I have seen references to FB embedded on Linux on this list, and indeed the
FirebirdSS rpm comes with "". I will check to ensure that
that file is what I think it is, but it does *seem* to be supported on Linux.

The docs say that FB SS does not support SMP/HT. Does this mean I cannot run
it on an SMP system, or that I can, but it will just not take advantage of
the multiple processors? In other words, does anyone run Firebird SS on an
SMP box??

And lastly, about thread-safety: I don't expect 'FB-embedded SS' to be
thread-safe out of the box, but is it at least thread-friendly? I can find
out the answer to this with a lot of testing, but I want to know if anyone is
running FB-embedded in a multi-threaded app.
