Hi Stefan,

My operating system is Kubuntu and I experienced the same issue on 11.10 and 12.04 LTS.

    Just a little update. It is true that other search paths can be easily added for FIREBIRD_HOME, but it won't make any good in this case, because the search algorithm is looking for a full Firebird distribution with bin/ include/ and lib/ subdirs in the FIREBIRD_HOME path.

    In this case (KUbuntu) the distribution files seem to be scattered all over the filesystem, so '/usr/lib/firebird/2.x' won't be recognised as a valid FIREBIRD_HOME path.

    But the good news is that, now, all tests pass, thanks to the work made by the fellow team members of the project all important bugs were fixed.

    Update: Reformulated the post, hope is much clear now :)

      Hi Ştefan,

      I forgot to say it's all working now. If I use the -i option and I don't use my own database but let it create it's own test database, everything works fine.

      Does your update mean I can use my own database to at installation time?



        Hi Steve,

        I reformulated the precedent post, hope is much clear now.

        It works without the interactive switch in KUbuntu if you set something like this in the bash environment:

        export FIREBIRD_HOME=/usr/lib/firebird/2.1 export FIREBIRD_INCLUDE=/usr/include export FIREBIRD_LIB=/usr/lib

        Yes, theoretically you can use your own database, on the local box, but it have to be a TEMPORARY database because WILL BE DROPPED at the end of the tests, so I think, is better to use the one created by the testing system.

        Regards, Ştefan
