Error "Can't load package dcldbdesign.so.6.9" when starting Kylix 3 for C++.

Question:

What is causing the error "can't load package ...dcldbdesign.so.6.9"
"Access violation at address..." when starting Kylix 3 for C++?

Answer:

There is a problem which seems to exist only with the Professional edition of Kylix 3 when running the C++ version, and only when running on certain versions of Linux, including RedHat 7.3 and SuSE 8.0. It may also occur on RH 7.2 if you have upgraded your kernel.

Please note that this error does not occur on any of the Linux versions and distributions Kylix 3 has been certified for (listed on the Borland web site or on shop.borland.com.

Possible workarounds: Some people have reported success by removing the SOAP components, and then restarting Kylix 3. After restarting you may even be able to reinstall the SOAP components.
