I added some debug info into the script. and everything is loading and looks fine. it really doesn't make any sense. but it won't load if i type in /etc/init.d/mysql start
but it displays all the right debug info, like its starting.
so everytime the machine reboots i have to go and type /sbin/mysqld -u root -p
and it works great. even the mysql people were/are confused. and i really can't rpm -e it because it would take way too long. to setup everything, we just don't have the time.
no log messages except the ones i put there debuging to /var/log/mysqld_debug_log
when fedora is starting up it doesn't even say Starting mysqld........[ok] so i don't know whats going on... i'm totally confused. i guess its not that important as the machine doesn't go down often... its just irritating, because it doesn't make any sense.
i can SSH in if i have to and start it, and start Xvnc...
Thanks for the reply
