Hi, Thanks Zaert,
I read the /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld file and followed the steps and my mysqld daemon is working fine.
I have one more question though.
When I start the ssh daemon or for that matter any other daemon service, I usually get back to the command prompt i.e. :
root@knapsacker:/home/koodoo# sh /etc/rc.d/rc.sshd start
But when I start the mysql daemon this does not happen, and the daemon occupies the terminal I used to invoke it.
root@knapsacker:/home/koodoo# sh /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld start
root@knapsacker:/home/koodoo# Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/lib/mysql
<a cursor sits here>
Of course I can run it in the background, use nohup.
But my question is why does it not happen by default in the first place like for sshd.
(It's a daemon right ?)
I do not know much about this and any help will be appreciated.
Thanks again in anticipation.
