I downloaded the ISO, 
then did an upgrade, 
then installed the package "lazarus" and subversion to get the
development packages, 
then uninstalled lazarus, keeping the rest, 
then installed fpc 2.6.0 from zip, 
then downloaded fpc svn trunk, compiled, installed
then downloaded lazarus svn trunk, compiled, started
then \O/
