Hi Milan,

Thanks for this feedback. I'll take a look at this as a possibility.

Point about overquoting noted.

1. rpm is not the only way to install Firebird

2. each firebird instalation (and other software too) is made of files, and
scripts that set everything up properly. You can easily extract the files
.tar.gz package, and copy them at appropriate place. Then read the scripts
execute commands in them. They are mostly simple commands. I "installed"
Firebird like this on some minimal embedded-Linux system which boots and
runs of
the CD.

3. Watch the overquoting, you just sent 12KB of useless text. One more
why top-posting is bad: people don't see that they need to cut the text. 12
seem harmless, but when you search message archives in couple of months
get many irelevant hits.
