Subject FB 3.0 Linux Mint 17.3 (Debian)
Hi everybody,
I'm happy with Firebird and I use FB 2.5.5 under Linux.
I tried to install the new Firebind 3.0 but was missing the tommath library.
Found it on the internet and installed it with # dpkg -i libtommath0_0.42.0-1.1_amd64.deb
Then I stopped FB2.5 (# service firebird stop) and ran the install script as root (output see below).
After entering the password apparrently something went wrong.
I don't know what and why. A problem with the old version?
Any help is appreciated.
Best Regards
