I want to try Kylix on my Linux, but whatever copy of Kylix I download, it is RPM (I've tried 3rd Open Edition and Full (through aMule)). When I extract rpm content into right places it isn't working.
Maybe somebody knows how to make Kylix working on my Arch 0.7 OR knows where to download non-rpm Kylix version?
thanks for any suggestion
Open is free (in terms of no price), enterprise is for evaluation only.
When I got it I had to register first before I could download it. Then I managed to install it but it had horrible fonts (almost unreadable and I didn't find a way to change the fonts) so I ditched it. I think it also had some compatibility problems with some libs. I don't know what format you get there, but it's still better to get it straight from Borland than from emule or something... you never know what you gonna get
However, you can still use a rpm to install something. Take a look at rpmunpack and cpio.
mico, Open Edition I downloaded from official borland site, so it's not problem of version. Also I've used rpmunpack && cpio for trying to make it work, but it didn't too.
You don't have to use RPM-package . When you download package from Borland site there is an installation script : setup.sh . I was able to install the program but not run it . I got the error message
/usr/local/kylix3/bin/delphi: relocation error: /usr/local/kylix3/bin/libwine.bo rland.so: symbol errno, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with lin k time reference
This is same error as in earlier topic http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=7056.
mico : how did you got the program running ?
It's been a while since I tried Kylix, but I usually write such procedures to a file in case I need them later. Here's the notes I wrote for kylix:
then make a link:
ln -s libstdc++.so libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2
As I recall, delphi ran ok, but c++ gave me some errors when I tried to compile some code. However, both compilers did start up normally, only looked so damn ugly (unreadable fonts) it was unbearable.
thanks for help mico , but still same error .
I have installed some unofficial patches from http://www.kylix-patch.de.vu/ and tried many other suggestions like export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 but without luck
