has anyone run the old fpc (free pascal compiler) on Fedora core 3 ? Mine locks when I try
to compile *.pas source code that compiles fine on an old Slackware installation ....

..... I ***need*** fpc to run or I have to recode many of the calls from non-stadard units
...@$!^%#$#! ( I already tried to make a "quick" switch to gpc, but found many calls from
sysutils need to be modified.... )

any ideas anyone ?
