Subject Newbie question about FB 1.5 on Gentoo
Author si1356

I've just emerged Firebird onto my Gentoo system...

How do I start the database server? /etc/init.d/firebird references
ibmgr, but I ain't got one of them, and this is Firebird anyhow right?
None of the exes in /opt/firebird/bin seem to have any man pages, the
help directory contains a database (???).. so it doesn't and there's
not a readme in sight! Appreciate anyone who can point me to the
relevant HOWTO if it exists, 'cos this is all making me feel extremely
stupid (even more so than usual grrr...)
