> can some one help me write a GUI "hello world"?  I downloaded Lazarus and isnstalled it.  I downloaded the FreePascal rpm from the Lazarus site and installed it.  I can run each program seperately but don't know how to make them work together.  I tested the compiler by writing "hello world".  It compiled and linked.  The [compiler options] -> [search paths] are all blank fields.  is that my problem?  if so where would I find these paths?  I'm new to both Linux and Pascal so plese forgive my ignorance and respond with the most detailed soulution to my problem.

Lazarus is quite betta. If you have installed FPC correctly, you will be enough to enter in compiler options-> search path /usr/bin/fpc
Then you'll need  in comp.options->other choose 'Show errors'
And then you may Project->new project, choose Application, then set the button, change (in Object Inspector) its name to Hello, World. Then Project->compile, save your masterpiece anywhere, then you will have elf binary. Warning: IDE might be stable enough only for such small projects.
