LAZARUS 1.0.6 EASY INSTALL FOR RASPBIAN WHEEZY
I have finally managed to master making a binary distribution package using dpkg for lazarus version 1.0.6. The package is lazrpi.deb it is for Raspian wheezy. What it does is that it will install Lazarus version 1.0.6 to a raspberry pi computer in /usr/share/lazarus.
Note this is an unofficial binary distribution for the raspberry pi of lazarus version 1.0.6 and fpc source version 2.6.0.
Please install this package to a freshly flashed sd card for testing do not install on an SD card with a prior version of lazarus on it. I haven't tried to install the package on a 256 MB raspberry pi as I broke the SD card on my 256 MB pi.
PLEASE TEST AND COMMENT - WARNING WORK WITH A FRESH DISTRO!
I CAN TAKE NO RESPOSIBILITY FOR DAMAGE OR DATA LOSS (ALTHOUGH THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY).
