A Common Fedora Core MySQL Startup Error
You may notice that you can start MySQL correctly only once under Fedora. All subsequent attempts will give a "Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon" error.
this is caused by the MySQL startup script incorrectly attempting to do a TCP port "ping" to contact the server. The solution to this is to:
Edit the script /etc/rc.d/init.d/mysqld
Search for the two "mysqladmin" lines with the word "ping" in them and insert the string "-u $RANDOM" before the word "ping" like this:
if [ -n "`/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u $RANDOM ping 2> /dev/null`" ]; then
if !([ -n "`/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u $RANDOM ping 2> /dev/null`" ]); then
o Restart MySQL
