I think we could just warn the user if /usr/bin/fbc or /usr/local/bin/fbc exists, and provide a link to a forum post or wiki article explaining the situation or a way to remove the old installation, or install an uninstall script for the user to use if he wants to manually remove the manually instal...

Does anybody know how the first version of a self-hosting compiler could be included in the official ubuntu/debian repositories (as the repos tend to run with source packages and fbc source is useless without an fbc to compile it)? What about packing the pre-compiled ASM source, instead of (or in a...

I'd like to improve the package before it gets spread widely all over the web. I guess dkl can fix the 'unsafe package' warning easily with lintian. Yeah, only missing the e-mail add. My second issue (old version after package install): It's possible to include a preinstall script in the .deb packa...

A configure and automake scripts of FreeBASIC is quite different, which makes packaging it even more harder. For example, "make install" will copy the compiled files to the top of the source directory, instead of really installing it. I once rewrote it just to make it work to create a Debian package...

@Galeon: how do official Debian packages handle deprecated files, when a newer release gets installed? Package managers have the list of the files in each package. So if a package gets upgraded, it will remove the old files, then install the new one. Since the old files were manually installed, the...

An existing installation don't get removed by the package. So if you don't remove the last FreeBasic version manualy, the new version won't be used because /usr/local/bin/fbc is before /usr/bin/fbc in the path. IMHO, a Debian/Ubuntu package shouldn't do that, or another lintian error will show up (...

sugoi! but it shows some lintian errors: Lintian check results for /home/galeon/Downloads/freebasic_0.22.0-1_i386.deb: E: freebasic: maintainer-address-missing FreeBASIC Development Team I think the reason is that there's no e-mail address. An existing installation don't get removed by the package. ...

I'm looking forward for the GTK+ 3.0 headers, especially for GObjects, since there is the new GObject in GTK+ that needs it (GtkApplication). I'm planning to use it in the future. FYI: GtkApplication is based on gio.bi . Iie, GtkApplication is in GTK+ (gtk.h). From GTK+ Manual: GtkApplication GtkAp...

Well, separating each library into each header file is much better than having a very long header that have "everything". I think the naming should be changed, you don't need to add the version to each header, that can be added to the headers of the headers (lol) as comments, or be listed in a readm...

I'm 17. FreeBASIC is the first programming language I used, and I also use C and Java (ME only).

Since FreeBASIC was compiled using Ubuntu, it caused a lot of problems like this. What I do is to create a symlink then recompile FreeBASIC on my own system.
