To use FPC there is no need to install lazarus, you can just install fpc
and run fpc from the command line. Lazarus is geared toward delphi style
development, whereas FPC compiler from freepascal.org is more like a gnu c
compiler at the command line, or, if you prefer, more like turbo pascal if
you prefer to use a bright blue  (keeps you up at night) console mode ide.

requirement to use Lazarus delphi like IDE.

freeepascal.org has downloads and a separate mailing list just for fpc.
THis is the lazarus delphi like IDE mailing list
