Subject Re: problems installing superserver 2.1 on ubuntu's intrepid ibex
Author rubinglen
I read through some of the mailing list here and found a reference to
ubuntu's community docs on installation here:

So, I removed the previous installation and decided on installing
firebird 2.1 classic. I followed the directions to a T.

It still does not work. I do not get any errors, but the firebird
server does not start up. If I try starting it manually with:

sudo /etc/init.d/firebird2.1-classic start

It reports back the following:

* Preparing /var/run/firebird/2.1...

But there are no server processses running. I can't find fb_inet or
firebird anything in my list of processes. If i try to connect to a
database using isql-fb it doesn't work either.
