrosswin32-64"

I used this one and it works well. Thanks!
I will try the other variations some other time.
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on April 13, 2015, 04:43:48 pm
Change in default settings of fpcup.

The setting "reapplylocalchanges" now defaults to true !!
This means that changes in the original source will be saved as a diff (as has always been the case).
And re-applied on the updated source after a SVN update of fpc / lazarus.

This allows for very easy propagation of source changes through normal fpc / lazarus updates.
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: avra on April 19, 2015, 10:52:32 am
I will try the other variations some other time.
You can try 2 attached variations (actually BAT files using configurations from INI):
TrunkLaz is Lazarus trunk + FPC stable version with fixes (currently 2.6.5)
TrunkAll is Lazarus trunk + FPC trunk
Both contain maximal number of packages I could make work.

Time is the limit now, but I do wonder what amount of work is required to add some favorite package to fpcup...
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on April 19, 2015, 01:45:19 pm
What are your (main) favorites ?
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: avra on April 22, 2015, 02:23:36 pm
What are your (main) favorites ?
This is what I have to reinstall with every fpcup combination I use:
Cindy, Indy, KControls, LuiPack, OpenWire, PascalSCADA, RichMemo, OmniXML, VirtualTreeView and Visual Synapse.
Believe it or not, they all exist in Typhon (some were added after my request) and besides embedded form designer and easy cross platform that's the only reason why that is my main Lazarus incarnation. Without looking into code first, I am not aware how hard would be to add these modules to fpcup. Ideally there would be a fpcup subdirectory where fpcup would look for recipes with modules, and we would be able to create such recipes as simple ASCII, JSON, XML or other similar files. Recipes would contain module source (lib/package directory, or git/svn url), with some additional instructions needed for fpcup, and could be easily shared with other interested users. If I catch time (huh)  :(, I would like to make some fpcup modules. Since this is not an ideal world, development is the only way.

Speaking of Typhon, there are many packages which are screaming for use with fpcup. I have looked through all of them, and here are the lists of what can already be found online (SVN/GIT), and what can be found only in Typhon download file:

Available online (SVN or GIT):
Abbrevia, Asphyre Sphinx, CmdLine, DataPort, Eye Candy Controls, fpCEF3, GeckoPort, Indy, jujiboutils, KControls, LazSolutions, LazWebSolutions, LockBox2, LuiPack, OnGuard, OmniXML, Orpheus, Pappe, PascalSCADA, PowerPDF, RichMemo, RichView, SpkToolbar, SplashAbout, VirtualTreeView, VisualPlanIt, Web Service Toolkit, ueControls, ZenGL, zmSQL

Typhon only (\typhon\components in typhon_src.7z, examples in CodeOcean.7z):
Astronomy, Barcodes, Box2D, Cindy, ColorLib, DWscript, ExDesign, ExSystem, ExText, FzControls, GaiaGIS, GeoGIS, Graphics32, JVCL, OpenWire, Orca, Shapes, VisualSynapse
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on April 22, 2015, 03:57:22 pm
Wow ... you know what to ask for ... ! That is a BIG list !!!

Few things to remember:
1) fpcup is primarily made for easy install of FPC and Lazarus.
2) fpcup will not implement functionality that is already available is some way or another.

Having said this, I will explain my preferences (but by no means ment as limitations).

Fpcup is command line. A single executable with 2 setup files. Package selection has to be done according to the currrent method. This means packages have to be available for direct use by FPC and/or Lazarus. No changes to source. So install from SVN or GIT. With an optional patch (directory) for the source if needed. These patches could eventually be used by the package developers (or even be made available by them e.g. in case of changes to FPC / Lazarus trunk).

By no means fpcup will be able to deliver something like CodeTyphon, with its very extensive package list. As (original developer) late BigChimp stated: fpcup is something like an extensive macro for installing FPC and Lazarus.

So lets get started !

I will have a go on your first list of packages. Start with Cindy. And further.
This is how I will proceed. But please feel free to add / change / cooperate. Input is always welcome and appreciated.

But please be hesitant on forking fpcup.
It would be good (better) to have only a single version, with a lot of build-in features, that will fulfill (nearly) all our needs.
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update

Wow ... you know what to ask for ... ! That is a BIG list !!!
I am really sorry if you understood this as a request. I guess my English has failed in delivering my thoughts this time. I would be more then happy if you get interested in even just 1 package from the list. I apologize for the confusion, and I must say that you were very kind considering how my words were understood. My goal is first small list, and I have gone through checking of Typhon components mainly because I think that there are people not awared of Typhon exclusive package ports from Delphi (hats off to CT for this enormous effort) and maybe getting interested in making fpcup modules, and because many people would like the freedom to choose IDE based on liking and to be able to easily use fpcup Lazarus even for project originally started with Typhon. I simply don't like to be limited in such a way.

I don't see why not. If people start contributing list could be extended a lot. That's why I was thinking aloud mentioning idea about parameterized module files instead of module development. Much more people could contribute that way. Well, no one can forbid dreaming, right?

Well, I didn't plan to involve at this point, but since you were so kind and surprised me a lot (in a positive sense) I promise to take a look. Maybe it will be all clear, but if not, it would help if you try to document process of creating Cindy fpcup module. Maybe people will start contributing their favorite packages once they see it's not that hard. That would benefit all of us...

Anyway, thanks for showing such a good will!

Btw. Is it possible now to create a module that would install package not from SVN/GIT but from existing folder, or to unpack 7z file and install from one of it's folders?

Hi!

My simple question, I use "default" parameter (your suggest it about half hour ago), but I need few svn file, becaue these are bug-free versions. This is possible?
What I mean:
pascal sources download...
then... download and override files from "custom_freepascal.txt".
then compile... :)

contains of the custom_freepascal.txt for me, for example:

svn.freepascal.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/trunk/packages/fcl-db/src/sqlite/

or

http://svn.freepascal.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/trunk/packages/fcl-db/src/sqlite/sqlite3ds.pas
http://svn.freepascal.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/trunk/packages/fcl-db/src/sqlite/customsqliteds.pas

see: http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,28203.msg175909.html#msg175909 (http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,28203.msg175909.html#msg175909)

Thanks!

Post by: DonAlfredo on May 04, 2015, 07:30:13 pm
I changed the settings of the scripts to default !

What you ask for is not possible with fpcup.
Fpcup downloads from a single fpc svn source.
The choices are limited to what is available online:
http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc (http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpc)

However, you can do:
Code: [Select]
fpcup --fpcURL="trunk" --lazURL="default"
Not exactly what you want, but a good workaround.

Another trick you could use: install default, and overwrite directory "packages/fcl-db/src/sqlite/" with trunk.
Then, run fpcup again. Changes will be stored (in diff) and reapplied after svn update.

Post by: totya on May 04, 2015, 07:34:36 pm

Okay, now is impossible, but I think this is a very simple and important quest :)
After sources files download, this app download files from the custom file (line by line), then compile...

Thanks for the info!
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on May 04, 2015, 07:45:56 pm
Then I did not explain good enought !

Fpcup downloads fpc as a local svn repository.
Inside the fpc directory, there is a (hidden) .svn directory.
All files are stored within this directory (some sort of database).
Local changes can be tracked with the appropriate tools (e.g. TortoiseSVN)

Every time fpcup is run, it runs a svn client to update the local fpc sources.
The whole fpc directory is a single local svn repository.
A mirror of an online fpc repository. This is how svn works.
Fpcup does not download fpc as a flat file or directory structure or zip.

So, in this case: computer (svn) says no !

However, I will think of a feature to define extra downloads from a separate source by the use of a module. The same way as other packages are defined inside fpcup.ini.

I will keep you informed.
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: avra on May 04, 2015, 10:55:39 pm
pascal sources download...
then... download and override files from "custom_freepascal.txt".
then compile...
You need to study FPCUP.INI file and see how existing modules are parameterized. Then you can make your own module where just single command is executed. That single command can be a BAT file using external tools for files download and then execute FPC recompilation.
Another way would be to study FPCUP sources and implement needed functionality in code. SvnURL, GitURL and HgURL downloads are already implemented to be used in modules. FileURL and FileListURL downloads are not yet implemented in modules, but everything needed is already there so it shouldn't be too hard to extend modules with such functionality.
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on May 05, 2015, 09:19:11 am
There are already two extra (module) options:
*) ArchiveURL for downloading and unpacking remote zipped-files
*) ArchivePATH for unpacking local zipped-files

Problem: these commands can not (yet) be used for patching source files.

However, for the described problem, the method is quite simple.

Install vanilla fpc / laz by issuing
Code: [Select]
fpcup --fpcURL="default" --lazURL="default"
Copy over the changed files from
http://svn.freepascal.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/trunk/packages/fcl-db/src/sqlite/sqlite3ds.pas (http://svn.freepascal.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/trunk/packages/fcl-db/src/sqlite/sqlite3ds.pas)
http://svn.freepascal.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/trunk/packages/fcl-db/src/sqlite/customsqliteds.pas
 (http://svn.freepascal.org/cgi-bin/viewvc.cgi/trunk/packages/fcl-db/src/sqlite/customsqliteds.pas)

Then, run fpcup again
Code: [Select]
fpcup --fpcURL="default" --keeplocalchanges="false" --reapplylocalchanges="true" --only="fpc,fpccrosswin32-64"
And all is done !!
You can run the above command 100 times a day.
The local changes will propagate by diff and patch !!
The fpc diff will be stored inside the fpc directory.

Post by: totya on May 05, 2015, 06:51:46 pm
Hi!

