I did try (see the other mail).

I suppose you mean installer for Lazarus ?

Why that ?

ARM Linux is a very viable target today. Very famous hardware like 
Raspberry Pi and (IMHO more appropriate) BeagleBone (black) can run 
Lazarus native, as they do have rather decent video hardware. I suppose 
the same installer would be able to support both. (I don't know anything 
about how installers support different Linux distributions.) A friend of 
mine successfully runs Lazarus on Debian on BeagleBone.

For headless devices it would be possible to do Lazarus native with a 
remote GUI tool (VNC / NoMachine / X via TCP/IP). I don't know if this 
is really appropriate.

A "cross" distribution supposedly would need a dedicated installer (like 
that for WinCE). I could imagine that a Windows--->ARM-Linux and a 
PC-Linux--->ARM-Linux both could be viable. Same would need contain the 
cross fpc, the appropriate "cross" gdb and gdbserver pair (or just the 
standard gdb for ARM when using the "dual SSH" way).
