sorry for being such stupid, what do you mean with /usr/local/lib/{lcl,codetools,synedit}?
i don't think i have anything in /usr/local/lib/ and at the moment i do not want any lazarus files to be there
and of course i don't want any lazarus stuff in my /etc/
plz enlighten a stupid creature like me and tell me what the problem is with the existing installation process (or is this just an issue for making a lazarus multi-user installation?)