Thanks for your job, but doesn't work this method.

I overwrite old source files from svn.

After rebuild sample project, I get component error again, and I see, the recompiled files times doesn't changed... ex.: sqlite3ds.o sqlite3ds.ppu. This is mean, the new source files doesn't compiled really.

See attached log file.

fpcup.exe is latest from svn (rev 24).

Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on May 05, 2015, 07:22:43 pm
Strange. No fpcup errors in your log. The logfile shows clearly:
Quote
[2015-05-05 18:27:56.206 Info] FPC: WARNING: found modified files.
C:\development\fpc\packages\fcl-db\src\sqlite\customsqliteds.pas
C:\development\fpc\packages\fcl-db\src\sqlite\sqlite3ds.pas
Diff with last revision stored in C:\development\fpc\REV30552.diff
FPC: reverting before updating.
FPC: reapplying local changes.

So, fpcup (svn) detects changed files. And reapplies the changes. All ok so far.
The two files have been changed back to trunk.
You should be able to check this.

Remaining problem: why are the original .o and .ppu still floating around.

I think it is, because fpcup detects no changes in fpc revision.
And therefor thinks no new compilation is needed.

This would mean that I have to add a new --force parameter, to force fpc to recompile !
I will have a look at it !!
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update

Post by: avra on May 06, 2015, 12:38:04 am
Testing and reports are very welcome !
I will continue our PM conversation here since files can not be attached to PM, and all this would probably interest some other fpcup users...

Everything works again with latest fpcup. Tested in Win7 32bit VM. Lazpaint module does not hang the whole process any more and is properly built. SVN client download url is correct now and SvnURL modules work again even on a machine without any SVN client preinstalled. GitURL and HgURL work when proper clients are preinstalled (tested with TortoiseGit and TortoiseHg). GitURL will not work if during GIT for Windows installation default "Use Git from Git Bash only" is selected. Selecting "Use Git from the Windows Command Prompt" worked for me. This is info that does not exist in any fpcup documentation I could read so it should probably end up in a wiki page.

Mormot is default module in fpcup. I think it should not be default. Just let the user use it if he wants. That way if it goes wrong, fpcup with default settings will still be able to finish it's job.

Bgra now compiles without manually commenting the problematic line (trunk seams to be corrected), but anchordocking seams to have a problem in laz trunk (I think, since it works with laz 1.4). It compiles well but has a serious layout save/restore bug which completely kills usability. It is not a fpcup problem but it is worth mentioning for current users.

Again, attached BAT file TrunkAll downloads trunk fpc and trunk laz, while TrunkLaz BAT file downloads stable fpc (2.6.fixes) and trunk laz (with all modules). There is nothing windows specific in BAT files so they should be cross compatible. Of course, attached FPCUP.INI and MYSETTINGS.INI should be put into FPCUP.EXE directory. I have modified them and corrected errors where needed, so using them now allows downloading correctly all modules (anchordocking, bgracontrols, brookframework, codelibrarian, dcpcrypt, default, doceditor, ecc, fblib, fpcdocs, fpcup, fpspreadsheet, glscene, greyhound, helpfpc, helplazarus, indy, kzdesktop, lazarus_ccr, lazbuild, lazdatadesktop, lazpackager, lazpaint, lazres, leptonica, lhelp, ljgridutils, lnet, mormot, mupdf, nxpascal, OCRivist, pascalsane, patchwrangler, rx, simplegraph, suggestedpackages, synapsetrunk, tesseract, tiopf, USERIDE, vampyre, vtv and zeos). I have not yet tested installerlazwin module. I have extended lazarus_ccr module so now it downloads complete repo and installs these additional components: cmdbox, lazcolorpalette, fpspreadsheet, fpspreadsheet_visual, fpspreadsheetexport_visual, gradcontrols, jujiboutils, JvCoreLaz, JvNavigationPaneLaz, JvXPBarLaz, kcontrolslaz, lazbarcodes, longtimerpackage, tponguard, playwavepackage, poweredby, pack_powerpdf, richmemopackage, lazrichview, scrolltext, spktoolbarpackage, tdi, lazparadox, tvplanit, virtualtreeview_package, and zvdatetimectrls. Other packages are listed but commented for various reasons. More info about it can be read inside FPCUP.INI. I have corrected GitURL paths for these modules: brook, tiopf, lazpackager, ljgridutils, greyhound, lazmupdf, fblib and mormot. It works now for me, so check if it works for you. I have also corrected modules 18, 19, 22, 39, 40 and 41. Please take a look and apply if you agree with such changes. With tiopf we need to execute "git checkout tiopf2" from tiopf source dir. You will see my unsuccessful attempt to automate this in FPCUP.INI, so please take a look and see if you have a better idea which would work. So far it needs to be done manually.

My further steps would be to try to add new modules I proposed earlier (again time is the limit), and after that I would try to add CodeTyphon exclusive modules to fpcup. It would not be needed to download the whole 600MB CT archive since I have already found while monitoring CT updater with WireShark that just interesting files can be downloaded from these locations:
http://www.pilotlogic.com/codetyphon/current/src/typhon_src.7z (35MB with all CT components)
http://www.pilotlogic.com/codetyphon/current/src/CodeOcean.7z (optional 125MB with all CT examples)
Then I would have to find a way to unpack them (7zip is still not supported in fpcup), programmatically change pl_* required package references in code as I already do by hand, and install them. Everything automated. I would also make a special module called max that would include all other modules, and user should be able to easily install or update Lazarus with zillion components, libraries and frameworks with just a single fpcup command.

As a general idea, it would be good if we could parameterize module to be installable only on specific operating system and bitness. Something like AllowedOS=win32,lin32,lin64 or similar in FPCUP.INI definition of that module. Does something like that already exist?

THANK YOU !  :)

Main thing: certainly, the Wiki page has to be updated !!

I have to reply quick ... I am on holiday .. will come back to you in a few days.

1 question: the whole of lazarus ccr is now downloaded (if enabled), but many packages are not used. Would it perhaps be better to make every of  these packages a single module. To limit download bandwidth. Or is it a feature to have them all. I am open for every suggestion.
(a possibility: combine ini sections :
[lazarus-ccr]
kcontrols=1
...
[TrunkAll]
includesection=lazarus-ccr
ecc=1
...
)

Thanks again for your work.

DonAlfredo, do you know about this mail thread ?
  http://lists.freepascal.org/pipermail/fpc-devel/2015-February/035378.html

I think you should inform the FPC developers if you are planning to maintain fpcup also in future. They also have a similar plan but it may take time because they already have enough packages and other duties. For that reason I don't think it would be maintained very well then. They might be happy if somebody else does it.

If you want, you could propose yourself as a maintainer and the GitHub location documented as the "official" place.

The worst case scenario is that FPC developers start to maintain fpcup without knowing about your doings. I don't believe anybody would benefit from that situation given the limited resources.

Main thing: certainly, the Wiki page has to be updated !!
This is a wiki reminder: Add howto for adding a new module to existing fpcup installation since it's not obvious. If there is no better way use once "--only=newmodulename" before new recompilation.

I have to reply quick ... I am on holiday .. will come back to you in a few days.
Please forget completely fpcup until you return and enjoy your holiday ;-)

1 question: the whole of lazarus ccr is now downloaded (if enabled), but many packages are not used. Would it perhaps be better to make every of  these packages a single module. To limit download bandwidth. Or is it a feature to have them all. I am open for every suggestion.
If there would be only lazarus-ccr then I could maybe vote to break it into single modules, however plan would be to have many, many new modules in the future. If we bring a "rule" to break each into sub modules, then we would not have hundreds but thousands of them. I would prefer something like having "FPCUPUSER.INI" that if exists, would have priority in search for modules. That way for example we could have default lazarus-ccr module options in "FPCUP.INI", but if the user has made "FPCUPUSER.INI" and it contains lazarus-ccr module FPCUP should take that one instead. Also, it would virtually eliminate a need to touch original "FPCUP.INI".

Quote
(a possibility: combine ini sections :
[lazarus-ccr]
kcontrols=1
...
[TrunkAll]
includesection=lazarus-ccr
ecc=1
...
That's a nice type saving and readability improvement feature. Since both TrunkAll and TrunkLaz have the same list of modules, I could use this feature to avoid double typing.

Maintaining fpcup is, at this moment, just a pleasure and a desire to not forget (the work of) BigChimp.
So, if fpc-core wants to take over / continue : perfectly fine.

Maybe you misunderstood my meaning. I don't want to stop you from maintaining it, I only want you to communicate your future plans about it.
See the mail thread I linked. There my interpretation was that you want to maintain it but Michael Thompson's interpretation was that you don't want to do it ... And it is still not clear from your last comment.

Please tell your plans preferably in fpc-devel mailing list. You can become the "official" maintainer if you want. Lack of communication can lead to duplicated effort when people don't know about each others' work, and is unfortunate for the users as well.

Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: avra on May 14, 2015, 11:15:35 am
Huh, I had many problems with TrunkAll until I found the guilty ones. First, in suggestedpackages I had to comment editormacroscript, datetimectrls and industrial packages, since they were producing errors. Then I had to comment everything related to bgra, then zeos, cm630commons, lazmer and pascalscada since they were doing the same. And each time (even with last successful fpcup session) I got 2 x "ppc386.exe" has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution to problem" messages. I have seen some other new modules that you have included in latest fpcup but I had no time for testing them. I have also tried "includesection" but it does not seam to work yet. Please let me know if/when you implement it.
I was also surprised that I had to comment modules helpfpc, helplazarus, lazbuild and USERIDE. Otherwise fpcup failed. Am I doing something wrong or something was changed lately?

