Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i already posted this thread in the newbie section but without any response. Hopefully somebody here can help.
i don't know what 2 do anymore so i thought i should give this board a try.
I justly installed a Suse 8.1 on a SCSI system. Everything is working fine except for Mysql. I can't get the d..... thing to run. It is not my first installation and i have done a binary Mysql install about a year ago. I thought i could be able to manage but this Suse version is really getting me frustrated.
Here the messages.
If i start mysql with mysqld & i get
" Fatal Error : Please read "Security" section of the manual to find out how to run mysql as root
In mysql error log i see this
Distribution: all.. but mainly SuSe--- looks like it changing to Red Hat
I'm not sure.. you'll have to check on this..
but I believe you will need to start mysql by going doing the following as root:
I believe any other way you start it will give you that error.. but I'm not sure. I have all my systems packed up right now.. I'm in the process of moving, buying a house.. and shacking up with friends..(who run windows...)
Anyway... once you start mysql with root.. it will start mysql with the user:group mysql:mysqld (I think those are right)
If this work.. and you want it to start at each boot.. just make the proper enteries in YaST or manually...
Not too sure how SuSE 8.1 is doing it but they used to have links to all the startup scripts in the /sbin directory that looked something like 'rcmysql' which was a pointer to the /etc/init.d/mysql script. To use it you would just type in 'rcmysqld start'.
If you just installed mySQL or SuSE 8.1 and can't connect to mySQL login as root and enter:
your \var\lib\mysql\mysql.sock error should not appear anymore and mysqld will startup without telling you to go read the security section of the manual.
