That would be an interesting option, and, if available for ARM processors, it would be the ideal distribution for the Raspberry PI (see topic http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,15362.0.html).

In fact, there was an Ubuntu LiveCD available from Austrian University of Applied Sciences hosting (see http://www.sigma-server.com/liveCD/Ubuntu-7.10-NTC-Lazarus.iso), however, this is an outdated version.

thxs ...
it will be wonderfull if some group of person take this and make a disto ( forked from ubuntu for exemple ) and add these IDE to it (Lazarus, CodeBlocks ...)

Customization of Ubuntu is an easy task. I've learned it few months ago and I've cusomized a CD for my children (2.5 G) which contains games and educational applications and Arabic support and many desktop options (gnome, unity, kde, and XFCE).

You can do it your self, just follow the instructions on this blog:

You can use Opensuse Build Service/SUSE Studio

Yet why not install any popular distro and then simply install Lazarus?

Lazarus in linux distro as default IDE is good idea but I guess it will be more like makreting manipulation than help with installation? Because installation of lazarus for example on ubuntu could not be easier:
Quote
sudo aptitude install lazarus
This command will download and install stable lazarus, free pascal and all dependent libraries (like gcc, gtk headers etc.) Official ubuntu repository has already latest Lazarus 0.9.30.2 and FPC 2.4.4 so you don't even need to add lazarus repo.

You can use ArchLinux it is allways with lastest software (kernel in respository is allways lastest stable from www.kernel.org) and you can install fpc 2.6.0,lazarus svn or stable with
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S fpc fpc-src lazarusWith Arch you can make Larch 'Live Arch' if you are experienced with linux.

also Slax can be build with Lazarus to be live USB or cd-dvd distro www.slax.org

Ubuntu is the way, a lot of support.

The hot ticket is Tinycore. The key difference is their approach to the repository. You set up a local repo and you don't just apt-get applications from a remote repo, your personal repo is your FILE SYSTEM. You now write TO your repo into a package or extension, or even a vhd via an apt-SET.
Now Tinycore uses it's loop mounting system, cleverly separating OS from the file system.
You can install the OS to hard drive but it is IDEAL to boot from cd/DVD. Why? You are guaranteed a pristine boot every time. Plus, all system files ( like MBR ) are read only...no more viruses! You are only booting @10mb into ram. Next the packages and extensions are mounted via the repo.

This is just like our package/component registration system is it not? And currently, I am afraid to explore alternative setups for fear of breaking my install. This is not Lazarus fault, it is our OS fault. We need an OS that can keep up with Lazarus.

All this complexity can be resolved by a new and improved file manager that adds this functionality in the mix.

Cheers

Forgot to mention FPC and Lazarus are in the TC repository for easy install.

Using a good distribution you don't need support..
Go Arch!  ;)

Don't think there will be a need for a distribution with Lazarus installed by default, most programmers won't have any trouble installing the tools they need. And for those just starting.. finding, installing and configuring the tools they need is the best track to start learning.

There are currently some discussions about the first programming language for the Raspberry Pi, some of them explicitly covering Lazarus and Free Pascal.

See:

http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/general-discussion/programming-with-insert-language-here/

http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/educational-applications/best-first-language-choice/

http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/projects-and-collaboration-general/free-pascal-compiler-for-the-pi-freepascal-org/

http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/off-topic/pros-and-cons-of-programming-language-x/

It may be useful to demonstrate there the benefits of using Lazarus / Free Pascal. It would be a great perspective if Lazarus would be bundled with a Linux distribution fo the Pi.
