    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.

    However:
    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?

    Install: sudo apt-get install firebird2.5-classic

    There's a link from:
    /usr/lib/firebird/2.5/firebird.conf -> /etc/firebird/2.5/firebird.conf

    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.
