Summary0026917: AppCafe propose Lazarus without fpc.
DescriptionGood surprise => AppCafe (the freeBSD-installer) proposes Lazarus in his catalog.

So i have installed Lazarus via AppCafe on PC-BSD 10.

On PC-BSD 64 bit the installation was ok but when loading Lazarus => error message => fpc is not installed. ;-(

So i go back to AppCafe to install fpc... but no fpc in catalog :'(

Have installed manually fpc and then i was able to use Lazarus with freeBSD (congrat, works perfect :-* ).

Could it be possible to have, like you do for Linux-install, a Lazarus-install that install fpc too ?
Or add fpc into AppCafe-freeBSD catalog ?

That to push freeBSD-people to use Lazarus.
Newbies will be discouraged if they get error message after install.

PS : In freeBSD 32 bit, Lazarus-install ended with error message => "There are problems from Lazarus main server"

Many thanks.
Steps To ReproduceRun AppCafe => choose Lazarus => install it => (try to) run it.

Shouldn't this be reported on the FreeBSD bug tracker?

Free Pascal provides .tar.gz and helps with ports tree entries on FreeBSD (for which we are eternal grateful to ACM)

Appcafe and its package systems are PCBSD specific, and currently unsupported. I suggest to see if you can install FPC via normal BSD means like ports or pkgng
