I'm not on MDK, but I'm using the latest glibc2.2.x. I've got the 30MB
download of Kylix PE, and it's working fine here. The only problem was a
neverending fontmetrics problem on the first two attempts to start it
(it was just chugging away doing nothing - close that window if you get
it, and Kylix should start).
