Subject firebird version vs version flamerobin to install using the apt-get command Ubuntu/Debian
good at all, this is my first message.

Good friends,

I wonder if anyone has experience using Debian / Ubuntu,

Firebird install from the tar:

I was installed correctly on the system, it turns out that the FlameRobin want to install via apt-get install flamerobin, yet do not apply the other option to download from

requires some packages such as:

root @ dbserver: / # apt-get install flamerobin
Reading package lists ... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information ... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
   firebird2.5 firebird2.5-common-common-doc libfbclient2 libwxbase2.8-0
The following NEW packages will be installed:
   firebird2.5 firebird2.5-common-common-doc flamerobin libfbclient2
   libwxbase2.8-0 libwxgtk2.8-0
0 upgraded, 6 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

the question is: the firebird version installed is 2.5.3 and 2.5 correspond to those packages

What do you suggest?

do not want to be problems of inconsistency to-morrow, you want to have the latest stable version of the database, and OS updates are in manual mode, to avoid any possible problem, now the subject of security is another thing to another post

I was out there watching that: (without applying yet)

I will first try flamerobin, then you would like to see others. known for debian / ubuntu

from already thank you!

I add this as a comment on the issue of versions.
seen that there are differences in the repos with versions.
