Hi Florian and other friends
I am involved in porting existing C code to Arm Linux for AT91SAM9263 Ek
board with 340x220 display. I need to write lots of console kinda apps.
I am using a "qemu-system-arm" emulated Armel Debian machine on a
Debian x86 Lenny distro for writing code. I installed
fpc-2.2.0.arm-linux.tar on the emulated linux.
Which compiling a simple helloworld.pas , i get the classic error of
System.o being EABI 0 while target is EABI 4.
I have got the svn download of fpc, and trying to compile it in the
emulated machine for ARM for the past 2 days. I have given :-
make clean all ARCH=arm OPT="-CfSoft".
Its compiling for quite long and finally comes to rest endlessly while
Let me remind you that i am dont use a Cross compiler, but an emulated
My boss and colleagues are 'C only' programmers . Doing all kinda
harware access for embedded devices using C. They have developed pretty
good & successful apps using pure C without an OS. What i have been
trying is to convice them to use Freepascal for the Application part,
which is presently console Apps. The next stage is to develop X apps
using Lazarus. But for these I need to get FPC working.
