mysql doesn't start


I use a Slackware 9.1 system (full install) and I can't start mysql:
Code:
bash-2.05b# cd /etc/rc.d
bash-2.05b# ./rc.mysqld start
bash-2.05b# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
040402 08:10:55  mysqld ended
Code:
bash-2.05b# mysql -p -u root
Enter password:
ERROR 2002: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
bash-2.05b#
Could you help me solve this out!

Thanks!

Find the mysqld (locate or which mysqld) and try to run it directly see what it spits out.

I'm not sure which packages are required for mysql on slack. Usually it's broken up into about three, the server, the client, and common files. So maybe one of those is missing?

I have the same problem In Slack
Then I have try on Redhat but it's still the same
I think It must create password for admin. first before using it.
But I don't know how to do

Using Slackware and asked then answered all the time.

As root:

mysqld_install_db

chown -R mysql.mysql /var/lib/mysql

mysqld_safe &

And then attempt to connect to the mysql server.

On a side note, a search would have probably found this solution as I know I've probably stated the steps above a dozen times already.

This information is easily found in the MySQL readme/manual. There is a section on installing and configuing the database under Linux. http://www.mysql.com/documentation/m...html#Linux-RPM

Okay, he clearly stated that he doesn't have a /var/lib/mysql so this means he hasn't created the initial databases and corrected the ownerships.. so its going to fail each and everytime when starting til he does those steps I previously mentioned.. then he can use that script if he chooses to do so.

Thanks, thats worked fine here in my Slackware 9.1.

I think the problem was that i ran the mysqld_install_db without --user mysql parameter, so, all the directories were created as root, so the chmod -R solved these problem.
