1)The services API is only available in the SuperServer as far as I know.
2) get rid of all the X windowing stuff, get rid of all of the web server,
ftp server, any other server, leaving just FB and XNET/INET.
I think that should do it.....

Subject: [firebird-support] FB is so easy to do on linux

I dont know anything about Linux.
Just asked my friend to set up Red Hat 8.0 on an old machine. Ran the rpm
for Classic server 1.03 with 32 Bit I/O closely following the release notes
and it was ready to roll.

My advise to people hesitating. Try it, its easy.

However two questions.

1. Services API not implemented. That's Ok will use gbak. But how about 1.5
classic. Does it implement the services API ?

2. Suppose I wanted to use a Linux Server exclusively for FB. What is
necessary. My friend kept asking do you need this, do you need that and I
said I dont know. Obviously all the KDE, Gnome stuff can be avoided. (I did
avoid it. It was an old machine with 32 MB ram so it is command line only.)

So if I had to ask my friend to install Red Hat 8.0 on another machine what
should I say yes for.

That sounds as if my question is Red Hat specific and based on the
installer. But I just want broad guidelines which will work with all
linuxes. for e.g. you need TCP/IP services installed.
