It should be stressed that this problem is not isolated to one user; I
have got questions from at least two
users of Lightweight IDE. The IDE has nothing to do with it, of course,
it relies on FPC finding the
assembler. I suppose the IDE could call as itself when need arise, but
that seems like an unnecessary
One of the users reporting problems did search for as, and found it in
/developer/usr/bin/as! So Xcode
was installed, and "as" was installed, but not in /usr/bin/as!
Maybe Apple has changed the paths in some Xcode version? I have no
problems on my MBP/10.5 though.
Perhaps an alias from /usr/bin/as would help? Or is there anything else
that FPC needs?
