What is it?
Fpcup, fpclazup and fpcupdeluxe are basically wrappers around svn/make on steroids. They try to use the FPC/Lazarus build process as much as possible.
Fcpupdeluxe is the latest addition that adds a GUI to ease its use.
Shortcut on your desktop are created that point to the new (Lazarus) installation.
Meant to be used side by side with other FPC/Lazarus installations. It creates a separate primary config path directory for the new Lazarus installation, so it doesn't interfere with existing Lazarus installs.
It's open source software released under the LGPL with linking exception (same as FreePascal), and contains some open source libraries with their own license. See source files for details. All use permitted, also commercial, but no warranties, express or implied.
none If needed, the tool will download all needed binaries (bootstrap compiler, binutils, svn executable)
the binutils (make etc); e.g. in a package called build-essential
bunzip2 (probably present in most distributions)
subversion client: svn
gdb is not needed for building FPC/Lazarus but needed for debugging your Lazarus programs
libX11, libgdk_pixbuf-2.0, libpango-1.0, libgdk-x11-2.0 E.g. on Debian or Ubuntu, do something like: sudo aptitude install make binutils build-essential gdb subversion zip unzip libx11-dev libgtk2.0-dev libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev libcairo2-dev libpango1.0-dev
Xcode and Xcode command line tools
none, but strongly recommended to use a newer gdb than the 6.1 version supplied with the system, e.g. by cd /usr/ports/devel/gdb make -DBATCH install clean Use gdb in /usr/local/bin/gdb
for Lazarus, you'll need XWindows with GTK (default) or Qt
Cross compiler extensions
Fpcupdeluxe has a facility to extend its functionality building and using cross compiling modules.
Install data collection
Fpcupdeluxe >= 1.6.0a sends some data about its installs towards a central server.
For this, it uses the famous mORMot framework.
You can check this data yourself:
The data collection can be disabled by a setting in setup+
