Linux Firebird 2.5 character set ISO8859_1 collation error
Fresh install of ubuntu 10.10 server with a 2.5 classic Firebird setup. Everything works perfect.
gbak -c -v -user sysdba -pass mypass backup.bck base.fdb
gbak: committing metadata
gbak: ERROR:COLLATION DS_DA_DA_NOCASE for CHARACTER SET ISO8859_1 is not installed
I have tried to edit RootDirectory in /usr/lib/firebird/2.5/firebird.conf but no success.
I can find specific attempts for a Windows solution, but none for linux. Any linux / firebird gurus in here that can give me a hint?

I've changed rootdir to both /usr/lib.... and tried /etc/firebird... as well
Thank you for your quick reply

Closing in on a solution
Ok, got this 1 solved. fbintl.conf wasn't backed up, and since it was a custom collation, it too, wasn't backed up. So now I just need to find the library with the custom collation on the windows server and import it to linux.
