You have two options sit and wait for Embarcadero managers take the decision and release the long waited linux compiler (10 years of wait i think) or get dirty and try Lazarus.
Lazarus/typhon need to link statically all the packages you install and is very *sensitive* . The result a perfect compiled package will produce many times your typhon exe get corrupted and you need to start the process from zero.
Note from Sternas : 'If you try to rebuild experimental IDE, my suggestion is to save bin32/typhon.exe or bin64/typhon.exe first. If the new typhon.exe has problem replace it with backup typhon.exe'. Thanks for this easy tip! :)
After a lot of try and error process, here a guarantee (?) procedure to install RO 8 on CT 5.3
Then open and compile every RO package ending with _ CodeTyphon . Don't install!
Some packages reference RO standard packages (no CodeTyphon) just replace with the appropriate Codetyphon package version and compile.
On Remobjects.inc you need to disable RemObjects_UseEncryption adding a dot at first
or Remojtecs_Core will not compile.
If you plan to use Pascalscript just download from GITHUB site.
And copy the Add-on folder to
Remember to change missing packages with Codetyphon packages.
One time all is compiled restart the idea and go to Install Packages. Add all the RO/DA packages at one time.
Save and rebuild IDE.
Work done. You have RO/Da working on CT 5.3.
