Why is MySQL 4.0.15a giving me fits in Slack 9.1?
 
Computer: Dell Inspiron 8600
Processor: P4 w/ Centrino Chip
OS: Slack 9.1

Started with slack 9.0 - everything worked fine but the nic card...fine so I upgraded to Slack 9.1. everything works fine but mysql!!

during my initial install I did the following:

shell> su mysql
shell> mysql_install_db

Now, when I do this --- this is what I get

*************************************************************
mysql@localhost:/var/lib$ mysql_install_db
Preparing db table
Preparing host table
Preparing user table
Preparing func table
Preparing tables_priv table
Preparing columns_priv table
Installing all prepared tables
ERROR: 1062 Duplicate entry 'localhost-root' for key 1
ERROR: 1062 Duplicate entry 'localhost-root' for key 1
040607 0:38:02 /usr/libexec/mysqld: Shutdown Complete

**********************************************************

and from there, it will not allow me to access mysql..

any ideas?? My head hurts!
