CT install issues was created by Graeme Geldenhuys
I'm new to CodeTyphon (never used it before). I'm running 64-bit FreeBSD 10.1. I've followed the instructions but I really think the install needs some work. For example:
  1. Why do I need "sudo" - it isn't included as standard in FreeBSD installs
  2. Why can't I install CodeTyphon in my local $HOME directory - the install forces a global install
  3. CodeTyphon installs into the wrong directory hierarchy (/usr/lib/), when system wide user installed apps should go into the /usr/local/ hierarchy - the standard location on FreeBSD systems (FreeBSD isn't Linux, it has a stricter and adhered to directory hierarchy)
  4. It did the install and runing 'codetyphon' brings up the CodeTyphon Center v5.2, but where and how do I start the IDE? No worries, I eventually figure it out. Half the problem was my existing ~/.fpc.cfg which pointed to a different FPC to what CodeTyphon wanted to use, so I got invalid PPU errors.
  5. From the CodeTyphon Center I clicked on the "Folders" tab. The path for GDB will surely be wrong. The standard GDB will be v6 which is very old, but still has the FreeBSD friendly license. Everybody normally installs the newer GDB v7.x, but you have to manually do that because of GDB's license change. Again, GDB will be installed into /usr/local/bin/, not /usr/bin/ like the CodeTyphon Centre shows. The newer GDB is also name gdb781, not gdb.

Oh my friend a lot of questions :cheer:
let's start one by one:

a)-Why do I need "sudo" - it isn't included as standard in FreeBSD installs

The standard FreeBSD OS doesnt have anything installed in it :cheer:
CT uses the sudo functionality on FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Dragonfly , Solaris, OpenIndiana, MacOS X and Linux without problems.
Also Sudo is the only way to install CT to Unix and to use-it for more than one Users.

b)-Why can't I install CodeTyphon in my local $HOME directory
CT is a "Multi-User" Programming Studio on any Host OS. So local $HOME directory is not an option of CT

c)-CodeTyphon installs into the wrong directory hierarchy (/usr/lib/)
This is for scripts compatibility with others Unixes and for our future Vision of "Grid-Programming"

d)-It did the install and runing 'codetyphon' brings up the CodeTyphon Center v5.2, but where and how do I start the IDE?
Build the Typhon-IDE and you will have Typhon32 or Typhon64 icon to your Applications/Menu
CT on FreeBSD don't have Multi-Arch ability yet on this version



e)-CT give to the users the minimum working level...
By default FreeBSD pkg system install GDB 6.6.1 and working OK with CT.
So, GDB version is user selection option.
If the CT user want, he can build from ports and use with CT a custom version of GDB (it's FreeBSD)

Did I forget something?
oh, screens from CT for QT4 on the latest FreeBSD 64 installation

Hi sternas,
Can you explain Grid Programming?

Many programmers with deference OS and web or network location
working on the same time the same project
It's a task for the next CT plan 6.x,
but we coding the basic functionality from now...

Sir
CodeTyphon is the only V-RAD Programming tool in this planet,
with Programming Technologies like:
-Native Cross-Build
-Multi-Architecture installation
-Multi-Platform installation
-Rolling Release installation
etc

We have lots of new Programming Technologies to put in CT
the Code Typhon has just started
