This page explains how to create Debian packages for the FPC compiler itself.


An editor has declared this article to be a stub, meaning that it needs more information. Can you help out and add some? If you have some useful information, you can help the Free Pascal Wiki by clicking on the edit box on the left and expanding this page.


Getting sources

FPC sources are managed using SVN. The most convenient way to get sources in order to build a release is using the svn export command :

svn export http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/fpcbuild/tags/release_x_y_z fpcbuild-x.y.z

Building packages

The top make file of the fpcbuild-x.y.z branch supports the deb target which is intended to build Debian packages from source.

make deb

However, users may want to use their own packeging rules file

make deb DEBDIR=<some path to debian dir>

Or use a particular libgdb version

make deb GDBLIBDIR=<path/${OS_TARGET}/${CPU_TARGET}>

How it works
