There was a problem with the upload. It took nearly 9 minutes (!) until it finished (still incomplete, normally takes only a few seconds) with the error message "curl: (55) SSL_write() returned SYSCALL, errno = 10054".
I've no idea why this happened, but probably due to a bad internet connectivity on my side.

I've added a few build jobs to create & upload Debian package (.deb) files for the Linux builds. Those should simplify a default installation of freebasic on a Debian-based system (like Ubuntu or Raspbian). Only the latest version is available as of now and the files are overwritten when a new version becomes available. Currently the following packages are available:

freebasic [i686]: http://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/bu ... ebasic.deb
freebasic [amd64]: http://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/bu ... ebasic.deb
freebasic [armhf-armv6]: http://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/bu ... ebasic.deb
freebasic [armhf-armv7a]: http://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/bu ... ebasic.deb
freebasic-headers [all]: http://users.freebasic-portal.de/stw/bu ... eaders.deb

Install an package using (as superuser):

Code: Select all

dpkg -i freebasic.deb
dpkg -i freebasic-headers.deb
#Install required package dependencies, if any:
apt-get install -f
don't worry if you get dependency errors when executing dpkg, they should be resolved in the last step and you'll see something like this:

Code: Select all

Setting up freebasic (1.06.0-20181111-0518) ...
Setting up freebasic-headers (1.06.0-20181121-0007) ...


I have only tested the i686 + headers packages yet. If you encounter errors with one of the packages please tell me.
//edit: also tested armhf-armv6

I was looking for a free hosting provider for deb packages, but couldn't find a suitable one. In case anybody knows a free hoster for debian repositories please tell me and I'll try to upload the packages there. Ideally it would be something like "packagecloud.io".