For pascalscada to work, I will try your idea with one slight modification, and see if that works:
Code: [Select]
...
name=pascalscada
Requires=fpcup
Patch=$(fpcdir)/../extras/fpcup/componentpatches/$(name).diff
...

Having so much trouble, I had an irritating experience of fpcup sessions failing about 20-30 times, and each time because of one different module. Then seing if something can be done or commenting it and repeating the process. Very, very unfriendly, so I gave up a few times and had to spread this testing over several days. Instead of adding new modules as I wanted to, I was spending time on troubleshooting. Therefore I propose a switch that would allow continuing even with non-critical failures, and writing to errors.log a list of all errors. That way we could have much more chances for successful session, and comment all problematic modules in a single try (if we want to bother at all). I would also make this switch default one and ease everyone's experience with fpcup. What do you think? Can you please take a look? I hope that something like that would not be too hard and time consuming to implement.

I have attached workable TrunkAll with changes from above.
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on May 14, 2015, 02:57:24 pm
Thanks for your feedback !
I think we would have to change our mindset about fpcup.

Bare fpcup will install fpc (and Lazarus) on all systems without much effort.
So it fulfills its primary goal.

The problem starts with the additional packages and modules:
versions (like trunk / stable)
os-systems (Win, OSX, ..)
cpu (arm, i386, ...)

Every external package has its limitations.

E.g. the problems you encounter with TrunkAll did not happen on my system. In fact, TrunkAll gave me a CodeTyphon like install with very many working packages on both Windows and OSX. Working 100%.

So, we have do the tedious job to work through the list of modules on all systems !
A lot of work.

My method at this moment:
perform a bare (no extra modules) install with fpcup : fpcup
install a needed module with fpcup : fpcup --only="indy"
install another needed module with fpcup : fpcup --only="bgracontrols"
install another needed module with fpcup : fpcup --only="ecc"
and so on .....
....
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: avra on May 14, 2015, 05:21:44 pm
Here is one example:

fpcup.exe --verbose
finishes with success and creates shortcuts

fpcup.exe --only=pascalscada --verbose
error, log attached

This was all called from empty dir with just latest fpcup.exe.

Then I have tried this change in fpcup.ini:
Code: [Select]
...
name=pascalscada
Requires=fpcup
Patch=$(fpcdir)/../extras/fpcup/componentpatches/$(name).diff
...
but pascalscada could still not be installed.

Then I have tried to install lpk files manually, but couldn't since pscada_constants file was missing. So I think it was a broken repo and not fpcup...

update:
fpcup.exe --only=zeos --verbose
was just checked and it fails too, probably also repo problem...

This package-patch-feature of fpcup is still to be implemented.
The lines are there to remember me to do the implementation.

The patches themselves should be fully functional.
However, naturally, they are prone to being outdated, while the package maintainers are changing their sources without me knowing it.

But I hope that these patches will be picked up and, when reviewed and ok, incorporated into the original source.

After some effort I have made ct2laz, a utility which could be used with fpcup to download, convert and install tons of CodeTyphon component packages to make "fat" Lazarus. It can also be used to convert between CodeTyphon and Lazarus projects.
http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,28897.0.html
This was the first step, and right now fpcup and ct2laz can be used manually. When I catch time again I will try to integrate ct2laz more into fpcup, so the whole process can be automated.

Ah! It's great to see that somebody is moving this project forward! DonAlfredo you are the best!!  :D
I was helping Reinier with Mac OS a year ago and it was frustrating to see the project down.

Please could you make some cleanup to your repository? Just to make it somewhat better  ;)

You've squashed all original commits into one "Initial commit". There's no way to track old changes in it.
Here is bitbucket history converted to github repo: https://github.com/Arvur/fpcup
I've done that after Reinier has gone but had no time for it after that.

And please do not store binaries in repo as they are not replaced with updates. All binary revisions are stored in history.
One does not need that extra 100Mb when going to clone repo with sources.
You can use github Tags/Releases feature to publish builds. See example here: https://github.com/Arvur/fpcup/releases

Sorry to bother you but these changes are really needed!
Thanks a lot once more for your work!!  :)

P.S. There is no need to recreate your repo. If you are not familiar with git - write me please and I'll help you to replace initial commit with Reiniero's history and clean out binaries from modern commits.

I just came back from a rather long and very nice vacation. With a very severe jetlag.
So, I need some time to get back into business.

There are some issues with fpcup that need to be resolved.
I will start working on some of them next week.

You are very welcome to add the fpcup history into the current repo.
I do not know how, so your help is essential.

I will study your example on how to publish builds.
I am not that familiar with git and github !

DonAlfredo, I've created new repo fpcup_new and transferred ownership to you.

All binaries are moved to release section. Old history is attached.
You were using unix line endings and Reinier used dos-style. I had to remove .gitattributes and convert your files to merge it all together.

P.S. I see message "Repository transfer to LongDirtyAnimAlf requested" so I suppose you have to confirm it  ;)

New version of FPCUP.

Raspberry Pi support is restored.
Some file paths have been changed to enable (enjoy) out-of-the-box experience of both fpcup and Laz/fpc.

FreeSparta support: fpcup.exe --installdir="c:\freesparta" --lazURL="freesparta" --include=freesparta

New modules : see inside fpcup.ini, the module-list.

Feedback welcome as usual.

Please remember:
Fpcup will not overwrite existing fpcup.ini and setting.ini
So, delete these files, if you want to enjoy the new modules like FreeSparta

From the log, it shows a SVN error.

To debug this, please run SVN from hand or from a GUI and try to download the fpc sources.
E.g.:
Code: [Select]

Post by: shobits1 on September 11, 2015, 11:19:56 pm
Ok now it is officially the svn binary that fpcup downloading is the root of the problem, it lack the command --version which cause fpcup to exit with error.

I have downloaded the svn command line from https://www.visualsvn.com/files/Apache-Subversion-1.9.1.zip (https://www.visualsvn.com/files/Apache-Subversion-1.9.1.zip) and extracted it on "C:\Prg\Lazarus\TrunkAll\fpcbootstrap\svn\svn-win32-1.8.13\" overwriting all files, then executed fpcup with no error; even the first fpcup (from the afternon) worked fine (at least it started downloading fpc source).

so, I think you should change from where you download svn binary for windows.
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: wp on September 11, 2015, 11:56:41 pm
Another option: If you have tortoisesvn in your system then you can use their svn by adding a line like

svnexe="c:\program files\TortoiseSVN\bin\svn.exe"

to the ini file. This has the advantage that windows explorer identifies modified files by meas of a red overlay icon.

Now, plain archives are downloaded and installed.

Also made some minor package changes.
E.g Indy is still downloaded (in extras), but not installed anymore.

It would be welcome if Indy is not used at all in fpcup or anywhere else. There are several major issues regarding indy based traffic is blocking or/and hampering anything else. It seems it wants to own your connection to the Internet (hint: it uses exceptions where there aren't any). And it is badly written code anyway. (sigh, again, but demonstrably true).

The "fpcupgui" project "mainform" unit should contain the "installeruniversal" unit in the uses section so we do not get an error about "SETTTINGSFILENAME" and a bunch of other missing values.

Also, the project options should contain the "synaser" unit directory so the compiler does not miss those files and gives errors (project options -> other unit files -> "synaser").

But if you definitely want to change the default behavior of fpcup, you can do this:

It also seems to remove all my local settings, every time I run fpcup, I have to setup my Lazarus again. Most notably is window position, anchor-docking, installed package. And sometimes I got "Configure Lazarus IDE" dialog with missing compiler/fpc path.

Edit:
I don't know if it's AnchorDocking, EditorToolbar bugs. But my setup often lose. Docking randomly miss placed, editor toolbar is empty. Not even reset to default, but it seems the config was broken.

If needed, builds a fpc 3.0.0 intermediate compiler for trunk.

@coliv_aja
Please run fpc(laz)up with the switch --getfullrepo
It will make an full svn repo of fpc (and Lazarus)
And only update if needed when running again.
So, would save your settings.

******************************************************************
 You are now installing a bleeding edge version of [FPC/Lazarus].
 Please be forewarned that things might not function,
 as you would expect from a stable release.
 Installing a stable release,
 will give you a stable development environment,
 and is the preferred way of using [FPC/Lazarus].

 PS: You can build Lazarus trunk with normal FPC stable !! <-----
     Just execute fpclazup --lazURL="trunk"                <-----

Please check log for details. Possible troubleshooting steps:
- run again with --verbose and check for make, lazbuild errors etc.
- if compiling Lazarus, make sure your lhelp is closed.
- try removing all intermediate files by running fpcup with the --clean option
  and/or manually deleting all *.ppu/*.a/*.o followed by svn up
- if that does not work: use the --uninstall option to remove all files
  including your FPC and Lazarus directories
- remove the files in the bootstrap directory. fpcup will redownload if required.

Ok, bad luck then.
In reality people don't usually need trunk versions of both FPC and Lazarus, but install them just for fun or from old habit.
If you are interested in Lazarus trunk features, you can use FPC 3.0.  If you are interested in FPC trunk, you can edit your programs with Lazarus 1.6.

