MySQL setup openSuSE 10.2, no super user?
 
I setup MySQL previously before I updated to 10.2, so I just tried uninstalling and then reinstalling MySQL, but apparently something is messed up with user privileges. First of all, there isn't a root user, so I can't assign privileges to anyone else, which means I can no longer create any new databases. I've tried running mysql_install_db, but that doesn't do it. Can someone help me out so that I can either have a root account or give those privileges to a different account?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Or is it possible to somehow clear out the tables so that I can create new ones with mysql_install_db?

Hi.

How did you install MySQL? As root? Did you set up an additional user to start the mysql process or is mysql daemon started by root?
