Get the compiler : ftp://lazarus.freepascal.org/lazarus/fpc-1.0.5-laz.20010613.i386.rpm
and install it.

Get lazarus via CVS (preferably).  Read step 3a at http://www.lazarus.freepascal.org/how.php3?&language=english for the CVS info.

Once you install FPC and Lazarus, jump to your /opt/lazarus dir and type make lazarus.  You will probably get errors linking like -lX?? not found.  There are .so files in a ??/lib directory on your workstation that it's searching for.  What I do is search for the X??.so.*  . Usually there is a X??.so.1.2.4 and you need to create a symlink to it in your lib directory.

Create your symlinks.  ln -s X?.so.1.2.4 X?.so
Lazarus should compile after 5-6 of those symlink problems.

Anything I missed, email here.  Also, email your symlinks that you need to create.  I'll add them to the web site.

I have been following the project for a year or so, but, until now, I had no 
extra time to contribute to it.
I have noticed that the web site is not that up to date (and alot of 
versions/changes are going on all the time)
Can you post to the list, or point to a up to date web site, a complete, step 
by step procedure for someone who has never used fpc/lazarus/cvs so that they 
can put a development environment onto a linux and windows pc?
We are a Delphi development house, and are willing to contribute, but, we 
would all like to have one solid starting environment to start our work on 
(and so that any bugs we find are real and not just a badly configured 

We will be using win95/98/NT/2000/ME for the windows boxes and Linux Mandrake 
8.1 for the linux boxes.

best regards
