Problem with starting mysql under fedora

Hi to all,

i have installed mysql-server under fedora12 by using yum as

# yum install mysql-server

it has installed successfully...

but the problem is when i am trying to start mysql as

#/etc/init.d/mysqld start

it is showing the error message as below:

Initializing MySQL database:
FATAL ERROR: Could not find mysqld

The following directories were searched:


If you compiled from source, you need to run 'make install' to
copy the software into the correct location ready for operation.

If you are using a binary release, you must either be at the top
level of the extracted archive, or pass the --basedir option
pointing to that location.


Why its coming like that??
Can anyone please solve this problem...
