I have a problem with 2.5.8 version of firebird from EPEL repository. After updating Firebird from version firebird-superserver-2.5.7.27050.0-1.el7.x86_64 to firebird-superserver-2.5.8.27089.0-1.el7.x86_64 application failed to start with error message: "bad parameters on attach or create database CHARACTER SET WIN1250 is not defined". I could NOT find any related issue on the google with similar description. After restoring Firebird from backup application works fine. But on other CentOS server I do update again and finally found a solution. When I take a file /usr/lib64/firebird/intl/fbintl from version 2.5.7 and put it (replaced it) in version 2.5.8 application start working again on 2.5.8.

alfa /usr/lib64/firebird/intl # ll total 2592 -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 884616 Aug 31 12:10 fbintl lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 25 Sep 25 22:28 fbintl.conf -> /etc/firebird/fbintl.conf -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 884496 Feb 21 2017 fbintl.ORIG.2.5.7 -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 884616 Aug 31 12:10 fbintl.ORIG.2.5.8

alfa /usr/lib64/firebird/intl # cp -p fbintl.ORIG.2.5.7 fbintl cp: overwrite 'fbintl'? y

alfa /usr/lib64/firebird/intl # ll total 2592 -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 884496 Feb 21 2017 fbintl lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 25 Sep 25 22:28 fbintl.conf -> /etc/firebird/fbintl.conf -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 884496 Feb 21 2017 fbintl.ORIG.2.5.7 -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 884616 Aug 31 12:10 fbintl.ORIG.2.5.8

alfa /usr/lib64/firebird/intl # systemctl restart firebird-superserver.service

It looks like missing CHARACTER SET WIN1250 definition in file /usr/lib64/firebird/intl/fbintl on version 2.5.8 from EPEL repository.

Sorry, for bad text formatting I will try to put it again:

Any update on this?

I am having a similar problem after upgrading to this version.

I get a similar error message: "bad parameters on attach or create database CHARACTER SET ISO8859_1 is not defined"

/var/log/firebird/firebird.log show the following message:

Can't load INTL module '/usr/lib64/firebird/intl/fbintl.so'
