Sorry if this is a duplicate. I sent it from my phone yesterday but it has
not shown up yet, possibly due to the html issue.

I was looking to try FPC and I downloaded the Linux version. I saw the
latest release isn't available for Solaris.

Do you guys plan on releasing the 2.6.0 version on Solaris and is there a
timeframe? Do you plan on continuing to support Solaris? I would be
interested in running both the Intel and SPARC versions if they come

Another question is on 2.6.0 on Linux. I cannot run the fp ide because I
have glibc 2.9. The error message I get says

fp: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by fp)

That is really a recent version! Even the latest Slackware from 1 year ago
only has glibc 2.13. Is this really needed or can it be built against my
version of glibc?

I have various other stuff going wrong when trying to build some of the
samples like the fpc compiler not being able to find certain libraries.
Should I post the error messages here or should I look for a bug tracker? I
am not sure anything is a bug since I am new to all this. I installed into
my home directory and am using all the defaults.

Thank you.
