ASE does not automatically start when you log on as 'sybase.' In Linux, like any other flavors of Unix, you need to go under directory: $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/install and start ASE as follows:
startserver -f RUN_
Once you have started ASE, then you can logon to it using isql. If you have forgotten your "sa" password, then I have already written a thread in this forum on how to deal with lost password for 'sa.'
