I cannot reproduce this issue with fpc 2.5.1 r16004 and lazarus 0.9.29 r28435.

What is the output in the console during the compilation?
What is the output of "which fpcres" and "fpcres"?
Can you compile the test project with the "-va" compiler parameter, to show the command line used to compile the resources?

For reproduce this behaviour you must download Fpc and Lazarus for Debian from the Lazarus's snapshots repository (now is unavailable). You'll see that is impossible to rebuild Lazarus and compile something.
Now, to work on Debian, I use fpc from official Freepascal website and Lazarus from snapshots (dated 30.09.2010)

I downloaded from and installed all debs with sudo dpkg -i *.deb.

I already had fpc 2.4.2 debs installed.

Created a new project and successfully compiled it.

I have just downloaded lazarus ( some minutes ago. Using fpc from the official Freepascal repository is impossible compile something or rebuild lazarus or install components like sqlite3 or lazreport. Using lazarus from snapshots (30.09.2010) all works well.
(On Debian Squeeze)

Dennis, by "is impossible" you mean "I cannot".

Please, read note 43418 again and attach the extra information.

What fpc version did you use for the snapshot, that worked?

I don't know what happens. Now I have installed lazarus from a clear configuration. I have start lazarus -> package -> .lpk -> components -> sqlite3 -> install.
Lazarus starts rebuild till this error:

The output got truncated in the note.

Please attach the output as zipped text to the bug report. And edit the note, no need to leave such a long text in the bug report to be loaded and sent each time.

Hmm, maybe this is a different error. Can you verify you have the file /root/.lazarus/idemake.cfg before you execute the compiler?

This file does not exists on my pc. I see that this file exists in the directory of a older version of lazarus. I have copied it from the older backup to the right directory and then I have tried to rebuild lazarus but does not work. I have attached the output.

I think the right way to build debian packages is convert the rpm package to deb with alien --to-deb --script. Then the only thing to do is to insert in debian package the right dependencies. I have tryed and works.
