Default What's the meaning of this warning from gkrellm?

Gkrellm notifies that there are new email notifications from root
at /var/log/<myuser>. These mails are generated because of somethings is
wrong with the cron.daily, but I don't know how to interpret it:

---------------------------------------------------------
>From root@ulises Sun Feb 10 12:09:33 2008

--------------------------------------------------------------------

A search with Synaptic says that something called firebird is installed
in this system,that's a kind of SQL database, probably installed as
dependency of other package.


............................................
common files for firebird 1.5 servers and clients
This package contains files common to both servers and clients for both
super
and classic flavours.

These include the security database, message file (firebird.msg),
support
scripts as well as configuration files in /etc/firebird/1.5.

Please refer to the firebird1.5-super or firebird1.5-classic packages
for more
information about Firebird in general.

How to avoid that messages from gkrellm? Anyone knows, please?
Actually, it doesn't matter much IMO, but I'd like to be able to do that
they disappear.

Well, one. It appears that source of the error is logrotate, run from
cron.daily. I would check the logrotate config, see if it's trying to
back up something that doesn't exist or something.

I have no idea what - if anything - this has to do with gkrellm

these lines:

>> > error: firebird1.5:8 unknown user 'firebird'

apparently there is no user named firebird. perhaps creating one would
help? and where is this user - is it a system user or a database user
(are they the same thing when you run a firebird db? i don't know, i'd
have to google that one.) is a good question you should be asking
yourself too.

Look like an incomplete firebird database installation.

I've taken the easiest solution, that is... to remove the package from
the system.
This is named firebird1.5-common, and depends on gnugk and
libfbclient1.

After that, I tried to install gnugk and see.., but it depends on
firebird and that library. I checked what was gnugk: gnu gatekeeper, a
pack related with the H.323 protocol and the IP telephony. I suppose
this is the the why firebird ended up in my system, though I can do
without it prefectly.
Well, this is a laptop and is always suitable keeping the amount of
installed packages at bay. :-P

Thank you

Daniel
