I am currently running Kylix 3 and FB 1.5 rc3 Super Server on Mnadrake 9.1
with no problems at all.
All the Kylix 3 install worked first time, as did the FB1.5 rpm.

Personally, I couldn't live without apt-get / dselect, that's one of
the reasons I stick to Debian. I installed (and run) all versions of
Firebird 1.0 without any problem.

Nor did I experience any problem installing Firebird 1.5 RC4 Classic
server on Debian: download, tar xvfz, ./install: that'it.

About Kylix: in your situation, I think I would prefer to use QT, with
some appropriate library of C++ classes that encapsulate the
firebird API. SQLAPI and IBPP are both of very good quality.
