Subject Installing FB 2.01 in Slackware 12
Author ke4dm
I have been trying to install FB 2.01 in Slackware 12 using the
downloaded file: FirebirdSS-

I followed the instructions to untar the file and went to the created
directory. As root, I executed ./

The console replies: "Starting Firebird Server: bash-3.1#"
and hangs at that point.

If I issue a ps command, the process "firebird" appears to be running,
but it will not accept any connections.

If anyone has successfully gotten FB 2 to wok under Slackware, I would
appreciate hearing how you did it. (Of course suggestion from others
will be appreciated.
