Subject Firebird on BSD issues
Author Chris Meelhuysen
Can someone possibly answer a few questions for me.

A client of mine has built Firebird from source ( on a
FreeBSD machine.

A couple of things are happening.

1. No entries are ever written to firebird.log file

2. Upon connection with IBExpert, after it fills the table list on the
left side, it immediately generates an error "error reading data from
connection" and says i can restore or close the database. if i restore
everything appears to work fine.

Can someone tell me what would cause the connection to close right after
it does its opening queries? EMS SQL manager does not have the same
issues, it connects and shows no messages.

Also, my application causes the same error when it connects, when i am
using sqldirect via fbclient.dll, using my application with the BDE i
dont get the error message.

Any help would be great.
