When you, as a developer, want to use sqlite, you should now that you'll have to install sqlite. 

Or else Lazarus has to depend on all packages you can use when you build your own programs. That'll mean it has to depend on almost all other library-packages. That's not doable.

Comment 2 Heiko Adams 2011-09-19 19:07:18 UTC
As you can see in my original post sqlite is installed but the file/symlink libsqlite3.so is missing and for that reason it's impossible to create applications using the sqlit3connection component of lazarus.

IMHO either the component source needs to be patched to search for the correct file or the sqlite3 package needs to create a libsqlite3 symlink.

Comment 3 Joost van der Sluis 2011-09-19 19:25:03 UTC
Sorry, didn't read it well. But you need the sqlite3-devel package.

So this is a missing dependency of lazarus?
