Actually my problem was with units. All my compiles failed on unit
dependancies. I tried to recompile the units it was looking for, and
theb copied the .ppu and .o files to /usr/lib/fpc/1.0.7/units/linux, but
it still could not find them. copying them into the source directory
I can only imagine that either the fpc or the lazarus rpms created a
congiguration filed that caused these typical locations to be ignored by
the unit search routine.
I suspected thus, that the compatibility was broken between standard FPC
and lazarus at the configuration level, which means it should be
While then on the topic, when I start lazarus it tells me that some
functionality will be unavailable because it could not find the fpc
source directory. What does this mean ? That I need to install the FPC
sources in order to use lazarus ?
