Version 2.6.2 doesn't have all the latest for lazarus and has some issues with hard float on ARM. I have a working 2.6.2 on my ubuntu version on the odroid U2. The stuff that doesn't work on Lazarus with that version works perfectly on my funtoo on the
odroid U2 where I use fpc 2.7.1 from way back in may.

You must not have read what I wrote or have no clue whatsoever about the subject. Read it again and if you do not have any idea about the problem, just go away and let people who know comment.

I have no interest whatsoever in using binaries that I do not compile myself. For one thing, except for a version on Debian, a good version doesn't exist or is soft float.

Development version of fpc worked perfectly for what I did with it back in may but has been broken since. I would prefer using the lastest SVN stuff but it is has been useless since may.
