Kylix Application not Working on Fedora Core 5

I am trying to run an app compiled under linux using Kylix 3 but when I run it as follows ...

[root@localhost ~]# ./misimp

I get the error ...

Runtime error 230 at 08058961
Segmentation fault

Now if I run it on another RedHat 9 machine we have there is no problem it just works.

I have a feeling it is just a case of some required components or something are missing on the machine, but how would I find out what was required, where would I get the required files from, and how would I install them to get this app working again?

This is EXTREMELY urgent as I need to try and get a fix sorted within the next 3 hours or so. (Unlikely I know)

Think ive found a fix for the above error ...


I have run the patch on that page against my application ./misimp and now get the follow error ...

[root@localhost ~]# ./misimpnew
Exception EMyError in module misimpnew at 080A8BD6.
Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client.

However I have installed:
mysql-5.0.18-2.1 & 

And that app is connecting to localhost. I tryed changing this to a database running on another server, which is running mysql 4.1.1 and it worked fine. Appears to be an issue now with authentication against the localhost.

Ive tryed change the username/password to make sure that wasn't an issue and it returned with an incorrect username or password message. So username and password are ok.

Any help greatly appreciated :|

I have enabled the mysql configuration parameter old_passwords=1 and have not had any change. Still not working.

All Issues are now resolved. Will requested closure and point refund.

In order to enable the application to connect to the linux server I had to re-create users passwords using the old format then flush privilages.
