Firebird-Superserver isn't running and unable to compile because libio.h isn't found on the system.

News from glibc-2.28: The nonstandard header files <libio.h> and <_G_config.h> are no longer installed. Software that was using either header should be updated to use standard <stdio.h> interfaces instead.</stdio.h></libio.h>

I tried to install it today, with all updates in place, but it failed with the following error message:

../src/jrd/../jrd/perf.h:35:10: fatal error: libio.h: File or directory not found

(not the actual error message, as I'm translating it from italian). I guess some package (glibc?) update broke the compilation

Any hint on how to fix it?

Thanks for your work!

It dose not work! ● firebird.service - Firebird Database Service (SuperServer) Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/firebird.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled) Active: inactive (dead) since Sun 2018-05-20 00:36:52 +0430; 1min 2s ago Process: 6470 ExecStart=/usr/lib/firebird/bin/fbguard -pidfile /run/firebird/default.pid -daemon -forever (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Main PID: 6472

Even direct run: sudo su - firebird -c "/usr/lib/firebird/bin/fbguard -pidfile /run/firebird/default.pid -daemon -forever" <br> su: warning: cannot change directory to /opt/firebird: No such file or directory

AFAIK it do not need /opt/firebird anymore with this kind installation!

But it runs with : sudo su -c "/usr/lib/firebird/bin/fbguard -daemon"

It's working now.

thank you

@d.fenzl, should be working now.

@fuan_k, as this package provides libfbclient libs. Not neccessary to keep libfbclient from extra repo installed. No problem here with starting the systemd service.

fuan_k commented on 2018-03-15 09:13

Thanks for maintaining this package!

I'm having some trouble getting the systemd service to run properly,

Supervising process 28080 which is not our child. We'll most likely not notice when it exits. Killing process 28080 (n/a) with signal SIGKILL.

Had to resort to manually start the server with sudo su -c "/usr/lib/firebird/bin/fbguard -daemon"

Also, a bit annoyed that it conflicts with package libfbclient, as I was using it with an embedded client.

d.fenzl commented on 2018-03-14 12:57

No problem, for now its just the dev system.

Thank You for your work.

crank commented on 2018-03-14 12:45

I am looking into this, sorry for the inconvenience!

Since the update to version 2.5.8 i am not able to connect to any of my existing databases due to ancharacter set error. If i use the same database on an other system, windows or ubuntu based, using firebird 2.5.8 is no problem, so i asume it must be a problem with arch/aur. The error is the following:

IBPP::SQLException Context: Database::Connect Message: isc_attach_database failed

SQL Message : -924 Connection error

Engine Code : 335544325 Engine Message : bad parameters on attach or create database CHARACTER SET ISO8859_1 is not defined

Due to some reason i downloaded the wrong tar ball.
The current snapshot works perfectly.
Thank You!
