Question Kylix 1 Libc probs on Slackware 10.2

Hey guys..

I know that Kylix isn't the best pascal IDE for Linux, but I need it to port an original software developed in Delphi.
I've maded all necessary changes to compile the project in kylix, but I'm getting an error related to and one other lib that I didn't remember at this time.
I've used Kylix 1 on Slackware 9.1 before, and I never had any kind of error..

Anybody knows how to fix it ? If I install an older version of libc in another folder and change the path in kylix IDE can I run this thing again ?!

Thanks.. and sorry for my bad english..

You may have to install some older libraries for compatability, but we can't tell without the output. Maybe it is worth looking at Lazarus instead? Lazarus is an opensource RAD environment that is built upon the FreePascal compiler, and it is quite compatible with Delphi. From their website

Can I use my existing Delphi code?

Some of it yes. If the code is standard Delphi pascal and it uses the standard components found in Delphi then the answer is yes. If it uses some specific database, OCX, or DCU then the answer would be no. These items are specific to Windows and would only work on and within Windows. However, if you are only looking to create a Windows product using Free Pascal and Lazarus then the answer would be yes. This hasn't been added to the LCL yet but it should be possible in the future.
Lazarus can be found at:

Thanks for the help GlowGlow..
I'll try Lazarus.. I've saw one screenshot, and it appear to be very interesting..
[I just can't believe that an enterprise like Borland can make Kylix and then abandon it without any kind of update.. ! ]

Thanks for all..
