It seems i am unable to find a way how to install lazarus on 64 bit slackware system.
My goal is to make a 64 bit version of my DLL (.so in linux) which was writen in delphi. All is fine in 32 bit system. I use Arch Linux to build the 32 bit version, and using 1.0.2 Lazarus. I can use the .so file in 32bit slackware 13.1 with no problem.
Here is what i have tried so far:
Succesfuly installed 64bit version of fpc (v2.4.0).
Downloaded source codes of Lazarus from svn
svn co http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk lazarus. Compile failed with "expected := found in" at
for Node in Self do line of
Found no solutions on google.
Next: I have found some Lazarus tar file v0.9.30, extracted it
make clean all.
Failed. Again some kind of error at some line in some file.
Next: I have found this page http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazarus/files/?source=navbar
Downloaded fpc, fpc source and lazarus 1.0.4 packages by going into "Lazarus Linux x86_64 RPM" link.
Turned out RPM belongs to another linux distrbution so
installpkg doesnt work. Google told me i could use another package manager which was already in slackware, so i did, but then it started spitting out all the
dependency missing stuff and i was way too tired to search for explanations as to what it was and where can i get it from. Each package resulted in even more errors.
Could somebody please tell me, step by step, how can i install lazarus and compile my dll?
I am sure i am doing something wrong (im really new to linux systems), but i have no idea what and none of the guides out there seem to tell me.
