Kylix Wont Start


Did a search and found a number of people have problems with kylix. didnt find anything exactly like my problem however. everything in the install went perfectly fine. went to start the program and it doesnt do anything. i have fedora core 3 and it installs icons in my menu. when i click those icons, its box will appear in my task bar with an hour glass over it. it sits there for about 30 seconds and then disappears. i run the startkylix script which is says i can also do, but each time i do that it tells me to run the startdelphi script first which i do, but that never works.

any ideas? i just want to get a decent c++ ide. Ive been playing around with kdev, but havent been too happy with it so far.

Kylix does not Load uder Suse 9.2

I'm just having the same problem with Kylix (Delphi).

It was loading & running under Suse 9.0 & 8.2, but I just loaded 9.2 and Kylix fails to load. It shows some activity for a few seconds and then stops. I notice that Suse had a similar problem with 7.2. I'm waiting to hear what they have to say. (I may have to re-load 9.0 for now.)

By the way my C++ IDE never has worked, but I think this is because I've got Delphi & would need to buy C++.

ok. I found it.

The reason Kylix do not start is because of some virtual memory problems. Type this as root in a console :

echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/legacy_va_layout

And everything will work after

Found the Delphi solution

I've now found a Fix (can't find source now), but you can search for the original. In the startdelphi script add

export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.0

before the source statement.

My next propblem is going to get Kylix with MYSQL. All the answers I've seen so far are partial!

K3 and MySql Problems

I have got to the point where everybody reports the problems. I assume people have fixed them, but have found not clear descriptions of fixes anywhere. I've found two commercial sites (crlab & scibit) which provide drivers and components. However I do not want to go this route if I can help it as I have working code in delphi, so just need the driver sorted.

I then 'lost' my main PC with Windows and had to spend a lot of time re-constructing the PC and doing upgrades. I also moved to 9.2 at this point. This has solved a number of minor problems although the Networking does not work properly & I have not worked out why.

I then went through my Delphi code and removed as much as possible that varies between Delphi & Kylix - so next week problems.

I've downloaded a lot of reading and checked my SQL server is working. Now I need to get the MySQL that came with Suse to work with Kylix.

I had the same problem with Kylix 3.

Maybe it will work when you type
export LC_ALL=en_US
on your console and then start kylix.

The ASSUME worked for me.

However if MySQL is the problem then I dont think you will get a solution because everything I've seen says the Open Edition does not do Databases.

The only thing I know how to check in regards to kylix not starting is to make certain that the license file is in the proper place (normally your user directory).

Check out http://www.dubaron.com/ for a small freeware component that will allow mysql access with the OE version of Kylix. Once you get used to how it behaves, it's great.
