Linux 64bit FireBird Client 2.5.1 required
« on: August 24, 2020, 04:15:35 pm »
I have an older application that I want to build for 64bit CentOS/Fedore. I've tried building it, but the issue with it is that it requires libfbclient.2.5.1. Now, from what I do remember. I used to copy the 32bit version of libfbclient.2.5.1 to /usr/lib/. And the application would work.

Now, I've tried doing the same for 64bit version. But I cant find the 64bit version of the library. The closest I found is libfbclient.2.5.2, but it wont accept it.

Can you help me with solving this problem? It's been some time since I developed in Lazarus, so my knowledge is very rusty. Thank you

Try creating a softlink from to


ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

You might also want to consider upgrading to 2.5.9 (the latest Firebird 2.5).

The best solution would be to find where your application is explicitly using and change it to a more generic Most Firebird installers will add this as a softlink to the actual client library.
