Subject Tar and rpm - different contents
Author Nick Upson
Which is correct?

The script that does to /etc/init.d/firebird on installation differs

the rpm has:
echo -n "Starting Firebird server: "
echo '$FIREBIRD/bin/fbmgr -start -forever' | su $FBRunUser

the tar has:
echo -n "Starting Firebird server: "
daemon --user $FBRunUser $FIREBIRD/bin/fbmgr -start -forever

the tar version also has, near the top

# Source function library.

which doesn't appear in the rpm one at all
