New here


Hello I'm new here. I have just installed SuSE linux on my Dell Inspiron laptop still having problems with my wifi network though (I posted that in the laptop section). I was a developer for many years but due to health reasons I am now on disabilty. I have worked on many platforms IBM VM/VMS, IBM Aix, IBM AS/400, HP MPE, DEC VAX, and Windows.

As a hobby right now I am using Lazarus and FPC to develop some apps for myself. I have programmed in many languages including C, C++, java, delphi, Pascal, VB (Yick),and some nobody has never heard of RPG and Bliss(anyone ever heard of that one).

I have one question is Lazarus very good for on Linux?

Have a good day

Not very familiar with Lazarus, but it apparently supports Linux.

Check it out

Your Wi-Fi probably doesnt work because the driver for your wireless card is a proprietary piece of software but if you hardwired connect to the internet then search for available drivers and install it and then set it up you will be able to connect after rebooting

Installing Lazarus 0.9.30. For openSUSE 11.1 users

Free Pascal Compiler requires:
- Gnu binutils (gnu as, gnu ld, gnu make) These utils can be installed by:

zypper in -t pattern devel_basis

Lazarus also requires these components: 1) glib2 devel 2) gtk2 devel

Important: The lazarus rpm requires the gtk 2 version, not the version 1.2.

These libraries can be installed by:

Code:
zypper -n install gtk2 glib2
Download these binary files (RPM)

Code:
 fpc-2.4.2-0.i686.rpm (yes i686 and not i386)
        fpc-src-2.4.2-0.i686.rpm
        lazarus-0.9.30-0.i686.rpm
install them opening a terminal session (mouse's right button -> Menu: Open in terminal)

Code:
rpm -Uvh fpc-2.4.2-0.i686.rpm
 rpm -Uvh fpc-src-2.4.2-0.i686.rpm
 rpm -Uvh lazarus-0.9.30-0.i686.rpm

I had to maintain a large back office application at a large multi-national bank. They had a lot of code written in BLISS for DEC/VAX machines
