[SOLVED] Re-Compile Lazarus on FreeBSD
« on: December 25, 2020, 03:49:05 pm »
Hello Forum,

Sorry, for not being soo often here - I usually use the German Forum. But my question seems to be too special. So, they pointed me here.

My problem: re-compiling the Lazarus IDE on FreeBSD starts but does not seem to come to an end:
 I have installed FreeBSd 12.2 on an old MacBook Pro (8.2) which seems to run OK (the machine is not running MacOS anymore).

I want to use Lazarus on that machine so I installed Lazarus from the packages (latest). Installation went fine, but, when I try to compile the IDE (maybe to add some Lazarus packages; e.g. to get the 1-window-layout of the IDE) the compilation starts quite good. But after some time it looks like it is stopped: no new messages in the message window; title of menu-window shows "... compiling"; no possibility to start new compilation; error message about still running compiliation when shutting down IDE (or machine).

As I am not very familiar with Lazarus in detail (just did the above on Linux and never had that kind of problems), what can I do to fix it? Or, what can I do, to find out, what is going wrong here?

I hope some poeple with (Free)BSD experience are here.

Thank you for your help,

Photor

I just tested a new FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE VM with an installation of Lazarus (GTK2) from the ports collection.

There is one issue, FPC cannot find the linker -- it's looking for /bin/ld.bfd -- solved by soft-linking /usr/local/bin/ld.bfd to /bin. I've logged a bug for this in the BugTracker.

I can rebuild the Lazarus IDE without any issues from Tools > Build Lazarus... (tried a couple of different profiles).

I cannot install any packages from Package > Online Package Manager though - always the same error (see attachment).

Exactly what are you doing?
Lazarus 2.1 r65061 FPC 3.3.1 r49223 macOS 10.14.6 Xcode 11.3.1
Lazarus 2.3 r65500 FPC 3.3.1 r49634 macOS 11.5 aarch64 Xcode 12.5.1
Lazarus 2.1 r61574 FPC 3.3.1 r42318 FreeBSD 12.1 amd64 VMware VM
Lazarus 2.1 r61574 FPC 3.0.4 Ubuntu 20.04 Parallels VM
Lazarus 2.0.10 FPC 3.2.0 Win10 Parallels VM

Hello trev,

thank you for testing and the reply. I have not tried the soft link (I will do as soon as possible) but this sounds as the 1st solution to try out: no linker means no chance for a working executable. But why do I get no message about that - here is the output I get (only the last lines - if more is needed I can post of course):
Code: [Select]
....
sparta_fakeformbackground.pas(83,30) Hint: Parameter "AValue" not used

Compile package MemDSLaz 1.2.1: Success
Compile package InstantFPCLaz 1.0: Success
Compile package LazControlDsgn 0.0: Success
Compile package DBFLaz 0.1.1: Success


it just stops; nothing about linking.

So, thanks for now; I come back after testing with the soft link created.

Ciao,
Photor

PS: created the link and I was able to compile (and link and execute) one of my own projects (good). BUT unfortunately, compiling the Lazarus IDE did not work - same as before.

See if you can increase error verbosity,  by turning off filtering by right clicking on a line in the error window. After you do that you must try to recompile

I had the same problem with OPM. As I set the download directory to a visible and accessible one there was no problem with recompiling.

Hello Forum,

I have experimented a little more. After the linker is found now I have removed some (all?) non-default packages and started compiling the IDE again. Now I get the following:
Code: [Select]

That looks like trouble with the makefile or with the installed make-tool? The latter would be something special to FreeBSD I guess.

Any ideas?

I can't speak for xBSD, but thinking back to experience with Solaris which I believe is related: I note your reference to BFD, can you try the GNU binutils?

No need to (re)install binutils, it's a dependancy which is already installed.

You specified the FreeBSD make utility - you need to use the GNU make utility which is called gmake and is probably already installed in /usr/local/bin.

Quickest fix, delete your ~/.lazarus directory and re-run lazarus which should then prompt you for the setup again and this time specify gmake and not make. If you want debugging, you will also need to install gdb from ports as the system version is ancient and will not work (and is due to be removed in FBSD 13).

Am I missing something? This is the GNU binutils:

Code: [Select]

Architecture   : FreeBSD:12:amd64
Prefix         : /usr/local
Categories     : devel
Licenses       : GPLv3, LGPL3
Maintainer     : ports@FreeBSD.org
WWW            : https://www.gnu.org/software/binutils/

Description    :
The GNU Binutils are a collection of binary tools. The main ones are:

* ld - the GNU linker.
* as - the GNU assembler.

Most of these programs use BFD, the Binary File Descriptor library, to do
low-level manipulation. Many of them also use the opcodes library to assemble
and disassemble machine instructions.

This port may be used as a replacement for the system binutils and support
features from the latest versions of GCC.

For cross-compilation, see the devel/cross-binutils port.

Am I missing something? This is the GNU binutils:

You said "no need to install Binutils". I was emphasising that- certainly on Solaris- there were /two/ binutils: the native Solaris ones and the GNU ones (Oracle pulled the rug from under the maintainer of those as soon as they took over).

You agreed that it was important to check (g)make. Experience suggests that some of the other utilities might be problems, e.g. tar.

Is BFD use universal these days? I tend to get confused between that and Gold.

BFD is the default linker from the beginning. Gold is the new one that's not fully supported by FPC.

On FreeBSD LLVM is default nowadays.

So, I did some things in between:

gmake was not installed; binutils were. So, I installed gmake package.

To get a new clear start I moved away .lazarus directory. Now starting Lazarus comes with "Welcome to Lazarus IDE 2.0.10"-dialog that cpmplaines about missing FPC sources (the other entries are found and seem to be correct: make is set to "gmake").

The fpc sources are installed in version 3.2.0. The dialog is looking for rtl-directory, right? That can be found under /usr/local/lib/fpc/3.2.0/units/X86_64-freebsd/rtl. But specifying this (by hand or using browse.button) does not help - still get "Error: directory rtl not found".

One additional information that might be interesting: directly after FreeBSD was installed the package repo was quarterly. As lazarus version was not the latest version (as under Linux) I changed to latest and updated. But maybe something is left over.

Ciao,
Photor
