Hi Jonas,

I've done that. Still can't compile code due to ld:

Assembling dentist
Linking Dentist
/usr/bin/ld: warning: link.res contains output sections; did you forget -T?
/home/pi/fpc-2.6.4/lib/fpc/2.6.4/units/arm-linux/rtl/cprt0.o: In 
function `_haltproc_eabi':
(.text+0x88): undefined reference to `_fini'
/home/pi/fpc-2.6.4/lib/fpc/2.6.4/units/arm-linux/rtl/cprt0.o: In 
function `_haltproc_eabi':
(.text+0x90): undefined reference to `_init'
Dentist.pas(106) Error: Error while linking
Dentist.pas(106) Fatal: There were 1 errors compiling module, stopping
Fatal: Compilation aborted
Error: /usr/bin/ppcarm returned an error exitcode

That is the result of: fpc Dentist.pas -Fusource/lib 

So I'm not sure where to go from here.
