The latest version of LAzarus is in CVS.  Please pull it and take a look.  I still have that problem if you comment out line 337 it'll crash but with it in it seems to work.

Here's something interesting though.  Run it and open a file.  You'll see a TON of output in your terminal window.  Once you open something, close lazarus and open editor.pp and put {$H+} in right before the {$mode objfpc} line and re-run it.  Try to open something.  Did it work?

Yep I am running both KDE and GNOME.  All of our stuff is built on top of GTK+
that means that it does not require either desktop to run but it will
run equally well on both.

Glade is a visual forms designer written in C and is a full up and running
visual layout tool.  Glade saves it's project file in XML format. I am
hammering away at a XML parser built wit the unit scan.pp.  The idea is to
integrate our IDE with glade.  This should allow us to get to rad status very
quickly indeed.  The layout engine is a part that would take us many moons of
programming but if I can incorporate glade we should be able to do something
substantial very quickly.

BTW I run the IDE in a different directory than the source that I am
compiling.  I have a shortcut to the build IDE. Once I feel it is stable I
copy it to my running directory.  The stuff that I am doing will be plugged
into a event handler so feel free to make changes as you go.

The GTK site ww.gtk.org will be of much help.

I can send you a binary rpm for glade if you wish it is around 600k...
