Why Firebird 2.1.0 is not working on my pc?


Hello,

i have installed Linux Fedora Core 9 on my laptop and then i download firebird super server version 2.1.0. i read all steps from firebird web site and did everything correctly. i have downloaded rpm file then download and install dependencies. however, when i try to execute 'GSEC' component of firebird folowing error message appears. 'Cannot attach to services manager, ... , unable to open database' and when i wrote fbserver on m bash screen, i jump to new line and just cursor is blinking.
Please help me, i have to run firebird SQL on Linux.
Thanks a lot.

where did you get all of the dependencies ,random repo's or did you use yum ?

this is the rpm you installed ( google) a link might have been nice
http://www.firebirdsql.org/index.php...&id=engine_210
FirebirdSS-2.1.0.17798-0.i686.rpm


have you checked that all of the new files have the correct permission to run

some more info on what and how you installed will help

also why is firebird a must and not mysql it works and installs just fine

THANKS for your insterest.

actually, only one week past since i have started to use linux so i dont know everything.
yes i downloaded firebird from that source and install it by using bash commands.
i have used rpm command and i have used yum command to install dependency.

may be you re right because i use it in my non admınıstrıtıve account
if i run it as root account it is okeY?

by the way, i have installed mysql by using your yum command but i dont know how i can use it. If you knw any list which can help me please wrote it.

Thanks a lot.

do not run ( login) as root,ignoring the WARNING pop-up .this is a very bad idea .If you do you might as well turn off your firewall and remove all virus scanners and turn off SELinux if you are using it .
because you will be bypassing them anyway

read up on changing file permissions and using a db(data base) chances are you did not make a new user called ( the db name) and give that dbuser ownership of it .

mysql is normally used with other programs , like apache server
mysql also requires a user made called mysql
what are you trying to do that requires a db ?