Hello,
Tip to download Lazarus!
It is the standard low FPCEUP Lazarus stable version.
Create a menu on the main screen of fpcup.
Example.
[1] Lazarus default / stable
[2] Lazarus Trunk

You don't really get that one goes before the other and that it is impossible for the two to be developed using parallel trunks.
I mean: FPC trunk develops what eventually lazarus can use, but is not guaranteed to be stable.
Lazarus development needs a stable release of FPC to be able to develop in any meaningful way.
FPC trunk developments (language changes, even breaking languages changes) would frustrate the development of Lazarus and will definitely lead to work having done over and over again.
This is not the first time you showed you have no clue about compiler development, although sometimes you make good contributions that make you think.

But if you are not even capable of getting it to work yourself? Why bother? Using trunk in any development environment brings risks, not just in the freepascal/lazarus world. It always works like I described even at Delphi's labs internally or even with any self hosting IDE for a given compiler suite.

Stop acting childish and look stupid.

That said: experimentally you CAN get it to work... sometimes...

I cannot compile even the current branch. I think there is a bug in the fpclazup.

That's your problem. You should be able to build laz trunk and fpc trunk by hand.
fpclazup may very well lack behind on trunk versions for both Lazarus and FPC.
Although a recent fpclazup builds the proper 3.0.0 bootstrap compiler and should be able to do the job.

Still: I build by hand and I have a Laz trunk and fpc trunk from today.....
Time to get your hands dirty ;)

You don't need fpcup to get Lazarus trunk. It has been my message already earlier. Changes were made for fpcup to avoid "accidentally" getting trunk versions of both FPC and Lazarus. Some new users considered it a normal thing to do, while it is only suitable for experienced users.

You can get Lazarus trunk with a single "svn checkout" command, or the same thing using TortoiseSVN, and then running "make".

Back from holidays ... back to coding !

From the log, it seems that the intermediate (3.0.0) compiler does not build and/or is not available.
(are the 3.0.0 sources avialable on your system [check C:\Development\fpc300bootstrap] ?)

Also from the logs: win32.
So, what Windows version ?

I will try to reproduce your error.

Back from holidays ... back to coding !

From the log, it seems that the intermediate (3.0.0) compiler does not build and/or is not available.
(are the 3.0.0 sources avialable on your system [check C:\Development\fpc300bootstrap] ?)

Also from the logs: win32.
So, what Windows version ?

I will try to reproduce your error.

Windows 8.1 x64
Sometimes it work sometimes not!

I am sorry, but I cannot reproduce the error you encounter with fpclazup.
I have just run your sequence, three times in a row, on an identical system as yours, without any problems.

Concerning this : "fpclazup: info: Found bootstrap compiler version 2.6.4"

Fpc(laz)up only uses the official bootstrap compilers.
The compiler is downloaded, and found by fpc(laz)up.
A version check is performed.
A decision is made on how to proceed:
* trunk or armhf : build (intermediate) 3.0.0 compiler and use it to build trunk.
* anything else : use available bootstrap.

More detailed log. I think it's the antivirus. I've disabled but still no luck.
Previous versions worked fine. fpcup.exe but this new thing is totally weird.

Hey DonAlfredo - Over on the other thread about the Raspberry Pi you asked if I had made ppca64 executable.  I hadn't and that appears to be the solution!  It's still running so I'll report back about the results.  I still wonder why I got the git error though.

Thanks!

Ok...it looks like the Lazarus installation completed successfully on my Odroid C2, but I don't see any way to run it.  There is nothing in the menu.  According to the documentation on GitHub (https://github.com/LongDirtyAnimAlf/Reiniero-fpcup) there should be a script in my home folder but I don't see anything.  Any ideas?

Thanks,

EDIT:  It looks like the install actually failed.  At the bottom of fpcup.log it says this:

Post by: DonAlfredo on March 23, 2016, 06:51:57 am
The good new is: you have a working aarch64 FPC !

Compilation of Lazarus consumes a huge amount of RAM memory.
I think you need to add some swap space.
It's a recurring problem.

The Raspberry (1,2,3) also needs swap space to compile Lazarus.

On my system (Arch Linux), I have only LXDE running and than it just runs (make all) without swap.
Building USERIDE fails due to memory-constraints.

Adding swap is the easiest solution !

Lazarus is up and running!  Thanks for your help and patience DonAlfredo...I appreciate it!

But now I have another problem...I can't install a package.  When I open the package file, the only button on the package dialog that works is the 'More' button.  When I click any of the others, such as 'Use', the 'More' menu opens.

Any ideas what's going on there?

Congratulations !
Now you have entered the twilight zone ... of bleeding edge FPC and Lazarus !!

Both, but I think especially Lazarus, need work to get things running for 100% on aarch64.
So, you have earned yourself a developer-position.
(you found out already that the toolbars are not working as they should)

First goal: get the debugger working.

Run a most simple project with the debugger.
On my system (Arch Linux 64bit), this does not work yet.
I hope it will on yours.

Reports are welcome in the bug-tracker.

I do have a couple of things to report but have never submitted to a bug tracker.  Can you point me in the right direction?

The debugger is working for me.  I can stop at breakpoints and inspect variables.

Just make an account in de bugtracker in menu on the left.

I reported a couple of issues in the bug tracker, and this is the nasty-gram I received:

"Please don't open more reports about ARM 64bit. Things are badly broken there and it is obvious for anybody who tests it.
Things are different if you can provide patches to fix the broken stuff."

So I guess reports are NOT welcome in the bug tracker...

Well, I filed a bug about aarch64 debugger. And now it seems its my systems failure, because on your C2 it works.
And that is good to know. As it is also good to know that onboth our systems, more things go wrong in de same way.

But this will fill up the bugtracker.

So, lets start another thread. About aarch64. And share our experiences. And debug. And patch. And help fpc and Lazarus. Its rewarding ! Your remarks and help will be appreciated.

Bug report:
On WinXP SP3 latest FPCLAZUP was just waiting for ever when trying to install sparta. After verbose analysis it looks like quotes are missing so my existing svn client was never executed because of a blank in directory name.

I have noticed the same. Instead of quote, though, I would suggest to use the GetShortPathName winapi and a similarly named function that does return the canonical path for other platforms.. That is maybe easier from a cross-platform point of view.

You can file a bug report here: https://github.com/LongDirtyAnimAlf/Reiniero-fpcup

I just ran

with
Code: [Select]

Could it be specific for XP SP3 ?

I don't know. But short names or quotes should be safe to use on all windows versions that Lazarus supports.

You can file a bug report here: https://github.com/LongDirtyAnimAlf/Reiniero-fpcup
That was my first thought but I gave up because I didn't feel like going through github registration process at 1:30 AM. Maybe some other time...

If TProcess/runcommand or executeprocess are properly used, there should be no quotes needed. You pass the program as string.

The quote thing is a problem with the commandline property which has been deprecated for years now. (since 2.6.0 or even earlier)

- if compiling Lazarus, make sure your lhelp is closed.
- try removing all intermediate files by running fpcup with the --clean option
  and/or manually deleting all *.ppu/*.a/*.o followed by svn up
- if that does not work: use the --uninstall option to remove all files

- remove the files in the bootstrap directory. fpcup will redownload if required.

Strange error. Fpcup is looking for crosscompilers where it shouldn't.

My advice in these situations: run a most simple fpclazup command from a clean directory:
(a clean directory is a directory with only a single file to start with: fpclazup.exe)

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. fpclazup.exe --installdir="M:\Lazarus\Binaries\MyFpcupTest"

It will also give you the base for cross-compiling.

So, start simple and try to debug.

I got it work by building for the same CPU and operating system, by excluding the cputarget, ostarget and lclplatform options.

See if doing away with the 2.6.2 (really old) starting compiler works...
I can also reproduce this, but intermittantly and not consistently over platforms.
It may be that some platform code is an issue because of 2.6.2 instead of 2.6.4.
AFAIK 2.6.4. is now current on most distributions outside of the FPC community itself, where 3.0 is of course current.

To support your efforts I can put starting compilers on freepascal.thaddy.com on a regular basis. ATM there are little if no downloads there, but my servers are high speed and capable of high volume. Maybe we should discuss such an option. I think it would still be in the spirit of BigChimp. (my servers are up for decades, some since 2000)

About FRET_UNKNOWN_REVISION.

For me, after running fpclazup_linux_x64 it does say:
Code: [Select]
fpclazup: info: Checking out/updating FPC sources...
fpclazup: info: INFO: directory /home/rik/development/fpc is not an SVN repository (or a repository with the wrong remote URL).

and

fpclazup: info: Checking out/updating Lazarus sources:

fpclazup: info: Running SVN checkout or update.
fpclazup: info: Lazarus is now at: revision FRET_UNKNOWN_REVISION
fpclazup: info: Updating Lazarus version info.
fpclazup: info: Result true

But afterwards:
Code: [Select]
rik@rik-VirtualBox ~/development $ svn info fpc
svn: E155007: '/home/rik/development/fpc' is not a working copy
rik@rik-VirtualBox ~/development $ svn info lazarus
svn: E155007: '/home/rik/development/lazarus' is not a working copy
rik@rik-VirtualBox ~/development $ cd lazarus
rik@rik-VirtualBox ~/development/lazarus $ svn info
svn: E155007: '/home/rik/development/lazarus' is not a working copy
rik@rik-VirtualBox ~/development/lazarus $

So somehow the svn doesn't create a valid working copy for svn (which would result in the FRET_UNKNOWN_REVISION).

This is on Linux Mint 18 Sarah Cinnamon 64-bit with fpclazup_linux_x64:
Lazarus 1.6 rFRET_UNKNOWN_REVISION FPC 3.0.0 x86_64-linux-gtk 2
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: rvk on July 13, 2016, 11:11:56 am
Ok, I had not given the --getfullrepo option. When using that option the SVN Revision is correct (for me).

