It should. From the K3 readme file it is certified for SuSE 7.3 - I
tried it with SuSE 9.0 without any issues. Even the GUI install ran
(which I think I have only managed 3 times since K3 was released). :)

I believe that problem is only related to the Kylix IDE, not to the
applications you create with Kylix. The IDE was some hybrid-WINE
application and close ties to the Linux kernel, not a native CLX app.
I guess that's a partial testament to how much faith Borland had in
CLX to not even use it for the IDE. If they did, CLX would probably
have been a lot more stable.
