kylix 3 and fedora 2

I really hope someone here can help me out - I have some linux context (have been developing and selling DOS and Windoze stuff for close to 20 years).

I am trying to install Kylix 3 with Fedora Core 2 - I have been told (by another developer friend) that Kylix just plain does not work with 2.6 kernels - is there a way around this?

Just seen your post.
I have Kylix 3 Pro running happy as on FC2 kernel 2.6.8-1.521.
I haven't tried the Open version of Kylix though.
Latest kernel needs ...
echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/legacy_va_layout
to be run first.
I added it to /etc/rc.d/rc_local
then I start kylix with...
export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5; ./startdelphi

hope this helps someone

I had no problems with installing Kylix 3 on my Mandrake 10 installation.
I used the Kylix 3 Open Edition.

Works fine, and it is also nice to have two development enviroments.. C++ and Delphi (kylix).

Setting the legacy VA layout helped me to run DBDesigner4 (kylix based application) on FC2, kernel 2.6.8-1.521.

There was 'Runtime error 230 at xxx' originally.

Did any of you meet with this error message when running borpretest?

Borland Kylix System Compatibility Test

Checking cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I am using 2.6.5-63255U10_3cl kernel. I have no clue where to look for this library. Is it a missing symbolic link?

thanks for any help.
ok my bad! i am supposed to run testsystem instead of borpretest. It is installed and running here. I have one more question tough, how can i write a code that would compile for linux and windows just by changing a #define clause?

Did you have any troubles at all when you installed kylix 3 open edition? I'm currently trying to install it but after the install, the following files are missing:


What is this all about????? I even get an error on the console at the end of the install complaining that it was not possible to change the permissions on those files because they are missing.

I looked in the install files, converted the three install rpms to tar.gz files and did not find a trace of those files.

First I install the french binaries so I tought that it could be the problem so then I tried to install the english package and still same issue.

At install time I got


Checking dependencies...
Kernel version >= 2.2.0....OK
Glibc version >= 2.1.2....OK
X11 Server....OK
Libjpeg version >= 6.2.0....OK
Libgtk version >= 1.2.0....OK

before the actual install so looks to be fine to me.

Any help would be appreciated.


I'm running debian 3.1(unstable).
