Well, the install checks for critical things before it installs, as it needs
the latest versions of glibc and libjpeg.
The minimum requirements are:
glibc 2.2 or they can provide a patched version for glibc2.1.2 or higher,
kernel version 2.2 or higher, and
libjpeg 6.2 or higher.
My system met all these requirements.
After a good search around my system, I am able to __Temporarily__ change my
locale setting with LANG=ie in a terminal, and then I can run startkylix and
play around with it. However, I still don't know how to make this change
permenant and the kylix menu option still won't work so I'm looking for a
more permenant solution.
I hope this info will reasure you that kylix 'can' run on Debian. Just
because Borland won't support it does not mean it won't work. You can still
ask Debian people to help you get around any problems.
