The startup scripts, are in /opt/interbase/misc/firebird.initd.xxxx
there are two, one for redhat style machines and one for general init
scripts. The correct one needs to be copied to the /etc/init.d
directory and the script file then needs to be edited to ensure the
correct password for sysdba is specified.

The 0.9.4 install used to install this file directly into
/etc/init.d/firebird. The 1.0.0 install does it as part of the
postinstall script after checking which one is appropriate.

I had this problem as well, when doing some testing of the install,
There was a chmod or something that was left from the initial install.
(install still worked but gives this error message) I thought I had
fixed it, and posted a new set of super binary packages to the
sourceforge release mechanism.

Thanks, I'll check into it.

BTW: Was that the super server .rpm or .tar.gz that you used.
