Subject Firebird Help!
Author john_t_g12345
Could I please have some help? I need to install Firebird on my box
(running Mandriva Linux), but something went wrong. I tried installing
Firebird 2.X CS, and it installed and showed up in my system
configuration, but always showed as "Stopped". I tried to start it,
but it wouldn't work.
I tried rebooting, since it was set to start up at boot. In the
verbose listing, it said Firebird was successfully loaded, but when
Linux was done booting up, it was apparently constantly "stopped"
again, a status which wouldn't change no matter what I did.
So I uninstalled this and tried Firebird 2.X SS, which did exactly the
same thing.
After this I tried all the available versions for Linux and all these
other ones would start installing, freeze for a second (at the
installation progress screen) and then say, "Installed!" but never
showed up at all anywhere on the computer.

Long story short, no versions of Firebird will work properly! Is there
any help I can get, any suggestions?
