i've netsearched, checked suse docs and support docs, but i cant find any guide or how to
on just getting mysql started up and set up on suse 8.2.
could someone please provide either links to start up specific to mysql/suse 8.2, or, if any one
has suse 8.2 and mysql working, provide the steps necessary to get mysql running?
i installed the mysql packages from the suse 8.2 cds, and ran whereis
mysql: /usr/bin/mysql /usr/lib/mysql /usr/include/mysql /usr/share/mysql /usr/share/man/man1/mysql.1.gz
so it looks like mysql is installed.
thanks in advance for any assistance.
edit- here's some copy from my attempt to run safe_mysqld:
livingroom:/usr/bin # safe_mysqld
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
040119 22:13:10 mysqld ended
livingroom:/usr/bin # safe_mysqld &
livingroom:/usr/bin # Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
040119 22:13:54 mysqld ended
what i like best about trying to work with linux- i'm learning to like wearing egg on my face.
there is some suse documentation for their implementation of mysql- i found a "suse readme"
in /usr/share/docs/packages/mysql. while its helpful, it doesnt go over the chown steps needed for mysql in suse.
i also found the log helpful, tying its verbage to a hint found in a redhat book ,chapter on
mysql. i've stumbled through and have mysql running.
but i think it was an accident. maybe i should try it again..... nah, i want to start using mysql.
