Angry Starting MySQL OLD Error : imeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon


Hi friends,
I just installed MySQL 3.23.58 on an FC2 machine, but I can not start it :

Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon.
Starting MySQL: [FAILED]

Please note that I found some threads recommending edit the mysqld scripts to $RANDOM and etc. But :
I did not find any thing similar to recommendations in my own mysqld file and when I tried to change the similar parts I did not obtain any success and got same error message.
Thank you,

Did you actually run or install a DB yet(install_mysql_db)? What do your logs tell you, with any more verbose error messages besides [FAILED]?

Dear friend,
I have already run mysql_install_db and unfortunately there is no special log in my log file just :
Aug 27 01:15:20 fed02 mysqld: Starting MySQL: failed
and :
service mysqld start
Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon.
Starting MySQL: FAILED

thank you again,

You mean there is nothing in your /var/run/mysql or might be in /var/lib/mysql .err log files with any verbose errors to actually determine why mysql is failing to start?

Are you using the Fedora startup script or by any particular command?

Dear friend,
I used service command in addition to ./mysqld script to start it :
./mysqld start
Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon.
Starting MySQL: [FAILED]
but I got same error message.
In addition when I check the logs in /var/lib I do not find any thing.... unless some logs related to another version of MySQL (previous one).
Regards,

In addtiion this is the relevant part of mysqld script after recommended modifications:

if [ $ret -eq 0 ]; then
STARTTIMEOUT=10
while [ $STARTTIMEOUT -gt 0 ]; do
RESPONSE=`/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u $RANDOM ping 2> /dev/null` && break
echo "$RESPONSE" | grep -q "Access denied for user" && break
sleep 1
let STARTTIMEOUT=${STARTTIMEOUT}-1
done
if [ $STARTTIMEOUT -eq 0 ]; then
echo "Timeout error occurred trying to start MySQL Daemon."
action $"Starting $prog: " /bin/false
else
action $"Starting $prog: " /bin/true
fi

Did mysql start before these modifications? If so, remove them and attempt to restart.

Dear friend it did not work fine before modifications in mysqld script and now after them does not work too.
I think that the last solution is matching a newer version of MySQL ,maybe 4.1, with Fedora2 and installing that..
What is your suggestion?
