I'm definitely a beginner at Lazarus.  I've used freepascal for a
while.  I'll delete the extra file when I get home.  I have two

(1) What does the error message about interfacebase.pp mean?  Why
would the file be in my home directory?

(2) I've always installed from RPM but maybe my rpm is broken or
something, I've had this "file or directory not found" errors on
other src packages.  Is there a short outline for how I would get the
sources (i.e., a tarball or use the installed src RPM) and make them
from scratch?
