Installing Zeos in Lazarus

Dear Friends,

It seems from what I read on this and other Forums that Zeos can be made to install and work on Lazarus.

What is clear is that one needs to do all sorts of magical stuff and say the secret word before it all "happens".

Does any kind soul have a record of the installation procedure? (Idiot proof)

Warmest regards

1. Download this copy of zeosdbo (source is from svn - test branch).

2. Download lazarus for your system (windows/linux).

3. Unpack zeosdbo.

4. start lazarus

5. Use: Open Package File (.lpk) from Components menu

6. go to zeosdbo/packages/lazarus

7. select all .lpk files and press open

8. press compile on all open windows in this order:

- zcore
- zparsesql
- zplain
- zdbc
- zcomponent

press install on zcomponent

press Yes to rebuild lazarus

that is all...

note this: zeosdbo is work ok with FPC 2.0.2+ or FPC 2.1.1

I use FPC 2.0.3 (from svn) - this is fpc 2.0.2 with bug fixes included (nothing more).

fpc 2.0.3 sources

For Windows you need (Windows Executable Installer):

Lazarus for Windows with fpc 2.0.2

For Linux you need (RPM packages):

FPC 2.0.2 for Linux

FPC Sources 2.0.2 for Linux

Lazarus for Linux

See my next post...