If --getfullrepo is not given (or set in settings) there is an "export" done. Otherwise a "checkout" is done.
But svnclient.pas checks with "svn info localdir" what revision is downloaded. That results in an error when "export" is used so you get a FRET_UNKNOWN_REVISION.

Wouldn't it be better for fpclazup to do a "svn info $repourl" so the online version is taken? That would work with checkout as well as export. (or if "checkout" is used you could do "svn info localdir" but for "export" check against the $reprourl)

And if you want to distinguish between "checkout" and "export" use "SVN Revision: 52677M (export)" instead of "SVN Revision: 52677M".

@Thaddy
I think BigChimp wanted everything from official sources. That's also the reason why there are no bootstrap compilers hosted on fpcup GitHub.
However, we could move forward without loosing his spirit, by offering home made bootstrappers as an extra option.
E.g. --usespecialbootstrap.
These can easily be hosted on GitHub.
But I would value your feedback on this.

@rvk
Thanks !
I will use your feedback to dig deeper !
Will report back.

Valid... but isn't there any chance to just get proper bootstrap compilers for all platforms in
ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/pub/fpc/dist/3.0.0/bootstrap

There are a lot in
ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/pub/fpc/dist/2.6.4/bootstrap
and even more in
ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/pub/fpc/dist/2.6.2/bootstrap

What's the reason they were not made for 3.0.0 ?

(is there a difference between for example ppc386.exe in bootstrap and the on in the official complete FPC binary package?)

Ok, so even the bootstrap 2.6.2 from ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/pub/fpc/dist/2.6.2/bootstrap/ (which fpcup uses) isn't officially "supported"  ;)

I'll guess I'll keep downloading the 42.8MB package of FPC 3.0.0 to use the compiler (2.8MB) from there  :)

How do you install Lazarus 1.6 with fixes and FPC 3.0.0 with fixes?

(B.T.W. FPCUrl=3.0.2 doesn't exist yet. 3.0.2rc1 does. Luckily "fixes" from branche contains the same fixes)

I tried
fpclazup64.exe --fpcURL=fixes --lazURL=fixes

but got errors.
Is this again due to the wrong bootstrap compiler?
(If so... isn't that going to be a problem with 1.6.2 later on?)

Where do we get fpclazup.exe?
(I sent you the link in a PM.)

Wiki page: http://wiki.freepascal.org/fpcup
Github page: https://github.com/LongDirtyAnimAlf/Reiniero-fpcup
Bin-directory for fpclazup64.exe: https://github.com/LongDirtyAnimAlf/Reiniero-fpcup/tree/master/bin/x86_64-win64
(assuming you have 64bit OS and want 64bit Lazarus)

fpclazup64.exe --fpcURL=trunk --lazURL=trunk --getfullrepo


As said in an earlier post I wanted to only do the fixes for Laz1.6 and FPC but that doesn't seem to work. The trunk install works correctly.
fpclazup64.exe --fpcURL=fixes --lazURL=fixes (this doesn't work)

Ok, maybe a really daft question of me but where can I find the official FPC 3.0.0 64bit release ?

(the one with only 64bit and a clean ppcx64.exe)

I can find a 3.0.0 package for Linux (which I use to extract FPC3.0.0 compiler). But I can't find it for Windows 64bit. It is included in Lazarus 1.6 64bit but that's a much larger install(-file).

Edit:
Ok, I guess I need to use the cross-compiler then (as was the same with FPC 2.6.4 for x86_64).
http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,29452.msg186131.html#msg186131
(and so should fpclazup because it needs fpc3.0.0 for the fixes/fixes target. Pfffff, it doesn't get easier with that :()

Both sparta_dockedformeditor and UTF-8 work well here. What is wrong with UTF-8 in your system?

Yes, renaming lazarus.old.exe is fine but you should also copy a working Lazarus executable and give it a distinctive name.
Then you can always start it when things go wrong.

Where did you get the rcpopupunit ? It's not in the normal rx package.

Anyway... did that file include LazUtf8 in the uses? Because the functions are there.

Bug related to Sven change in FPC trunk r34087. r34087 totally breaks casting an object to an interface, for example after r34087 the following code won't work anymore:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. constructor TDesignFormData.Create(AForm: TCustomForm);
  2. begin

I also don't find rcpopupunit in Lazarus sources.
This is probably about the disabled wrapper functions. See:
 http://wiki.freepascal.org/Lazarus_1.8.0_release_notes#Wrappers_for_string_functions_are_disabled
They are already deprecated in Lazarus 1.6.
Just use the righ units and you are good.

Fixed in Lazarus trunk r52691.

That was long standing Lazarus bug in JITForms (vmtIntfTable slot was equal 0). It was correct before FPC r34087 because was used FPC_EMPTYINTF instead of nil...

Works now for fpclaz_stable 32bit Windows.

Just curious... are you using a bootstrap FPC 3.0.0 now to compile FPC 3.0.0 stable in 32bit (Windows) ?

Shouldn't FPC always be compiled by an earlier version or is compiling with the same version allowed/supported ?

Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on October 01, 2016, 07:17:03 am
@rvk

The original fpcup used the most recent bootstrap compiler available online. And because of this, OVERRIDEVERSIONCHECK was often needed, due to wrong bootstrap versions.

Fpc(laz)up now uses the FPC makefile itself to determine the correct bootstrap compiler. E.g. the makefile of 3.0.0 contains:
Quote
REQUIREDVERSION=2.6.4
# Accept 3.0.0, without requiring to using OVERRIDEVERSIONCHECK=1
# 3.0.0 should become REQUIREDVERSION after 3.0.0 final release
# and 2.6.4 should be moved to REQUIREDVERSION2
REQUIREDVERSION2=3.0.0
This means both 2.6.4 and 3.0.0 are  considered ok.
If this info is not available, fpc(laz)up  follows the normal  rules as you already mentioned.

@josh:
I will investigate.
But if you want something with Lazarus (TrunkLaz), you need fpclazup !

Hi!

I'd like this:

Lazarus x64 (+x86 crosscompile) stable + fixes
with
fpc stable + fixes

What is the right command line of this?
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on October 23, 2016, 02:59:17 pm
Hmmm ... you need to supply more info.

System. Win ? Linux ? OSX ?

Combi's ?
Laz-stable+FPC-stable.
Laz-fixes+FPC-fixes.

Or also ?
Laz-stable+FPC-fixes.
Laz-fixes+FPC-stable.

Hi!

OS is Windows.

I think all users wanted this, and only this - for stable environment.

Lazarus x64 stable + fixes (+ x86 crosscompile)
and
fpc stable (that version, which shipped it with Lazarus) + fixes (+ x86 crosscompile)
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update

Still not clear ... but however.
It is ill-adviced to use a Lazarus 64bit on Windows.
Standard practise is to use 32bit Lazarus and cross-compile / debug your app towards 64bit.

But again, here you go:

Put your fpclazup.exe somewhere on your system (lets propose in c:\fpclazup). Get a command prompt inside this dir. Run:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. fpclazup.exe --installdir="c:\FPCLAZStable" --fpcURL="stable" --lazURL="stable" --verbose --getfullrepo

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. fpclazup.exe --installdir="c:\FPCLAZFixes" --fpcURL="fixes" --lazURL="fixes" --verbose --getfullrepo

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. fpclazup.exe --installdir="c:\FPCLAZTrunk" --fpcURL="trunk" --lazURL="trunk" --verbose --getfullrepo

However, I prefer using batchfiles as available in the bin-dir of fpcup:

Yeah, but I want to help for you, because x86 version of your app never worked correctly, I always got crash when I tried it, and I wrote it many times, for example here: http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,27211.msg222830.html#msg222830 (http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,27211.msg222830.html#msg222830)

Okay, I need all the three lines what you wrote step by step?
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on October 23, 2016, 04:37:15 pm
The first line will give you FPC stable with Lazarus stable and a link on your desktop to start this combi.
The second line will give you FPC fixes with Lazarus fixes and a link on your desktop to start this combi.
The third line will give you FPC trunk with Lazarus trunk and a link on your desktop to start this combi.

Occasionally, I see the error you have reported. I think it has to do with Windows not liking long running processes that block.
Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce in such a way that I can debug.
But it does no harm.

When the error messages window appear, update process paused, it isn't good game pressing always the OK button to continue.

I will try the second line now...

I got many error messages:

Seems that the svn website of FPC is very hard to reach at the moment.
So, the downloads will not succeed.

Just retry ...
Or check manually:

Hi!

Few restart is failed too... but when I download manually with TortoiseSVN (svn update), these files succesfully downloaded immediately without any problem, so I think something wrong with your code.

Edit:
I got some error messages too, see attached file.

I needed to update to Sierra, and now run into a problem using latest fpcuplaz; it maybe Sierra related or fpclazup or something else.

Hi!

As I wrote, I use the second line, what I wanted (!), I need only the fixed version of Lazarus/fpc.

Now, I get error messages window again, see attached files. (translated: has stopped working)

The downloading of the bootstrapper was not completed. SVN error.
Re-run the whole sequence again.
With a bit of an advice:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. ./fpclazup_osx_x86 --fpcurl="trunk" --lazurl="trunk" --verbose --getfullrepo
As you can see, I have added  --getfullrepo
This will download the full repo, so a re-run of the fpcup command will not download everything again, but just the missing files.
This makes re-running the command a breeze (except for all the cleaning, compiling and installing).

@totya
The error you show means, that the binutils are there and the whole build-process has started and partly completed.
Also for you, in case of doubt, just rerun the command.
It will clean, rebuild and install.

