Hello guys,

i hope someone can give me a quick hint for my problem.

I just installed FreePascal (v1.04 as found on the web site) on my Linux 
machine, running Mandrake 8.0.
I couldn't use the RPM installer under KDE, as it asked me to insert the 
second CD of the Mandrake distribution, which i don't have.
So i went to the command line and tried to install using rpm directly, 
which seemed to work fine.

Now when i try to compile a small test program, i get an error message from 
the linker. I think i might have to adjust a setting somewhere, so i would 
appreciate a quick hint. Here is the output of compiler and linker:

Free Pascal Compiler version 1.0.4 [2000/12/18] for i386

thanks and take care,
