I get it working by removing the last lines (complete INPUT) from link.res
and running ppas.bat, but can someone explain it?

this is what I erased from link.res file:

Hi Michael and list!

I am a teacher in the process of making the computer science department of a
brazilian university and a college switch fo free pascal. So far, everybody
is liking it!

I have the Windows version of MySQL installed but cannot link the testdb.pp
example suplied with fpc-1.0.4 for Windows. I tells it cannot find

My ppc396.cfg is points to the lib directory of my Mysql installation. Using
the debuging options from ppc386 and ldw I could find it is looking for
libmysqlclient.a and not mysqlclient.lib as suplied with mysql. I tried
creating a copy using the name expected by the linker, and now it complains
it cannot find -lm. :-(

Should I get a libm.a file somewhere (from a cygwin32 distro)? Or am I going
the wrong direction?

Any help will be apreciated. It will be great to fave a FPC app using mysql
and gtk+ running on both Windows and Linux. :-)

[]s, Fernando Lozano