In general, the hardest part for fpcup is the downloading of the sources needed for building everything.
It is hard to counter all possible errors of SVN. Therefore, I advice to use --getfullrepo, and just do a re-run.
In most cases, this will work.
And, updating FPC/Laz is as easy as the same re-run !! The sole purpose of fpcup !

Perhaps I should make --getfullrepo the default (again).

edit: there is a fpcup error when trying to install fixes ... will solve and update.

Okay, thanks, I rerun this command... but I can't see the log file, because fpcup.log is much shorter than real log what I have seen on the command window. Where is the full log file?

I asked the Windows Lazarus/fpc fixed version, with crosscompile (x86 and x64)
If I change the compiler to x64 mode:

... if you want to debug 64bit, you need a gdb for 64bit !
fpclazup gives you only 32bit gdb.

64bit can be found here:
http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/binaries/x86_64-win64/gdb/bin/

Or inside a recent mingw.

Post by: totya on October 23, 2016, 10:56:36 pm
Thanks, but I asked the crosscompile version (many times), so your app can't install it automatically?

Okay, and what is the destination directory name?

On installed x64 Lazarus I have "mingw" directory, but under FPCLAZFixes, I don't see it.

Edit:
I see one gdb.exe in fpcbootstrap directory, but this date is very old (2011).

Hi
Got some progress, I thought I would check my xcode version after upgrading to Sierra ( ie make sure using 7.3.1), when I launched xcode after a few seconds a popup appeared informing me that it was downloaded required files ( or something along the lines)
When it completed; I restarted the install of fpclazup; it has now completed the install....

Not sure if xcode is the issue or coincidental to something else on svn ?

Cross-compiling in general is something that is not for everybody.
If you want recent versions learn how to get and install recent versions.
That means install a recent version of mingw or cygwin, in your case (and my favorite) cygwin64

It is not rocket science.....

Btw: a 2011 version of GDB seems reasonably recent and usable. It has proper pedigree in stability.

Hi!

You completely misundertand this subject, but no problem.

My first ask is the workable lazarus/fpc + fixes + crosscompile, and where is it? :) Doesn't work, certainly. Debgugger crashed with the default project, because no gdb installed. This is the crosscompile version of Lazarus/fpc?
And you say nothing certainly, my ask the destination directory for gdb, and where is it? I don't see this information in your "answer".

Put some effort in. What you ask is not standard for a distribution.
You have to do that yourself.

- Fixes are not releases. You compile everything yourself
- Cross-compilers are generally not releases. You compile everything yourself
- Installing a debugger is easy, both with mingw and cygwin on Windows.

What do you want?
Does your mother still feed you with a spoon?

Figure it out yourself. That's the only way you will ever learn something

[edit]
In this case I am not grumpy, but what you are asking is what seasoned programmers do. You are not one of them.
I will be glad to help but first try it (seriously) yourself and read up on all documentation.

Fpcup has been updated.

* on Mac, correct shortcuts to start Lazarus are generated in apps and on desktop.
* on Win, Lazarus GDB versions for win32 and win64 are installed and made available.
* on all: fpc(laz)up will try to find the correct bootstrapper online; or will build the correct one; no OVERRIDEVERSIONCHECK anymore.
* on all: by default, repos will be downloaded again, as has always been the case with the original fpcup by Reinier.
* on all: you should be able to install as low as FPC 2.0.0 with fpcup.

Additional:

A special branch of FPC and Lazarus is maintained on http://newpascal.org/
A complete cross-compile enabled release, made with fpcup,is available at:
https://github.com/newpascal/newpascal/releases/tag/np_sc-v1.0.34
If you follow the instructions, it will give you an easy FPC + extras + cross-compilation.
Among the extras are: management operators, interface RTTI, the mORMot (allow the duck).

Been using that special branch. Thanks.
Any chance to get all these features (Generics.* etc. needed) to the official Lazarus release?
Have recently updated the SVN Laz 1.7 + FPC 3.1.1 and the Generics.* were not there out of the box (maybe available in a package but not already preinstalled).

Post by: DonAlfredo on October 26, 2016, 11:18:09 am
You're welcome !

The process of getting new features for FPC and/or Lazarus approved can be long.
Features have to be tested on many platforms and must be compatible with future goals of the core maintainers.

However, sometimes one can benefit from bleeding edge features like the ones available in the NewPascal branch. And NewPascal can benefit from the feedback of its users.
And, in the end, FPC and Lazarus will hopefully benefit from these efforts.

So, feel free to use, test and especially feel free to give feedback.

New features are coming, so stay tuned !!

ps:
You can use fpclazup to install newpascal yourself:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. fpclazup.exe --installdir="c:\whereyoulikeyournewpascal" --fpcurl="newpascal" --lazurl="newpascal"

Environment: Windows 10 64-bit
You invited questions, so here goes..

I have a simple question (I hope!)
Having downloaded and installed NewPascal, it runs and debugs Win32 applications just fine.
I can cross-compile to Win64, but only if I switch debugger path (in IDE options) to a 64-bit debugger.  (I can live with that)

I was intrigued with the possibility of cross-compiling to Target OS=linux so I downloaded and unpacked the CrossLinuxi386.rar, which created and populated a NewPascal/cross folder.  The CrossLinuxx64.rar added the 64-bit subfolders.

But here's where I am stuck when choosing target=linux at the 'cannot find fcllaz' message - a clue that I haven't set the options/paths correctly.

So here's the simple question: How can I configure a project in the NewPascal environment to successfully cross-compile to linux?
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update

Thanks for the feedback !
I have tried to reproduce your issue.

Downloaded NPLazBaseWin32.rar archives from:
https://github.com/newpascal/newpascal/releases/tag/np_sc-v1.0.34
Unpack into c:\NewPascal
Started Lazarus with the provided link.
Runs win32 and win64 out-of-the-box without debugger switching.

So, this is strange: the archive should give you win32/64 automagically, if started with the provided link !
It does of my pc, it does not on yours. So, I cannot reproduce.

Downloaded the two Linux archives. Can compile for Linux without problem.
(if you add this into the top of your lpr-file ; due to the Arch libs that are provided by these archives):
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. {$IFDEF LINUX}
  2.   {$IFDEF FPC_CROSSCOMPILING}
  3.     {$linklib libc_nonshared.a}
  4.     {$IFDEF CPUARM}
  5.       // if we have a GUI, uncomment

Sorry - I started a new application, put the above lines in the lpr and tried target OS=linux, but still got the fcllaz error.

Thanks for trying to reproduce - I know how frustrating it is when that happens!
I was very careful to follow instructions.  Unpacked all rars into c:/NewPascal and used the shortcut link provided etc.  The folder structure looks as the web page describes.

Some thoughts:
After the standard install, and looking through the config file and IDE options, I can't find anything pointing to the C:\NewPascal\cross folder.  Where would that reference be?

The IDE/options/debugger type and path points to C:\NewPascal\fpcbootstrap\gdb.exe
I downloaded the 64-bit debugger and added its path to the 'additional search path' but no go.  Its only when I change the path to the 64-bit debugger that 64-bit compile/run works.  When I then change to a 32-bit target, it won't run until I change the debugger path back to the fpcbootstrap one.

Should I add something into the Environment PATH?

Should I edit the C:\NewPascal\config_lazarus\idemake.cfg? (which contains only references to win32)

I notice that the C:\NewPascal\lazarus\units folder only contains an i386-win32 folder.  Is this right?

The default win32 configuration works perfectly by the way (so I must have done something right when installing)

Can you suggest any tests I can do, or screengrabs to post?
I once downloaded and ran the CodeTyphoon distribution, which cross-compiled out of the box, so I know it's possible on my system.   I don't want to use codetyphoon though for compatibility (and ethical) reasons.

There's obviously some difference between my environment and yours.  I wonder what it could be?  I hope it's some obvious error that I can fix.
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on October 26, 2016, 03:35:26 pm
Good feedback !!

Now going into details
You should have a c:\NewPascal\mingw directory, containing newest gdb (7.11) for both win32/64.
The debugger should point to: $(LazarusDir)\..\mingw\$(TargetCPU)-$(TargetOS)\bin\gdb.exe.
So, should automagically switch-over.

I have included a screenshot.

Hi!

If you can't understand what is the problem, please do not write me similar stupid things, thanks.

fcpup (fplazup) is an application, which can make own programing environment. I asdked a workable fixes version, with crosscompile (x86/x64). After I tired it, it didn't work. It's simple. If you don't understand this very simple situation, please learn it. Otherwise my mother is dead long time ago. Please do not write me similar stupid things anymore, thank you.

Win32/64 bit crosscompiling now without problems.  I noticed the minigw path was 2nd in the drop-down list, so selected that.  Gra├žias @DonAlfredo :)

Any ideas on the linux 32/64 cross-compiling?  It's not as important as the Win 64-bit thing, but it would be really convenient if my NewPascal environment would do it.

Post by: DonAlfredo on October 26, 2016, 04:01:26 pm
To be honest, I do not yet know what is the problem with your install.
So, in order to help you, I need some more info.

