Subject Re: Automatically install firebird

For future reference if someone else encounters this problem.
If you edit /etc/default/firebird2.5 so that the ENABLE_FIREBIRD_SERVER
variable is set to TRUE. Then you can just run sudo service
firebird2.5-super start to run the service without having to reconfigure
the package. This however assumes that you've taken care of creating the
password file and related configuration options.

to start the firebird service without calling `dpkg-reconfigure`?
