OK. compiled and installed (had to change spec file to permit >= 2.2.4
version numbers for FPC)

I installed the FPC rpm and FPC-SRC rpm from sourceforge

Run lazarus and get the attached:

a) Current pascal directory is incorrect. (dialog pic attached)
b) The current lazarus directory ".... %LazarusVersikon%' does not look
correct. (dialog pic attached)

I hit "OK" on both and

*I compile a blank form and it runs fine.*

Tried compiling the mysql example from the wiki and get

*Fatal: Can't find unit mysql_v4 used by database_try_unit*

*and I don't know if it is because the code is wrong or if the installation
is wrong...*

Looking in /usr/src/fpcsrc using find . -name '*mysql_v4*' gives:

find . -name '*mysql4*'
