well i went hunting for the /var/log/debug and its not there.
all i can see is this under the file /var/log.mysql.log
040202 15:44:14 mysqld started
Cannot initialize InnoDB as 'innodb_data_file_path' is not set.
If you do not want to use transactional InnoDB tables, add a line
to the [mysqld] section of init parameters in your my.cnf
or my.ini. If you want to use InnoDB tables, add to the [mysqld]
section, for example,
innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10M:autoextend
But to get good performance you should adjust for your hardware
the InnoDB startup options listed in section 2 at
/usr/libexec/mysqld: ready for connections
I am at a lost to this, its the only one that says Failed on the start up
