Since FlagShip translates the Xbase code to C code as an intermediate step and requires object compatible libs during the linking stage, the used C compiler, utilities and libraries must be chosen with great care, otherwise upredictable errors may occur. The C compiler is required only in the developing phase, it is not required for the user of your application, since FlagShip creates native executables.

Check the Linux kernel version by "uname -a", gcc compiler with "cc -v" and glibc with "/lib/libc.so.6" . 

** Mozilla announced that the Firefox web browser no longer supports the FTP protocol (from Firefox 90), as does Google and other browsers. You may use the ftp command ("man ftp") or any alternative software for downloads.
