Ok thx... I got the linux units via mirc... someone with linux already had
free pascasl 1.0.6 installed :)

So I have all this stuff now...

Someone else said to compile the linux rtl... that might not be needed now

Suppose I did have to compile the rtl...

I am guessing I would have to go to:


and then type the FPC stuff..

or isn't that the RTL ?

Anyway... I have problems now with as-new.exe  ( the binutils stuff )

It says:

'The procedure entry point asprintf could not be located in the dynamic link
library cygwin1.dll"

So I am ready to try that NASM stuff now :)

Going to look into it :D

I am also going to give mingw another try in case in previous attempts I
used the wrong make also.. but I dont think so...
I think mingw for some reason used the right make... but I go see :) right
now :)

Yep... msys always used the right make.

$ which make

Probably the way msys is started.
