Dear Tomas ,

No . It is a PC with Intel processor ( i386 ) .

In the Debian 5.0.0 package installer , searching fpc or lazarus is not 
finding any package ,
but  in Debian web site  package repository  there are  lazarus and  
fpc  packages  .  When  their  pages  are  visited , they are saying 
that use Synaptic , but Synaptic is not finding either Lazarus or FPC .

I tried only .deb packages from links obtained from Lazarus web site : 
Download Lazarus , and .rpm packages from Lazarus snapshot servers .

Jonas Maebe said that Debian 5.0.0 is using EABI , but FPC and Lazarus 
packages are  old ABI .

When sources are tried to be compiled by make clean all , it is given an 
error about

  .../ld :   glib is not found  .

 From GTK web site I have downloaded latest Glib , Gtk , and Pango 
packages , but

  make install

steps did not solve the above missing glib library problem .


Thank you very much .
