"Why my Programs does not work on AmigaOS4 X5000? The problem is, that FreePascal itself does not know the X5000 CPU, and it seems to be not a normal PowerPC, but needs some special care. I heard something about special alignment problems. I don’t have a X5000, Charlie doesn’t have a X5000 and we do not know whats special about it to fix that issue. Besides, we both are not really using OS4, we both use [...] MorphOS [...]. [...] If you are interested in Pascal and Amiga(OS4) and want to help with the compiler doing a better job on X5000 [...] you can just do it, it’s open source, send us a patch.
I have a feeling this doesn't really answer the question, does it? ;-)
