Unquestionably. As you know, the files on SourceForge unpack to 19
.debs (FreePascal) and 13 .debs (Lazarus) with no indication as to
whether there's any particular order in which to install them. I just
took the unsubtle approach, unpacked each into their own subdirectory
and then ran a couple of "sudo dpkg -i *.deb", first on the FreePascal
directory and then on the Lazarus directory, figuring that if there
was any sensitivity as to the installation order, the second pass
would probably fix it.

I'm afraid I didn't keep a note of them. I do remember that there was
an x86_64-linux somewhere in the path, but that won't come as too much
of a surprise to you. :) Since I'm the only user of this PC, I just
said the hell with it, did a recursive chown on
/usr/lib/lazarus and had no further problems.

It's hard for me to prove a negative, but I really did take pains to
remove the old version - I did an "apt-get purge" on both fpc and
lazarus, and then did a search on both and removed anything else I

I will give that a try, thanks.

Ah. I'd missed the zip file. Thanks for the pointer.
