Subject Re: Firebird on Suse Linux
Author Steve Staneff

I believe you (the server user, possibly known as "firebird") need to get linux permissions to read, write, and execute on the directory where you're trying to put the db. See a good linux book for how to do this (I use Nemeth, Snyder, Seebass, and Hein's "Unix System Adminstration Handbook"). Also, I try to avoid 3rd-party utilities until I've got the system up and running - try using isql, gbak, etc from the shell.
