Felipe thanks, but that is not much relevant as it has to do with fpc
running in 32-bit Linux on a AMD64 and that works( at least it did last
year) but I want to run it in 64-bit Linux.
I have installed the overnight snapshot fpc-2.1.1-20060702.x86_64.rpm
and it src companion without problems. However, fp is missing so I
cannot start the ide (is it not in this package?).
Then I installed lazarus-0.9.17-20060702.x86_64.rpm Also without a
problem. when I started it the lazarus environment appeared. It gave a
lot of warnings apparently due to the fact that the config-file was not
quite correct but at least it started. However, I cannot do anything at
all. When I try to drag e.g. a button to the form the buttonname is
crossed and no button appears on the form. In the console it is
complaining with all kind of messages (part is following):
[root at laguna tmp]# lazarus &
[3] 22538
[root at laguna tmp]# TApplication.IconChanged - TODO: convert this
message...no implementation in gtk or win32
NOTE: miscellaneous options file not found - using defaults
NOTE: codetools config file not found - using defaults
NOTE: help options config file not found - using defaults
TMainIDE.DoNewProject A
TMainIDE.DoNewEditorFile A NewFilename=
[TCustomFormEditor.CreateComponent] Class='TForm'
TMainIDE.DoNewEditorFile end unit1.pas
TApplication.HandleException Access violation
  Stack trace:
and then a lot of lines like this, but it doesn't crash.
I have not much experience with Lazarus so I have to dig into the
manual(s) but at least it's a start. The same happens when I start as a
normal user and not as "god".
Well a start is made. I first am going to find out where I can find the
IDE, the lazarus problem will follow.
If somebody has suggestions pleas let me know.
