Description Grigor Lekarov 2020-01-12 11:54:04 UTC
As the current stable version (dev-lang/lazarus-1.0.12) doesn't compile because of "Incompatible types" (most probably because of FPC update) it seems this one is a good candidate. It has a lot of resolved issues and some features as well. Also this version compiles successfully on amd64.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2020-01-12 13:58:37 UTC
I am a bit confused. 

There are 3 ebuilds in the tree
1.0.12 ~1.8.4-r2 ~2.0.2
Which of these versions have you tried?

Please create one ticket for the bug in dev-lang/lazarus-1.0.12
with full information. This means: 

Please recompile and 
*attach* the logfiles and 
paste the emerge info as described on
We need to have all information at hand before ticket assignment, so that the maintainer can look after it in one session with minimal number of callbacks.

I see 1.8.4-r2 in the tree here, so I close the request for a version bump to 1.8.4.
Comment 2 Grigor Lekarov 2020-01-12 20:03:47 UTC
As I mentioned, current stable build is 1.0.12 which fails to compile because of "Incompatible types". 1.8.4 stays for a very long time in testing state. Why it can't be next stable lazarus version? Otherwise please fix the compile errors in 1.0.12.
Comment 3 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2020-01-14 16:15:04 UTC
