IMPORTANT: It has been found that V.2.5 Classic for Linux has problems with AST delivery if used with glibc 2.5. With glibc 2.7 it works properly. The situation with glibc 2.6 is unknown for now.

If your glibc version is lower than v.2.7, it must be upgraded before using Firebird 2.5 Classic/Superclassic.

If you have the skills and interest, Philippe would be pleased to hear from you and promises to help as needed. You may use the email contact route or simply connect with him in Firebird-devel or Firebird-general.
