  • Restart Amiga

Crosscompile from Linux

Docker container

There is a ready to use docker container with Free Pascal and Lazarus

  • Download archive [1]
  • follow instructions inside the archive

Create cross compiler

This section describe how the Free Pascal compiler with all units can be created under a linux system. This could be important if you start without a working Free Pascal at Amiga.

cd fpc
  • Now everything is set for make the compiler, we choose zipinstall to create directly a packed version fpc-3.3.1.m68k-amiga.tar.gz
make zipinstall CPU_TARGET=m68k OS_TARGET=amiga
In case opting for the vasm/vlink binutils (instead of the gnu binutils):
make zipinstall CPU_TARGET=m68k OS_TARGET=amiga CROSSOPT="-XV -Avasm"
  • now you have a complete archive with the Amiga Free Pascal compiler with all units and some utilities
