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

@jkepler Have you updated your local package sources? There are some old CXXFLAGS in the command line in your log. I removed "-std=gnu++98" from CXXFLAGS in the latest version.

during compilation (makepkg) i get this errors

You are right! Fixed the permissions but using fbmsg=/usr/lib/firebird seems like the proper solution. Saw that edit too late :)

There is one another thing: to make isql happy we probably need to make /var/lib/firebird/system/*.msg readable for normal users:

# chmod 444 /var/lib/firebird/system/*.msg
# chmod 755 /var/lib/firebird/system

Otherwise isql-fb will complain:

can't format message 17:141 -- message file /var/lib/firebird/system/firebird.msg not found


Or maybe using --with-fbmsg=/usr/lib/firebird/ is even better since those files are not variable?

Thanks stas-t. I renamed isql to isql-fb. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Current revision of the package has conflicting files with unixodbc, namely:
firebird-superserver: /usr/bin/isql exists in filesystem

So I'm afraid that changing prefix to "/usr" was not really a good idea. Alternatively the name of the executable needs to be changed as it's usually done in Debian and derivatives.

To compile firebird-3.0xxxx with gcc6 you need this patch from here:

You need to add this line after ./

make CXXFLAGS="-fno-sized-deallocation -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks"

You will also need to change the information about the password since it uses a different format.

There are also some changes that are needed in the config files.

If you need more information, just post in the comments.

@crank, Thank you!!

crank commented on 2016-05-18 08:59

Fixed compilation with gcc6.

I have not found a way to compile the new firebird version 3.0.0 with gcc6 by now. Any help is appreciated.
