Firebird adapter HELP???????

Hi Rick,

I actually asked the same question a while ago
http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/181473. And as you can see there was
no answers for that. But, after some trial and error I managed to get
it to work.

Before I posted the thread asking for help, I went through the
following tutorial
http://mapopa.blogspot.com/2009/02/installing-firebird-active-record-for.html,
but I did not get it to work, and that is when I got that error
message. But, I found out what was missing.

I installed it under Ubuntu Linux, and first I made sure that
libfbclient.so was in /usr/lib. In other words, if you installed from
the repository, then make sure that you install firebird-dev. I always
install from the archives.

Next, you do the following:

1) install fb-0.5.9
2) install fb_adapter
3) go to the folder where fb-0.5.9 is (in my case it is under
/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/fb-0.5.9), and do a sudo make install.
That should install fb-0.5.9.

That's it, you can now follow the rest of the tutorial from
http://mapopa.blogspot.com/2009/02/installing-firebird-active-record-for.html

Migrations aren't yet working.

Good luck!

Fidel.

Sorry, wrong link. Here is the correct one

All the best,

Thanks for sharing the knowledge, you're a life-saver.

Best regards,
Rick

No problem. I am working on the code to add support for migrations,
and will share that as well soon. Right now, I am able to do some
migrations, but I still have to do a fair bit of testing. I am not
really a Ruby expert, so it takes a little more time, because I have
to read about certain features.

Anyway, I will share after I finish.

All the best,

Fidel.