Your fpc.cfg should contain something like:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. # begin fpcup do not remove x86_64-linux
  2. #cross compile settings dependent on both target OS and target CPU
  3. #IFDEF FPC_CROSSCOMPILING
  4. #IFDEF CPUX86_64
  5. #IFDEF LINUX
  6. # Inserted by fpcup 22-10-2016 13:44:41
  7.  
  8. -FDC:\NewPascal\cross\bin\x86_64-linux\
  9. -XPx86_64-linux-
  10. -Tlinux
  11. -FlC:\NewPascal\cross\lib\x86_64-linux\
  12. -Xr/usr/lib
  13. #ENDIF
  14. #ENDIF
  15. #ENDIF
  16. # end fpcup do not remove

So, when you choose Linux 64 bit, these settings point FPC towards the right binutils and libraries.
binutils: C:\NewPascal\cross\bin\x86_64-linux
libs: C:\NewPascal\cross\lib\x86_64-linux

Also, you should have a directory C:\NewPascal\fpc\units\x86_64-linux, filled with all kinds of packages.

Correct ?

To be honest, I do not yet know what is the problem with your install.
So, in order to help you, I need some more info.

Your fpc.cfg should contain something like:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. # begin fpcup do not remove x86_64-linux
  2. #cross compile settings dependent on both target OS and target CPU
  3. #IFDEF FPC_CROSSCOMPILING
  4. #IFDEF CPUX86_64
  5. #IFDEF LINUX
  6. # Inserted by fpcup 22-10-2016 13:44:41
  7.  
  8. -FDC:\NewPascal\cross\bin\x86_64-linux\
  9. -XPx86_64-linux-
  10. -Tlinux
  11. -FlC:\NewPascal\cross\lib\x86_64-linux\
  12. -Xr/usr/lib
  13. #ENDIF
  14. #ENDIF
  15. #ENDIF
  16. # end fpcup do not remove
  17.  
So, when you choose Linux 64 bit, these settings point FPC towards the right binutils and libraries.
binutils: C:\NewPascal\cross\bin\x86_64-linux
libs: C:\NewPascal\cross\lib\x86_64-linux

Correct ?
OK @DonAlfredo - I think I know what the problem was, and it was (as expected) my fault.

Here's how I messed up - it may be useful to you to solve other folk's problems.

1. I installed NewPascal with cross-compilers for Linux 32/64 as per instructions
2. I opened an existing project which had been created with my previous fpc/laz distribution and found it wouldn't cross-compile. (mistake #1)
(this was my error - I should have tested with a new clean empty Application in NewPascal)
3. In order to 'fix' things, I ran fpcup in update mode to the NewPascal folder.  I now know this was a stupid thing to do because it must have messed up the NewPascal environment by deleting the linux fpc/units and God knows what else. (mistake #2)
4. I then (belatedly) tested using Create New Application in NewPascal for Win64, Linux32 and Linux64.  It didn't work of course and I blamed the distribution. (mistake #3)

Now I see that I made 2 fatal assumptions:
1. Ignoring an existing projects environment (lpi file?) when testing a new environment
2. Trying to 'fix it myself' using fpcup, and then compounding the error by not telling you I'd done it when asking for help.

BTW in order to cross-compile to linux 32/64, every lpr file needs the lines you posted.  It doesn't work otherwise. Perhaps you could put that on the web page.
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. $IFDEF LINUX}
  2.   {$IFDEF FPC_CROSSCOMPILING}
  3.     {$linklib libc_nonshared.a}
  4.     {$IFDEF CPUARM}
  5.       // if we have a GUI, uncomment
  6.       // {$linklib GLESv2}
  7.     {$ENDIF}
  8.   {$ENDIF}
  9. {$ENDIF}      
  10.  
All works well now, and the 'NewPascal initiative' is a credit to your ingenuity and hard work.

Perhaps the only good thing to come from this is perhaps to warn NewPascal users NOT to:
1. Test cross-compiling using an existing project (or delete the lpi file before trying it)
2. Attempt to update using fpcup unless you know what you're doing (I didn't!)

Thanks for your patience, and I am now loving the 'NewPascal environment' :)

Post by: DonAlfredo on October 26, 2016, 05:13:23 pm
Mmmm ... yes, you definitely messed up the install ...  ;)

But anyhow, this is very usefull feedback.
Especially the fact that the included fpclazup destroys the install. We will take measures.

The fact that {$linklib libc_nonshared.a} is needed, is still not a general fact.
It is however for NewPascal, due to the link-libs that come (mostly) from Arch Linux.
It has also been reported on the bugtracker, in a slightly different setting:
http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=30112

So, enjoy the install. And perhaps also enjoy the mORMot (in ccr) that will elevate your database experience ... and the new features that are coming soon ...
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: minesadorada on October 26, 2016, 06:05:44 pm
Here's the test project that cleared it up for me.
It has an lpi file containing the correct paths for c:\NewPascal, and the header in the program unit.
It should compile (run/compile many modes) without error if the NewPascal environment is correct for Win32, Win64, Linux32 and Linux64.

And now do yourself some more joy ... :D

1)
Download the Android archive, install LAMW and have FPC fun on your phone and/or tablet.
Even the mORMot runs flawless on mobile !

2)
Buy yourself an Odroid-C2 and enjoy FPC/Lazarus on a cheap 64 bit superboard with eMMC that only consumes 2-3 Watt !

3)
Get yourself a free (for a year) Amazon Web Service t2 server, run a mORMot database server (REST,json) under Linux 64bit and connect with all !

Well, that is a severe error ... without much extra info unfortunately.
However, the best part of fpcup is, that, in most cases, a restart will resume the (download) activities from where they stopped. Compiling will start from the beginning naturally.
If the problem persists, please try to deliver somewhat more info !

Hi
AM I doing something wrong?

Thought I would install lazarus and fpc on a new PC using fplazup.
I download the latest version, and it does nothing, there are no included exe etc to start an install.

DO I need to have a working lazarus installation to create the binaries so I can then update it?

This was not the behavior of previous versions?

I played a bit with fpcupdeluxe because of the freebsd crosscompile bugreport on win10/x64

- I get a smartscreen warning. Could be the "downloaded and EXE" status, but could also be the shortcut placed on the desktop (outside of an installer /setup that is probably a suspect action)
- the path (topleft edit box) sometimes is red on startup, sometimes only becomes red after changing something. (add edit.refresh after setting color?)

I select "fixes", i386 and "freebsd" and press "fpc only".

It begins, and downloads a 64-bit 2.6.2 compiler.  (why so ancient?) and checks out 3.0.0 compiler and rtl dirs.

It then builds a 64-bit 3.0.0 compiler (why?), and worse it then also builds the checked out fpc/ (FIXES ) repository with x86_64-win64.

What did I do wrong ? Should I have done install crosscompiler?

I tried that, and that fails as follows:

It begins, and downloads a 64-bit 2.6.2 compiler.  (why so ancient?) and checks out 3.0.0 compiler and rtl dirs.

That's because:
- only 2.6.X is a bootstrap release available on official websites? Which is supposed to be 2.6.4? But 2.6 is documented?
I often complained about that because there are FPC 3 binaries that are official.
- BigChimp heritage.

I have always found this confusing and have no clue WHY the starting compiler should not be 3.
The rest is unsupported after all. But a 2.6 should be a bootstrap for 3.

@marcov
Yes, you should have done install crosscompiler !

In general, fpcupdeluxe is a continuation of fpcup.
And, as correctly stated by Thaddy: its BigChimp heritage.
And so, fpcupdeluxe tries to continue following his rules.

In general:
Fpcupdeluxe needs much more user instruction.
A start of a wiki is there, but very very basic.
Will work on it further.

@marcov
A good wiki should/could  have guided you into using fpcupdeluxe the right way !

Here's another one with lots of "Error running fpcup. Technical details: ...error executing sequence" errors when trying to install with "any lazURL= directive.

Looking for a way to automate fpc & lazarus' setup altogether with a selection of packages in a reproducible way, I came upon your fpclazup yesterday. Unfortunately, 19 of 20 attempts to bring up lazarus failed, amongst them variations with the default fpcup.ini and --lazURL="trunk|fixes|fixes1.6|stable", or without "--lazURL" specification and different sets of added packages. (As I have captured the respective output, I could supply additional information if necessary.)

Remarkably none of them involved any svn errors, instead of that I mostly got the triple
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. fpclazup: info: Error running fpcup. Technical details: error executing sequence suggestedpackages; line: 5, param: suggestedpackages
  2. fpclazup: info: Error running fpcup. Technical details: error executing sequence UniversalDefault; line: 2, param: suggestedpackages
  3. fpclazup: info: Error running fpcup. Technical details: error executing sequence Default; line: 6, param: UniversalDefault
  4.  
at the end.

So I would ask for a short explanation what this exactly means, i.e. how to track down from these data to the corresponding line in fpcup.ini.

The context is: fpclazup-x86_64-linux, based on commit fpcup016 (20170106) Build date: 2017/01/08 10:44:55 Compiled for CPU: x86_64 on linux, downloaded yesterday.

Here's another one
IF you test than use THE LAST version.
Otherwise you maybe accusing the people who are involved in this project of something that is already solved.

Plz: give an example that reflects the current state, name a version, your platform, etc.

Not very helpful.

Explicitely added for completeness: I'm running Debian Linux 8 (Jessie) 64bit, with no fpc or lazarus distro's package installed.


And I'm far from accusing anyone for anything, I just asked for a little help (explanation) what the phrase "error executing sequence suggestedpackages; line: 5, param: suggestedpackages" means, especially "line: 5", as it is surely not the line count of the ini-file. Sorry, too, for my imperfect English - I'm not a native speaker nor a developer nor computer scientist.

In other words: When getting the message stressed out in bold, then what line in fpclazup.ini is worthwile to comment, or what else can be done to track down what goes wrong?

I just tried again, on another machine, it's also Debian GNU/Linux 8 64 bit (4.9.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.2-2~bpo8+1 (2017-01-26) x86_64 GNU/Linux).

