@crank, Thank you!!

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.

@crank: Thank you. It works.

Please report back, if the new PKGBUILD is working for you. Thanks in advance!

beroal commented on 2015-09-23 16:30

PKGBUILD downloads binary executables, so we are completely dependent on upstream.

/opt/firebird/bin/fbguard: error while loading shared libraries: libncurses.so.5
Any chance to link against libncurses.so.6 from upstream?

Source File no more available for super server.
Please update needed for 2.5.3.26780 or 3.0 beta

I've just adopted firebird-classic package, can I use your scripts for building it?

Updated to 2.5.2. If you are coming from 2.5.1, you are adviced to migrate your databases using gbak backup/restore. Please read the release notes: http://goo.gl/JHRgt

This is the first time that Firebird RDBMS work without any problems on ArchLinux..good work!

vdemin commented on 2011-11-20 19:52

Also, /etc/rc.d/firebird must be 755.
Otherwise firebird isn't visible in 'rc.d list' runned under user.

vdemin commented on 2011-11-20 14:45

Please change '#!/bin/sh' to '#!/bin/bash' in /etc/rc.d/firebird.

Maybe?

[[ "$CARCH" == x86_64 ]] && mv $pkgdir/usr/lib64/ $pkgdir/usr/lib/

Thank you a lot for this..

vdemin commented on 2011-10-08 14:08

Thanks for your work!

crank commented on 2011-10-07 11:29

Adopted and completely rewritten this package.
This package now uses the upstream binary package, no need the compile the sources (this tooks ages).
Initscript taken out of the upstream package and altered it to be compatible with archlinux.

startup script doesn't work for me, it gives me:
check $FIREBIRD/firebird.log file for errors
can not start server

$FIREBIRD isn't set also there is no log file in /opt/firebird

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-13 18:53

I slightly modified the startup script to run the daemon without root permissions.

Note:

If you have warning messages of
"ld.so: object 'libfakeroot.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored."
You can ignore it, it's a problem with fakeroot but it should work.

vdemin commented on 2011-03-25 10:59

I can't run /etc/rc.d/firebird without

export FIREBIRD=/opt/firebird

in /etc/profile.d/firebird.sh
