I was looking at the freepascal compiler and saw that it is available for Linux on ARM processor. I am just wondering, is it possible to install that compiler on the N9?

I am new to Linux and there is a lot to learn

Thanks

But don't know if it will work without installing a full gcc.

There are also FPC bindings for Qt; but not for MeeGo AFAIK.

Btw is it possible to port build-essential to it?

I think it's already available for the N900 in extras-something, so if it doesn't already run runmodified on the N9, recompiling it should be trivial.

And what about N9?

I'm programming lazarus with n900.

That's freepascal together with a Visual development GUI.

That works perfectly.
You can compile for gtk, command line or even for QT.

Here are the qt-bindings:

I think that the same instructions will work also for N9.

It's very a big pleasure to program pascal on n900.

You can run the program on a PC with Windows or Linux.
Then you crosscompile it to arm and everything works even with the graphical elements of QT.
You can even compile for Hildon-Design.

I can even compile on device big projects. The fpc compiler is very fast on the n900.
But the IDE of Lazarus I didn't compile on the n900.
So, if you really want to program on the device, you have to do it by hand with an editor. But that works quite good.

That's the one I used.
I did not succeed in compiling / running Lazarus - based apps, tho. Do not remember what was wrong; some X libraries could be / GtK missing..

EDIT : some opengl es examples ran as well.