I ran (as I'd like to install that and as fpclazup itself suggests), with a freshly downloaded fpclazup-x86_64-linux;

 ./fpclazup-x86_64-linux  --lazURL=trunk

No luck for me, again this "error executing sequence suggestedpackage" thing, which I don't understand in deeper detail.

~/development/lazarus is present, lazbuild too, but no lazarus and startlazarus.

I won't really believe it could be a distro specific thing, but do you? If so, is there any case against running ./fpclazup-x86_64-linux on a virtual machine running mint and then just copy ~/development/lazarus to my $HOME?

Looks like the help does it again !

Again, I would like to ask you to try do do the same as I did:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. ./fpclazup-x86_64-linux --fpcURL=trunk --lazURL=trunk --installdir=mycleanandemptyandnewinstalldir

This is important, due to other installs floating around and maybe spoiling things.
And to have an idea about the error while we are trying to reproduce !

OK, I have started exactly
Code: HTML5  [Select][+][-]
  1. ./fpclazup-x86_64-linux --fpcURL=trunk --lazURL=trunk --installdir=mycleanandemptyandnewinstalldir
as requested.

As I guessed, help ain't our showstopper:

  161.  
  162. - make sure there's a valid SVN executable in your path.
  163. - make sure the GNU binutils (make etc), windres, subversion client are installed
  164.  e.g. on Debian/Ubuntu: aptitude install build-essential mingw32-binutils subversion
  165.  ln -s /usr/bin/i586-mingw32msvc-windres /usr/bin/windres
  166.  see http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_Resources#Checking_you_have_windres
  167. If that does not work ... last resort action :
  168. Remove all files from install-directory, and try again
  169. fpclazup: info: 4-2-17 19:25:11: fpcup finished.


Will follow any suggesions.

The question mentioned above "is it a good idea to just copy ~/development/lazarus to different $HOMEs" seems quite relevant to me, e.g. for a classroom rollout. What do you think about that? Is there anything to be said against it (from theoretical aspects)?
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: DonAlfredo on February 04, 2017, 07:48:51 pm
How unfortunate that this install will not work for you !

As the error is similar between the two tries, there is something outside of fpclazup that prevents a correct install.
2 common sources of Lazarus build errors: ([out of memory],[out of diskspace]).

Would you mind running:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. ./fpclazup-x86_64-linux --fpcURL=trunk --lazURL=trunk --installdir=mycleanandemptyandnewinstalldir --verbose
This will use the existing sources and will not download anything.

About copying the install:
There are some hardcoded paths.
Using ~ will be tricky, unless you give every pc an equal developer user.
You can install into a shared public directory, inside /var or /usr/local, which would be the same on every pc.
Or use a proxy on your outgoing server, that caches FPC and Lazarus.
Title: Re: fpcup 3.1.1 Update
Post by: sierdolg on February 04, 2017, 11:36:40 pm
Both conditions ([out of memory],[out of diskspace]) are very unlikely for the two PCs tested on (8 and 16 GB of RAM, and > 1 TB diskspace free).

Attached you find the last 160k of console output (unfortunately "konsole" only stores the last 1000 lines, as I see now); if that is not enough, I will try again on Monday with redirection.

May be one of
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. tachartcombos.pas(403) Fatal: (10026) There were 1 errors compiling module, stopping
  2. and
  3. fpclazup: ERROR: TUniversalInstaller: package DateTimeCtrlsDsgn.lpk not found ... skipping.
is critical? I have been seeing them since 3 days now regularly.

Thanks again for your great support, and the installer itself, anyway ;-)

Post by: DonAlfredo on February 05, 2017, 08:05:03 am
Thanks for the report.
However, still no clues about the actual error.

If you are still with me, please do the following:

Get fpcupdeluxe: https://github.com/newpascal/fpcupdeluxe/releases/download/v1.2.0i/fpcupdeluxe-x86_64-linux

Start fpcupdeluxe.
Click "InstallDir select".
Navigate towards your install directory. ("/mnt/harddisk/home/testuser3/SOFTWARE/Linux/lazarus/fpclazup/mycleanandemptyandnewinstalldir") and select this directory.
Click "Setup+".
Uncheck "Split FPC source and bins".
Press ok to go back to the main screen.

With the above settings, fpcupdeluxe will do the same as fpclazup.
However, the main screen of fpcupdeluxe could give us more info about the error.

Click the "trunk" button to start the install. The old sources should be used ! No downloads.

After succes, be happy. After error, please select and copy green screen (left click) and attach.

Post by: sierdolg on February 05, 2017, 11:58:06 am
Meanwhile being Happy for other reasons, as an alternative (Sunday, sun is shining, vnd very funny icons deluxe!) :o)

Of course, I'm willing to help in whatsoever possible way.

First, when you stated, fpclazupdeluxe in the configuration described does exactly the same as fpclazup, I expected it to fail. And so id did :-]

However, as expected also this seems interesting new information:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. Error: (lazarus) Compile package EditorMacroScript 0.0: terminated
  2. Error: (lazarus) Compile package lazreport 0.9.9: terminated
  3. Error: (lazarus) [TLazPackageGraph.CompileRequiredPackages] "Exit code 256"
  4. Error: (lazarus) Building IDE: Compile AutoInstall Packages failed.
  5.  

If that's not enough, then please have a look into the whole log attached.

Thanks a lot, and have a nice Sunday!

Here you go !

Most likely, you encountered a Lazarus bug, that has been resolved just a few moments ago.
Just rerun fpcupdeluxe ... it should succeed !

YES, you are awesome right!

In an euphoric mood I then added 2 packages I need, anchordocking + zeos, and rebuilt - it failed again.
For fpc I tried "trunk" as well as "default".

I don't see why lazarus_ccr is coming in. In the meantime, another try has been running with a new install directory and the two selected packages. And this (default+trunk+anchordocking+zeos)

Btw: Seeing how much luck it seems to need for a successful build, the idea of archiving the result as a kind of "snapshot" (for a working combination of fpc's, lazarus', and set of packages' versions) becomes even more desirable.
If there was a way to substitute "some hardcoded paths" you mentioned after unpacking, this would be great - quite a counterpart to distribution's packages, but on user level.

Hence, sometimes some "package (archive)" and "unpack" Buttons might be a valuable enrichment for fpclazup-deluxe too...? As I just tested, a 7zip of mycleanandemptyandnewinstalldir2 is 222 MB, which is affordable to archive.

Fpcup(*) builds an isolated install of FPC and Lazarus.
Isolated meaning: no environment paths changed; all in a single directory.
But with hardcoded paths (necessary for this isolation).

If you use a public available, non-specific install directory, you could indeed pack the whole install (with the startup link from your desktop), and copy it towards a new PC and use it out-of-the-box. Prequisit: if copied and unpacked in the same directory as used to build the whole install !!

That would be my advice.
I will not add an archive option however. This is too specific (and also to easy to do by yourself).

PS:
All fpcup(*) versions have been updated to use upcoming FPC 3.0.2 as the stable FPC version.
And I must say: this new stable is a very very good release of FPC !

Both sparta_dockedformeditor and UTF-8 work well here. What is wrong with UTF-8 in your system?
It was not finding it, may be a compiler switch I don't have set, or a package I have not loaded yet?
Trying to add a package that required it and it said not found :
rxpopupunit.pas(915,3) Error: Identifier not found "UTF8Delete"
rxpopupunit.pas(915,25) Error: Identifier not found "UTF8Length"
Where did you get the rcpopupunit ? It's not in the normal rx package.

Anyway... did that file include LazUtf8 in the uses? Because the functions are there.

Thankyou

Quick question on a Beagle or Pi3/4 Debian. 

debian@beaglebone:~/Downloads$ ./fcpupdeluxe

or

debian@beaglebone:~/Downloads$ sudo ./fpcupdeluxe

Hey jcdammeyer,

Both are fine and depend on where you want to deploy your install

debian@beaglebone:~/Downloads$ ./fcpupdeluxe

Most of the installs I make are inside my home folder, so I usually do not need sudo to install those.

debian@beaglebone:~/Downloads$ sudo ./fpcupdeluxe

If you're planning on installing it on /usr or /lib or even /opt this would be necessary.

The problem is that fpcupdeluxe install everything under one single folder and that is not compliant with having binaries under /usr/bin and the rest somewhere else under /usr/lib or the likes.

The main purpose of fpcupdeluxe is to have many installs side by side and for that matter it installs everything in one single folder, contrary to the Posix way of spreading stuff under it's designated folders.
So while it doesn't really matter if you use sudo or not, it's not really necessary since you most probably will install it under your home folder.

Hope this clears it out.

Cheers,
Gus

Hi Gus,
Thanks yes.   Makes sense now.
I did just finish installing into the debian/fcpupdeluxe folder without the sudo into this image:
bone-debian-10.9-lxqt-armhf-2021-04-27-4gb.img
Then installed the packages I've been using and tried compiling one the apps running on a 2018 version of the OS.  So far so good.
I've gone with the trunk version of the Lazarus install so that I don't have to keep editing the one library to get my polygon stuff working.
There are still a few issues I'm working on with the 2021 install and .dts files for capes that have the identifying EEROM but things are finally progressing again.

Next step is to see how well the 2021 OS version incorporates into the gpio group so that the pxl library blinky.lpi example doesn't need a sudo in order to run it.  And that will then lead to getting SPI control from within Lazarus to be able to transfer a bitmap out SPI to a touch screen display.  Something that was trivial in Python with the Adafruit libraries.
