And you're running on an AMD CPU?

In that case, I'm absolutely baffled, because I've done nothing more 
than install LMDE, get any upgrades, and try to install and run 
Lazarus. Which version did you try installing first, the one from the 
LMDE repos? If it's possible that you need to install the latest 
version and no other, then that might explain it.

If you can confirm that you're running an AMD-based system, then 
please let me know what version of Lazarus you used, and I will set up 
another VM and try again.
