Lazarus pkg requirments incomplete and out datated.

Mon Jan 08, 2018 3:55 pm

I do not know exactly where else to post this in your forum. It is not a bug per se' just a mishap in packaging some software and keeping it updated by whom ever does that.


I just installed Lazarus and was actually pleased to see it in your repo, but an when I seen the version and what it didn't install. I knew I was in for problems.

it is version lazarus-1.6.4-4-1-x86_64.eopkg the pascal version is fpc-3.0.2-5-1-x86_64.eopkg , the incomplete part is that Lazarus requires the fpc-source code to be installed along with Lazarus and fpc in order for it to function properly.

Not having fpc-source included in the installing of the package as one of its dependence causes Lazarus to not function properly.

All need to be installed in order for Lazarus to function properly.

out of date:
Lazarus is now version 1.8.x whereas the installed version is 1.6.4x
FPC is outdated it is now up to ver 3.0.4x

Just a need to know message to whom ever takes care of that repo.

Package update requests need to go on with the value add from updating (there's a new version isn't sufficient). i.e. new features/bugfixes.
