And if fpc 2.6.2 breaks any hearts,feverish wrote:. . . ,. Now to get on with using the new Lazarus.
2.6.2 per se actually means little to me . . . . what really concerns me is that I am still so abysmally ignorant and despite hours searching on the web can't find enough jargon-busting info to be able to use Raspi and Lazarus as a tool without having to have encyclopaedic details first about why to do complicated things with linux in order to succeed in what should surely be simple tasks. That's one reason why this topic has been so useful.zog wrote: I wouldn't worry to much at the moment about fpc 2.6.2 not supporting hard float at the moment.
I am sure that hard float support will be added in due course.
The key thing is to pick a stable release of lazarus and fpc and stick with them.
I want to raise the profile of lazarus and pascal within the ras pi community. I am not very happy that we have been relegated to the other languages section. [/quote ]
Power to your elbow. I'm 100% with you in that, for what my support may be worth - very little as things stand, I suspect.

I would like to assure you of two matters:
1) I will not now be purchasing, or indeed having any involvement with, the Raspberry Pi
2) I will not be visiting this Forum again, for any reason whatsoever
This is not a decision which I have reached lightly, but since I am clearly not a suitable person to post to this Forum, I feel that no other options are available to me.
Not quite true. It supports eabihf, i think. And it links to the lowlevel binaries in /opt/vc/lib and it actually works with them. Although it requires a bit of tinkering with the pascal code.plugwash wrote:I'm pretty sure upstream 2.6.2 does not have arm hard float support.
You also need the hard float ABI to make things work correctly on raspbian and there is no support for that in upstream 2.6.x (there is in raspbian's patched 2.6.0)Thaddy wrote:I dont have anything other than trunk on my pi. That definitely supports hf.
In 2.6.2 you had to combine -CpARM with -OpARM and -CfVFPv2 AFAIR. Try fpc -i
