Hi Stephen

I tried the super installs again, and they worked for me, both .tar.gz
and .rpm

is their something special that you did in the install procedure,
(perhaps disable the scripts from running).

I'd like to hear if there it still fails, or perhaps if you are over the

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.
