Hummm... AFAIR if you're not logged in as root, then you need to pass your
sysdba password starting/shutting firebird server. This password is (used to
be) hardcoded into the /etc/init.d/firebird script. Open it and edit with
your SYSDBA password. I can't remember exactly but you should have something


export isc_user
export isc_password


*OR* it seems you can also just edit this SYSDBA.password file probably
located at your firebird root dir. BTW, I thought running
{fb_root_dir}/bin/ should have done that for you.

Sorry if I'm beeing confused but there's some time since the last linux
install I've done, and never installed fb2 on linux -- but I think it is
pretty much like this
